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 :

A water flow timer using a ball valve contains an electric motor with gears to stop or start the water flow by turning a perforated ball within the water flow line. The gearbox in a ball valve timer makes a rumbling sound when actuated.
Check the connection to the docking port to ensure the timer is plugged in properly. Try removing the timer and reinserting it into the docking port, pushing down until you hear a click. If you are still not getting power, the timer may be defective.
The Instapark hose timer has a wide range of watering duration settings, from 10 seconds to 360 minutes (6 hours). The timer can be further programmed for watering frequency from just once every 7 days to as often as every 10 seconds.
There are three basic types of irrigation timers: mechanical, electronic and hybrid timers. Basic mechanical timers must be set manually, but are very economical. Be sure to monitor your lawn closely and make adjustments when needed with mechanical timers.
How does the System work? Smart-Hose incorporates a coated cable within the hose bore that is connected to the valve plunger, wedges or flapper. This cable acts as a compression spring providing thrust in the direction of both ends of the hose, holding the plunger, wedges or flapper valves open.
Electronic hose timers require a battery for operation. Most of these devices run off two AA batteries, though some smart hose timers might require more batteries for remote operation via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth.
It is certainly OK to turn off the water at the end of a hose for short periods. If you leave it on this way for long periods you are stressing the hose which could lead to a ruptured hose when you are not around. This could lead to a waste of water or to water damage if the hose sprays on something.
They vary in reliability and ease of operation, but the main problem with tap timers is that they reduce water pressure, which cuts down on the number of sprinklers or drippers you can successfully operate.

ANSWER : Have someone else check what you did. Hard to believe that two new units will behave the same and not work.

Couple of guys tried to help me on this, perhaps you guys could come back. I forgot to mention there is a pressure tank bladder type on the discharge side. Could the air in this tank be messing with the prime. I checked the intake. It has water in it after bleeding air from the discharge system where before it was dry before purging air. I think there is air in the system and wonder if it is coming from the pressure tank?. i open up one of the discharge valves and a lot of air comes out. Should I put a valve on the pressure tank to take it off line until I get water from the well?

Mar 12, 2010 – Could it be the check valve? I took it off and the flap appears to be working correctly. This well has been here a long time. Never given me any problems. I do have galvenized couplers on the discharge and intake sides. Old. Could these be leaking even though they show no sign of water? The discharge is able to hold 30 pounds easily overnight. I do not hear any vacuum in the intake when I take it off. Could the pipe to the well have a leak? I know I would have to insert a sleeve but I do not want to go through the hassle if I do not have to. I had put on a brand new pump from the hardware store that did the same thing so I think that would elliminate the pump as being the problem.
I disconnected it for the winter and rehooked it up. The galvanized couplers on the discharge and pump side are old but do not appear to be leakeing as I taped them well. The check valve seems to be functioning well as I took it off and the flap works correctly. The well is not pulling water. there does not appear to be a vacuum on the check vale when I losen it. could the check valve be bad? I am aware I might have to resleeve the well, but do not want to hassle with this if I do not have to. I want to eliminate everything else first. i put another brand new pump on it to see if it was that. That partiuclar pump which was the same thng did not work either.
I took the pump nose off and looked at it. The one way valve appears to be working fine. The impeller is working fine also evidenced by when I turn it on witht the discharge cap off, water shoots out. When I open one of the discharge valves and turn it on, the pressure drops to 10lbs. At this point the prime water has moved through the pipe and and the pump does not soound like it has any water in it. I pull the cap off and have to “reprime it again.” It again goes back to the pressure gauage rapidly fluctuating while pump on. I disconnect pump on intake side I hear no vacuum. The guage is on the discharge side. The seals on the pump nose do not look frayed or damaged. The pump is not leaking water in any of the joints. The pipes on discharge and well side do not appear to be leaking.

ANSWER : My friend, please boil your question down. Your title has to do with riding mowers but the leaking, bladder, impeller, air bubbles, pressure tank, check valve comments seem to be migrating toward a pump of some kind – well? spa? pool? irrigation?

Briefly, any system that involves a water source, a water moving device, water storage device and ultimate useage is subject to leaks … into the system and out of the system. If this is a well and you have air in your system, your pump may be sucking air at the well or any loose connection between the tip of the pipe and the inlet to the pump. Your bladder could have failed but from what I can get from your comments, this is not the case. On the pressure side, neither air nor water will leak in … only out.

Please recheck all connections. Make sure your check valve is installed correctly and not leaking. The check valve assists the foot valve, which may have failed.

I am more inclined to think your well may be at the end of its useful life. To prove or disprove, you could have a plumber put a vacuum gage on your pump. He or she can answer this question is about 90 seconds based on this test. Expect to pay for one hour of time, which will be less than the time you have already invested in your project.

My intex sand filter will not move water when I put the lever to filter? It will move water when I put the lever to recirc but wont move water with filter…why?
ANSWER : Im gonna guess that you stored the filter improperly off season and now the sand charge is hard as cement inside not alowing water to get thru , left alone for a week or so it might loosen up , but the best thing is to dissasemble filter and remove all sand and ck “fingers” inside this is fastest way
i allways use RV antifreeze 30/1 to store any pumps or filters off season , RV type because its nontoxic

I have a Comet BXD 2525 G pressure washer pump which is giving me some problem. (Maybe) I hook the water up to pump and the pressure hose up to the pump, turn on the water and the water sprays out of the water connection at the pump. I check the hose to see if it was clog ok and the next was a the water connection ok. It’s like the water is not going int the pump. When i start the pressure up the water come out of gun but no pump running like it should. The next thing i was going to look at is the unloader because this has to do with water pressure but i wanted to ask you first. Check oil and it is clean no silver in oil like worn parts. The pump was working fine did a wall stop working after that. No noise or any problem I also thought maybe something could be stuck like a valve on the pump. could you please return this e-mail thank you
ANSWER : The water inlet needs a gasket like all hose connections. If its gone the pump may be starving for water.

I have a Northstar pressure washer powered by a honda GC160 engine. The last time i used it, water leaks from the bottom of the unit, whether it is running or not. When running, the pressure is fine. I have felt underneath and it appears that the water is coming from the second opening from the rear. Is there a pressure relief valve there. I have a manual but cannot find any descriptors for underneath the motor.
ANSWER : This is a piston seal issue. You can get a kit to rebuild the pump.

Karcher K 2.26M 1.601-602.0 ; running it at pressure,all of a sudden loss of water pressure….looked at unit,water coming out by on/off switch. Removed back,removed whole unit from yellow body case.Turned unit upside down mistakenly,water/oil substance came out by fan (or very light weight oil….did not look like when water is in oil,ie:milky color..was darkish grey leaning towards black)immediatly flipped back right side up.
A) How did it lose pressure? A bad ‘o’ ring seal,a bad seal for one of the pistons?
B) Where did the oil come from? Internal,meaning another bad seal?Do I need to add oil if this can be repaired?
Put washer back together,did a quick “run” check.Unit still runs fine,but no pressure …water comes out of wand,and still comes out by on/off switch.

My little giant just stopped working, impeller turns ok by hand, no blockage, 110v to outlet ok. Always under water, never ran dry… Walter
ANSWER : Inside the pump on the motor is a thermal cut out if the motor has over heater from running a long time the cut out pops and it may not pop back in again? its that or there is a motor fault like brushes worn out

Culligan water filter is leaking – Culligan HF-365 Whole House Water Filter Housing
ANSWER : Turn off water
Remove filter and seal ring.
Look at mating surfaces.
Usually the cast metal has eroded away.
If it is the sealing ring , replace it. If it is the casting , replace the whole thing. Other brands may be an option.
