It is either a broken impeller in the pump or if it was just drained or new install, then an air lock most likely. Try disconnecting power, then reconnecting, then disconnecting, etc. Until prime is achieved.

With the water running the MQ pump runs intermittently


This is a problem with your bladder in the pressure tank or the pressure switch. Ether one will produce this cycling on and off. Good luck.

How do you adjust the water pressure on a flotec fp4012-10 water pump?


You can not adjust the 'water pressure' the pump delivers but you can regulate the flow by installing a valve on the pump discharge and then partially closing it to reduce flow and increase pressure.

Pump spinning but not getting up to speed then shuts off


You have a pressurized system using a pressure tank.This is a case of an air logged pressure tank. Meaning there is more air than water in the pressure tank. The pressure tank must hold 2/3 water and 1/3 air of its total volume. Installed at the tank is the air volume control to take care of this proportion. Should the air volume control malfunction or becomes defective, the air-water ratio is affected. And then,
the pressure tank becomes either air logged or water
logged.
SOLUTION:
1. Shut the power off, and open the discharge line
gate valve to flush the water in the pipe lines.
2. Open the drain plug of the pressure tank to empty
all the water at the pressure tank.
3. Close the drain plug, and put the power on.
4. Start the pump, and set the flow control valve 1/4
open.
5. The pump will normally run.

Our pond water pump has no pressure so we have no water


1. Pump burned up. 2. Check to see if there is something blocking the intake. 3. Plug it in to a well grounded electrical outlet. Hope you get it working.

Pond pump types


There are basically two types of pond pumps to choose from - externally mounted and submersible. External pumps were traditionally used in water gardens. They sit outside the pond, with a hose that leads from a strainer in the pond to the pump. From there the water is forced either to a waterfall, stream or fountain. Because external pond pumps are often noisy and require extra plumbing, they are usually not suited for most backyard ponds. Due to easier accessibility and ease of repair, however, external water pumps are often the best choice for larger water gardens and public installations. Submersible water pumps are usually preferred by most do-it-yourselfers. They sit underwater where they are quiet and unseen. These pumps are easy to install, require no priming and stay cool thanks to the surrounding water. Submersible pumps draw water from the bottom of the pond, either through a strainer or biological filter. A hose attached to the outlet then feeds water to whichever water feature you have installed.
