The number one cause of low or no pressure when using a pressure washer is a blocked or worn nozzle. Blocked nozzles will prevent water from escaping, while a worn nozzle will allow too much water to pass through, causing the pressure to drop.
Connect and Turn On the Pressure Washer

Connect the high-pressure hose to the pressure washer, then turn on the pressure washer and set it to the lowest power setting. Make sure that the nozzle is pointed away from you in the direction of the target surface. Grip the wand and pull the trigger to start spraying.

No water jet from the nozzle of the pressure washer > check if the nozzle itself is not clogged – if this is the case, clean or replace it. Also check if the water mains tap is correctly opened and that there is no problem in the flow of the suction hose.
The most probable cause is a clogged pump filter. The pump filter should be cleaned every three months or when it`s clogged. This filter is installed to catch foreign objects like buttons or coins, and to prevent these items from entering the drain hose.
The damage may not always be instantaneous, but the more you start your pressure washer without water, the more you risk ruining your machine. Take note that if either the pump or the motor fails, you won`t be able to use your pressure washer.
Turn the power on

Let the pump run for approximately one minute. If you opened any relief valves, wait until water begins to run from them before closing them again. If the pump turns off naturally, it`s primed. If not, you may need to repeat the process.

My pool pump makes a buzzing noise but there is no water circulating into the pool and no suction what-soever. What could be the problem?
ANSWER : First, Check your voltage at the terminal with a voltmeter. If it is within 10% of what is stated on the name plate, try the following suggestions. If is is more than 10% off, call an electrician. Common problems that cause this humming with no suction in these pool pumps are:-Take the pump apart and look for rubbing that could be causing your pump to tighten up. -Check for a seized motor. If the motor has seized up, you will have to have it repaired or replaced.-It could be a winding switch or capacitor problem. Again, a pro will have to service it.

I have a Utilitech brand one-horse motor convertible jet pump. The pump is running, and I’m down 43 feet to the bottom of my well. From the top to the water level is 32 feet, and I have 11 feet of water. When it’s not pumping, it sits at 20 PSI When it’s pumping water, it sits at 11 PSI. But then just pumps for appr. 10 minutes, and then shuts off. I can wait awhile & pick the pipe up and down, and it starts pumping again. Then I shut the faucet off and it goes back up to 20 PSI. Then I turn it on & drops down to 11 PSI. I do not lose my prime, and I have no leaks.
