Take it loose from the faucet and flip the lever down on the filter in the on position. Take the cap off and remove the filter. Blow hard through it. You should hear a whirling noise of a gear, like a windmill. If not, I use a water dental pic to pulsate into it and clean it out. This is what makes the light work and when flow goes down, the light changes color. It's all mechanical. No battery. Just free up the gear so it turns freely to work the light. If standing in front of a mirror, you can actually see the light come on. PUR doesn't tell you this because they want you to purchase another one.

Hello Joyce Andrews,

It would be really helpful had you disclosed what type of FILL-VALVE or commode you are questioning...

Without that VITAL information I can speculate
that you have a KOHLER type valve that is VERY EASILY
knocked off its VERTICAL orientation

Sadly it pivots rather easily to the front or back of the tank...
INHIBITING the FREE MOTION of its FLOAT.

Open the tank and VISUALLY look to see the float shaft is free to move easily up & down.

If the valve body is not PERFECTLY PLUM
(perpendicular to the floor) the valve will behave poorly.

Gently adjust the vertical positioning.

pressure in centrifugal pumps depends on the number of impellers in the pump housing, the clearance of the impellers to the housing and the power of the motor to drive the impeller/s
volume flow is also important as a pump without a high output will not produce pressure
check the jet size at the foot valve that is used to help lift water to the pump
It is a jet pump and will have a smaller line back to the foot valve for that purpose
next wil jet pumps if there is too much flow to the outlet , the pressure required to help lift the water to the pump is reduced and the volume is also reduced
you indicate 4 sprinkler heads per zone but how many zones are operating at one time
check the expected delivered volume for the new pump against delivered volume of the old pump as a starter to find the reason for the poor performance of the new pump
check also the rpms of each pump as that also has a bearing on volume produced

Generally the drains that are controlled from the
OVER-FLOW do indeed have a rod that goes down
from the face of the overflow... which lifts (opens)
the drain by lifting a hollow (typically plastic) sleeve
from in front of the outflow of the drain...

It is hollow to allow the OVERFLOW to work at all times.

The version you seem to have... WOULD have a
bellows like device that pushes on a plug lever...

More complex... but I seriously believe both may be
serviced through the OVERFLOW
(will attach a drawing below)...

OBVIOUSLY you will want to block the drain before rolling & dropping screws in, on & around the drain HOLE...

Once you see the diagram of the drain MECHANISM...
you will be able to see that jamming in a coat-hanger
was a terrible idea.

You can still most likely remove and repair the
mechanism ... (from the over-flow)

ELSE
You are looking at buying a new one and installing the entire drain from the bottom (hopefully).

Hello Beryl Crosbie,

This is the FIXYA (USA based) site... where troubled
folks from all over thise GLOBE can come and get a
degree of information... possibly a bit of Sympathy...

Of a GLOBAL nature... Most FOLKS don't care about
your LOCAL PLUMBER (employer?).

Advertisements... elucidations or hallucinations about
SALES PITCHES... belong on other social media
(typically not encouraged here)... Savvy?
