Question about Fimco On Demand 12 Volt 1.0 Gpm Pump
Not sure if it should work like this,or not.put my finger over the suction fitting and don't feel any suction,and vise/visa. it's a 60 PSI-2.1GPM pumpshould i get more suction?should feel a little resistants,when pulling away my finger...................
it(the 30gal,boom sprayer set-up)had a lot more power before.
This kind of pump uses an impeller (like a fan). If you test the suction when it is running dry (that is, you are just pumping air) then the amount of suction that an impeller can create is pretty small. However, if the pump is pumping water, and you put your finger over the inlet hose (while it's under water) you should feel a great deal of suction. If the problem is that you have clog on the output side of the pump, you will still feel plenty of suction when pumping water. However, if there is a problem with the impeller (like maybe the blades are broken off or worn down) then you won't feel much suction, even under water. I hope you find this helpful. Al Kupchella
