Install a float switch that will switch-off the pump once the water reaches its level.

You can raise the switch in relation to the pump to ensure that shut off occurs before the pump starts sucking air. Somewhere between 1-2" ought to do it. The switch is attached to a 'spindle' on the pump through 2 holes in the switch. I unscrewed the spindle so that I could take the top switch hole off of the spindle while leaving the bottom hole on. Then I screwed the spindle back in. This allowed the switch to be raised in relation to the pump. I drilled two small holes in a plastic part near the top of the pump & secured the top hole of the switch to the pump body with string. Crude, but effective.

Shallow water pump keeps stopping


new pump --not big enough for the job
old pump --motor windings problem, faulty start run capacitor
I suspect that as the motor is 1/2 hp if will run good when there is a need for water but under pressure the pressure switch is set to high so the motor overloads and gets hot

I don't know the answer to this ... your pool service company can advise you. To my way of thinking, you are asking a lot of a 3/4 horse. I have a 1 1/2 horse lifting water in a two inch pipe about 4 feet to my water feature with no reservoir.

Since you have a two inch pipe, why not run a bigger motor? I have two HP on all my filtered lines which are 2" suction and 2" discharge.

Are you absolutely sure you have suction? ... and no air leaks on the suction side?

Are the genius switches any better than the float switches?


If you are placing a sump pump in a smaller, more confined area then yes. They both have their downfalls, and either can fail without notice. The ones that slide up and down the rod can get stuck or jammed, sometimes even due to build up on the rod. I tend to favor the genius switches, but either needs to be checked out periodically.

Same issue, one of two pumps


I'm assuming the switch in Question is a Float-switch that is positioned in-line of the Power-supply to the Pump. The hinge that activates the switch inside the Float could be faulty. You can check it by connecting a dif-
ferent device to the plug, activate the switch
(Float upright) and deactivate (Float horizontal)
Mounting the switch with zip ties is a good
idea.The Float should be dangeling about 3"
above the Pumphead, thus keeping it submersed. Hope it helps.
