I have to turn it on and off via the switch on the master panel. Now I haven't spent much time looking into it but I believe its the vacuum switch assembly lo...

Just a year ago this past holiday we had one go up here in Presque Isle Bay. It killed one person and badly injured others.

Better be sitting down when you price out that pump.
You can actually buy all the pump pieces and put one together for about 2/3 of the price of the pump. Very easy to do.

Also the time that went into making the few special tools that we needed and also the welding that went into making...
