Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Countrymom Good quality pump
The well pump is very sturdy, much better than the County Line 1 hp pump from Tractor Supply it replaced. Everything about the install was as expected. It took a little effort to prime it, but as soon as it started pulling water it has run like a champ. My only complaint, and I totally admit it was my ignorance that caused the problem, is that I need a shallow well pump. This pump easily converts to a shallow well pump AFTER you add the FP4875 Shallow Well Jet Kit to it. This is NOT included with the pump and Home Depot does NOT carry this product. I found it on Amazon for $55, but of course that left me without water for several more days.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Rico only half the pump
The rest of the pump is out of stock. the shallow well ejector is not available with Home Depot. So I guess I will return it or go on a search for the rest of it. .

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DJ1969 I would give it a 0 if I could
Bought this pump to replace another 1hp shallow well pump that went bad. Got the conversation kit for shallow well and followed instructions to the t. First time it leaked right where the conversion kit connected. Not a little... ALOT! And it also leaked at the base of the t outlet. All fittings were Teflon taped and securely fastened. Took both products back to HD and the promptly swapped them for 2 new ones. Got home, re plumed , Primed and guess what ? Yep, Same 2 problems! I am so upset, no water for 2 days and this has just added to it. Steer clear of this piece of junk and spend the money on a decent one!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RednexToyz Works Well with the Well
Living in the country, we have no option for "city" water service. We rely on keeping our own well maintained and our water system operational. A few years back we opted to duplicate the operating system of our well to ensure that down time of pumps/switches at the well was minimal. I am using this pump as a backup, plumed in the system, to our existing pump. This does a good job. Quiet & self-priming after the initial prime (which I found easy to do). Works with 110/240V electrical systems. Built in pressure switch and pressure gauge allows for visual confirmation it is operating under expectations.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AString Great pump. One drawback.
The drawback is that the holes are too close together for PVC fittings. One of the holes has to be extended with metal pipe. Then you can continue with PVC. The fewer connections the better and this creates an extra connection. That being said, It is a great pump. Bought this as a replacement pump for a forty foot well. Primed right up as per instructions. Much better pressure at the faucet than the old Sears pump. Quieter too.
I recently replaced a pump on a 25' well. For that I used the Wayne 3/4 hp shallow well jet pump. Very happy with it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by NH1966 Leaky fitting at front of pump housing.
I had the same problems as DJ1969. No matter how tight I made the 1 1/4 inch pipe at the plastic housing it leaked. Pump will be going back to Home Depot. It's time to find a pump with the good old Made In The USA.

This is the second pump that has leaking fittings on the pump. The second one won't even build pressure the leak is so bad. It is going back tomorrow for a full refund.
