It sounds like a leaking foot valve. Not sure but I have seen this many times on other pumps.

SOURCE: low water pressure

IF ITS PUMPING FINE-( NOT RUNNING, PUMPING ) YOU PROBABLY HAVE A LEAK SOMEWHERE DOWNSTREAM. IS A WELL OR WHAT IS THE PUMP USED FOR?

SOURCE: why wont my Jet pump shut off?

Is the little pipe that connects to the pressure switch clear?

I suggest you remove it and blow through it to make sure it is clear. If the pressure is getting to the switch, it has to shut off ... your switch should be set around 30/50 (on at 30 - off at 50)

Pressure switch clicks off and on will not stop


could be several things that cause this. I would first try increasing the spread between the upper and lower limits. it they are set too close together you can get this kind of bouncing on and off. Also, how old is the switch? as they age they get less and less accurate at reading the pressure accurately and this could be the problem. Longer shot, could be a leak in the well check valve. Water leaking back down into the well and that keeps turning the pump back on when there are no faucets open.

Goulds j5s pump discharging rusty water and green moss particles. how do i flush


If its discharging all the time, I would say its sucking up contaminated water but if only occasionally, that would suggest something is rusting / deteriorating in the system and it "grows" when the pump is not in use. I would have a close look at the source tank(s), the connecting pipework and as a last resort, disconnect the pump and have a look inside the pump chamber.

When H2O runs pump keeps cycling every 15 to 20 sec. H2O drops to 30psi and pump stays on until 60psi. Then a couple of seconds does again until H2O is shut off. Pump runs for around 30 seconds.


If you've got the water turned all the way on, it sounds like your setup is operating normal. If the pump where turning of and on say every 5 seconds or so I would say to check the air pressure in the water holding tank that it's at the correct pressure.

Why does my goulds pump j5s draw water to the pump but it won't pump out, what could be wrong and can it be repaired?


you will have to prime the pump after working on the lines. You can get just the pump section but I doubt that there is much wrong other than priming the pump

Our goulds pumps j5s is running very loud after we replaced our sewage ejection pump last week. Could these problems be connected?


Those pumps last a long time. I do not think the problems are connected. I am assuming you are pumping water up from the pump. The pump has a check valve in the discharge that may not be closing. Cleaning that should solve your problem. Be sure water will pass through the discharge line into the drain.

Pump runs and runs


You can take the cover off the switch and turn the small nut counterclockwise to lower your high setting, as turning the large one, will change both high and low settings, and this may take care of your problem for now. If you have a indoor pump, the pump may be worn and having a hard time getting up to pressure, or a foot valve plugging up, or small hole in the pipe going into well.

Gould j5s, pump not going above 15 - 20 psi, does this sound like it could be a priming issue or not since it is pumping some water?


how much pressure do you want with a 15 to 20 psi, really what are you pumping house water, you need more pressure to supply a home like a 60 psi with an exterol tank

Pump will not shut off


could be worn mechanical parts in the pump, or air in the pump. Make sure there is no air leaking into the suction/inlet side of pump.

I have a pump that will not pump higher that 40 psi. There seems to have plenty of water to the inlet, it is even gravity flow no suction needed. This pump is about 9 years old and recently during a flood...


The Goulds J5S pump is only rated for 40 psi. Is it possible that is the correct operating pressure? Did you get a higher reading in the past?
