    i take it that you are using a trailer jetter. meaning the excess water flow goes back into the tank via the unloader valve.

    you probably will wear the unloader as it's doing extra in bypass. try turning down the rpm as this will decrease the gpm the pump puts out.

    watch your psi and adjust accordingly.

    if you can rig up a pipe and bucket, you can do a real flow test.

    now if you can get a larger root ranger insert, your machine will kick butt at 10gpm. that's 1 gallon every 6 seconds

    do the test and check the math.
