If you had any blow back when the power went off then the impeller might have spun off the shaft of the motor. If you take it apart the impeller should be almost touching the pump seal plate. It should also be even against it. If it is uneven or has a space behind it you might have to replace it. Also you can check the "O" rings inside the pump to see if your bleeding pressure back to the suction on the pump. I hope this helps.

Low water pressure from wand


The pressure in a watering wand extension to a garden hose is related to the water pressure from the hose itself.

The point of a watering wand is to provide a gentle and widespread flow of water. If you are looking for a powerful stream, then a different type of attachment is required.

Check to make sure that there is no leaking at the faucet, or at any connecting point. Leaks will lower water pressure at the end point.
Check to be sure the wand itself is free of dirts and clogs. If the wand is dirty or blocked, it will affect the pressure.
If there are several hoses hooked together, the water pressure is more likely to be low at the last point, the wand itself.
When the water pressure drops as a result of another use, like a shower, dishwasher, another hose faucet, then the water pressure will drop in the wand.

What causes low blood pressure?


Conditions that can cause low blood pressure:


low_blood_pressure_s1_what_is_blood_pressure-4xwaymabyncayl4wodcgvxkn-4-0.jpg
1. Dehydration. When your body loses more water than it takes in, it can cause weakness, dizziness and fatigue.
2. Endocrine problems. Thyroid conditions such as parathyroid disease, adrenal insufficiency (Addison's disease), low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) and, in some cases, diabetes can trigger low blood pressure.3. Lack of nutrients in your diet. A lack of the vitamins B-12 and folate can keep your body from producing enough red blood cells (anemia), causing low blood pressure.4. Heart problems. Some heart conditions that can lead to low blood pressure include extremely low heart rate (bradycardia), heart valve problems, heart attack and heart failure.
5.
Pregnancy. Because the circulatory system expands rapidly during pregnancy, blood pressure is likely to drop.

Can you put a 3/4 pressure relief valve on a water boiler that has a 1 inch valve on it with the same 50 psi


pressure is one of the variables - other is maximum flow, in case of pressure relief valve (safety valve) if valve was calculated at 50psi and flow of say 10gallon/sec, if you change the diameter, your flow will drop significantly, in case of 1" drop to 3/4" drop will be by nearly 45%! and that is significant drop...

i would suggest do not use reducer but 1" relief valve as required...

if you wan to establish bit more calculations on the subject, go to this site and have play with variations, sele3ct correct calculator and enjoy :

I have a gainsborough ps1600 shower. Water pressure has dropped. Doesn't help when head is removed. Can still adjust temperature but not speed/power


If the water pressure dropped at a sudden moment, it sounds more like an issue with the water pressure leading into your shower, and not a problem with the shower its self. Try seeing if other water sources in the same area of your shower have the same low water pressure issue.

The oil light starts to flash when stopped.


Your oil pressure naturaly drops when the engine is reving slow ( stoped ) , the oil pressure sender unit sends power to the oil light when the pressure drops below a preset value.
EITHER the oil pressure sender unit is faulty ( a common occurance ) , or you actualy have unusualy low oil pressure which could be caused by several different problems.
I would suggest replacing the sensor , it it still happens , you have a more serious problem.

I have a hotpoint hot water heater it's about 6 years old. When I turn the hot water on it runs very slowly the water pressure is very low and it's like this throughout the house how do I fix this problem...


You have clog in the water line.
Since all hot water pipes are involved, clog is probably near water heater.

Buy pressure gauge at hardware store that threads onto hose connection.
Brady BTG 100 at Amazon
Picture of gauge

Check outdoor pressure for baseline pressure in your home.
Turn off electricity to hot water heater for an hour or two so there is not scalding water.
Open drain valve on water heater to see if water heater is clogged with sediment.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Water-heater-will-not-drain.html

Put pressure gauge on drain valve and compare with outside pressure.
Open hot water spigot on bathtub and see if tank pressure drops ... if tank pressure drops significantly with bathtub spigot on, then clog is on incoming cold water before tank, and could be on outgoing hot water pipes too.
If tank pressure stays about the same, then clog is on outgoing hot water pipes.

Clog can be sediment caught in cold water shut off valve located above tank. Open and close valve and test pressure again. Take apart incoming cold water pipes above tank and check for sediment. Replace valve. Look at condition of cold water nipple on top of tank.

Sediment caught at hot water elbow near tank.
Sediment can fill up old pipes. Take apart hot water pipes above water heater and see condition.
Look at condition of hot water nipple on top of tank.
You may have to take apart pipes up to first or second elbow.

Pipes can decay at joint where copper pipe connects to galvanized pipe. Check for copper to galvanized connections on cold or hot pipes and replace section of galvanized pipe. Copper pipe will probably be good, the galvanized pipe will deteriorate. Replace copper-to-galvanized joint with 3/4" non-conducting union from hardware store

DOES THE 750 LI 2006 HAVE TIRE PRESSURE MONITORS


It either has Tire Pressure Monitor (TPM), or Flat Tire Monitor (FTM)

TPM:Checks the tire inflation pressure in the four mounted tires. The system indicates if the tire inflation pressure has dropped considerably in one or several tires.

FTM:Keeps track of the inflation pressures in the four mounted tires as you drive. The system triggers an alert whenever the inflation pressure drops significantly in relation to the pressure in another tire.

Can low steering fluid cause mechanical problems


Problems associated with low power steering fluid…

Hard Vehicle Steering
A low power steering fluid level can often times cause a vehicle's steering to become hard and labored. Adequate amounts of power steering fluid are necessary to enable a vehicle's power steering system to function and operate at optimum levels. A lack of power steering fluid in a vehicle's power steering system reduces the amount of hydraulic fluid pressure necessary to efficiently operating the various parts of the entire power steering system. Power steering fluid supplies the fluid force needed to operate the power steering gears and to enable power steering gearbox operation. Low power steering fluid levels reduce this hydraulic pressure, which commonly results in hard vehicle steering.

Pump Noise
It is very common for a low power steering fluid level to cause significant power steering pump noise. An adequate amount of power steering fluid is required to ensure the proper function and longevity of a power steering pump unit, which is a belt-driven pump responsible for housing and circulating power steering pump fluid. A low level of power steering fluid results in increased power steering pump friction, heat, and wear, all of which can significantly reduce the operational life of the power steering pump while at the same time cause excessive power steering pump noise.

Fluid Boiling
Many times a low power steering fluid level can result in excessive heating of power steering fluid, a condition that can seriously degrade the fluid and cause it to boil. A low power steering fluid level results in less available fluid to both lubricate and cool a power steering pump unit. A lack of power steering pump lubrication and cooling leads to excessive heat being generated within the power steering pump unit itself, a condition that translates into the available level of power steering fluid becoming super-heated and degraded. When this happens it is common for the power steering fluid to boil and lose all of its lubricating and heat-reducing capabilities.

Gearbox Wear
The power steering gearbox is a set of gears within a vehicle's power steering system designed to facilitate movement of a vehicle's front wheels. The power steering gearbox is connected to the power steering pump by hydraulic fluid lines that deliver a constant supply of power steering fluid to the power steering gearbox. A low power steering fluid level, especially a chronic and severe low power steering fluid level, can lead to increased friction and wear within the power steering gearbox assembly, a condition that can significantly shorten the operational life of the power steering gearbox and negatively affect its operation
