The pressure fitting in the back of the pump has a very small screen or filter in it, if this is restricted it will cause that, pull it out and flush it VERY well and it should fix it. The going out when "hard" on it is when it is surging and the flow won't allow it dut to that, Good luck.

Well I finally got some time to work on the pump @ first I thought it was the valve stuck open,so we pulled it out of the pump clean it up and put back in,the problem was still there,so off went the pump,took the tank off and there was no cracks,but we decided to put another pump on and the problem was solved.I would have never thought getting hit hard would blow up the pump,but this time it did, I guess there is a first time for everything.
