How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?

We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :

Try removing the tubing and blowing air through it. Check pressure switch tubing for leaks or clogging. Clean or replace the tubing. The clog could also be debris in the orifice on the bottom of the pressure switch sensor, or inside the sensor requiring that the switch be replaced.
If a valve between the pump and the pressure switch has been closed the pressure switch will call for water and the pump will run continuously. Check the Pressure Switch. Look for any obvious signs of wear. You are looking for contacts that are stuck open or close, burnt contacts, or a melted wire.
Because air is leaking somewhere into the pump, it is unable to build up full pressure, and therefore cannot reach its deactivation pressure level. Result: the booster pump runs nonstop. Solution: check all the hoses / pipes for holes, and seal them.
Extremely-short pump on/off cycling or pump chattering is usually caused by a blockage at the pump or water system output, like a clogged debris filter. This on-off cycling rate will typically be a second or less.
Failure and overheating will occur if you leave the pump to run continuously. If you need to prime your pump often, you probably need to have your foot valve checked.
Turning off your well pump reduces your risk of flood and water damage. Additionally, many people cannot stop themselves from thinking about their well pump that they left running. If you tend to overthink, turning off your pump before leaving town can bring your peace of mind.
Though most pumps do cost a nominal amount of money to run 24/7, if you shut yours down each night, you could be affecting your pond`s water quality and your fishes` wellness, and that could cost you even more in the long run.
A heat pump that runs all the time doesn`t necessarily signify that there is a problem. When it`s very cold outside, your heat pump will work harder to meet the heat demands in your home. Therefore, it may run continuously in order to warm your house to the temperature you`ve set your thermostat to.
So a minute on and a minute off has always been the minimum rule of thumb. Two minutes on and two minutes off is just that much better for the motor. With the old conventional pressure tank method, the pressure tank fills at the rate the pump can produce, less the amount of water being used at the time.

Generally, if your RV water pump keeps running even when you`re not actively using it, it indicates that you have a leak somewhere in the system. This might be due to something as simple as a loose connection or something as annoying as a crack in one of your lines or a defective RV water pump pressure switch.

The well pump is running, but no water is supplied to thr irrigation lines. once I put water in the pump housing by removing the pump guage the pump pumps water through the irrigation lines. when it shuts down, iloose the prime again. what should I do?
ANSWER : Sounds like you have an air leak. First check your fittings, next carefully run water over the pump seals (avoid getting water on the motor or you’ll hurt yourself and the pump if not worse) the pump will prime if the leaking seal is covered with water. Take your time and be careful and it should only be a matter of a loose fitting or simple seal swap.
