Below the intake of the pump there should be a plug that allows access to the venturi. Simply remove the plug and take a long thin screw driver and clear the plugged injector. If the plug is not there then you have to disassemble the pump end.

What is a Venturi co-current flow system?


A venturi co-current flow system can be used to introduce the bubbles into the water stream. The tank water is pumped through the venturi then enters the skimmer body. This method of skimming is much more popular nowadays.

What is the use of Venturi?


A venturi is used in many skimmers to draw air into the water flow. As water is pumped through the venturi, air is drawn into the passing water through a small inlet tube. There are many version of venturi in the outlet tube because many brands use modified version of their own.

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.

My Simer 2300-03 has been great except that it overheats after awhile. Too little water??


Yes. I recently used a similar pump (Flotech 1/6 hp) running for about 24 hours - but it came with this warning "don't use continuously unless submerged in at least 4 inches of water". This is because it will easily overheat, as yours has been doing. Mine worked for pumping water out of my basement (not the speediest little pump), but only because there is a sump hole in the floor where the pump could remain submerged.

I have a Flotech FPOS1790PCA Pool pump that will run for 15 seconds and then shut off...how do I get it to stay running?


I have the same model and found that it frequently shuts off when it gets too much pine needles clogging the strainer.
I have unscrew the bottom "skirt" almost once a month and clean it out.

Good luck!

Flotech utility pump clogged. took top off and


unless you are a electriciani would highly recommend you do not touch this... the green wire is a earth and the two other wires are your active and neutral if you wire this back to front it will spin the oppisite way and could cause internal damage to the pump could spin impeller off or worse...

Can a shallow water pump be converted to a deep water pump?


No, if it is a true shallow well jet pump it may not be converted to a deep-well. A deep well may be converted to shallow well.
I hope this may have helped,
