    Well things were going too well lol
    OK today i have had an issue with my pump, its a Shuriflo 100psi
    Basically when i put controller over 65psi the pump cuts on and off the controller reads DE now its connected too the reel and pole and no taps off , ive a Cleaning spot controller but have no instructions on how too use it, when i press the right hand button it give me Flow then Battery power then Calibration , this comes up at 0.00 but have no idea how too change that or even what it should be set at, it was a real pain today as it was causing issues with my gas heater, obviously if the flow was stopping and starting the burner was going off and on also it needs a high flow too kick in so i had too do without it
    Any ideas guys, is my pump fooked?? is it a wiring fault?? it seems to work fine below 65 psi but if i turn up higher it starts saying DE and pump goes off and on HELP lol
    ps i have ordered a pump from that link H put up ( thanks buddy)
    anybody got instructions for this thing lol and what should cal be set at and how do ya do it??? i know how too turn flow up and down and how to check battery voltage it reads 12.9 by ra way, dunno what split relay is fitted

    Would actually just bypass heater and wack the pressure up to test would be quickest way to eliminate

    Battery sounds good voltage wise so can discount that all good always had the opposite prob with the varistream stopping the pump so far

    Hi mate, on all these controllers press arrow up and enter button together, you`ll be in calibration settings 0-99, set to 99 and see if that sorts problem for you... (basically less sensitive)

    Also what heater are you using? mine fires at 25 on digital controller.

    Slightly off topic but does pure water damage the heater over time as pure water is not recommended in some pipe work
