How would I check this to know what type of switch to use. I'd rather start with the least expensive item first. I have a Red Jacket pump. 1/2 HP, 60 ph/hz, 6.0 amps. I ran water for 1 minute full throttle from the tube faucet and got 4 gallons in a minute. Would this cause a low pressure switch to kick off? If I replaced the present switch with a regular switch might I alleviate the problem of the present switch kicking off?
In regards XXXXX XXXXX questions. No there is no decimated 3 positions. Just auto at the 9' o clock position. Start @ 10 o'clock and then if you continue to the off position, it snaps to Off @11o'clock position.
Yes I do need to hold the switch until pressure builds up. But there are times when the pressure gets to about 30, I let go of the lever and the pressure will drop to 0.
