Hi, Its my first time posting here, lots of you guys know your pumps!!
I have a grunfos Mq booster pump boosting my domestic cold water into the house. Recently it has started turning its self on and off intermitantly,on for 15 seconds then off for 1 minute.
I have checked for obvious above ground leeks. Could any of you guys be able to tell me what coul dbe the problem.
Thanks in advance!

It sounds like you may have a leaking check valve.If you have looked for leaks after the pump, and could not find any, I would look to a bad check valve.

Check for any leaks in the house. It could even be a leaking flapper on a toilet. The pump is cycling because the system is loosing pressure some where.
