I'm assuming this is not for a bath tub actually. You're referring to your well pump. The problems are different if it is a submersible deep well or an above ground shallow well pump. In either case if you have a suction leak, the pump will short cycle. Or if you have a plumbing leak the pressure will slowly drop off until the pump cycles, and re-pressurizes the system. Or if you mean when you begin to use water the pump comes on quickly, check your expansion (bladder) tank. If it has a leak in the bladder it won't do it's job. Turn water off. Check air pressure on air fill valve on tank. Your tank should indicate what pressure (usually about 20psi, tank empty of water.

My submersible pump holds at 40lbs of pressure but I loose water to the house, replaced pressure switch. What could be wrong?


Just a thought. Is your pipe to the house leaking? even if its a little bit will take pressure down. What about your taps or yes your toilet. It don't take much of a leak for pressure to drop. Make sure your toilet completely shuts off or flapper does not leak. I have seen that happen.

Reduced pressure. Pump runs when handle released. Water leaking from the bottom of the machine when I have the wand handle open. When I release the handle, the leak stops. Thanks.


You should know if the pump has not been frozen by winterperiod example a tear in the pump housing , second if its not so there will be a for shure a cuff kit for it but the most important question is how old is the pressure washer and is it in your Country maybe cheaper then in Europe in most cases then go ahead but K?rcher is in most cases the budget commercial machines to expensive to replace spare parts because the price instead of new pressure washers with more technical futures by it and again garantee on it.
But the expensive models are 1600 rpm machines and have brass pumphouses they are made for every day use. and will not suprice spontaneous the user with leakage . then its comes slowly , but if anybody is using a pressure washer 1 or 2 times in a year is it a surprise if its working , ALTO NILFISK is a brand 90% i can tell you it will not function anymore by lime in the bypass of the autostop. all this aside you should take care on your pumphouse
pump and gaskets and cuffs hose connector o rings and important casting seams of the pump housing and hose connection. inspect it thoroughly but succes.
