When H2O runs pump keeps cycling every 15 to 20 sec. H2O drops to 30psi and pump stays on until 60psi. Then a couple of seconds does again until H2O is shut off. Pump runs for around 30 seconds.


If you've got the water turned all the way on, it sounds like your setup is operating normal. If the pump where turning of and on say every 5 seconds or so I would say to check the air pressure in the water holding tank that it's at the correct pressure.

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.

I have a Mastercraft1/2 HP self priming Shallow well jet water pump, the water fell below the intake in my well and I quickly noticed and turned off the pump. We had water delivered and I'm not su


If water is back up above the intake, it should prime itself in a few minutes. As long as you don't let the case get hot to the touch it should be okay to run dry.

If it fails to prime and pump up pressure, you may have to prime it.

Have an Onga JJ400 jet water pump several years old, pump is working but delivering poor water flow


Is the pump building pressure and shutting off? If the pump keeps running but not building pressure than there is most likely a problem with the well (low volume). Also check for a water logged bladder tank.

Do I have to hook my tank to draw water from my well?


A bladder tank is designed to give a certain amount of gallons of "draw down" before the pump turns on. The pump will work with or without a bladder tank but will come on every time water is used. Well pumps (Jet or submersible) can run for extended periods of time without causing harm to the pump, but a pump that turns on and off constantly will eventually burn out because it is so hard on the pump.
Jet pumps need to keep "head pressure" to efficiently create the vacuum necessary to draw water from the drop pipe, this is partially what a well tank does.

Replace the fuel filter first. When you turn the key on, the fuel pump should run for a few moments, then turn off. If it keeps running, then replace the pump as well. Suggest having the fuel system pressure checked at the engine itself. Hope this helps!

We have a well that has recently lost all water pressure. We have now replaced the points, the switch, the valves, and the pipe from the pump to the tank. We have bypassed the underground piping to see if...


What kind of pump is it? If it is a jet pump, it may need to be primed or the foot valve in the well could be blocked with rust or dirt. On a shallow well or jet pump, check it for suction side leaks. turn it off, and see if water seeps out of any of the joints. A small amount of air seeping in will make the pump airbound and keep it from building pressure.

Cabin pump, primed fine only goes to28psi and keeps running


Sounds like the injector nozzle is plugged. This nozzle is directly inside the influent line on single line jets and down in the well on two-line jets. I'm assuming you have it primed correctly. If this happened suddenly the it'd definitely the injector nozzle. It it was a gradual process over time then I would say it's either a badly worn nozzle or worn impeller.

Turn 92 Escort 5 speed to right & engine goes dead even in a curv


if you jack up the right side of the car while its running does it die?...........just thinking that maybe the pickup has fallen off of the fuel pump in the gas tank so when the fuel moves to the left side of the tank the end of the pump may not be immersed in fuel.
hope this helps...keep me posted its definitely an interesting problem.....Good luck!
