Answer: 
Your pump might be like mine was set on 220 volts if so you can change the volts on it pretty easy. You might want to check it if you haven't already done that.

Answer: 
Hi Mike - If you are using a long power cord or are some distance from your power source, the first ting I would try is going with a shorter cord and/or larger wire gauge cord (10 or 12 gauge)...Good Luck.

Answer: 
Did you check the 120V/230V switch on the back of the pump motor? Or perhaps the wiring is not up to snuff. You should use at least 14 gauge wire.

Answer: 
NO....but there are two ports on top of the pump. One for discharge and one for priming. The priming port can have a tee fitting installed with a gauge and still have an opening for priming.

Answer: 
Sure didn't see one.....if it's there it's really, really small.. Seriously, however, there is a 3/4 inch priming port next to the outlet port and a $10 gauge could be installed there with a couple cheap fittings A tee fitting would still allow the use of the port as a priming port..

Suitable for water tank -> sprinklers without pressure tank?

Asked by
Read all my Q&A
July 6, 2016
I have a 500 gallon water tank and want to hook up a garden hose to drive several sprinkler systems. No water pull-up required, just pressure as gravity is not enough. Can I hook up this pump directly to the water tank and the hose to the sprinkler system, without needing a pressure system? Or will this pump break prematurely by turning on/off too often?

this pump will move 7 gallons a minute at roughly 50 psi resistance, with a 500 gallon tank, that gives you about 70 minutes before the tank runs out with the motor running the entire time. Dont run a pump with the pressure switch hooked up without a pressure tank it will cycle on and off (unless your sprinkler system demands so much water that the pump cant keep up) You can do it but you may need a Read More
this pump will move 7 gallons a minute at roughly 50 psi resistance, with a 500 gallon tank, that gives you about 70 minutes before the tank runs out with the motor running the entire time. Dont run a pump with the pressure switch hooked up without a pressure tank it will cycle on and off (unless your sprinkler system demands so much water that the pump cant keep up) You can do it but you may need a relief valve downstream of the pump to dump excess water back to the tank to keep the pressure within pump specs. You will also need a pressure gauge between the pump and relief valve,an electrical timer switch to stop pump before you run out of water and a GFCI circuit for protection.

Your plan is not a good one. For your system, just a good old irrigation pump would be a much better choice (and much cheaper).

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 60 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Replace Old Water Pump Had to replace 15 year old well pump. Decided to purchase this pump as a replacement. Installation was a breeze (all fittings from old pump fit new pump!!!). Primed, and the pump is working with two attached hoses with no problems. (I have one hose for the front yard and one hose for the back) Yes, I think that this well pump is a quality pump and a good value! August 9, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by works as needed Ordered it, arrived on time. Pumps very well. We will see how long it lasts. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product This product was a great value and met my every need. Home delivery was very fast and welcomed since I needed the pump quickly. August 16, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by proper wire sizing Using this pump to draw water from the lake to water my garden and flowers, 140 feet uphill with a 25 foot rise. Had a lighting receptacle at the bottom of the hill that was 14 gauge and the pump just hummed. I knew better but gave it a shot. After running 150 foot of 10-2 to the new receptacle by the pump it is pumping plenty of water. Lesson learned, follow the wire sizing recommended in the manual. August 2, 2016
