Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 36 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by great deal This pump works well if you don't have to draw. I pump from a ground level tank through a 2 inch line, 450 ft long. at the end of the line with good flow I get 45 pounds pressure. at the pump without pumping load the pressure is 90 pounds-not recommended except for short testing. The only problem is the turbine ring clamp nut is a the bottom. Before installing the pump you should loosen it and turn the nut to the top or the side-see photo--makes for easy cleaning later, if needed. oh yeah. . . the factory over-tightened the lower bleed bolt and broke the head off. The leak stopped by replacing the bolt. July 31, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 1.5 hp This pump was to replace a 1hp pump that I accidentally burned up. I wanted to go with the 2hp pump but other reviews were better for the 1.5. I've installed a sprinkler system over 2 acres this summer and this pump is more than enough to power everything. One line has 9 sprinklers, 2 Voyager rotor heads and 7 small pop-ups. At 250' from the pump there is more than enough pressure at max 47psi with MAXIMUM CAPACITY: 67 GPM FLOW at 10' LIFT and 30 PSI: 45 GPM. When I tested one of my last lines with 5 heads, a nozzle popped out. With a Voyager II rotor head pumping out to 10' I still had full flow with the other 4 heads. I have reduced the 1-1/2 suction and discharge line down to 1" and still have more than enough to push out 24 gpm to about 40'. In summary, I'm glad I saved the money by purchasing the 1.5hp instead of the 2hp, I didn't feel the extra price was worth the minimal extra pressure. I would recommend this pump to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent pump I have a 50 foot well and i am irrigating a 3 zone, 7 head each sprinkle system with this pump.. This pump has enough pressure to meet my requirements. Based on posts here and because it is an "Sprinkle Pump" instead of a "shallow well pump", I thought that this pump would not be able to draw water from my well. on the contrary, it does and I haven’t had any problems.. I have it connected to my sprinkle timer and it has worked every time.. very happy with my purchase January 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Performance on a budget I install these when a client can't lay out twice the $$ for a cast iron Goulds/StaRite/Franklin pump. Great motor, just drain before freezing, and don't overtighten connections...you'll get years of service out of it. Will lift a good 20' and we typically see 40 gpm @40 psi on 2" driven shallow wells. Not bad at all for the pricepoint. Moving up to the 2HP doesn't get ya much more, maybe a few gallons/few psi.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Pump is an excellent low cost work horse. Caution on allowing pump to run dry. I've used several of these pumps over the last 14 years and they are great. Never had a motor issue but units are enclosed in a ventilated shed. The only issue I've had is when they fail to build pressure (due to piping or control issues, no fault of pump, entrained air and low flow condition) and they run without water flow. There is no internal safety so they continue to run until the water in the housing boils and the plastic parts deform. The pump amazingly continues to operate afterwards but at reduced capacity. Rebuild kits are available however at about a third of the replacement cost of the pump. I have since added a pump circuit that only runs the pump when the timer AND pressure switch call for it to run. September 24, 2012
