Pump saver submersible pump switch
« on: February 27, 2017, 12:56:00 PM »
I have a small dairy operation. My Pump Saver mod.# 231, 230 volt is over 20 years old and just started switching off when trying to reestablish pressure.

Will now only build 2-3 lbs. then switches off, so I have to keep throwing the fused breaker box switch off/on in order to build pressure.

Do I need a new switch?

Well maybe.  If the Symcom is doing what it is suppose to do the well is being pumped dry.  But if the well is not really dry, you need a new dry run relay like the Cycle Sensor.
