Question about Garden
Adjust the screw on the pressure regulator on the high pressure hose is one way The other is to check the nozzle for obstructions. The problem is that there is insufficient flow from the nozzle so the regulator valve is trying to cycle between cut off and working pressure.. The regulator is set at factory for a particular size nozzle and anything that alters that ratio will cause you problem. The screw on the regulator has some fine adjustment to allow for slight changes. Any impurities in the water supply will tend to block the nozzle affecting the regulator .

If the pump is pulsating rapidly most likely valves are leaking or debris under valve keeping one or more from closing. If the pump pulsates slowly, comes up to pressure then low pressure then repeats, problem is pressure regulator /bypass. Or you could have a combination of both. Try lowering the pressure to lowest setting to see if slow pulsation stops. As parts age within pump and debris hinder operation you can no longer operate at full pressure. To make the pump last, use highest pressure as needed and everyday work using only 60 to 75 percent of capacity.
