Who is bashing his porty, Troyster? If you are referring to me, grow up and stop your B$. Didn't expect that from you.

You most likely have a leak in the water inlet to the pump, causing it to lose prime and suck air. The usual culprit is the plastic fitting at the pump itself.
Could also be a Leak in his Brain sucking air?:rolleyes::p

I was working at a job. Every time I pulled the trigger my PSI went from 400 to 0. I can clean the carpet without a PSI, but these were thicker and very dirty carpets. I would have liked to have some PSI. Any of you Porty Guys run into this issue? Bad Water Pump? Thanks.
How old is your machine and what model pump do you have. I hate to disagree with the experts here but I don't think this is a priming issue. Usually when a pump is not priming you will have no psi showing on your gauge at all. My guess it needs to be rebuilt. Either Pumptec or the new Cat pump are both pretty easy to rebuild. One here said to check the regular. That's a good idea. It could be as simple as that. If you need some help call Nathan at Mytee on Monday. This is not a Mytee machine but he'll help you anyway. The number is 858-679-1191. He gets in at 8:30 pacific time.

gauge is put on the output side of the pump so when you trigger the pump it drops totally normal if it was put on the regulator side of the pump it would only be activated when the trigger was pulled.
So basically on a portable is normal to have pressure drop

You may have air trapped in the line. Or your jets are too big? Too many or worn out for the flow of the pump.

When my old Powr Flite has a dramatic decrease in pump pressure it was because of air in the pump as John just said. Just bleed 30 seconds or so and the issue always goes away.
