Bravo 12 BST HP on second day's use fails to cut into high pressure mode, despite the valves on the boat being set right, worked beautifully yesterday, any ideas? Analogue version. Perhaps it got wet.

Just spotted you'd asked here too.

How about testing the pump by dialing in a high setting and running it with your thumb over the hose end to check 100% it's the pump at fault.

As a matter of interest does the dial type show the actual pressure on a needle as it rises or is the needle just for the set pressure?

Don't know about Firstrib's but my pump has a wheel where you set the cut-off pressure. No gauge.
