Check the float assembly for freedom of movement. A jammed float will give a false indicator to the pump.

I have a 91 ford f150, cannot find the inertia switch, looked the 2 places another website said, but it is not there. Please help, my truck runs then shuts itself off and fuel pump is working.


Please help, my truck runs then shuts itself off and fuel pump is working. Well then ,it's not the fuel inertia switch . Your guessing because you have no clue . Probably ignition problem . When it shuts off does it start right back up ? Or do you have to wait a bit ? If you hear the fuel pump running the inertia switch is fine ,this switch shuts B+ voltage off to the fuel pump . So if you hear the pump running it's not the inertis switch . There is also an ignition system , check for spark , pull a plug wire off an hold near ground . Probably the ignition module .

Backwashing A Sand Filter with A Push/Pull Slide Valve or Multiport Valve


Lots of people are first time pool owners and pool professionals forget to teach these "newbies" about the simplest aspects of pool ownership.

One of the biggest questions we receive from new homeowners is "How do I go about backwashing my sand filter exactly?"

It doesn't matter if you have a Hayward, Pentair, Jandy, Sta-Rite or any other number of Sand Filters on the market they all utilize the same basic valves for backwashing; a push/pull slide valve or a multiport valve.


To backwash with a multiport valve:
1) Shut off pump motor.
2) Press down on valve handle, rotate valve from FILTER to BACKWASH position.
3) Roll out any backwash hose or open any waste line valves.
4) Open air bleeder assembly on filter, and turn pump on.
5) Watch pressure gauge for backpressure and hose for kinks. Be prepared to shut off pump quickly.
6) After hose fills with water, run for 3 - 5 minutes or until water runs clear.
7) Shut off pump motor and move multiport valve handle to RINSE position. Run on rinse for 15 - 25 seconds.
8) Shut off pump motor and move multiport valve handle to FILTER position.
9) Turn pump back on and note lower pressure.
10) Roll up backwash hose so the dogs use it as a chew toy.


To Backwash a sand filter with a slide valve:
1) Shut off pump motor, roll out backwash hose.
2) Twist to unlock plunger T-handle, push or pull(depending on manufaturer) the plunger 2" - 3".
3) Open air bleeder assembly on filter, and turn pump on.
4) Watch pressure gauge for backpressure and hose for kinks. Be prepared to shut off pump quickly.
5) After hose fills with water, run for 3 - 5 minutes or until water runs clear.
6) Shut off pump motor and push T-handle back down into locked position.
7) Turn pump back on and note lower pressure.
8) Roll up backwash hose.

Now you are a backwash Guru!

I have a 2 HP 230 V AC Pentair Challenger series pump for my pool. The start capacitor is bad; however, I am able to spin the shaft protruding from the rear of the motor upon switching the pump on. The...


Replace the start/run capacitor. What you are doing by hand is very dangerous.

Your booster, what shut it off in the past? Does this work through a independent relay that is powered by the pool pump circuit?

My ejector pump will ot shut off...it is empty what should I do?


The first thing I would do to protect the pump is to shut off breaker or unplug the pump.I'm sure you have already done this but most pumps will not run for extended periods of time without damage to the pump. I would make sure that the float is not rubbing on pit sides or has anything stoping it from shutting pump off. If you have a seperate mercury switch float then I would unplug it from pump and see if that will shut your pump off.
If you take the mercury switch out of the circuit and the pump continues to run then you need a new pump. Thank you.

No fuel


I come to find out,the fuel command is controlled by the computer, due to corrosion in the internals, it is not telling the fuel pump to turn on,so in turn, I run a switch to the power side of the fuell pump, it works, but the weird thing is, you only need the power on to start the truck, after its running, you can shut the switch off, it stays running, shut it off, you need to turn the power on to make it start pumping again, now who can explain this??
