The discharge pressure of a pump is lower than the calculated value of discharge pressure using the pump head. What could be the possible reasons ?

Hello there.

Would you be as kind to let me know if this is a hypothetical question or if the said pump is actually in use? The discharge pressure could be low for many reasons if the pump is in use. Filters could be blocked. Piston heads could be worn. There could be leaks in the pipeline. Could even be something as simple as the pump not being set up correctly.

Hope this helps
