Question about Flotec Plumbing
The switch is not the problem. The problem is the pressure tank. I am assuming you have a captive air tank with a bladder in it. The air pressure in the tank needs to be 2 lbs below the turn on pressure. Heres how to acheive that. Look at the pressure gauge on the pump and determine what pressure the pump is turning on. Next, turn the pump off and drain the pressure tank, then shut off the water to the whole house. If the pressure tank does not drain all the way, then you have a problem with the bladder in the tank. Once the tank is drained put the required amount of air in the tank. (if the pump turned on at 30 psi, then put 28 psi in the tank and if the pump turned on at 20, then put 18 psi in the tank) Check it with a tire gauge to confirm. Now turn the pump back on and see how it does. If done properly, your problem should be fixed. If it is a bad bladder, you will have to buy a new pressure tank.
