Customer Questions & Answers

Will this pump work on gravity flow water?

Asked by: J60
Yes. You put it in line with the gravity flow source.

Can this pump be used with a presser tank?

Asked by: Sam
Actually it can. I used it that way for a number of years. It does not need the pressure tank however. The pump has a very small pressure tank which pushes the water when you initially open a valve. The pump as a flow sensor which will detect the motion of water and turn on the pump, which stays on till the flow stops. If you use with a pressure tank the flow will be more variable because the water won't be flowing from through the pump as quickly. It also means the pun doesn't cycle as much which could help with pump life. But I've used the same pump without a tank for years not without issue. Much simpler setup to use without the tank and I think a better experience.

inlet pressure

should I use a pressure regulator on the suction side, local codes require a max. discharge of not more then 80 psi for domestic use ? also the suction side of the city water connection is 3/4 in.. will reducing to that size cause any problems ? the water lines in the interior of my home are 3/4 to 1/2 inch. I know I can't change the volume, will the pump maintain the pressure when more then 1 outlet is opened thank you

Is there an issue putting a whole house filter on the suction side of this pump? I have a customer who has to constantly rebuild this unit due to mineral clogging. I have tentatively suggested a filter which has a 20 GPM flow rate rating.
Asked by: Patrick
I see no problem with that, In fact I think it is a good idea. These units are used as shallow well pumps and to pull out ponds, so the introduction of sand is a problem i have encountered before. I caution would be to make sure the filter has enough capacity so that it doesn't present to much of a pressure drop, AKA resistance. Sand and dirt is actually pretty large as it pertains to water filters so you do not need fine filter. Honeywell Braukmann had a nice one I use to sell. I don;t know if it is still available. It used a permanent screen filter that never needed to be changed. You would only need to back flush it when the filter became clogged. I would frequently recommend this as a prefitler in systems. It was used to remove the big stuff so the finer and more expensive filters would last longer.

Customer Reviews

MQ3-35 3/4 HP 115-Volt Pressure Boosting Pump is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buyer Beware - Bad Pump! Original MQ-35 pump lasted 8+ years, was a great pump! Replacement lasted only 4 months of light residential duty than started leaking. 3rd replacement leaked within 48 hours. Must have had a bad run on shaft seals. Can't keep installing this pump until they resolve the issue. Customer service is limited, website requires email and than wait for response, unacceptable. Can't currently recommend this product, unfortunately had to go with another manufacturer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Paid new for used I opened the carton to find the unit was previously used. The owners manual had notes in the margins and areas hi-lited. The unit works ok. I just was very disappointed to pay full price for a unit that obviously was not new.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great! I have been using these pumps for about 8 years now and they seem to be the most dependable for the price. Great product and easy to install. In the past i have changed things around and needed replacement parts and it was easy to get them though the manufacturer. We have one pump that feeds our entire house with no issues, the rest of our applications are in the workplace and are running at high demand with no issues at all. Pricing at the Home Depot was cheaper then our commercial account at the local plumbing supply chain. This is a great product, and i highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome pump! VERY easy install! No plumber needed with the help of a couple 1 inch shark bite metal water hoses with 1 inch female threaded ends!
