Question about Grundfos MQ3-45 1 HP Pressure Booster Pump
Sounds like the pressure tank isn't working right. The pressure tank should have air in it that is compressed by the water, so that when you open the tap, the air pressure should immediately begin pushing the water. Water is virtually incompressible, so you need that air to give you some volume to be compressed. After the air pushes the water for a moment, the pressure drops enough so that the pump kicks in to maintain and restore that pressure. If you don't have such a tank, that's the problem. If you do have such a tank, then it may be full of water and you will have to find a way to fill it with air. Or, perhaps the tank is not piped correctly. I hope you found this helpful. Good luck.
