pump runs a long time
Posted by Tracy on October 19, 2002 at 22:58:41:
My home has a cistern with a Jacuzzi pump/wellextrol tank in the basement. After running out of water I had to reprime the pump and the pressure switch wouldn't shut off....ever! I put in a new switch and found sediment in the diaphram of the old one. Now 3 months later it still works but seems to run a very long time and adjusting it doesn't make a difference. Also the pressure guage on the pump always reads 100 PSI.I suspect the switch and guage are full of sediment .......or not? What isthe proper way to proceed? Thanks a bunch.
