    my old shurflow pump stopped working so i brought a new shurflow pump 100 psi 5lm
    it is run with a
    Varistream Digital

    my battery is fully charged

    my pump runs for about 3 seconds then cuts out then runs for 3 seconds and cuts out and so on

    if i connect pump direct to battery it works fine no problems (but uses to much water lol)

    can any one help me do i need a new veristream or do i need to calibrate my pump if so how

    You have a wiring fault. If you look at the wires that go direct onto the battery you may find that they are slightly discolored and is preventing the right amps to the pump. Strip the wires back to new wire and that should sort it out. Or could be a faulty connector.

    Check all your wiring.

    To calibrate it, i.e. set the pressure cut off consult your instructions, Williamsons pumps who sell the varistream should be able to help if you dont have the instructions, try the place you bought it from I would of thought that they would of sent it with instructions. Dont have one myself as I use Purefreedoms Flowmasters, they would talk you through setting it up and the people that sell the varistream should do the same.
