    Question for variable speed pump owners

    Where do we take the initial readings from as far as a "clean" reading goes? cause on high the pressure is at 11... on low... it's 0... <--- not sure if that really is a good thing or not. LOL

    For a 2-speed you want to use high speed. For a VS you want to use a "high" RPM ... likely 2000+ rpm.

    Then you just have to check that speed to know when the pressure has risen 25%.

    Also, you want to be sure that you always use the same valve positions when checking the pressure as they can have a large effect on the pressure.

    ok... i have the 2 spd in my sig, so i'll go with the high setting pressure then... i guess every now and then, i'm going to have to switch it over from low (as that's where it's gonna be set to 99% of the time).
