So, at 3 am when I'm trying to sleep the jet pump clicks on just for a moment , then a few minutes later it clicks on again momentarily, repeat, repeat... This probably happens at other times as well, but it's not so annoying then; then I can ignore the problem.
Also, sometimes the Pumptrol needs to be switched on manually (3 times in one day recently)
Gould's 1 hp jet pump
New Pumptrol Square D 9013FSG2M4
New Amtrol WX-203
Also there is a pressure gauge after the pump and a pressure gauge after the tank. The pump gauge is sticky and reads 5 psi higher than the tank gauge, if that matters
A few months ago a friend replaced the old galvanized tank with the WX-203 and replaced the Pumptrol. He didn't adjust the pressure in the Amtrol.
Currently, the cut off is at 45 psi( according to the gauge after the tank) and the cut in is at 35 psi.
Do I need to adjust the cut in/out range down, and the cut off maximum up?
Do I need to adjust the Amtrol pre-charge?
What causes the momentary activation of the pump, and it's need to be manually switched on?
Thank you O Wise Ones.
I guess I need to answer my own questions.:confused:
