    New pump not priming

    Thanks. So a suction leak or a bad check valve would cause water to disappear where the yellow arrow is in my new picture? This is below the inlet line. Does the water evaporate?

    New pump not priming

    Fair enough. Can you help me understand what would cause water to disappear in the pump housing, below the suction line inlet?

    New pump not priming

    Hello, I had a voltage issue with my prior motor so I just replaced it. I put in another 1.5 HP Flotec. On my prior pump I am guessing I was losing prime in my suction line because it would take 30-45 seconds for the pump to bring up water, but it always worked. With the new pump in place I...

    Pump motor not coming on

    I need to have a friend come over and check the voltage. For my own education, the pump is 6 years old, has been working fine and worked fine on the cycle right before this happened. what could have happened all of a sudden with the voltage? It does cycle on and off at least 3 times each time...

    Pump motor not coming on

    Thanks. The capacitor looks visually fine but I'm going to replace just to check.

    Pump motor not coming on

    After further review, it is humming for about 3 seconds and then the breaker trips. Could this still be the capacitor? It does get really hot after trying to start so I guess it is auto shutting down

    Pump motor not coming on

    Hello, I have a Flotec 1.5 HP for my well. This morning I watered the front yard fine and when I went to water the back the pump would not come on. There is no humming or anything. I waited 30 minutes and same thing. I did notice a little smell near the pump but can't say for sure that...

    Irrigation pump on but no water

    Hi, I don’t have a lot of knowledge on pumps but here is my situation. I have a 1.5 hp pump on my well for my irrigation. It is coming on but no water is being pumped out. I have not noticed any significant issues recently and just watered two days earlier. Could it have lost prime? Is it...

    Hole in bottom of bathtub faucet

    Please see the attached picture of the hole on the bottom of this spout. Is the hole on the inside supposed to be for the Allen wrench because it looks like a perfectly round hole?

    Hole in bottom of bathtub faucet

    Hello, our bath tub is probably over 30 years old. The bottom of the faucet has a 1/2 size or so hole that the previous owner partially plugged by rigging something to fit inside the hole. My first question would be do you know why there would be a whole under it? Second, what he did to plug...

    Mini split recommendation

    Hello, I need to purchase a 1k or so mini split, maybe 9000 btu. I understand the market has been bombarded with a lot of cheap knockoffs from overseas. My wife just lost her job due to Covid 19 so my budget is limited. I don't have the dollars for a Mitsubishi or Fujitsu but I also don't...

    Pulsating water from shower

    So today the pipes were pulsating with no water running. I took a shower and about 20 minutes after taking a shower the pipes started pulsating but I couldn’t tell where it was doing it because it only lasts about five seconds. what would make the pipes pulsate with no water running?

    Pulsating water from shower

    So I was able to look at the inside of the toilet while it was making it’s whistling or hiccup noise. In the attached picture there were bubbles in the water around the green piece and water was coming out of the black tube into the white pipe. It wasn’t a steady stream of water but little...

    Pulsating water from shower

    Thanks. I will try that. Any thoughts on the shower? If air is getting in where can I start, would the cartridge cause that? Water heater? When I repaired the tee in the attic could the new fitting have a pinhole gap, I checked it over several days and there was no leak

    Pulsating water from shower

    The water pressure at the main valve coming into the house is 60 PSI. The shut off valve coming into the house is a ball valve and I was told that they do not have a washer, which means that would not be the cause of the thumping. when the thumping happens the water is sputtering during those...

    Pulsating water from shower

    I can do that. Where should I check the pressure at (spigot outside) and what readings am I looking for (what is acceptable and not acceptable)?

    Pulsating water from shower

    To kind of summarize, the toilet pulsating happens on it's own whether in middle of the night or other times. I don't think the toilet issue is related to other fixtures in the house coming on or off. The shower pulsating is normally when in use it doesn't happen every day, maybe every few...

    Pulsating water from shower

    No, sorry for any confusion. The shut off valve outside the house has some water drops on the top of it. Don't know if it is from the dew but the dirt underneath looked like it was a little wet. If it is has a leak could that be causing my pulsating?
