Can you help with our well problem, please?

We seem to be having a problem with our well/water system where water intermittently goes out for a short time (about 30 seconds). I'm not sure what the likely problems are, and would appreciate your help diagnosing the problem so I can (1) repair it, or (2) figure out who to call for a repair. Details/my observations thus far are inside. [more inside]

I want to build a misting fan, but I don't have easy access to a garden hose tap, so I want to use a pump to generate pressure. Where can I find such a pump? [more inside]

My water pump dun' busted

Something just caused my water pump to flood my storage room. I came into the room, and water was shooting out of a tiny metal valve coming out the main body of the pump. I found a small hose ( maybe 1/8" diameter ) dangling with one side attached to some type of device housed in the power supply. Obviously the other side of that small hose is supposed to connect to that tiny metal valve. So I reconnected the hose and now everything is fine. From what I can gather from the manual I found online, the part of the hose connected to the power supply is part of a pressure regulator. And I am assuming, although I may be wrong, that the regulator caused to small hose to detach from the valve, causing water to come out in order to relieve an extreme amount of pressure. Anyone know what happened????
