    I tried various solutions and in the end I decided to strip the pump down to invistigate the problem.
    The pump impeller was blocked with small stones and a whole pile of crapp. Cleaned everything out and ran the pump distcheageing through a garden hose and evem more crapp came out. Pump runs quiet and gives a distcharge of 50 psi and is the best pressure since we moved in.

If it stops pumping at 35psi you need a new pressure switch. If it just continues to run but doesn't build more pressure the problem is more likely a plugged point or air getting in due to the water table dropping.

How do I increase the pressure on my Flotec FP711OT-08. It is low 40s psi, can I move it up to 50 psi or high 50 psi? Water pressure throughout the house is low.


There may be a pressure setting on your outfit but My feeling is -- your problem will be low pressure on your water line. Most pressure settings is to keep from having too much pressure on what your running. For instance our city water pressure is 70 lbs but in order to keep my furnace boiler system at 16 lbs I have to install a pressure reducer.

My shallow well pump starts and stops way to often. How much pressure should I have on my pressure tank


I would like to know what size tank you have and how you use it? I have always set my pumps pressure switch at 30 psi. on and 50 psi. off. But you may have different settings. What I do is set pressure in tank at 2 psi below on pressure. In my pump it is set at 28 psi. Hope this helps. Thanks

I have a flotec shallow well pump i can not get it to pump the water it stays at 20 pounds did i hook it up wromg


check your pressure tank. It sounds like it is water logged. This means there is no air pressure in it. If you're cut in pressure is set at 30 pounds you must have 30 psi of air pressure in the pressure tank.
