Recently when my water pump for my cistern (holding tank)comes on
it draws enough juice to turn off the computer on a separate line. It has happened in the passed but periodically and never for the length of time it has been doing it lately.
I have reduced the number of loads (other equipment) on the line to no avail.
The water pump has always draw a lot of power. Enough to dim the lights for a brief second. I replaced the switch on the water pump about a year ago so i know its fairly new.
The water pump is on a line with a single light & switch only.
The computer is on a line with 4 other receptacles.
I have an 100 amp service and the home is roughly 40 yrs old.
I have not added any new line in more then 3 years time period.
Any suggestions on what maybe causing the pump to draw more power now then in the past? :confused:
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
