Why does my pump loose pressure


Sounds like your not using enough water, and or your pipes to sprinkler is to to small, causing pump to build up to cut off head. I cant lay my hands on a performance chart for your pump, but 60 psi cut off and 20 on sounds about right. Try running another tap when your sprinkler is running, and see if this keeps your pump running

When i turn the system to run hear a click in the pump relay but system does not come on


Turning the dial to run should not send any electrical current anywhere it simply is set to come on at the scheduled time. If your turning the dial to run and attempting to start the valve manually and a click the pump or valve solenoid clicks, the flow control may be closed, the water is off or the valve has failed to open. Try opening the bleeder screw to see if the valve opens this way. If so, try replacing the solenoid if no, replace the valve.

How do I adjust sprinkler head properly


Check to see if the small slotted screw is flush with the top of the spray nozzle. If so, it has been manually lowered. Turn the screw counter clockwise until it stops, be sure to hold the nozzle to keep it from turning. If no, unscrew the nozzle and remove debris from around filter. Tell the gardener to just mow the grass and not to touch the sprinkler system he is usually why it was turned down 9 times out of 10. If he says "No touch, No touch. He is lying fire him.

The breaker is trips when the system is turned on. We tried another circuit and it also popped the breaker. It is a 2 horse lake lawn sprinkler unit. It has been working beautifully for its second season...


Good Question.

The Lawn Sprinkler does not use that much power.

So you had your Lawn Sprinkler in storage, and you got it out for this season ?

If yes I can only think if any damp has got in, on the connection, that Run to your main power supply. Check it out.

Good Luck

I have an aquamate pump and when i connect it to a continuous sprinkler it stops and starts contiuously


The pump is putting out too much water for the sprinkler.
You can raise the pump shut off pressure at the switch until it is higher than the pressure that the pump runs at with the sprinkler operating. You should have a surge tank connected to the system to give the pump time to balance with the sprinkler.
You can use more water with the sprinkler. This could mean adding another sprinkler or increasing the nozzle size of the existing sprinkler.

I have 1 and 1/2 horsepower sprinkler pump that wont prime. As soon as the end piece fills, it will empty if I open the end to the sprinkler.


I don't know what is your system set up. However, the system set up should be the following;
1. Your 1-1/2HP sprinkler pump must be installed at
a fix location nearest the water source. (Complete
with power and plumbing lines.)
2. At the end of the suction line is a vertical check
valve with strainer.
3. The suction pipeline must be connected to the
suction port of the pump.
4. At the discharge port, a flow control valve tee must
be installed. The flow control valve tee top is
covered with a plug, which serves as the priming
port when opened.
5. After the flow control valve, connect a short nipple
so that you can put a gate valve to stop the water
flow or allow the water to flow. You may connect
a pressure tank at this point or you may connect
the pressure hose going to the sprinkler.
6. To prime the pump, open the plug at the flow
control top. Fill it full with water, replace the
priming port plug.
7. Turn the flow control valve to full closed position.
8. From full close position, switch the power on.
9. The pump now run on and off due the pressure
switch setting. Slowly open the flow control valve
such that the water pressure remains steady.
10. Take note of the pressure.
11. Shut the power off, and connect the sprinkler
pump hose.
12. Put the power back on, and allow the pump to
run with the sprinkler.

Under this set up, you can run the sprinklers when your pump is running. Hope this will solve problem.

Irrigation system problem


How big is your pump? How much HP rating? It could be a case of blocked water line. Just check your pipe lines and the gate valve for blockage. Just your e-mail
for your comments.
