    Sometimes I restrict the flow by pulling the trigger only half ways open. Other times I am fully open on the trigger. I'd say it's about a 50/50 mix off half on/full on.

    This is whats causing your problem. Either do not restrict your flow or get one of these.

    +1. Pressure switched electric pumps are designed for a given flow rate and back pressure and should either be on or off, never "chattering" in between. This can happen if your orifice is too small, and *will* happen if you half open the trigger. Tune your system properly for the job and open your gun fully. If that doesn't suit your job needs, you should use a constant pressure pump with a separate mechanical unloader.

    Wow thanks for the info.

    I guess I will operate full trigger from here on out, and see how it goes.

    [/quote] Bob is the MAN!!! Bob I'll be hooking up my pump in the box with the accumulator tomorrow. I hope when I pull the trigger I won't need to call you. But it sure is nice dealing with someone with your customer service ethic that is only a phone call away.

    Thanks for the kind words Kenny! But I'm just doing what should be normal in any sales situation.

    Will the fuse blow if he is holding the gun open for 10,15, 20 minutes at a time without giving the pump a rest?
    [/quote] No. Beyond 30 minutes of on time without a rest the pump will reach a temperature of about 120 degrees at that point I would give them a rest.

    What about the heat sheild Devalan makes to cool the pump. Do they work?

    How many cycles at full throttle should be right? Say in a 10 second span?
