    Water supply from where? Pump primed? Where are you sending the water? Into a closed system or just out into the air? Must be a closed system to build pressure.

How do I figure out water pressure?


There should be a check on the suction side, and a gauge on the pressure side. Pressure comes from flow being slowed down or stopped. If the outlet is full open, no real pressure will be seen.

I have a 1/2 horsepower Utilitech pump hooked to a 36 gallon utilitech tank and need to know the cut in PSI


For normal house service cut-in is usually 20 psi, cut-out 40 psi. The pressure switch can usually be adjusted to 50 psi. For any more check the pump specs. Usually you can google that.

Why does my pump loose pressure


Sounds like your not using enough water, and or your pipes to sprinkler is to to small, causing pump to build up to cut off head. I cant lay my hands on a performance chart for your pump, but 60 psi cut off and 20 on sounds about right. Try running another tap when your sprinkler is running, and see if this keeps your pump running

Can the pressure switch on the Utilitech 1hp convertible shallow well pump be changed from 20/40 to 30/50?


Yes, if the plumbing can handle the extra pressure. There should be a nut in the middle of a large spring inside the pressure switch. Turn that nut clockwise to increase the pressure. You may need to run some water to keep the pump cycling while you do this.

I have a utilitech jet pump can only set pressure to 20-40 would like to set to at least 30-50 but cannot .The pump is less than 6 months old .any ideas other than i bought the wrong brand


Sorry Richard,
Sounds like you are correct, you bought the wrong type of pump...if your looking for pressure/output you might consider purchasing a "sprinkler pump"...they will go past 70psi and more

I have a Utilitech 1hp shallow well jet pump which turns off and on rapidly while using water. I have 25 psi in the air tank. I replaced the pressure switch and still have problems.


Good you got it working. Please post again if you have more trouble on this or another item. Also be sure and check what I mentioned just in case you are operating at the margins, don't want a failure right after you got it going!
