    Hi guys just wondering if anyone has any advice? My back pack won't turn off when I shut the water off with the tap on my pole! The water stops coming out the jets but the backpack doesn't shut down it just makes a humming noise! But if I turn the water right up then turn the tap the pack pack will shut down. Any ideas??

    The pump has a screw on the top of it to adjust the pressure switch if it's the same as the kobold pump box
    Try screwing that in a turn or out a turn and see if that makes a difference
