Answer This Question

A:  No. There is too much pressure. Their isn't a way to adjust the pressure down.

    A:  Hi there, No, this pump is not rated for potable water. There are a lot of folks that have a filter after the pump for this. Thanks

      Answer This Question

      A:  The thermal overload switch will chut the pump off if it starts to over heat and once it cools, if still powered will start up again. This type of cycling is bad for the motor

        Answer This Question

        A:  Hi there, We would not recommend this as the R/O system will cause the water to draw minerals from the cast iron pump to rebalance Thanks

          A:  You probably shouldn't. We used it to flush hot water tanks.

            A:  Hi there, This pump is designed for clear water only. Solids will damage the impeller and can clogg the pump. Thanks

            by|Aug 8, 2022

              A:  I use mine to pump untreated lake water I draw through the city system. Some times is is pretty cloudy. A couple of times I had to back flush the pump when the water was very turbid. I woulf dudprct large soluds would be a problem. You could filter the water using a sock of linen material.

                I used the "Superior" 1/2hp pump to draw water from a river near our cabin to fill toilets after our well pump went out in early December. The pump was able to draw water ten feet up the bank of the creek through a 50 foot 3/8" diameter stainless steel garden hose into the 1/2hp pump and then out through a 5/8" diameter 25 foot garden hose where we filled 9 five gallon buckets for flushing toilets in about 20 minutes. We also used a "Superior " 1/10hp transfer pump to move water from a 5 gallon bucket to the tank of our new "Glacier Bay" 1.28 GPF toilet. All pumps, hoses, and the toilet were purchased online or in-store. The delivery times were shorter then estimated! The best features of all the products is they performed exactly as I had hoped they would. Thank you Home Depot for saving our family Christmas reunion!

                Pump did a good job while it worked. While pumping water from a swimming pool I checked that it was pumping OK then left it alone for about 1/2 hour. During that time the pump lost its prime and "fried" itself. It was only pumping the water vertically about 6 to 8 feet, so no idea why it lost prime

                broke after 3 uses
                Used to pump water from an IBC tank to a hose to water garden. The third time started making lots of loud noises and just shut off and quit. Checked the prime full of water yet it just shut off and quit working. Returned!

                    I would like to leave at five stars and it's getting there :-)
                    I was testing certain pumps for power to be able to drain a rain barrel every so often once it's filled to deliver across a 50 ft hose with an attached head sprayer. I tried things of less than half a horsepower like 1/10 or something like that and they were good for purpose but not for pressure. after having experimented with a couple of rentals and some devices of friends I decided to move ahead with the reviews of the very solid corded Superior pump in half horsepower configuration. it's got ample cord length solid frame straightforward instructions and awesome solid brass fitting adapters. I have a good feeling that by following the instructions of filling first running clean water and taking proper lubrication care and cleaning this thing will last for a while very solid I feel very confident. it's only been six uses so let's just see what happens over time. sit and finish look awesome with the glossy paint and cable management is kind of built into the design along with a very sturdy handle and feet pegs. comfortable disc rocker switch that sits well away and can stand or tolerate a little bit of moisture is also thoughtful. the casing is extremely thick very sturdy a lot of that is demonstrated. it is not overly loud and it does a good job of draining a 55 gallon rain barrel within easily 20 minutes tops

                      It leaked from the time I started using it and now it won't stop leaking or pumping.
