I have a new 1 hp utiltech pump and a new. Precharged tank with 34 psi in it now. When i prime the pump the pressure goes right to 25 psi and i can hear some water moving . When i open the shut off valve...


The 34 psi of the pressure tank sounds high, but it depends on what the cut-in pressure is set at in the pump pressure switch. Typically the pressure switch is for 20-40 psi or 30-50 psi. To establish what the pre-charge of tank should be , you need to establish what the pressure switch setting are (i.e 20 - 40 psi , etc.) Run the water and watch the pressure gauge and note at what pressure the pump comes on. The pressure tank needs to be pre charged 2 -4 psi below that cut-in pressure. So if the cut-in pressure is say 30 psi, then the tank needs to be pre charged to 28 psi.
To pre charge the pressure tank, turn the pump off. Drain the pressure tank of water to relieve all pressure in the tank. Then check the pressure of the tank at the air valve. Set the pressure to 2 psi below what the cut-in pressure is.
If you adjust the pressure switch, say from 20-40 to 30-50, you will need to go through the procedure of re adjusting the pressure in the tank. I hope this helps....

I have a Utilitech 1hp shallow well jet pump which turns off and on rapidly while using water. I have 25 psi in the air tank. I replaced the pressure switch and still have problems.


Good you got it working. Please post again if you have more trouble on this or another item. Also be sure and check what I mentioned just in case you are operating at the margins, don't want a failure right after you got it going!

CAR STARTS THEN DIES RIGHT OFF HAVE FUEL AND SPARK COMPRESSION IS ABOUT 105


Sound like the fuel pumps not doing it job if the fuel pressure drops off quick. Might also be the regulator but most likely the fuel pump is not pumping enough. They only time the fuel pressure should drop off it when you bring the rpm up and it shouldn't drop off that much maybe 5 psi at most any thing below that i would change the fuel pump.

When turned on ,pump runs for about 8 to 10 sec. stops,then starts back up then repeats as long as water is on


You have a waterlogged pressure tank. To fix this problem, follow these steps:

1. Determine your cut in pressure by looking at the pressure gauge and seeing when the pump turns on.

2. Shut off the electric to the pump and shut off the main water to the house.

3. Drain the water from the pressure tank completely. You can do this by opening the drain at the bottom the the pressure tank.

4. With a air compressor and tire gauge (don't use pressure gauge on the pump) put enough pressure in the tank so that it is two psi less than the cut in pressure. So if your pump turns on at 30 psi, put 28 psi in the tank.

5. Turn the power back on to the pump and let it run till it shuts off.

6. Turn the water back on to the house.

7. This should fix the problem. If it does not, the bladder in the pressure tank is bad and the whole tank needs to be replaced.

This is a general fix without knowing your make and model of pump or pressure tank. This is a universal way of fixing this problem.

I lowered my water pressure on the tank because my water line pressure was 62 psi, and ruptured my water heater. Now my water pump runs almost all the time. How to I set up my tank properly.


pressure switch,look under cover tells you how too set there's low set and high set,look at pressure guage should click on at 30psi shut off at 50psi, adjust to this, just be careful don.t get shocked'power goes to switch for your pump. that would be first thing i'd check.

Ok at the place I am employed they have a 1 Hp submersible pump it pumps about 300 ft into the top of a 120 gal storage tank then the water comes out of the bottom of the tank and goes into our grundfos...


The booster should have been placed after you restrooms with a check valve to prevent back-pressure. then you can adjust both the sub-pump pressure, and the booster pressure accordingly
let me know

Need to adjust Sq D 9013 GHG2


Here are the ranges your your pressure switch.
9013GHG2
Fluids / Pressure controlled Water or Air
Cut-0ut PSIG (bar) 60-200
Cut-In PSIG (bar) 40-170
Weight lbs (kg) 2 lbs (0.91) 2 lbs (0.91)

First set the cut out pressure turning the nut on the spring. To raise the pressure turn nut clockwise depressing the spring. Adjust this so you device stops at 110 psi. Remember when you raise the cutoutpressure the cut in pressure will also raise. When you get the cut out pressure at 110, then your cut in presure will be approx 90 psi (current 60psi +30psi you raised the cut out pressure). Now you can lower the cut in pressure but backing out the differential nut, the smaller size. Until the device cuts out aht the 80psi you want.

Lots of water on basement floor at pressure tank.


sounds like the bladder tank at the well is ruptured this will cause pressure surge, and pump short cycling, and needs to be replaced asap.
