So I upgraded the fountain pump today at HF..
I just jumped to the 264 /gph..
It works great. Straight into clear tubing it rockets out ..
But when connecting to a faucet it trickles.
So the faucet is useless. The 2.2gpm faucet is restricting the flow too
much and the pressure from the pump is too low. Called tech support and
they say the 2.2gpm require 65lbs of pressure.
No wonder my replacement shower head and valve don't work well.
I have well water and my pump is 35lbs... Way below..
So now I believe what they are saying that I need more pressure to get
Does anyone know of a source for a faucet that is not 2.2gpm rated?????
I searched and can't seem to find one. They have been required since 1992.
I want a faucet spout that can be moved back and forth so I can direct
the water to my spot... The spouts alone also have restrictors. The
faucet I had bought had restrctors in both the valves and spout... Freak...
Having the water recirculate to the 5gal pail is great.. I think this
will work even for cleaning paint brushes... And for sharpening...,
cleanup... Just have to figure out how to keep the water from getting
scummy without bleach...
I'm going to put a grid (like from flourescent lights to allow the crud
to fall below the pump and keep the pump water cleaner. This pump is
capable of pond water so it's not clean water.... Just don't want to
throw goobers from glue and stuff in there.
