Answer: 
Run without suction isn't as bad as run DRY.
If you ran the pump without filling the pump cavity then you may have destroyed the seal for the pump.
If the seal is bad the pump will suck air when you turn it own and will never develop the suction required to lift water into the pump.
If is is bad then when you fill the pump cavity with water you will see it drip or flow out around the where the pump

Run without suction isn't as bad as run DRY.
If you ran the pump without filling the pump cavity then you may have destroyed the seal for the pump.
If the seal is bad the pump will suck air when you turn it own and will never develop the suction required to lift water into the pump.
If is is bad then when you fill the pump cavity with water you will see it drip or flow out around the where the pump shaft goes into the pump from the motor.
The other obvious fault would be that when you installed the new pump one of the plumbing fitting on the suction side is leaking. Either a bad glue joint, or a threaded fitting without Teflon tape of sealing compound. For the glued fittings you can try wiping PVC cement all around the joint to see if you can fill it in that way. For a threaded fitting you would have to either disassemble and reassemble the fittings with tape or sealant or, if you're lucky, put some sealant around the threaded fitting in hopes it would close any suction leak.
Even a small suction leak can kill the lift on a self priming pump.

Answer: 
The most common problem we see when the pump won't prime is a leak in the suction piping. Check all of the fittings in the suction piping for leaks. We recommend new suction piping and fixtures when you replace an existing pump. Also need to be sure the pump is primed per the user manual.

The most common problem we see when the pump won't prime is a leak in the suction piping. Check all of the fittings in the suction piping for leaks. We recommend new suction piping and fixtures when you replace an existing pump. Also need to be sure the pump is primed per the user manual. Remove the prime port and fill the pump body and all of the suction piping with water before running. Use a check valve or foot valve (depending on your installation type) per the manual as well. This ensures that the priming water does not run down and out of the suction piping. Feel free to contact us at the number in your manual for more assistance!

Answer: 
They are capacitors.
Capacitors store electrical energy and release it quickly.
On motors like this they help provide the energy to get the motor started.

Answer: 
Indeed those are the start and run capacitors. The start capacitor gives the motor an extra boost to get turning, then the run capacitor takes over once it is up to speed, and keeps it running smoothly.

Answer: 
you should never reduce the size of the inlet pipe. It should be the same diameter as the inlet at the pump. This will cause priming problems and limit the pumps performance (if you can get it to prime)

1-1/2 HP Thermoplastic Sprinkler Pump is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not last Bought this pump on May /2015 and stopped working on June 2016. Motor spins but sounds like impeller is broken. Very disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great pump Hello, I'm writing today about the EFLS15-HD irrigation pump. This pump was recommended to me by a friend who says he likes it better than the Flow-tech . He said it will last longer and that is is very quiet. I currently have a Flow-tech and have had no issues. One thing I did notice is that the port for the wiring will be much more easy to wire .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good pump if used as designed! I read all the other reviews first and still decided to try this pump. I think a lot of the reviews are negative because people just don't understand how this pump works. This pump is meant to supply you with a huge volume of water. If your output is not huge then purchase a different pump which is meant for lower volume. You can NOT hook up a pressure switch to this pump. Again this pump is designed for a huge volume of water output. If you don't have a huge volume input and output the pump will not last long. I have multiple well points which this pump is drawing from. It has replaced a very old and worn out 2HP pump. I did my calculations ahead and knew this pump should supply enough water for my sprinkler system. Because it is replacing an existing pump my installation was fairly simple. On the input and output pipes be sure to only use teflon tape and do not overtighten! Hand tighten plus only 1 1/2 turns! For all my glued connections I use the blue pvc glue which still works if you get the fitting wet. Plus the glue holds better than the cheaper glue. Electric hookup is simple and you can use either 115 or 230 volts. I always use 230 volts because it uses less electric, you can use thinner gauge wiring and motors last longer on 230v. Priming can sometimes be a challenge. Remove the priming plug, fill with water, replace the plug and turn on the pump. You might need to do the priming more than once. It took me three tries to get the pump primed but once I did, WOW! Incredible volume of water produced by this pump. This pump easily supplies enough water for my high volume impulse sprinkler heads. I gave the pump four stars because it does run hotter than any other sprinkler pump I have used.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I would not recommed this pump I had this pump installed in Oct/2015 and had to replace it Feb/20016. I only water 2 times a week and had it turned off for about 6 weeks through the holidays. it runs very hot and very loud. it got so hot it melted the wiring inside the pump. DoNot buy this pump. i would have given a lower rating but poor is the lowest.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Garbage Ever built pump are lasting 3-12 months if your lucky. I'm a sprinkler contractor and I've replaced 18 pumps that were practically brand new in the last 3 months. Keep making me $$$ ever built.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from These Pumps are Junk I installed this pump for my sprinkler system and used it exactly 6 times before it failed. During those times before it failed it worked great although it was very loud. The last time it ran I noticed the pressure was very low coming out of my sprinkler heads and the pump became extremely loud. So I checked the impeller to make sure it wasn't clogged with something. It wasn't so I checked the inflow pipe to make sure it wasn't clogged. It wasn't. So I replaced the back flow check valve in case it was bad and hooked the pump back up, primed it and ran it. A few minutes after turning it on there was a bang in the pump and it froze up. I checked the impeller and it was stripped and the diverter plate was cracked. Apparently there was a problem with the impeller and that's why the pressure dropped. The entire pump feels cheap. I think it's poorly designed with a clamp that holds the body of the pump together. That just screams leak eventually. The impeller and diverter are made of cheap plastic and the plug for the prime hole is cheap plastic. Next I will try a Red Lion pump. It costs more but the build quality looks to be much better than this piece of junk.
