This pump works well if you don't have to draw. I pump from a ground level tank through a 2 inch line, 450 ft long. at the end of the line with good flow I get 45 pounds pressure. at the pump without pumping load the pressure is 90 pounds-not recommended except for short testing. The only problem is the turbine ring clamp nut is a the bottom. Before installing the pump you should loosen it and turn the nut to the top or the side-see photo--makes for easy cleaning later, if needed. oh yeah. . . the factory over-tightened the lower bleed bolt and broke the head off. The leak stopped by replacing the bolt.

Mine lasted 14 months, right after warranty. I am not the only one from reading the reviews. Therefore, I will not recommend this product.

I installed the 1.5 hp pump in 1998 and it is only now sounding kind of noisy. However, it pumps 30 gpm with no problem. I think I will buy another of the same model to replace my current one. Luckily, I installed unions on the suction and discharge lines so that I could easily replace the pump. Today I'm glad I thought of that 17 years ago!

Very happy with pump. Lasted 11 years, runs very quiet. Just replaced my sprinkler pump. Last one (same model) lasted 11 years! I live in South Florida where we're only permitted to water twice a week. My pump draws from the lake and has 4 zones. My pump runs 4 hours per week (30 minutes per zone, twice a week). In addition to being high humidity and hot Florida sun for 11 years, I estimate the pump ran at least 2,300 hours. I feel that I got my money's worth and would definitely recommend. I do use a snap on plastic cover -- and I would definitely recommend getting one as well. By the way... when I turned on the new pump after installing, I thought I must have done something wrong. It was so quiet, I didn't think there was any way it was primed and pumping water. The pump runs very quiet. The only improvement I could suggest is in the wiring diagram. The manual didn't show which terminal was for the hot and which one for the neutral, so I didn't think it mattered. However, after getting the pump together and ready to power up, I noticed the wiring diagram on the pump itself shows that which terminals the are for the black and white wires. Of course, I had them backwards, so I had to take it back apart and move the wires around.

THIS PUMP WORKS GREAT IN OUR CRAB SHEDDER SYSTEM. PROVIDES PLENTY OF PRESSURE TO AERATE THE WATER AND CAUSE TURBULENCE. I BOUGHT A SECOND ONE FOR A BACK UP. OUR SYSTEM RUNS 24-7 FROM MAY THRU OCTOBER AND IT HAS RAN NON STOP SINCE I PURCHASED IT ON APRIL 20. GREAT PUMP!

I purchased the pump to replace my old sprinkler pump. The old Flotech pump froze up after about 10 or more years so I bought an exact replacement. Buying a new one was cheaper than having bearings installed in the old one. I had to buy no parts, it fit exactly. I only had to prime it one time and it's running quietly. The volume and pressure are just right. I choose to purchase the plastic pumps because they are cheaper, lighter and much easier to carry at the end and beginning of summer than the cast iron pumps.

1.5 hp

This pump was to replace a 1hp pump that I accidentally burned up. I wanted to go with the 2hp pump but other reviews were better for the 1.5. I've installed a sprinkler system over 2 acres this summer and this pump is more than enough to power everything. One line has 9 sprinklers, 2 Voyager rotor heads and 7 small pop-ups. At 250' from the pump there is more than enough pressure at max 47psi with MAXIMUM CAPACITY: 67 GPM FLOW at 10' LIFT and 30 PSI: 45 GPM. When I tested one of my last lines with 5 heads, a nozzle popped out. With a Voyager II rotor head pumping out to 10' I still had full flow with the other 4 heads. I have reduced the 1-1/2 suction and discharge line down to 1" and still have more than enough to push out 24 gpm to about 40'. In summary, I'm glad I saved the money by purchasing the 1.5hp instead of the 2hp, I didn't feel the extra price was worth the minimal extra pressure. I would recommend this pump to anyone.

I install these when a client can't lay out twice the $$ for a cast iron Goulds/StaRite/Franklin pump. Great motor, just drain before freezing, and don't overtighten connections...you'll get years of service out of it. Will lift a good 20' and we typically see 40 gpm @40 psi on 2" driven shallow wells. Not bad at all for the pricepoint. Moving up to the 2HP doesn't get ya much more, maybe a few gallons/few psi.
