The foot valve faulty at bottom of the water line at the bottom of the well most likely has gone bad. Or a leak anywhere in the water system from the pump to the well.

Have 3/4 hourse shollow well pump. When I turn more than one thing on such as outside hose and inside faucet, trips the pressure switch on pump, and has to be reset.

The switch you have on the pump with a reset lever is a low water pressure switch that will trip when a load is on the pump like a leak or no water in well and switch will trip to save life of pump. One way to get around this is to install a regular pressure switch and it shouldn't trip out.

Advantage of a low water switch is to save the pump and it constantly triping can be frustrating and I have changed some to put a regular switch in to avoid having to go offen to reset switch.

My Moen faucet will not maitain the same water flow after being on for about 3 seconds.

Try to unscrew the tip off the faucet.
The tip is where the water comes out there is a strainer in there that gets blocked with debri.

Just rinse it out and reinstall.

Slow cold water flow won't go back to full flow

I think the water inlet valve is nearly stopped up with sediment in the screen filter where the supply hose screws to the valve.Cut the water off at the hose and disconnect and look for the screen. The hot water usually doensn't do this because the water has time to settle everything out while it's in the hot water heater.

1986 sei 1200 goldwing It will start from ignition on,fuel pump runs for a few seconds,fuel light goes out,every thing normal-no LED diagnostic lights.When it starts it will run for about 3-5 seconds &...

check the fuel filter it sounds like it's pluged and causing too much back presure this is causing an over load in the fuel pump causing it to stop working or to presure lock

Water barely trickels in

Could be low water pressure, test by opening the cold tap/faucet on the nearest sink.
Hoses could be kinked, or taps not open or clogged with grime, also there may be filters washers fitted to the hoses, on either end.
Or the valves in the machine could be faulty.

My ge smartwater was running very slow ao i changed all three filters, now it runs normally for a couple of seconds then it just trickels out.

The tank was full of water . The blatter in the tank was empty so I pumped six pounds of air into it and it works great.

The water hose keeps bursting while welding aluminum

The probable caures is due to the coolant pressure, do'nt turn this full on, if it's from the mains tap turn on and notice a trickel from the outlet, one half turn of the tap should be ok depending on the water presure. If its from a recirculation tank check the vale govener inside the tank. The torch data will indicate the coolant pressure
