I have a bore well which is 850 ft deep. If I switch it on in the morning, it gives me water for 45 minutes, and every now and then I have to keep checking the water flow. This is becoming problematic since morning time it is usually busy getting ready to office and making sure my kids are ready as well. I have observed that when the water flow decreases the Amps will be at 13, is it possible to install auto power cut off switch if Amps fall below 14? Any help on this will be very helpful to me.
