If you are certain the gauge is accurate (does it return to zero when the system is off?) and the system has worked well in years past it means your sand bed has deteriorated to the point that backwashing no longer removes enough debris and/or the sand is worn enough as to become to compacted in the tank. Either way it means it is time to remove at least the top several inches of sand and replace it with one 50# bag or better yet, remove all the old sand and refill the tank with new sand in the amount indicated on the label under media...it will be in multiples of 50#.

How do I increase the pressure on my Flotec FP711OT-08. It is low 40s psi, can I move it up to 50 psi or high 50 psi? Water pressure throughout the house is low.


There may be a pressure setting on your outfit but My feeling is -- your problem will be low pressure on your water line. Most pressure settings is to keep from having too much pressure on what your running. For instance our city water pressure is 70 lbs but in order to keep my furnace boiler system at 16 lbs I have to install a pressure reducer.

Oil pressure is really low and valve started ticking after oil change, WHY??


the new oil pressure is affected by the pump speed especially an oil pump that has done a lot of work. Low water pressure is usually a sign of engine wear particularly around the mains and bigends.
As the motor ages and all the parts become worn more and more is lost into the crankcase. As you rev the motor the oil pressure increases and will maintain its pressure at around six or eight PSI.
When you change the oil in the hydraulic tappets drain the oil away and so when you restart the engine after you have changed the oil the worn oil pump take some time to get new oil up and around the hydraulic tappets.
This is a common problem with well used engines, it does not mean that they are not usable but it does mean they are starting to show their age.

Dewalt air compressor keeps running until pressure output is 200 PSI, the same pressure in the tank. Why doesn't it quit running at 120 PSI the designated pressure on the compressor?


The regulator switch/unloader is bad or out of adjustment. Perhaps though the gauge is faulty. 200 psi in a 120psi compressor is dangerous, don't run it until it is fixed!

I SEEM TO BE HAVING A PROBLEM WITH MY TANK PRESSURE. MY TANK PRESSURE SITS AT ABOUT 80 PSI AND THE REGULATED PRESSURE SITS AT ABOUT 70 PSI,IT DOES NOT GO ANY HIGHER, IS THIS NORMAL AND IF NOT WHAT DO I...


The C6110 is an oil free air compressor and has a piston ring that needs to be replace as part of regular service.
When the piston ring is worn out it will just keep pumping but it will not go over 80 psi or so because to much ir is passing by the ring.

Here is a parts diagram:
http://shoppingcart.msservicecompany.com/msservice_net/product_files/C6110/C6110_PL.pdf

It sounds like the piston ring DAC-308 needs to be replaced. You can also replace the complete top end.
This is a pretty easy repair and can be done in less that 1 hour.

Starts fine, but then bogs out when accelerating, practicaly have to give it no gas and creep up to speed.Doesn't want to go up hills. Just replaced the cpi, fuel filter and fuel pump 3 months ago. Also...


Check the fuel pressure regulator and the EGR valve, I would check the fuel pressure regulator first and go from there. Good luck and keep me posted. Not sure what the pressure should be but thinking it's 62 to 65 PSI upon start up and should drop 5 PSI when engine running, check the vacuum line to the regulator.
