I have a RP-10hp press tank that has been running fine. I noticed recently that the pump was running for about 3 seconds and then shutting off for abut 10 seconds. I know this can't be right, since the pump normally runs for an extended period of time when there is steady and continuous water demand. Is my pump going? Is there a fix?
1 - blown tank diaghpragm, replace tank
2 - wrong pressure in tank - adjust to 2lbs below cut in pressure
3 - bad pressure switch - replace
4 - line or nipple to pressure switch plugged up - clean it out
5 - pump going off on overload - replace pump
Always ask to see your contractors license!
