How do you backflow a pool pump?


I assume you mean backwash the filter. The pump will always pump in one direction.

I am also assuming that you have a sand filter with a filter control valve.

If your filter's waste discharge needs a hose attached to route the discharge to a ditch or other suitable location, be sure to attach the hose before beginning this process.

Turn the pump off. Set the filter control valve to the backwash position. Turn the pump on and run for 30 sec to 1 minute until the water being discharged looks clear. If your filter control valve has a Rinse setting, turn the pump off, set it to Rinse and run the pump for about 30 sec. Turn the pump off. Set the Set the filter control valve back to Filter and turn the pump back on.

New pump overheats


Hi,
ICE is potential freeze condition warning. Should not relate to the pump issue.
Is your new motor same Amperage as old one?
Is the wet end(pump) on the new pump the same horse power as the one it replaced?
Lack of ventilation for the motor, or clogged motor vents.
Check for undersized wiring or poor electrical connections.
Check if your pump has a thermal overload, this safety mechanism will turn the motor off when it gets too hot. The pump should restart once it cools down.
Remove the intake plumbing and visually inspect the impeller, observe for impeller failure. Spin the impeller to see if it turns without impedance.

Before you inspect the pump turn of the power to avoid electrical shock!

I had a water line bust. After fixing the leak, I lost water pressure. Someone tried to fix the problem and now we have little to no water flow. I have to pumps . The smaller pump that feeds the house is...


The nut on the larger spring in the pump pressure switch: Usually the larger nut in the pump pressure control switch adjusts the pump cut-on ("cut-in") AND pump cut-off pressures simultaneously. This is the left-hand spring (and nut) in our photo. That means that whatever the gap is between the cut-on pressure and the cut-off pressure, that gap is maintained, but the entire operating range of the pump is raised or lowered. Turning the large nut clockwise RAISES BOTH the cut-on and cut-off pressures. So turning the large nut clockwise shifts the whole operating pressure range of the pump UP to HIGHER pressures.
Conversely, turning the large nut counter-clockwise will lower the whole pump operating range. This is the simplest adjustment to make.
Photo (left) courtesy of a reader.
The nut atop the smaller spring in the pump pressure switch: this nut is used to narrow or widen the gap between the pump cut-on and pump cut-off pressures. This is the right-hand spring (and nut) in our photo).

Turning the small nut clockwise (tighter) will RAISE the CUT-OFF pressure, and vice versa, loosening or turning the nut counter-clockwise will lower the cut-off pressure. Watch out! If you loosen this nut too much you can set the cut-off pressure below the cut-on pressure and the pump will turn on and run forever (or until it burns up.)
Which nut to turn in the pump pressure switch control, and which direction to turn it, are usually visible on a label inside the pressure switch cover. Above we show photos of a common Square D water pump pressure control switch (Schneider Electric) and the label with pump control adjustment details. [Click to enlarge].
Here are Example Pump Pressure Switch Adjustment Instructions from Square -D Understanding how pump pressure control switches work and which way to turn which of the two nuts in the control can be confusing.
On a Square-D Pumptrol® 9013FSF-2 pump pressure switch, for example, Square D tells us that we
  • Turn the Range Nut #1 (the larger spring and nut) clockwise (to the right or "down") to raise [both] cut-on and cut-off pressures. This is "tightening the nut down" against the spring. ("Rightie-tightie, leftie-loosie" as Mara Gieseke says to her kids). Thanks to reader Rise for this clarification.

    In other words, adjusting the pressure on this spring shifts the whole operating range of the switch up or down, but keeps the difference between cut-in and cut-out the same, whatever it happens to be (typically it's about 20 psi from the factory.)

    If you want the pump to turn ON (cut-in) sooner
    , that is, at a higher water pressure, turn the nut clockwise or "tighter".

    If you want the water pump to turn ON (cut-in) later, that is, at a lower water pressure, turn the nut counterclockwise or "looser".

  • Turn the Differential Nut #2 (the smaller spring and nut) clockwise to raise the cut-out pressure.

    If you want the water pump to turn OFF (cut out or cut-off) at a higher water pressure, turn this nut clockwise or "tighter".

    If you want the water pump to turn OFF (cut out or cut-off) at a lower water pressure, turn this nut counter clockwise or "looser"

    Here is why the small nut is called the "Differential"

Spin cycle does not work.Water does not drain. When I run it, I get multiple beeps. The manuals to turn off and unplug. Repeat if necessary. Problem not solved.


Unplug the machine slide it out and tip back so you can reach under it. In the front corner underneath is the pump with a paddle wheel type fan on it that shpould turn very freely. If it is turning freely and won't pump it is either the pump or motor controller board.
Most likely something stuck in it though, try turning it to free it, If that works pump out the water if you can and then remove the pump. If it won't turn remove all the water you can, tip back at least 45 degrees and disconnect the 2 plugs from the pump (power unplugged first) then remove the pump by turning anticlockwise, it will first move just a little and stop, at this point realse the catch that is stopping it turning further and remove. clear what ever is blocking it. If the pump is rusty or the copper windings appear burnt (will be darker in the middle section REPLACE THE PUMP.
Re fit the pump, make sure it turns freely, if not take it off and try again.
