Can the pressure switch on the Utilitech 1hp convertible shallow well pump be changed from 20/40 to 30/50?


Yes, if the plumbing can handle the extra pressure. There should be a nut in the middle of a large spring inside the pressure switch. Turn that nut clockwise to increase the pressure. You may need to run some water to keep the pump cycling while you do this.

Most people recommend replacing the motor capacitor in this situation, since a faulty cap will reduce the starting torque. But in my case the check valve was the culprit - there was too much back pressure on the head.

I have a Utilitech 1hp shallow well jet pump which turns off and on rapidly while using water. I have 25 psi in the air tank. I replaced the pressure switch and still have problems.


Good you got it working. Please post again if you have more trouble on this or another item. Also be sure and check what I mentioned just in case you are operating at the margins, don't want a failure right after you got it going!

My jet pump has a 20 - 40 pressure switch but won't give any more than 30 psi. Whats wrong?


There are several causes for this to occur.
1. If it is a 20-40 switch right out of the box it may not be set correctly. I have had this happen. If it builds to 30psi and shuts right off without straining to build to 40psi adjust the Cut-Out pressure up to 40psi. There are two different adjustments on a well switch. One for Cut In / Cut Out psi and one for Cut Out psi.
2. Lack of head pressure being built by the pump can be the cause. This can be attributed to the wrong Jetting in the pump. IE: A shallow well jet/venturi on a deep well.
3. The pump may have a bad impeller, but the pump will generally really strain to build pressure and a bad impeller will be loud, like grinding at times.
4. Double check the pre-set pressure in bladder tank also.

What preasure should it stop pumping


It is factory preset to stop at 50psi but is adjustable. Do you have a pressure tank in line and close to the pressure switch to assist in pressure stabilization?

Pump will not shut off gives great pressure when running how do i fix this?


This pump runs off of a pressure switch either 30/50PSI or 40/60PSI. It would appear the switch has failed and will need to be replaced. Any Square-D pressure switch will do, head to a home improvement stire and they should have the right item for you. It will cost you @ $10-$15.
Please let me know if this had assisted you,
