    Dear sirs, could you please instruct me on how to adjust the settings on this pump.Currently it is shutting on and off continuously.We have a washing machine, and our water softener draining into this tub, I think at different times.I know there are two adjustments, a pipe with a hose connected, which slides in and out, and a threaded fitting, with a locknut, which screws in and out. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    I haven't seen a shellback pump, but if it's like most pumps, you will need a check valve to prevent pumped water from dropping back into the tub.

    A pump without the checkvalve will cycle all day.
