There doesn't seem to be enough pressure. If it is connected with the sprinklers, you might have to separate the two. You can try to increase the pressure but be sure not to break the sprinkler system.

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

Pump starts working once connected to a power source.


Doesn't sound like there is anything wrong with the pump - it sounds like there is something wrong with your timer (or start panel). If the pump is kicking on, there is nothing wrong with it.

Sprinkler out put pressure up and down


you say it sounds like air? air passing through a pump that also has a flow of water typically souds like bb's are passing trough the pump...if this is what you are hearing you may have a bad/cracked suction line or collapsed/dried up well..no way to know for sure without actually being there. otherwise adjust pressure switch to a higher shut off. or look for a bad valve. if a valve is not opening all the way it restricts flow hence it uses less water creating a cycling effect.best if you can hook a pressure gauge to the faucet to check pressure.

I have a 1/2 hp pump which I use to pump lake water to my irrigation system. The pump takes too long to turn on when the spicket is opened and sometimes too long to shut off when the water spicket is...


when using the spicket you use less flow than your irrigation system so a delay in the pump coming on is normal...otherwise if you are having the same problem when the irrigation is running..a pressure switch adjustment may be necessary...please follow the manufacturer instructions for your pressure switch.
