This is what kind of pump? Non- automotive trash pump, right? It has to be primed by filling the volute with water. Failing to do so will burn up the ceramic seal. It isn't designed to pump air. Good luck

Water leak in split a/c.


When compressor pumps the vapor of the freon passes through condenser coil pipelines where the heat removed by fan and becomes low pressure low temp and then travels as liquid. By removal of heat in the room again the freon get vaporized and sent to compressor. In this cycling if your indoor coil is dust blocked the room heat can't be removed. resulting this the liquid becomes forming ice over the coil. And when it cut off by coil temp, the fan only will work and ice get defrosted and water spray thr' vent.Due to coil block and makes airlock to drain pipeline. Resulting to water leak inside.To avoid water leaking service your a/c periodically.

How do PCBs get into natural gas pipelines?


Sources of PCBs in Natural Gas Sector: PCBs are most likely to be found in equipment associated with the processing of the natural gas (Phase 3). For example, old transformers and capacitors, other electrical equipment including voltage regulators, switches, reclosers, bushings, and electromagnets, oil used in motors and hydraulic systems at gas processing plants. In addition, major interstate natural gas pipelines transport natural gas from production areas to local distribution companies (LDCs) that distribute the natural gas to industrial and urban customers. PCBs were used in turbine and air compressors as a hydraulic/lubricant and a plug valve sealant by some large interstate natural gas transmission pipeline companies and by some smaller LDCs. Some interstate pipeline companies may also have had PCB transformers and/or PCB capacitors at large compressor stations and/or maintenance facilities. Similarly, old gathering lines, which move gas from the well/well field to the gas processing plants, might also have compression stations that contain legacy PCBs.

New Goulds 1/2hp water pump w/Square D switch goes on by itself for ten sec. Then off for 5 sec and on for 2sec. 2 minutes later it does it again.Adjuster nuts do nothing to stop it going on again...?


if you are using a pressure tank, that condition is said to be a water lag. Try to drain your pressure tanks using the following steps,
1. remove the drain plug of your pressure tank. (in most cases it is located at the tank bottom just be aware that there might be a pressure still on the water inside your tank so just remove it slowly).
2. remove the pressure gauge using a suitable open wrench.(this is to remove any standing water inside your pressure tank.Same principle as the 2 holes on a can of milk)
3. after all the water has been drained reinstall your drain plug and your pressure gauge.
4 put a water priming on the pump if necessary before starting your motor again.
The condition above is condition 1, if in case you are using a pressure tank.

We will now discuss condition 2 wherein there is no pressure tank installed on your water system.
Your motor can easily run because there is no enough water to use inside you pipeline since there is no pressure tank on your system. In this case, try to install a pressure tank so there will be enough water pressure build up on your tank before using the water on any water faucet.
Also try to check for water leakage along your water pipeline since frequent motor running when not in use of any water faucet means that the water is wasted on some parts of your pipeline.
Good luck and I hope I've enlightened you.

How to deflate and store


DRAINING THE SPA:
1. Unplug power pack from electrical receptacle before draining spa.
2. Put the rubber plug into the outlet in the inner wall of the spa.
3. Open the outlet in the outer wall of the spa. Screw one end of inflation hose into it.
4. Remove the rubber plug from the outlet in the inner wall of the spa.This will allow water to flow out of the spa. 5.When water is completely drained, press BUBBLE and run for 2-3 minutes to drain the water in the air pipeline. 6.When drainage is finished, remove the inflation hose and replace cap on outside of spa. Store rubber plug for future use.

SPA STORAGE
Make sure all water is drained from the spa and control box.This is essential to extend the life of the spa.We recommend the use of a wet/dry vacuum to blow out or suck up water from the spa pipes and pump lines. Remove the filter cartridge. It is recommended you store the spa in its original package in a warm, dry place.
Note: Plastic becomes brittle and susceptible to breakage when exposed to subzero temperatures. Freezing can severely damage the spa. Improper winterization of your spa may void your warranty.

After repairing the pipeline it's inevitable that some debris/stones/cement etc. would find it's way into your machine. Even though there is (or should be) a filter in the water input hose, I'd guess that the water pressure was so high that some debris damaged the electrically operated solenoid valve which controls the water input flow. A mechanical problem then, with possibly some associated electrical fault. If you can get the machine out, I suggest unscrewing the inlet hose and having a look at the valve - they're usually easy to get to. But please DISCONNECT THE ELECTRICAL SUPPLY AND WATER first.

Laguna water garden pump just quit working


Possible causes: Electrical or Mechanical. For Electrical - Check to make sure power is coming to the outlet/cord it is plugged into. If there is a GFCI on the circuit, make sure it is reset.
Mechanical: If something got sucked into the pump it may have caused the impeller to stop and/or the pump to overheat. Some models have an thermal override that will shut the pump off if it overheats. If it is a magnetic drive pump, the impeller can probably be saved, if it is a direct drive, it may have gotten damaged by the jam. Unplug the pump and carefully disassemble the portion where the water goes in to determine if something got sucked into the impeller mechanism.

I have a pump attatched to my shower and now I have to have the water turned up on the highest point to get it hot enough and the pressure is low now any answers


There's a leak in your line causing you to have a lower pressure. Check for leaks;
1. Start at the installed pump. (Suction point, pump
shaft, pump discharge, Pipelines)
2. Check your mixing valve (the valve where the hot
and cold water meet and mixes)
3. Check you main water line connections.
Hope this will help you.

No water from the faucet over a minute when the water pump starts


First and foremost, check if your water pressure is between 20 to 40 psi. If it is, there is no reason why
you could not have water in your faucet. Check your
faucet and your pipelines for closed valve or a clogged
pipeline. However, even if the water pump pressure is
only 10 psi, it should reach your faucet. 10 psi pressure is equivalent to 23.1 feet vertical height.
So, please check it up and get back to us by e-mail.
