What are you pumping? I am guessing you have silt or mud coming out of the faucets in the house. When the pump guys drill or drive a well, they have a monster pump on the truck, 3 or 4 times as powerful as the one you have, they pump a big hole and blow it back down and pump it out again creating a void or a cavity that will stay that way for as while. You can run your pump all day to try and get it to clear up, But it might not do anything. It won't hurt it though. You can get a sand filter on the line to get some of the heavy stuff out, then get a fine filter under the sink for the smaller stuff that sneaks through. Check it out.

    I don't think you understood my problem. I am using a Bestway Flowclear Pool pump and I am trying to filter/pump the dirt in my pool. Since I no longer have the instruction manual, I just want to know how long to expect it to take to pump my pool out.
    Thank you.

    No, I had no idea what you were pumping, I was just guessing. Your pool filter huh? It could take days, weeks to get that thing clear, that is why they run them so much. How dirty is it? Does it need to be shocked? Did you have the chlorine tested? Is the water green or just dirty? You can get the big stuff with a scoop if you have to, but as long as the pump is going and the filter is on there and clean, it should be cleaning the water. But it will take a few days. Hope this helps.

I cant get my a985 F250 to stay running, bought a new Carb, bought a new ignition control module, new coil

Check the wiring from the ignition switch . When you got fuel as the engine was cranking then the power for the pump is on the start side of the ignition switch and not in conjunction with the run side of the switch.. IT could be a fuse in the run circuit or a faulty pump relay.

My 91 cammry suddenly wont start I have spark for sure! I suspect a fuel problem where do I start. & whats the procedure Chuck

Easiest thing to do is make sure you right. On the air cleaner hose theres a smaller hose connected to it coming from the valve cover remove it and spray a little carb cleaner or gas into the big hose with the engine cranking. If it fires up running on the carb cleaner you know its a fuel problem if not the timing belt could have broke. To check that, on some models you can remove the oil filler cap and see the cam or rocker arm. Crank the engine and if the parts don't move the belt is brocken. Thats where to start

Pump problems?

Their can be a number of things.. Is the pump priming. Hopefully it did prime. what usually happens after running for awhile, with no cool water coming in. The water inside the pump basket starts to heat up, then the tubing turns to brownish on the input side of pump and exhaust side. (you could have air leaking in throught the input side, which could result in the pump never priming) Or if it is priming and no pressure (can mean your empellar is clogged up)

I am a mechanic in a shop in my area and replacing a water pump on your car would not cost that much money. I checked the prices of a water pump and thermostat and I would not charge more than $250 for the job. I pays 1.5 hours labor to replace the pump. I hope this is helpful.
