Most switches work both 110 or 220 volts, this pressure switch should have a diagran on the inside of the cover, if you are still not sure go back to the place that you bought it at, and ask, home depot, lowes, should know and tell you how to wire it so it will work.

Directions to adjust water well pressure switch


Loosen the nut on the top of the housing. It's a "captive nut", so it'll stay with the housing when you lift the housing off.

There'll be a large spring under that nut, with another nut on a threaded stud that runs through the center of the spring. Turn that nut clockwise to increase pressure, or counterclockwise to decrease pressure. If you turn it counterclockwise, you have to run some water to bleed the pressure out of the plumbing before you can tell any difference - it won't instantly drop the pressure in your plumbing. It only tells the pump when to run & when to turn off.

Why cant i get water in my house when my pressure switch gauge showws 80 lbs built up


It sounds like there's a shutoff valve beyond the pressure switch & tank, and that shutoff valve is closed. Or... there may be a sediment filter on the house side of the switch & tank, and the filter is badly plugged. Or... the gauge may be wrong. That happens, too.

Connect pressure switch


Low Water Pressure This video will give step-by step instructions on how to adjust a water pressure switch. Note the procedure for pre-charging the pressure tank. The cut-in and cut-out adjustments on the switch are made with the electric on, so be mindful of working around live wires and contacts on the swithc.

How does pressure tanks work


Pressure tanks do just that in a water system. They create pressure for water to flow when the water pump is on the off cycle. A manifold is plumbed into the tank from the main line coming from the well. The main water line continues to the house plumbing from the manifold. So it's line from pump to manifold - to tank, and from manifold to main into house. The manifold also has tappings for the pressure gauge and the pressure switch. The pressure tank creates water pressure. The water does not flow through the tank. Pressure tanks also have to be 'tuned' or adjusted to the low end pressure set by the pressure switch. Actually the tank pressure needs to be set 2psi below the low end pressure. Most residential water systems are set to operate between 20 -40, or 30-50 psi, which is set by the pressure switch, which in turn , turns the water pump on and off. So if a system operates between 20 and 40 psi, the pre-charged pressure of the tank should be 18 psi. Pre-charged means the tank is drained of water with the water pump OFF. The tank pressure is then checked adjusted by way of the air valve on top of the tank ( A tire gauge works). Pressure tank mainfolds are a common plumbing part.

How do you replace a pump pressure switch and or tank?


i would check the bladder first the switch only turns it on and off the bladder helps with the volume of pressure there is a air fitting on the top if the bladder is bad push the valve with a screw driver tip water would spray out with a tire pressure gauge set the pressure a couple pounds highter than the turn on pressure thats free to try you can't bring back parts

I find it interesting that you never had this problem. Did something change, specifically on the backwash of the iron filter? Is is possible that there is lower restriction to backwash causing the lower pump pressure? Could you throttle the backwash flow to allow pressure to be maintained and still get adequate backwashing?
It seems a lot of water must be flowing so that when you use some water the pressure drops to more than 10 psi below cut-in, that means typically 30 psi shutoff point.
Can you lower cut-in pressure, say 5 psi, lower?

The nut on the larger spring in the pump pressure switch: Usually the larger nut in the pump pressure control switch adjusts the pump cut-on ("cut-in") AND pump cut-off pressures simultaneously. This is the left-hand spring (and nut) in our photo. That means that whatever the gap is between the cut-on pressure and the cut-off pressure, that gap is maintained, but the entire operating range of the pump is raised or lowered. Turning the large nut clockwise RAISES BOTH the cut-on and cut-off pressures. So turning the large nut clockwise shifts the whole operating pressure range of the pump UP to HIGHER pressures.
Conversely, turning the large nut counter-clockwise will lower the whole pump operating range. This is the simplest adjustment to make.
Photo (left) courtesy of a reader.
The nut atop the smaller spring in the pump pressure switch: this nut is used to narrow or widen the gap between the pump cut-on and pump cut-off pressures. This is the right-hand spring (and nut) in our photo).

Turning the small nut clockwise (tighter) will RAISE the CUT-OFF pressure, and vice versa, loosening or turning the nut counter-clockwise will lower the cut-off pressure. Watch out! If you loosen this nut too much you can set the cut-off pressure below the cut-on pressure and the pump will turn on and run forever (or until it burns up.)
Which nut to turn in the pump pressure switch control, and which direction to turn it, are usually visible on a label inside the pressure switch cover. Above we show photos of a common Square D water pump pressure control switch (Schneider Electric) and the label with pump control adjustment details. [Click to enlarge].
Here are Example Pump Pressure Switch Adjustment Instructions from Square -D Understanding how pump pressure control switches work and which way to turn which of the two nuts in the control can be confusing.
On a Square-D Pumptrol® 9013FSF-2 pump pressure switch, for example, Square D tells us that we
  • Turn the Range Nut #1 (the larger spring and nut) clockwise (to the right or "down") to raise [both] cut-on and cut-off pressures. This is "tightening the nut down" against the spring. ("Rightie-tightie, leftie-loosie" as Mara Gieseke says to her kids). Thanks to reader Rise for this clarification.

    In other words, adjusting the pressure on this spring shifts the whole operating range of the switch up or down, but keeps the difference between cut-in and cut-out the same, whatever it happens to be (typically it's about 20 psi from the factory.)

    If you want the pump to turn ON (cut-in) sooner
    , that is, at a higher water pressure, turn the nut clockwise or "tighter".

    If you want the water pump to turn ON (cut-in) later, that is, at a lower water pressure, turn the nut counterclockwise or "looser".

  • Turn the Differential Nut #2 (the smaller spring and nut) clockwise to raise the cut-out pressure.

    If you want the water pump to turn OFF (cut out or cut-off) at a higher water pressure, turn this nut clockwise or "tighter".

    If you want the water pump to turn OFF (cut out or cut-off) at a lower water pressure, turn this nut counter clockwise or "looser"

    Here is why the small nut is called the "Differential"

Hi,
The problem is that the pressure switch is not adjusted properly...
You need to turn the taller screw down so that the pressure switch kicks the pump on sooner...

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.

My pump stays on after having a shower sometimes...


The pump will start and stop with a pressure switch that is mounted in the discharge of the pump. Sometimes pressure switches get sticky and won't shut off when they are supposed to. You can buy them at most hardware stores, the most common is a Square D, and you'll need to both connect it to the pipe and also to the power line and the pump motor.
