Purex triton Tagelus Model 10B The filter pressure is 45 psi with pump off in all valve positins. Pressure increases to 60 (max gauge reading!) when backwashing. How can the pressure be normalized?

Pool was closed over winter. Plenty of leaves and algae. Baskets and filter strainer are emptied. Water is pumping.

What causes my booster pump to increase pressure even after I shut power and or water supply off?


something wrong here. your incoming pressure is 4 psi ( tank pressure to the pump and you use a pump to boost pressure to a maximum of 65 psi at which point the pump is shut off ( all taps close off)
yet with no pumps running the pressure goes up to 100 psi
Find where you are getting pressure in that is making the pump leak
if you have 100 psi to the pump when it is turned off, then it would not be turning on ( power on) as the shut off pressure is set at 65 psi and the line pressure is 100 psi

With only one adjustment *****, can't figure out how to adjust cut-in and cut-out levels.


There is only one adjustment screw because it has a fixed differential. A 20 lb differential is standard. I recommend a 40-60 pressure setting which gives you an average water press of 500 psi. With a 40 cut-in, your tank pressure should be set at 38 psi. There is a schrader valve at the top of the tank. Use a tire gauge to set it at 38 psi. Do that first. Now set your press switch by running water and observing at what pressure the pump kicks in at. Don't worry about the cut-out pressure. It's trial and error.
Let the pressure build up above 45 psi and then run water until you hear the pump kick on. Keep doing this until the pump kicks on at 40 psi. It may take a few tries, so I recommend having someone else turning the water on and off for you.

Oil Pressure gauge is all of a sudden reading 80 psi! Was reading about 60 before. No change is the way truck runs. What is happening?


May be blockage in the system caused by either Dirt or heavy build up of carbon in system but more likely the filter is doing its job and his becoming blocked.
Change the oil when it is HOT and the filter and you should be OK

PUMP JUST RUNS AND WONT SHUT OFF MQ3-45


DOES THIS SYSTEM FEED YOUR HOME.DOES IT HAVE PSI TANK. WHAT COULD BE HAPPENING.IS.THERE IS A PRESSURE SWITCH (fyg-2) THAT WAS INSTALLED ON YOUR SYSTEM. THIS ITEM, DEPENDING ON IT'S MANUFACTURE.COME PRESET AT 20/40 PSI OR 30/50 PSI OR 40/60 PSI. THAT MEANS ON START/OFF START PSI. SO IF YOUR PUMP CONTINUES TO PUMP AND WON'T TURN OFF.YOUR SYSTEM PUMPS MAY HAVE SOME WEAR TO IT OR A POSSIBLE HOLE IN THE DROP PIPE THAT IS NOT ALLOWING YOUR SYSTEM TO REACH PSI THAT IT SET FOR. ALL U HAVE TO DO IS READJUST THE PRESSURE SWITCH TO THE PSI READING THAT IS ON PSI GAUGE.

When i first start the truck after it has been sitting for awhile, i step on the gas and it feels and feels like the truck is gonna stall


The first thing to do is check the fuel pressure it should be between 60-66 psi with the key on and engine off.This fuel system has to have at least 52 psi to open the popet valve inside the fuel injector.After you check the fuel pressure start the engine with the pressure gauge still connected push the throttle sharply and look at the gauge,if the pressure drops instead of increasing then replace the fuel pump and filter.Also if fuel pressure is on the boarder line off 52 psi then need to replace the fuel pump and filter.

How do I check the fuel pressure on a 2000 model mazda millenia with a 2.3 engine in it


Hi.

You connect a fuel pressure gauge like this to the pressure rail. Pressure in this car must be between 35 and 45 psi. If pressure is too low look for kinked fuel lines and eventually replace the pump. If the pressure drops down more than 10 psi in five minutes or if the pressure is considerably higher than that replace the fuel pressure regulator. Below the parts that may need testing:

1. Fuel tank
2. Shut-off valve
3. Non-return valve
4. Fuel pump
5. Fuel pump (Transfer)
6. Fuel filter (High-pressure)
7. Injector
8. Pressure regulator
9. PRC solenoid valve
10. Fuel pump relay
11. Fuel pump resistor and relay (KJ model)

My oil psi be on my 2003 chevy astro awd van


The oil pressure should be 60 to 65 psi when engine started cold and at operating temperature should be 40 to 50 PSI at idle and 45 to 60 at higher RPM's with engine at operating temperature. Low pressure could be a faulty oil pressure sending unit or a bad oil pressure regulator valve. Good luck and hope this helps, and you could always have your oil pressure check manually to ensure a correct pressure reading. If you think it could be the oil pressure relief valve (Sometimes) or the check valve (not very often). One is located inside the oil pump and the other in the adapter on the motor that the filter screws on to. If you also have a problem with the oil pressure being erratic when the motor has been running I would be looking at the valves.
