Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RCrandall Great Pump for heavy use
I upgraded from a 1/2HP horizontal pump to this 1 HP vertical two stage. It should save money. The old one ran for about 20 seconds to get back to pressure. This one is about 3 seconds.
I did not like the fact that there was no base. I built one easy enough but that should be something standard. It was also difficult to prime. I normally put a Priming 'T' in but this one said it primed easy the first time and was self priming thereafter. Not so much. It took 7 gallons going into that little hole for the pressure gage and about 10 attempts to take a prime. Save yourself some time. put in a priming 'T'.

I had a house water pump damaged by winter freeze. I was looking for a pump with similar construction and pipe connections as my old pump that would minimize my re-installation issues. While the manufactures name has changed I believe this is the old AO Smith pump that had been working reliability for last 30 years in my house.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Geezar Good Pump but lacks some features
Pump seems to work very well however the base does not have a plate type bottom to cover a 6'' casing like my previous 1hp jet pump so had to build one out of wood to support it... also the control does not have an on/off auto switch at the pump which is a very important feature as in my case the power panel is about 100' away..My previous pump also came with adapter and fittings (foot valve & venturi) at comprable price but that was 1997..Sears...so maybe just inflation...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Alex 1 HP Multi-Stage Deep-Well Jet Pump
This pump after installing this my self and having a pro wire it up, this works great and I will not have any concerns at all. Make sure to have this wired right to a circuit breaker.. This pump will last 20 years as long as you maintain the pump and make sure the water does not freeze..

Great replacement unit for STA-RITE MSE-7 model well pump. Form fit and functional with no additional re-work required. I would describe this unit as a plug and play replacement. Great pump and a great savings and cost.

Flotec pumps are great water pumps for the dollar. Getting harder to find locally but well worth shopping on line to find them.
