Question about Vacuums

Open Question

I have a Simoniz s1900 pressure washer that lost water pressure while I was using it. I checked all the hose connections for air and water leaks and found none. I took the casing off to check for cracks in the pump housing and also found none. I can see there is a switch of some kind that is supposed to activate when you turn the power on and the pump becomes pressurized which shuts the motor off until you pull the trigger on the wand.However, the pump does not pressurize and just keeps running when I turn the power on. There is lots of water from the supply hose and I used my son's pressure washer on the same system and had no problems. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

One thing to check is that the hose connected to it isn't collapsing and cutting off the water supply. Make sure plenty of water pressure and volume at hose as well.

Can I blow out a basement floor drain that has silt in it with my Rigid Vac? The drain is 4" wide.I envision connecting the end of the hose to one of those back water valves,and screwing the back wate


This could work providing you do not have a vent pipe the air can go up. Also you could just pressurize the sewer if the blockage does not move. Then when you remove the hose you could have a black water shower.

My Simoniz S1900 pressure washer "pulses" on and off when I turn it on and pull the trigger. I have purged the pump of air as pre the company's video but nothing helps.

I could be that the rubber washer that is on the piece that the hose screws on to is dried out. Try replacing it. Any outdoor products store would have it.

Vaccum seems to cut off after short use like its hot,,once it cools off i can use again


Check filter. Clean if needed. The filter should be cleaned when it appears dirty. Simply remove filter, rinse thoroughly under warm running water until clear, then allow to thoroughly air dry. The drying is very important. Additional filter cleaning instructions are on page 13 of the manual.
Check the pleated exhaust (HEPA) filter. If dirty, cleaning is necessary. Instructions for removal and cleaning are on page 14 of the manual.
Check hose, wands, and power nozzle for blockages.
Hose: detach at both ends. The ends of the hose are the most common areas for a blockage. Check visually and clear as much as possible if present. If not visible, hold one end up and drop a coin in. Lift the end until the coin falls through. If it doesn't, there's a clog.
The easiest way to unclog a hose is to use an air pressure hose, or a canister vacuum that has an exhaust blower that the hose can be held too. If enough pressure, it will blow the dirt out. Make sure to put a plastic bag around the loose end to hold the dirt.
Visually check wands and power nozzle. The bend in the power nozzle connection is another common place for clogs. A wooden spoon handle, or similar blunt object, can be used to push the debris back toward the brush to clear a blockage here.

If none of these are the problem, contact a vacuum service center, preferably Hoover, for assistance.

Have you checked the hose for clogs or leaks. Clogged and leaky hoses are an area of concern with any central vac. Unless you hose has a hose sock, then wear and tear from constant rubbing on floors and other surfaces will result in holes and cracks. Pulling the hose can also result in leaks where the hose attaches to the handle and intake connector.
Mix some dish soap with water.
Use shop vac to blow air through hose, with other end capped or "clogged".
Apply soap solution to each end of hose.
If bubbles form, this indicates leakage. Hose will need to be replaced.

It is leaking water out the bottom when off and won't **** it back up through bottom chamber when on


I personally would dismantle the covers as much as possible. Look for any leaky hoses or tubes. Look for cracks in the canister that could leak. Any air leaks can cause lack of vacuum pressure and release the liquid that is already there. Or if the pump is faulty or leaking, it won't work to **** or to hold pressure.

Water leaks where the hose connects to the trigger handle.


Be sure to get a good washer on with the connection. They're easy to buy at any hardware store. You can also put white plumbing tape around the threads before screwing them in to make it really fit.

Water leaking out bottom with hose attached


The water hose plugs into the solution valve-pressure on the side of the noozle(bottom). There may be a water line that has come loose there, you will have to take the top off to get to it.

Pump prime lost


After further examination of the pump I re-installed it in the machine and removed the inlet hose from the mixer valve body and placed the end in a shallow pan of water. I turned the machine on and the pimp picked up the water from the pan and pumped without failure for several minutes as I had the pump output refilling the same pan.
If I take the end of the inlet hose out of the pan for only a couple of seconds, the pump loses prime and will not recover until I remove the vacuum hose from the pump. Upon replacing the vacuum hose the pump primes and begins working.
At that point I suspected an air leak at the base of the water tank or somewhere in the mixer valve assembly. I then took the hose off of the tank fitting in the base and placed the end of the hose in the pan of water. Again, the pump performed without any problem. Therefore, I assume I have an air leak at the base of the tank where the tank connects to the machine.
I will explore this further and provide you with additional info as I make progress
