Water pump installed 1.5 years ago. It went shut off. It provides full pressure and water is flowing but it won't shut of. I turn it off and on at the breaker
A leak anywhere in the well piping lowers the water pressure in the system. So if the pressure is too low, your pump won't shut off and instead will continue running all the time. Leaky pipes make it impossible for your water system to reach the required pressure for the pump to stop running. This is especially true if the pipe leading from the well to the pressure tank has leaks; older well pipes are often galvanized and can corrode. It'll bring some water into your tank, but if enough water leaks out, the tank might not reach a high enough pressure to shut off the pump.
