Default Sewer injector pump

Workin with a zoeller pump and it keeps cycling too much. If the shower is running the pump kicks on 3-4 time a minute, only pumping out a little bit of water each time, any suggestion before I take the lid off? What do you think is causing this?

I'm sure he does have a problem if the pump injects water into his tub.... He may need to up the hp on it to cancel out the head pressure it takes to overcome the injector.... Lol I just confused myself. Haha

Why don't you try humoring us by posting the mandatory intro?

Sure couldn't hurt.

What's humorous is when newbies come on this forum and demand advice without posting an intro. Then it becomes a "humor" forum...
