The lift works, but I must put a load on the pump to keep it running and lift the boat. I turn on the water hose and let water out and the pump kicks on and also raises the boat.
I put a new pump in last summer. It comes on at 30 lbs and kicks off around 50. It has a small t handle, push forward and it opens to raise the boat then push back and it lets out the water and lowers the boat. It's an older Nyman lift. http://www.bastaboatlifts.com/boata/boata.htm which I think was purchased by Basta. I believe all I need to do is adjust the pressure. Any recommendations on the lower and upper settings. Thanks in advance.

Nyman was in fact absorbed by Basta. We have a few lifts that have both the Basta and Nyman names on them. Ours are all hydraulic rather than water pressure, so Im afraid Im not much help on the pressure question. We love our lifts though- it would be hard to go back to electric or manual crank now!

I have had my Nyman for 16 years and never had an issue . We run off the city water with no pump. No power No motors No problems.
