Something inside is loose, like wiring or a part is lose in there and is shorting out on something or moving just enough for a contact point not to make contact, then when you smack it with your wrench you cause it move back to where it should be and it makes contact which allows it to run again. Take it to a small engine shop and have them repair it and let them know you have an idea what is wrong so they will charge you properly and not burn you, IF THEY HAPPEN TO BE THE KIND OF SHOP THAT WOULD DO THAT.

What causes my booster pump to increase pressure even after I shut power and or water supply off?

something wrong here. your incoming pressure is 4 psi ( tank pressure to the pump and you use a pump to boost pressure to a maximum of 65 psi at which point the pump is shut off ( all taps close off)
yet with no pumps running the pressure goes up to 100 psi
Find where you are getting pressure in that is making the pump leak
if you have 100 psi to the pump when it is turned off, then it would not be turning on ( power on) as the shut off pressure is set at 65 psi and the line pressure is 100 psi

I have a 1 hp power flo matrix. When I run the pump without water on a bench it runs fine. I put the hoses back on and run it, it starts slow never kicks into full power and trips the braker. Any thoughts?

It sounds like something is causing the motor to not only have limited torque but also draw more than normal current. It sounds like a problem in the motor but exploratory surgery would indicate the cause for sure.

If you are not wanting to turn wrenches yourself then my best suggestion is to bring it to Leslies Pool Supplies and they often can put it right for the price of the parts while you watch.

I hope this helps.

How many gallons per minute does this pump move?

From what I can see, under ideal conditions, about 90 gallons per minute for a 1.5 HP, 1.5 inch pump of another manufacturer.

How to remove pump from motor

remove the bolts holding the suction side cover on. remove the cover on the end of the motor and use a tool (armature holding tool) to immobilize the motor shaft. remove the center screw (if applicable) in the middle of the impeller by turning clockwise. Spin the impeller off by turning counter-clockwise. If it will not come off, you may need an impeller wrench. Once the impeller is off you can remove the four through bolts and the motor should come right off.

The impeller will not unscrew from the shaft. 20 year old power flo I have stretched a rubber strap wrench trying to turn it.

Try soaking it overnight with blaster, the stuff works great, Take off the back cover, you should have two flats on the shaft to fit a wrench, If it won't go left, try right and see what happens.

Water works spa pump- need to remove wet end... through bolts are out, motor shaft is free, impeller is frozen in housing... impeller has no visible nut/bolt holding it on, is this press fit or other? how...

Most of these are reverse threaded. There should be a place on the shaft that is flat on 2 sides a 1/2" or 9/16" wrench will fit into the slots. If not look at the back for a place to use a hex key. Hold the wrench/ hex key stationary with the Impeller facing you turn clockwise.
I know this sounds backwards but it should work.
Hope this helps

How do I get to the pump seal on my hi-flo water

The impeller threads off the shaft and most likely is right hand threads. You will have to lock or hold the motor to remove the impeller. If you remove the motor cover you might find that the motor has a slot in the end of the shaft or two flat sides so you can hold it with a flat wrench.

The impeller is probably plastic and could break. Get a strap wrench to remove the impellor.

SEal replacement on Flo-Master 1 hp 2 speed pump? Tough to remove. Any tips on removal?

Pump seal is in two pieces. The piece with the spring should be easy to remove. To remove the piece that is inside the motor side of the pump housing, place the housing with the side that should be facing the motor downdwards on a flat surface. The hole in the housing is larger than the seal, so use a screwdriver and, placing first on one side of the seal and then the other, strive the handle of the screwdriver sharply and the seal should pop out the bottom. The seal is rubber, with a ceramic insert, so if you don't tap the screwdriver too sharply the insert won't be damaged. In any case, it's a good idea to replace the entire seal if you have had to open the pump and remove the impeller

Pressure setting of series 90 pumps

Yes 90 series pumps will run pretty close to 6000 psi. there are cross port reliefs built into the endcap of the pump and usually a POR valve as well. so the POR should be set at 3000, the cross ports in the pump should be set higher than this. There may also be a "transmission block" which is a seperate block with hot oil shuttle and cross port reliefs. Make sure these reliefs are also set higher than the POR valve in the pump. There may also be cross port reliefs in the motor. These too must be set higher than the POR valve in the pump. If you system overheats after increasing the pressure setting of the POR valve, you are probably loosing oil across one of the cross port relief valves.
Please visit for more information. I** If am electric motor is being used to drive this pump, be sure you have sufficient horse power for this increased load. **
