I had an irrigation system that was older than twenty years and I relied on it heavily for all the planting I have done in the last ten years. When the pump motor died suddenly I searched franticly only to find out that this motor isn't available any more. so I went online and discovered a pump assembly that looked exactly like mine. I went to the store with tape measure in hand and found it was an exact fit right down to the pipe sizes. I took it home and the next day my trees and flowers were smiling again. By the way, I saved $150.00 and a weeks time over replacing the motor.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by William Expectation Not Met. A Huge Hassle
I installed this Flotech 2 HP unit using PVC, meaning no pipe unions were used. After a couple of months of great performance, a leak occurred where the large fiberglass water reservoir/impeller cover attaches to the motor with an O-ring and held together with a metal compression band. It was a hassle since I had to cut up the PVC connectors to send it back to the manufacturer. I received it back repaired and reinstalled it with new PVC connectors (hassle). The company also sent me a "rebuild kit" for future use if necessary. Well, three weeks later, it leaked again at the same O-ring junction. I disassembled it and placed the 2 O-rings in the "rebuild kit". It still leaked. I returned it to Home Depot and received a full refund which I applied to a Wayne 2 HP unit. The water reservoir/impeller cover is made of cast iron and attaches to the motor with "bolts. Water pumping output is similar to the Flotec, however with it's cast iron construction as opposed to Flotec's fiberglass design, no leaks have been observed. So to save yourself some possible hassle, go with the WAYNE unit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ARGOLFER Every thing I expected!
From the box to the finished installation, a piece of cake. To date the pump has operated problem free.
Can't be more happy with this product!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Franco Powerful and reasonable cost
I have lived on a Lake for about 8 years.
I realized that the Motor that was pumping water from the Lake to my lawn was a FLOTEC.
I have two pumps and the main pump is a two HP Flotec.The other was a1 HP other brand.
I replaced both and what a pleasure to see all the sprinklers work as they were intended to.
Thank you for the great price,free delivery and fast shipment

The Flotec 2 HP Sprinkler Pump has been working as expected for the past couple of months without any problems. The wiring diagram in the manual states to follow it unless the wiring diagram on the motor is different. In which case follow that wiring. I know how to wire a motor but followed the sticker instructions (didn't work) then rewired following the manual (didn't work). The thing ran when I hooked up the motor according to past experience.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JRieves Flotec 2hp Pump a Solid Replacement but Not Quite Top of the Line
Solid pump but weighs about 50 pounds less than the one i replaced. The original replacement was 1000 dollars so the question is how does a 300 dollar pump last versus a 1000 dollar pump.

Pump quality is good, however, the GPM performance is about 80% of A.O. smith or F & W pumps, so if your sprinkler system is already max out, expect a 20 PSI pressure drop!.
