    Sprinkler up and Running one day, Zero Pressure Next

    HI, I have a sandpoint/sprinkler system. We have been trying to get it up and running. Have not had luck with heads coming up. Ended up attaching a hose (with good water pressure) to the pipe coming out of the pump. (give it a jumpstart so all the lines had water) Did a test run of all the...

    Loss of Pressure to Yard Faucets

    Pressure is between 40-60psi. Works fine while using water in the house. Pump runs, starts up at 40psi shuts off at 60. BUT...When the outside yard faucet is turned on, it runs at good pressure until it drops to 40psi where the pump should kick on but pressure drops to zero. Put in a new...

    Loss of Pressure to Yard Faucets

    Turned it on pressure was holding normal on gauge, after a few seconds went down to zero and stayed there till I shut it off. We had a new pressure tank put in, in May. All seems fine in the house... worked fine at the yard faucets too, until just now.

    No Water to Any Heads

    We primed and it was pumping out good. The Pump was removed and reinstalled. We did disconnect and reconnect just in case we had a air leak, no changes. We will try turning the soleniod and see what happens.

    No Water to Any Heads

    Sorry if this gets lengthy, but I want to provide as much info as I can for a proper prospective of the issue. When we shut our system down for the winter all was working fine. Startup now we do not get any water to any heads. Only difference this year to other start ups was that we...

    Nuwell Tablet Use

    Hi, I have purchased some Nuwell tablets for my sandpoint. We have slowly been getting less and less water pressure from it. Hoping this will maybe clean the point out.... We have sandy soil, so not sure what could be blocking it down there. But hoping to try this, before putting in a new...

    Changing Order of Sprinkler Stations

    Hi, I have a fairly straight forward question...I hope. I have 12 stations in my sprinkler system. I have a RainBird Controller. I am wondering if it is possible to switch to have station 6 run first in my program? Basically I would like to switch two stations in the order they run...

    Sandpoint Sprinkler System Issue

    It is an irrigation pump. The rebuild kit did come with a new impeller and all the seals. Housing is metal. Ya I thought after rebuilding it that problem would be solved. At a loss at this point. Ya the pressure build up is amazing, and causes lots of issues.

    Sandpoint Sprinkler System Issue

    Sorry if this gets lengthy, it has been a frustrating ordeal. We have a sandpoint well, 24' down, last year had 12' of water in pipe. We run a 2 hp motor, for 10 zones, 6-7 heads a zone. This had been working wonderful for years. A few weeks ago one of the zones that has no heads was...
