I held the Pumptec face panel in to make contact and turn the pump power on. While it was pumping water,
I had a friend hold the float in an up position and then a down position. There was no change in pump operation.
The water never stopped pumping in with the float in either position and it should have.
Right after this I decided to ingage disingaged the power and got none of the torque or banging of the larger capacitor box/well head I mentioned in my last post.
now , it sound like I have two issues. The float malfunction and the pumptec problem .
What are the chances that these are two separate failure at near the same time.unless one is related or causes the other?
Im thinking cheap insurance to just replace both without wasting more time, as the cost is still cheap enough insurance to go risk damaging the pump.
Whats recommended now? Replace the float first and see if theres any change in how pumptec works ? or are the malfunctions both unrelated so i should swap them both out?
