Thread: pump short cycles when filter is installed

  1. #1

    Default pump short cycles when filter is installed

    I just installed a whole house filter and now the pump wants to short cycle. I took the filter out and the system is normal.

    Default Update

    Ok, I changed the Whirlpool 25 micron filter to a 30 micron pleated filter...working fine right now. Any ideas as to why the pump what short cycling?

    The filter must be installed AFTER the pressure tank. Any kind of a restriction before the tank can cause the pump to cycle improperly.
