It tracked the water pressure gauge correctly, so we now know that gauge is OK. 2) There is a ball valve on the 1/4" pipe between the water pressure switch and the tank T. That valve was turned off once the cut-in took place. Now it i cutting in at forty psi and cutting out at fifty psi. The cycle used to be charge up to 42 psi, cut out and settle at 40 psi, draw down to 30 psi and then the pump would cut in. $28.95.

Next, the water pressure tank was drained and refilled in normal use mode (by flushing a toilet) and the water pressure switch reverted to its troublesome ways of cutting-out near 55 psi. The FSG2J20BP has a 20 psi to 40 psi pressure setting range activates an electrically driven water pump within a power circuit when the adjustable rising and falling thresholds are reached. I also fiddled with the small nut. If so, how can I return it the original cycle described above. Prior to adjusting the switch, follow safety precautions and look for any faults in the switch components. Discussion in 'Pumps and Tanks Well Forum & Blog.

Apologies for the delay. give complete detail about the adjustment screws for a water pump pressure control switch.You'll see that there are estimates for about how much pressure is represented by one turn of the adjustment nuts (against spring pressure of course, so you'll need to re-tighten until the slack is gone;When the system operates observe its pressure and behavior and that will help you see what further direction you want to adjust the two adjustment nuts. As it reacts to that pressure change in the system the pressure switch generates or drops an outgoing signal that is used to initiate another action. The cut-in (range) is set at 41 psi and it reliably functions at this set-point after many cycles. Watch out: messing with a pump pressure control switch exposes live electrical connections - you can be killed if you touch live wires. "click,click,click,click, then it finally sticks or maintains contact and the pump fills up the tank and stops. - Jack Nelson 7/7/12.
