It definitely sounds like your pool filters not set up correctly. Here is a copy of the users manual. Try taking a look at the detailed drawing. It sounds like your valve might not be set up correctly so pay special attention to that area of your filter.

There is no standard pressure your pump should operate at. Instead it will vary based upon the hydraulic load of the system and it's components. A range common to AG pumps/filters is between 10 and 16. As the filter gets dirty it will rise over time and then you'll need to clean the filter. A rule of thumb is 8-10 pounds over the 'clean' pressure you should clean the filter.

you need to vacuum on waste, when the vacuum sucks down on the pool liner it will cause a high vacuum in the filter that will mix up the sand causing some of it to get washed back into the pool. if you vacuum on waste you will avoide this problem also if you have algie in the pool this will remove the algie from the filter system rather then alowing it to grow in the filter.....good luck

Sounds like you don't have the pump lid "0" ring seated properly under the lid, or there is dirt or leaves on the "0" ring. This has to seal perfectly or the pump will not pump much if any water.

Oil Pressure Gauge Not Working Properly


Electric oil pressure gauges are a waste of time as they rely on a pressure controlled resistor in the sender unit to send the correct voltage to the gauge . If the sender unit is not calibrated correctly then the gauge will read accordingly. If you used thread tape around the sender thread before putting it in that will alter the resistance as there is resistance or a bad connection to earth to start with. TO be absolutely sure of the reading I would have the oil pressure checked with a mechanical gauge . Next is it a PSI gauge or a KPA gauge that you have .

How do i tell if i have a bad oil pump or a bad oil sensor


If oil level in engine is at proper level, I wouild suspect oil pressure sending unit, does vehicle have an oil psi gauge on dash,,,if so what does it read. if oil psi reads well then it may be an oil level sensor. if you have access to a manual oil pressure gauge, you can remove the oil psi sensor and install manual gauge to get a true reading of what oil pressure is while running. if manual gauges shows low psi, then you may be looking at an oil pump.

Can you use a draper submersible pump for a garden irrigation system to use with several sprinklers, does it provide enough water pressure on the outlet?


Here's how to tell.
Connect a tee to the outlet of the pump.
Install a pressure gauge in the tee.
Install a valve after the gauge.
Open the valve and start the pump.
Once water flows, close the valve slowly until you get 50 psi on the gauge.
Have a 5 gallon bucket nearby and measure how long it takes to fill the bucket at 50 psi.
If it fills the bucket in 30 seconds, you can attach heads to the pump that combined consume 10 gallons per minute.
Let me know how you do.

The oil sending unit is located on the engine block behind the drivers cylinder head area.You have to climb up on the motor to see it cause it is hard to see behind the wiring harness.You may also want to purchase a new sending unit because it is very long and you might need to buy the sending unit socket to replace it.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Problem with Convertible Jet Pump 3/4HP RedLion - drawing water 300' from lake to cabin - when the pump is on it holds 50# pressure by itself but when tap is turned on the pressure drops to 30# then you...


If I understand you correctly this is what you have:

- A pump that draws water from a lake 300 feet from lake to your cabin (I assume the pump is at the cabin)

- The pump kicks on to maintain pressure in a tank that distributes water to faucets in the cabin. The pump only turns on to pressurize the tank when water is being used (I am assuming).

- When you turn on tap, pressure in the pressure tank drops to 30 psi, then you hear water sucking from the tank to tap and flow stops at tap. Then the pump finally kicks back on and pressures tank to 23 psi.

- The pump is not used regularly.

If water flow stops when the pressure tank is reading 25 psi, then likely the real pressure is 0 psi and pressure gauge is reading wrong. If this gauge is tied into a switch that starts and stops the pump, then this is probably your problem. You may have partial blockage in your pressure gauge/switch that is causing gauge to move too slowly to keep up with the actual pressure changes when water is being used. Ore the pressure gauge/switch may be broken. Pressure gauges are notorious for reading pressure when there is none. If you can unplug the pump and disconnect the pressure gauge/switch and check for blockage in the ports you should start there. You mentioned that this worked good for the last two summers, if if sits unused for long periods, it could promote bio-growth, rust and/or sediment in the connection to the pressure gauge. If you find blockage, remove it and flush it out. Reinstall the pressure gauge/switch and try it again.

One other possibility is clogged strainer(s) / filter(s) in the water lines. It would not hurt to pull and check/clean any strainers / filters in the system including before the pump. I would even check at the lake for a strainer where the water enters the suction line to the cabin.


I would not assume that the pump is the problem yet.

Hope this helps.

Hobart AM 14 model pressure rise


Are you refering to the water pressure gauge near the top of the unit?

If so, during the final rinse/sanitize cycle the gauge should read between 15 and 25 psi.( flow pressure ) and is usually controlled by a water pressure regulator piped into your plumbing near the machine. Once the cycle has finished, it's normal to see the gauge register much higher pressure readings ( static pressure ) This is the water pressure being supplied to your building. Pressures of 60psi+ are not uncommon. What, I think, you're describing is normal.

All the best.

System not cooling space it cooled once before?


Hi, could be compressor loosing efficiency, i think suction pressure is to high at 85, also it could be moisture in your system, did mechanic replaces filter drier on high side of system , when he replaces evap. install filter drier on liquid line, if there isn't one, also check compressor valve, you can do that by cutting or desoldering the high side from compressor, connect charging port to compressor, conect your gauge charging port, start compressor, pump up to between 150- 200 psi shut off gauge, and leave for about 1 hr. then check pressure, if pressure decreases, then your compressor valve are leaking, if it maintain same pressure, then compressor valve is o/k. you can do same on suction side, this time in vacuum, if it holds vacuum pressure, then valve is o. k, RLA(LRA) lock rotor amps, is amount of amps compressor used to start, but will drop once compressor is running, 11.6 when operating is o/k, does your evap. compatible with condensing unit?, is it right size. check also that you're using right type of freon, check condensing unit & evap labels for right type of freon, make sure they can handle same type of freon. but check compressor valve carefully, i think your comperssor could be loosing it efficiency, compressor could be your problem. good luck.good luck

Hobart LXiH preesure gauge is to low - 7 PSI


Todd - A pressure regulator will REDUCE pressure only. There is no back pressure - the machine's gauge is reading the incoming water pressure as it fills/rinses. Assuming the gauge is OK, the machine is only seeing 7 psi. There is an inline strainer in teh machine, check that for blockage. You said the machine was operating on 45 psi with a reading of only 12 psi. There may be some kind of pressure reducer - I have seen Hobart use special supply hoses with builtin orifices.

hope this helps, if not email me, i service commercial machines and came across your question as I was looking for help myself!
