Prevent Pump Burn-Out In Wells
Here's a simple "fail safe" method to pre-vent pump burn-out in wells if water taps are ever left on. I fill a 1-gal. jug half full of water and lower it into the well, tied to a length of 1/4-in. nylon rope. The jug floats on top of the water. The loose end of the rope is tied to the pump's shut-off switch. If the water level drops too far in the well, the jug drops with it, pulling on the rope to shut off the pump before damage occurs.
