I have a jacuzzi 1/2 hp submersible well pump.
No preventative maintenance is necessary. However, a happy pump always has water above it and should not pump sand. If the water level in the well is below the pump/motor they will overheat. If this is a problem your local pump company can install a module to protect your pump from this type of event.

Our water pressure stopped overnite, we hit the
The clicking you hear inside the little box is the contacts that send power to the pump. They have probably gotten corroded to the point they would not make contact. By kicking on and off you probably loosened some carbon, it was still making a poor connection and carboned up again. Only this time causing the points to stick open (so no clicking) You can take this switch apart and give it a good cleaning then reset the points. Or you can get a new switch and install it on the system. Ether way be sure that the power is off for these operations as this is all the power going to the pump.

What to do about sediment comming in pipes in
I believe sediment filter inline would take care off this.The only thing I can think of is that you have the wrong kind of
sediment filter on your line. You may want to check what the size of
the screen is, or what the micron size the filter will take out. Too
big of filter will let the small **** through, but too little will plug
up super fast. Sometime you have to take the good with the bad until
what ever caused the disturbance in your well is done.

Got a Mac Allister Mpwp130FTP 1800W pressure washer, and cant figure out how to connect the hose to the trigger at the back of the washer,
There are several common different types of quick release couplings in the power washer world and while it is possible you have the wrong lance and hose supplied with your washer, it is unlikely.
Many quick release couplings don't just connect by pushing but have a sleeve that must be pushed forward, pulled back or twisted or a button to be pressed. Mostly diy level washers have the lance, hose and connector as an assembly and the connector can't be replaced.
Most towns contain many businesses that use heavy duty pressure washers, vacuum cleaners, parts washers and suchlike and inevitably other businesses spring up to cater for the needs of local business providing a wide range of repairs, spare parts and accessories and they of necessity gather a wide knowledge of domestic equipment.
If you have trouble or doubts I suggest you locate such a business near you...
Too much oil is being
This is Stihl's manual showing the proper adjustment for the oiler. Flip the saw on its side, chain and bar side up, and look for a flat head screw.
Clockwise rotation on any saw is more oil, and counterclockwise will be less oil.
