    Normal occurrence for an E-60 being operated by a slik-stik or toggles. The hand held control corrects this.

    Like lawnmedic said, it's totally normal. It's caused by the C valve slamming closed when you let go of the switch.

    Doesn't matter which pump you have they will all do it. E47, E57 or E60. The only thing that will help is to switch over to the touch pad style controller.

    Is the toggles and the action they make the B and C solenoid go through why so many blow out those solenoids or every so often?

    As opposed to the gentler action with the touch pads?

    Thats an interesting question LLM, the touch pad MAY (can't say definitly) help prolong the life of the B valve but It DOES seem to help the C valve live longer in my experiences.

    Well it would make sense.

    I have the touch pad on my unit. I treat it with tender loving care too, never dropping it, and I remove it when not in use and keep it in the house so it doesn't freeze and all that.

    I've heard people have bad luck with them but i have to believe its because of abuse or what not.

    I might even take it out to dinner and a movie this weekend since its getting so lonely with no snow.

    heh
