I am not sure, but DC motors will run backwards if the polarity of the incoming voltage is switched. I see this is an AC motor but they always run forward no matter the polarity, unless the polarity is reversed to the right wires inside the motor. The second link has a discussion on exactly how to do that. Thus it may have your answer, that those wires got switched somehow on your motor. Which means you need to buy a new motor.

Why does my pump loose pressure


Sounds like your not using enough water, and or your pipes to sprinkler is to to small, causing pump to build up to cut off head. I cant lay my hands on a performance chart for your pump, but 60 psi cut off and 20 on sounds about right. Try running another tap when your sprinkler is running, and see if this keeps your pump running

Not putting out enough pressure or flow to pop up sprinkler heads


Have you fixed this problem?
Q? Did you replace an existing pump. And what was the model and did it work.
Q? If its the same size as the fp4032, has anything else changed? Is there a filter that needs checking.
hydraulically to work it out I need the distance from pump to water, height and size of pipe. Distance you are pumping too, height and size of pipe. And what the "four heads are"? Nozzle size etc. To work out a flow/pressure rate.

You can't prime the pump with the same water source you are trying to build pressure in. Shut off all the water going to the house, use the neighbors hose or have several gallons (maybe 5) to prime the pump and continue priming pump until it starts to build head pressure then plug prime hole.

I have an aquamate pump and when i connect it to a continuous sprinkler it stops and starts contiuously


The pump is putting out too much water for the sprinkler.
You can raise the pump shut off pressure at the switch until it is higher than the pressure that the pump runs at with the sprinkler operating. You should have a surge tank connected to the system to give the pump time to balance with the sprinkler.
You can use more water with the sprinkler. This could mean adding another sprinkler or increasing the nozzle size of the existing sprinkler.

Pump starts working once connected to a power source.


Doesn't sound like there is anything wrong with the pump - it sounds like there is something wrong with your timer (or start panel). If the pump is kicking on, there is nothing wrong with it.
