|In response to Re: Lake Water Pump Blows Line|
: Just installed a sprinkler system in my lakefront property that works great until it shuts off. When it
: shuts down the rubber coller I used to connect the pump inlet to the line to the lake ballons up then pops
: off from the pressure.
install a check valve on the discharge side of the pump . This will prevent the head pressure from the sprinkler system to back up and overpressure your connection. OR you could put a valve in the discharge pipe and simply close the valve at the time you cut off the pump. Leave the check/foot valve on the suction side of pump so the pump will remain primed
