When you pull the trigger the motor comes under load as the pump starts to work at full pressure. Check for throttle control and setting for engine speed under load.

Have 3/4 hourse shollow well pump. When I turn more than one thing on such as outside hose and inside faucet, trips the pressure switch on pump, and has to be reset.


The switch you have on the pump with a reset lever is a low water pressure switch that will trip when a load is on the pump like a leak or no water in well and switch will trip to save life of pump. One way to get around this is to install a regular pressure switch and it shouldn't trip out.

Advantage of a low water switch is to save the pump and it constantly triping can be frustrating and I have changed some to put a regular switch in to avoid having to go offen to reset switch.

I have a Century 1081 115v, 2 speed pump for my waterfeature. The motor runs fine in low and high spped, the pump impeller is spinning but it dies not pump water.It is a 3/4 horse. The waterfall reservoir...


I don't know the answer to this ... your pool service company can advise you. To my way of thinking, you are asking a lot of a 3/4 horse. I have a 1 1/2 horse lifting water in a two inch pipe about 4 feet to my water feature with no reservoir.

Since you have a two inch pipe, why not run a bigger motor? I have two HP on all my filtered lines which are 2" suction and 2" discharge.

Are you absolutely sure you have suction? ... and no air leaks on the suction side?

No water pressure coming out while ingine is running. hoses/ attachments not clog. Pulled and opened pump, didn't see anything broken although noticed pump was filled with oil/lubricant but about 1/4"...


Sounds like the pistons in the pump are frozen up or there has been some damage to the pump, like water left in the pump that froze. It could have cracked a part of the pump. Not knowing what pump is on the unit, whether it is horizontal or vertical pump. If it is a vertical pump, most require a pump replacement. If it is a horizontal pump you may be able to find a rebuild kit for it. You can use a 30w oil in the pump and it does not need to be full, about 1/4 " form the top is fine.

Shollow well pump does not maitain pump presure water trickels after a few seconds.


The foot valve faulty at bottom of the water line at the bottom of the well most likely has gone bad. Or a leak anywhere in the water system from the pump to the well.

New 1/2 hp jet pump with tank not working


Your hose size is to small. Use a 2in black plastic line out to the lake. Inspect your foot valve, and
take your pump apart to see if you may have a pebble stuck in it, and remove the inner workings
and clean. Contaminates build up inside and need to be flushed out. Remember to replace the
gasket. Tighten all your hose clamps. Once your ready to start, spray shaving cream on your
fittings to see if your sucking air. I've been through it all and my pump works fine.

Horizonal and vertical off.


My picture is too big for my screen also, I have a 27 inch screen and I can't see the scrolling tickers on the bottom and the baseball score readout on the top. When I turn the tv on, the heads are huge on the top and that finally comes into proportion, but it goes too far. I can't find a horozontal or vertical control in the manual or on the tv menu. What can I do?
