Answer: 
Yes, it can. See your instructions on how to convert from 210 to 115. A video is available on YouTube showing how to do this. As always turn off power or disconnect before performing any maintenance or repair of pump to avoid electrical
shock.

Answer: 
Yes, there is a voltage selector inside the control box. Just remove four (4) screws to get access to the voltage selector. Remember to verify the manual for the correct wiring configuration for 115 volt (live, common and ground).

Answer: 
I hope your question has been answered before this but if not, here goes.
What you are experiencing is called short-cycling created by water hammer causing the pressure switch on this pump to open and close rapidly. This occurs when there is no compressible space in the system and instead the uncompressible water causes the pressure switch to rapidly switch on and off as the water bounces back and forth

Assuming you used the correct procedure to set the pressure in your bladder or diaphragm pressure tank (the pump should have been turned off and the tank should have been empty before setting the air pressure), the pressure tank is likely defective (water logged) and will need to be replaced or the bladder replaced.

Answer: 
Well, It probably will work OK for intermittent operation at a reduced flow. If operated continuously it is possible the motor would overheat. The motor will have to work harder to draw through the reduced size line. You will not reach advertised flow because of the reduced inlet size.

I used a water heater expansion tank that cost under $100.00 to address this. Hope this helps. Read Less

1/2 HP Shallow Well Jet Pump is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from 1/2 hp shallow well jet pump It has a one year warranty , really . So that means it won't last any longer than the Flo Tech that HOME DEPOT sold me last time. ( I am trying ) P.S. I only had it for one week.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't buy this pump. This product is poorly constructed exclusively for Home Depot. This pump lasted a year and 8 days before failing. The shaft seal failed and everbilt doesn't offer replacement parts nor can you find them anywhere else. If you have any problems you have no choice but to buy a new pump. Spend the extra money it's worth it. The pump I had prior to this lasted 17 years.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice price, good quality I bought this pump to replace a burned out one. Easy to install, easy to follow instructions. After installing and priming, The pump ran for about one minute, over heated and quit. It did not even get to 40 psi. I did some checking to find out what was wrong, and found the expansion tank pressure was at 35 psi, I reset it to 28 psi and the pump worked fine and has been doing good for about a month. The pressure reaches it's cutoff of 50 psi and the pump shuts off, When the pressure drops to the cut in of 30 psi the pump starts and runs. no more problems.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Does not perform well I purchased this pump because it was the only available locally and I needed quick installation. First one failed within 3 weeks of installation. Pressure control device failed allowing pressure to rise to the point that it blew off hoses and drained about 2500 gallons of water into my pump house and onto the ground. Home Depot did replace the pump quickly. This failurewas very frustrating. Not only did the failure cost me the installation (twice) plus the $120 for the lost water, but the 2nd pump is performing very poorly as well. It is still working but nothing like the old pump that was over 20 years old. Thank goodness I will have county water installed this summer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Working pump! We have water! This is basic thermoplastic shallow well pump. We purchased it to replace an old 1/2 HP pump which finaly destroyed itself rather wetly. Replacement cost/time to purchase a likekind pump was in excess of $300 and more than a week. This pump was available at the store. Physical Installation: The pump did not fit the 4"-on-center mounting holes on our well tank (it has 5"-on-center open mounts) with a foot on the motor. We had to build a plywood pump mount. Physical mounting was easy after that. It isphysically light (~14 lbs total, 16 or 17 lb. filled). Pipe installation was straightforward: 1-1/4" inlet, 1" outlet (NPT). Both inlet and outlet have some bulk/heft/strength. I installed a priming valveabovethe outlet (nipple, tee to house, valve above with plug (prime by opening valve and pour water in until inlet piping is full, close valve. Repeat as needed. Plug other side of valve when done - keeps stuff out of valve). Electrical: The pump is prewired for 230VAC. Do the switch in the cover for 115VAC. You will fry the motor otherwise. We paid attention to LINE(white) and POWER (black) locations. Startup: PRIME the pump BEFORE stating the electrical. Okay? PRIME.THE.PUMP. Started right up for me (220VAC single phase, 12' pull from water surface, good foot valve). Quality: build is OK but isn't standard C face motor (so I couldn't use the existing pump mount). Volume: it keep up with running a shower whichis what we need. I'd say it completely filled our 20 gal tank in about 4 minutes so we're getting about 5 gpm at pressure. Overall: it works, and so far it has no issues. We're happy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Gets the job done, but not a pump I'd recommend for the long run This replaced my cast iron pump. Sure it pumps water, decent pressure ect. The problem is that is sounds like screeching cats when running, the nice light weight design isn't the best to use when you are running flexable PVC lines because unless the lines are secured independant of the pump, the temp changes and contracting and expanding of the lines can actually move the light weight pump...found mine laying over on it's side...sure this could be fixed if I bolted it to the concreate floor, but just letting you know there is a significant difference from the weight of a cast iron pump and its stability to this unit. If I wasn't selling my home, I would be replacing this. The new owner can decide what they would like to do.
