How do I stop pump from running? Cistern connected pump does not seem to be pressurizing. Pump not cutting off, and getting hot.


Pump probably needs to be serviced. It probably pressurizes a tank and when that tank reaches a pressure the pump is turned off. But just guessing.

Sump pump


I am presuming you're asking about a basement sump pump, the kind that keeps your basement dry. Well, those things are not meant to run all the time. They are usually triggered by a float valve. That is a device that moves according to the water level in the sump (in other words, the hole). When the water gets high enough, the float activates a switch, the pump kicks in, the water is flushed away, the float falls and that turns the pump off until the cycle starts all over again. The frequency of the cycle depends on how fast the sump fills itself. I have one that kicks in five times a minute. Another might have a much longer off time. But don't be worrying about yours not being on all the time... that is how they are supposed to behave. Of course, if you have water flowing out the top of the sump, that is a sign things are not right with the pump. Then you really need help.

Maybe the PF1202?
Probably just the freeze thermostat and not the relay.
Disconnect freeze thermostat wires from relay... and substitute a single-pole switch.
Be careful... power is ON

Do not leave the single-pole switch connected since 15 amp rating of typical switch is less than amp rating for 40 amp pool centers

(Batteries may be substituted by using a deep cycle marine battery with the same specifications as described above, but the battery fluid sensor option will not function. Simply connect the battery fluid sensor to the positive terminal of the battery to disarm battery fluid sensor alarm).

The float switch will be the problem.
We do not replace the switch, just change the unit as labour to strip and replace switch makes it un economical.

Attached a pump to drain collected water. The


the water should still collect into the tank. the dehumidifier had a float switch that shut the unit off when the tank is full. In turn it should have a second switch, probably a float switch that turns the pump on and off so that the pump doesnt continue to run when there is no moisture in the tank

Pump continues to make noise as if its cavitating when there is no water to pump.


If there is no water to pump then it is cavitating. It should turn off when the sump is emptied down and the float drops onto the switch arm
