Gould Water pump Problem

My daughter has a Gould water pump (Jet) and recently it has been making a very strange on and off (or up and down noise) whereby the PSI Gauge goes from 0 to 40 or 50 PSI - fluxuates.

She also has a UV filtration system attached to the Pump system and we noticed a small leak (Maybe this is the problem....not sure).

Can you give me an idea what to look for or how to fix this problem without calling the Pump company.

Thank you

    During the bad weather and we had no electricity,i suspected my 1hp goulds pump was submerge during the flood . And when there was electricity already, i waited for it to dry before turning on the switch. However, when i turned on the switch, a sound burst as if it shorted and smoke came off. Do you think the motor was damaged or is it protected by an overload switch that even if it smoked the motor will not be affected?

Sounds like cavitation in the pump due to the introduction of air. Check for leaks or cracks in the suction line so air isnt being induced into the pump.

Why does brine tank fill with water and overflows?


It sounds like there is a problem with either the valve in the head not sending water to the venturi jet when it is supposed to recycle or, the venturi or jet have an obstruction that is preventing it from creating the vacuum necessary to draw the brine back from the tank into the resin bed.
If there is water flowing out of the drain line during the recycle it is probably the venturi or jet need cleaning. If no water is flowing it is probably the valve assembly.

I need to clean the rain water tank from in side how i dont knew how i need some help to show me how in video


I take it you mean the radiator tank ?. I think the best thing to do is take it to a radiator repair shop where it can be reversed flushed cleaned and flow tested . Some times the core must be replaced.

How to wire a septic pump?


You are asking your question in the problems with websites forum.
You might want to try "Home & Garden." To the best of my knowledge, you point the mouse at the "fixya" logo above left and see a drop-down listing of categories, move the mouse over this menu and click on the appropriate category.

I really shouldn't have advised the user whose title had to do with YouTube and the question had to do with automotive, and I advised he delete and reinstall his software..... I need to go back and revisit that one! :)

Our bath taps which are a mixer with shower attachment stay really hot if you put the hot on first or really cold if you put the cold on first any idea how to adjust so we can have warm water when turning...


you make no sense. From the picture the water "mixer" is the center lever or is it a diverter valve for the shower and water nozzle below???
The knobs are for hot and cold water??

Diy plumbing


most likely that it is a old drain pipe as some plumbers used copper for that purpose. if it is a drain all u have to do is cap it. if it turns out to be a vent pipe u can install a end of the line vent cap. I cant remember what it is called but your supply store will know. just tell them u want to install a vent under the sink not through the roof.

Open water tank


Couple things you can try to help free it up. A nice strike with a hammer can cause vibrations to help break it loose or you could try applying heat, I usually use a mep torch. The heat lets metal expand slightly which helps to break up any buildup. Best trick is to not give it constant pressure, rather sharp taps. It it feels like your about to break it, you're probably right.
