  • pump problems

    i have a 2600 psi pw., i use it for my use around the house only. the pw runs fine . starts up like a champ, the only problem i have with it is this, i have to be holding the pw wand in hand with trigger engaged when i start up the engine . if i do this the pressure is great and when i disengage the trigger on the wand and try to engage agian ,.the pressure isnt there. only if i stop the engine then engage the trigger then start up the engine agian . will it work properly ,. any one have idea what is wrong ?

    Do all

    Sounds to me like you have a BY PASS valve problem. It will hold to a certain pressure and then open. The problem comes in not being able to close again.

    You can lead a donkey to water but you can't make the Jackass drink.

      Thanks for the info, any idea on how to fix the problem or is it one of those things to be taken to professional?
