Hi Everyone - I recently installed a single phase 3 HP Texmo submersible pump for my bore. The pump is currently at a depth of 380 feet. The display on the electricity meter shows the incoming voltage in the range of 240 to 250 volts.
When I switch on the starter the voltage reading on the electricity meter and the starter panel shows as 160 to 170 volts and the functioning of the pump becomes erratic, sometimes pumping water and at times not.
I observed that when I keep pressing the green button on the starter panel (on button), the output of water doubles from the outlet as compared to when I just leave it on after pressing only once.
I would like to understand the impact of continuously keeping the starter switch on. What does it do? Why is the water output more? Does this cause any damage to the electronics inside the panel or the submersible pump?
Would a servo stabilizer help me here? Which one would be better - manual or automatic? air-cooled or oil-cooled?
