I had a problem with mine. It also was drawing in water but it turned out it wasn't enough. The flap on the skimmer wasn't opening all the way. It get stuck closed sometimes. I probably need to sand on the hinges a little.

Operation pressure


suction pressure should be about -4 inches of mercury and discharge pressure should be around a hundred and fifty. do not put the gauges on to the suction line while is running or you will draw air into the sealed system. attach a gauge is only when the unit is off and equalized

My new Optiflow pump surges..............it seems to not be pulling the water thru the sand filter and discharging as it should. Sand filter gauge fluxuates between 0 and 3 lbs of pressure.


it sounds like you may have a suction side leak on the pump. check the lid o-ring and the suction side fittings to see if there may be a possibility of air being sucked into the pump and causing it to act like it's picking up prime and then losing it.

I have a model 109163. I'm trying to pump water from a creek. The suction hose is about 6 ft below the pump and 12ft long. The output hose is running about 300 ft at a gradual incline to about 10 ft. My...


In order for the pump to **** up water, it must discharge air. Try this. Install a hose bibb (faucet) in the discharge line over top of the pump. Fill the pump housing with water, turn on the pump and open the hose bibb/faucet until full water flow is established. Almost all air should be out of the pump and suction line at this time. Now when you close the hose bibb/faucet, the pump will have plenty of pressure to fill the long discharge line.
Suction line should be 2-1/2 inch if that is the pump suction size.
What size is your discharge line?
There should be a check valve/foot valve on the end of the line in the creek to keep water in the pump once it is primed.

Hi i have a k3.65 jubilee model when switched on it constantly surges and the water pressure is not as good as it was its only 10 months old.any advice


Have the hose pipe running into a bucket/container and use another short length of hose from the pressure washer to **** the water out of the bucket, that way if the bucket is full when you start, any drops in mains pressure wont affect the pressure washer as their should always be a reservoir or water to keep constant pressure.( you may need to prime the suction hose first, just hold the 2 hoses together in the bucket of water with pressure washer on)
Any questions ask

It will not matter where you put the hot and neautral as long as one goes on line 1 and the other on line 2. Just be sure to reset the voltage indicator to read the 115V like before and your all set.

I got 1 year old flotec 3/4 hp pump and it take


I have had the same problem there are a few things that can cause it to take longer to shut off, if you are running a sand point well that's usually a sign that the sand point is clogging up,if you have a sistern or a dug well check the screen on the end of the suction pipe,another possible cause is the water level has dropped low enough the pump is having to work harder to pull the water up, you should also check your pressure tank and the points for the pump if the points are sticking the pump will keep running till it builds enough pressure to trip them.Check for leaks in the suction line, if it is sucking air that would cause it to run longer to.I hope these suggestions will help fix the problem. Have a great weekend

I'm need assistance wiring my hayward 2 speed super pump up with my pool timer. the pump is working now but it's running real hot and making alot of noise.


You may have a faulty bearing ... causing the noise. The pump is actually water cooled. Do you have 2 inch line for your 2 HP pump? Small pipe makes the pump work harder. If your lines are smaller, you may want to consider a smaller pump.

the motors will run pretty warm.

Run your pump on high for best results.

If you are using a timer ... you will need a double pole switch to turn it off if it is setup for 220 VAC (which it should be, for most econimical operation)
