I can completly wire a home, I wire the well with presure tank to pump water to home.
Question? I am adding a 3000 gal storage tank and presure pump, and Can Not Figure Out How to Wire in a Float Switch to cut off well when it gets full of turn on the well when it gets LOW.
Sinse I have a Low Yeild Well I am also Installing a Cycle Timer to run the well 4 minuets on and 1 hour off. I am doing this to keep from drawing the well down so many times and causing problems with caseing and water level.
Please any Help on How to wire in some type of Float Switch?
Thanks Fred

If I understand correctly, you will have two pumps, one for the well, one for the storage tank.
The float switch will cut off the well pump when high level is reached in the tank.
The float switch would be wired in series with the well pump, if it will handle the pump's amp draw.If not, you'd need a relay controlled by the float switch.
Speedbump probably has both items.
A low level float switch would be required for your tank pump, to prevent it running the tank dry and burning up. Similar wiring to above.
Using a cycle timer to avoid dry well drawdown should be based on the well's recovery rate. If the pump delivers less than this amount, you will have a degree of protection from it burning up.

Here are three drawings that might be helpful.

I am a firm believer in putting a submersible in the cistern over a jet pump. More pressure, water and less headaches.
I also like making the float systems 24 volt.

Valveman doesn't post on this Forum anymore.

The link you posted isn't valid, so I'm not sure what timer your referring to.
