|In response to Re: Pressure switch problem|
Gentlemen, It seems to work... Just did the test
and the pump didn't shut down. 1 complete turn to the long screw clockwise, 1/4 of a turn counterclockwise for the small screw as it was cutting off above 60PSI to bring it down to 58.... Thanks for the tip. Will keep on monitoring it...
: It sounds as if your tank is empting before the pump comes on. That happens when the tank air pressure and the cut-in pressure switch is too close. Tighten the nut on the tall screw in the pressure switch (caution, it's live with 240vac) about one full turn. That will increase both the cut-in and cut-out settings a pound or two. It's best to do this rather than drain air offthe tank. To protect the tank's 'bladder' the air pressure has to be 1-2 psi less than the cut-in pressure switch setting with no water in the tank.
