Can you adjust the pressure setting on a Davey Torrium T45 pump to reduce the power of water when taps are turned on?

No. The pressure can only be adjusted at the expansion tank and pressure switch. Keep in mind that your tank pressure needs to be 2 lbs lower than your cut-in pressure. The pressure in your tank can be bled off at the schrader valve(tire valve) at the top of the tank. You MUST adjust both the tank AND the press switch.

Flojet 2.9 GPM 50 PSI Water Pump pulses-no steady stream.

Is it whirl-pooling because the water is too shallow? One thing you can do to prevent this is to lay a piece of plywood over it. It will float and keep it from whirlpooling and sucking air.

How do I stop pump from running? Cistern connected pump does not seem to be pressurizing. Pump not cutting off, and getting hot.

Pump probably needs to be serviced. It probably pressurizes a tank and when that tank reaches a pressure the pump is turned off. But just guessing.

When tap is turned on pump cuts out after 30 secs for a couple of secs and then back on.This continues as long as tap is on

your pressure tank is water logged drain water in tank then start pump, that should fix it. if it happens again down the road just drain tank again. reason is there is no bladder in the tank.

I live in Brazil where the city turns off the water every few days. So everyone uses a water tank on the roof to store water. Thus, there isn't much water pressure at the faucett. I have a GE Potscrubber...

the solenoid just opens and closes the tap and is rated only for a max pressure of 40 psi
and higher and it will not shut off properly
your fix for this problem will be a small pressure controlled pump connected before the water to the washer so that when the washer requires water the drop in preset line pressure will activate the pump and produce pressure up to the 40 psi
when the washer shuts of the water requirement, the pump stops operation until the next water requirement cycle
such units are used in RV units , caravans , homes using tank water supply and can be obtained from irrigation and pump shops , or caravan places and some marine boat shops as the same units are used on board

Water pump gives a brief burst of "on" every 10 minutes or so even when taps not activated

It could be leaky check valve . The check valve keeps water from run back into the tank. It may be stuck partway open or dirt or scale may be keeping the valve from shutting tight . Hope this helps.

Mastercraft 6.5 Gal.3/4 hp does not hold pressure

no it is not normal
if it is like a round tank and you use air pressure to set the operation then to have water there indicates that the diaphragm that separates the water and air has failed
nothing to with the foot valve but a non return valve at that tank or lack or set pressure

Last week my electric power went off for about one hour, in my kitchen I heard water rushing out my drains. when the lights came on I had no water.The well man came and said he had to turn my pressure...

It sounds like the bladder in your pressure tank is water logged. Turn your pump off and open a tap and let the pressure off. Once the water has completely stopped coming out of the tap go to your pressure tank and pump air into it. There should be more water come out of the tap. Continue to pump are in until you reach the pressure recommended for your tank and there is no longer water coming out of the tap. Close the water tap and turn the pump back on and this should fix the problem. If it does not you will probably need a new pressure tank. The bigger the pressure tank you have also will make the pump work less. I prefer a smaller one myself as there is less change in the shower pressure when the pump cycles than with a bigger tank but this is just a matter of prefference. Some people prefer a larger tank as it uses less power by the pump not working as often.

Caravan water pump not working changed pump, fuses seem ok still not working

The water pump is usually started by either
1. a drop in pressure when a tap is opened, and an in-line pressure switch turns the pup on


2. a microswitch on every tap.

which ever system your caravan has, it will be one of those thats not kicking in the pump.
