I think i may have ruined my water pump
Well its that time of year for winterizing here on Long Island. I usually just suck antifreeze thru the pump pushing the water out of the lines and wait to visually see pink stuff coming from each location. This year with me reading so many on here blow the lines out then do the antifreeze I figured Id try it. I set the regulater for about 40psi on the compressor and like a dope I hooked up it up to the inlet side of the pump. Not thinking about and then realizing the fact this side never sees any pressure at all I disconnected it and connected to the spare port next to the outlet side. After blowing the lines clear I fed the tube into the antifreeze bottle and hooked up to the pump and turned it on. It does not turn off now after it pulls a prime. Pump constantly ran on me even when there were no faucets open. I know this thing should shut off once it pulls a good prime and the outlet line is charged with fluid. Im thinking I screwed up the pressure sensor. Guess I will be replacing the pump in the springtime hope this helps somebody else avoid a problem.
