    What do you think is happening?

    My honda belt drive pressure washer seems to run ok and after spraying continuous for about 3-min the pressure seem to decrease alittle. What do you think is happening and what should I be fixing? Thanks Hugh (Copgib)

    Guys after completing my investigation into the problem, I have discovered it was the customers water supply that was making my portable drop in pressure. it just shows that not every problem involves a machine malfunction. I have learn something new and I hope everyone who reads my thread will also learn. Take care! Hugh

    Must have been well water. Be careful with well water. You can burn out the homeowner well pump

    Hugh, did you feel a pulsation in your line when you noticed the pressure drop?

    Mike, there was a slight pulsation, but not real noticable. Just a slow drop in pressure. Hugh

    Thanks Art for the information. Even after all these years in business I am still learning from others. Hugh

    Hugh, you got it! I have a belt driven cat pump which runs extremely smooth. Whenever I feel the slightest bit of pulsation, I immediately stop flowing water and give the "well" pump 30 or so seconds to catch back up. This wasn't too big of a problem years ago however, the past few years have changed. It's almost like the well companies are cheating with under powered pumps???

    About 12 years ago, I was working on a nice 2 year old 2 story colonial which has 4 beds and 2-1/2 baths which could barely supply 3 gpm.
