I am well pleased with this pump. Unfortunately I forgot to drain our last sprinkler pump over the winter and it froze. I needed a 2hp and this was the best price I found (and with free delivery). Pump has worked flawlessly so far and is very quiet. We use it to pull water from a lake and water our yard.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JimPumper A waste of time
I installed this pump to replace a FloTech that had frozen up over the winter. The specs on this pump are better than the old pump which made it worth having to install different mounting bolts and adjust the inlet and outlet plumbing.
So I fire it up for the first time and it works great so I turned it loose on my landscape irrigation system. It got through circuit 6 of 8 and then lost pressure. No leaks just no pressure.
I pump my water from a creek fed pond. Since this was the first pumping of the season I suspected the inlet in the pond had been covered over in water weeds. To fix that I had to drain the pond and slog over to the inlet in the middle of the pond. Well, there was no problem with the inlet.
So I spent the next three days running a new inlet in case there was a problem with it. Also replaced the foot vale and check valve and pulling the pump housing apart and greasing the front seals (which all required dismantling the plumbing again).
After all that I fired it up again and it developed about 25 lbs of pressure (out of 50 in the spec) and then blew out the rear seal of the pump housing spraying water all over the motor.
So now I realized that the problem was with my brand new pump. What a pain.
Now I have to either order another one of these or re-plumb everything again to use a FloTech pump.
At least I bought this on-line from Home Depot so all I have to do is drag the dead pump back to a store and get my money back.
I suggest you buy the 2HP FloTech and not this pump.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sprinkler01 Great volume & pressure
I'm able to water my property very quickly due to the high volume of water this pump produces. Great pump for the money.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Joncito Strong and Quiet, easy to install
Well built and solid. Wiring was a breeze. plumbing connections were straight forward. Simple enough for a weekend warrior to install if replacing a faulty pump, may need additional help if building irrigation system from scratch. Instructions were more for an experienced person over a novice. Pump worked as expected from the start and the cast parts are quality.. Pleased with this purchase.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ezreider Good Pump - Some problems
Bought this pump to replace a 15 year old 2hp cast iron Wayne sprinkler pump which lost the motor due to flooding of the pump house. Wasn't able to remove the coupling between the old motor and pump so decided to replace the pump assembly with this newer version. First disappointment was that the assembly was poorly packaged with the blown in foam not supporting the underside of the motor but instead was located under the plastic rear access cover over the capacitor and electrical connections. Instructions say not to lift by this cover - which you couldn't since it was already broken into pieces. Had to epoxy pieces back into place. Shipping box was undamaged.
The mounting foot on the new design is in a different location, the pump housing is completely different with different locations for intake and discharge so installation was like starting a new install from scratch.
The instruction manual doesn't provide much help except to say that its configured for 220V only and that it needs to be primed before the pump will function. Once installed and replumbed, the unit ran fine with good volume and pressure for 10 to 12 heads with a minimal 2' lift from the lake. Pump is quiet but motor runs hot. Not sure how it will do with two pumps running in the same pump house and am concerned that in the warm weather it may trip out due to an over temperature condition. Sure look to get another 15 years from this pump.
