    I've got the system set up,trying to give it a go and the system I have with the spring g pump controller is not priming . I have a shuffling pump how do I go about using this without it being full of water first.

    probably just needs the water sucked through to clear the air lock

    make sure you have water in your tank/container and whack the controller up to full power so all air is pushed out of the system untill you get a strong constant steady flow.

    What it was is I was following the relay setup on here, got it working now I have taken it out.
    Any way of turning the pressure switch down so it turns the water off with a lower pressure . I know there's a n Allen key on the end but would not know how to use it

    I'm still having problems with this controller. As far as calibrating goes, I don't know if it's done it right or not, I don't think it has. The pump keeps clicking on and off constantly even while I've turned the ball valve off.
    Posting me right off I might have a dud.
    Let me get this right is the blue wire coming out of the controller go to the black wire on the pump.

    I think I've calibrated properly now,the ball valve is just the on and on switch I have.
    Am I right in think the pink constantly clicks to test for water pressure?
