YOU MAY HAVE A LEAK DOWN STREAM CAUSING THE LOST PRESSURE. YOU MAY HAVE TOO MANY OUTLETS IN THE SYSTEM. IS YOUR INLINE FILTER STOPPED UP? DO YOU HAVE A PRESSURE GAUGE RIGHT AT THE PUMP WHERE YOU CAN SHUT A VALVE AND SEE IF THE PUMP IS WORKING LIKE ITS SUPPOSED TO? HOPE THIS HELPS, JODY

Can I adjust the weight on a tower 2824h pressure cooker.I need to have 5lbs pressure and the weight is 15lbs and I do not have any instructions


Not sure I can help. Found this:

Tower 2824 12 Family Pressure Cooker (in the description: "The Family Pressure Cooker features three pressure setting controls")

The manual should have some instructions if your cooker regulator weight is adjustable. If not, try contacting manufacturer support.

My 2004 grand am will turn overbut not start...fuel pump?


spray a quick mist of starting fluid into air cleaner hose. Reinstall. If vehicle starts then shut off, suspect possible faulty fuel pump relay, fuel pump fuse, fuel pump, or wiring

Our auto irrigation system wouldn't turn off. We found the Davey XJ70 pressure pump was leaking so replaced the leaking pipe. Now the watering g system won't start. What do we do?


Hi Geralidine
Sounds like your pump is "air bound"...meaning that the impeller housing of the pump is full of air, and it cannot pump water.
Try bleeding the air out of the pump and put a positive pressure (garden hose pressure) and make sure that you shut the airbleed valve off after you start to pump.

Oil pressure is jumping from 20lbs to 0lbs,truck almost dies then the oil pressure jumps back up to 30lbs then back to 10lbs ,


To start, take the vehicle to a dealer and ask them to screw an oil pressure gauge into the block hole and check your oil pressure whilst idling and while driving it.
I have a 1993 and it does the same thing, but the problem is only the gauge itself.
If it is actually having such oil pressure fluctuations, you may have a defective pump, a clogged pump filter screen, or a clogged oil filter.
God bless your efforts.

Irrigation system problem


How big is your pump? How much HP rating? It could be a case of blocked water line. Just check your pipe lines and the gate valve for blockage. Just your e-mail
for your comments.

If you already replaced the gasket and upon opeing the valve, it is still in the grooves, look for a crack in the valve body and/or diffuser.

I have a 1/2 hp pump which I use to pump lake water to my irrigation system. The pump takes too long to turn on when the spicket is opened and sometimes too long to shut off when the water spicket is...


when using the spicket you use less flow than your irrigation system so a delay in the pump coming on is normal...otherwise if you are having the same problem when the irrigation is running..a pressure switch adjustment may be necessary...please follow the manufacturer instructions for your pressure switch.
