To "open" the well at outdoor range for the first time:

  1. Make sure the three valves, labeled 1,2, and 3 in the photo above are closed.
  2. Spray and clean the relay spring labeled 4 above
  3. Flip the breaker switch

To "close" the well at the fall shutdown before pipes freeze, we need to drain the system as follows:

  1. Open the three valves, labeled 1,2, and 3 in the photo above.
  2. If the water is for some reason above the lowest drain valve, ie #1 in photo, then you can use pump to empty some of the water.  

If there is not very much water pressure in clubhouse, check if pump is engaged, and tank full.  If pump isn't engaged, it could be the relay spring contacts.  Clean and make connection with screwdriver to test.

This video shows the inside of the well.. watch for snakes!
