SOURCE: How do I check if a current overflow' problem is due to the Sensor or the Rainbank?

take the sensor above water level--say in a bucket of water then lift it out of the bucket
if the mains water flows or stops flowing depending on whether the sensor is in or out of the water will indicate it sensor or solenoid of the rainbank
I suspect that the sensor will be a simple float arrangement filled with mercury so that when it is hanging down ( no tank water) the mercury bridges a set of contact points and makes a circuit and when it get to a fill point the mercury flows away from the points and so breaks the circuit

Testimonial: "I should have mentioned that the Sensor is not a float but is actually fitted at several rungs above bottom level. I imagine thAt I should be able to measure a Voltage or ???? which is then connected to the Rainbank to switch On / Off the town water."

My pentair 2 hp challenger pump turns off after 4 second


since it's a new install is voltage set correct on motor ? this seems possible due to short run time you report

Hi Sam,

Combined Electrical in Fyshwick ACT here. Has your problem been resolved?

We have found that a leaking cistern which can only be a few litres a minute can cause this problem.

My keurig b70 coffee maker says prime. sounds like the pump works for awhile then stops. prime lights up on the screen and doesnt let me do anything else why


Mine would brew the first cup fine, then the pump would run but would not draw water from the reservoir. I turn it off, turn it back on it would draw water for one cup then would not draw water again. I unplugged it waited 30 seconds and plugged it back in, assuming that would reset the electronics. It worked fine following the PDPU (power down, power up) procedure. Simply turning it off will NOT reset the processor, you MUST unplug the unit. Remember to wait 30 seconds or so prior to plugging the unit back in.

Pump runs for 30 seconds then shuts off then turns back on


It's overheating. check for water flow, clogged filter, clogged strainer basket, something caught up in impeller,bad motor bearings
