new pump started fine in the shop but will not start after inst. on the well...just hums
Asked by: mike
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.

Will a water heater work as a tank?

Asked by: Jimbo1231
No,an approved tank is a captive air tank, it has a bladder with an air charge in the top. For the system to function properly you need the tank with an air charge or your system will cycle off an on, as water is in compressible.

1/2 HP Cast Iron Shallow Well Jet Pump is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 89.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from PUMP LOOKED GOOD OUT OF THE BOX AND HAS RUN FOR ABOUT 3-4 WEEKS ONLY ON WEEK ENDS AT A COTTAGE. ... PUMP LOOKED GOOD OUT OF THE BOX AND HAS RUN FOR ABOUT 3-4 WEEKS ONLY ON WEEK ENDS AT A COTTAGE. HAD TO REMOVE IT THIS WEEK END JULY 3RD IT FAILED TO BUILD MORE THAN 25PSI. PUT THE OLD PUMP BACK IN WHICH I KEPT AS A BACK UP AND THINKG TOOK OFF AND CAME BACK UP TO THE 45PSI SETTING ON THE PRESSURE SWITCH. NOT SURE WHAT IS WRONG WITH IT BUT THE 12 YEAR OLD PUMP I PUT BACK IN TOO RIGHT OFF.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pump works but a couple of things to note: ... Pump works but a couple of things to note: First, the mounting bracket is weak. The pump wants to hang down and the mounting bracket is thin and doesn't provide adequate support. Second, the starting amps is high enough that I had to add my second Honda generator just to start the pump up. Didn't anticipate that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great inexpensive pump! Perfect pump for the shallow well owner. I had a 3/4 hp Berkeley shallow well pump that was 3 times as expensive and conked out after one year of moderate spring/summer use. Rather than pay the $450 it was going to take to repair the old pump, I found this one for only $150 and decided it was worth taking a chance. And I'm glad I did. It was easily interchangable with the Berkeley after attaching a simple electrical plug and has been working beautifully for the past month. I was also pleasantly surprised that this pump had a pressure switch built on (I don't think that feature was noted in the product description) as I was expecting to have to take the one off my old pump and add it to this one. I feel I made a great decision with this pump.

It seems to work correctly, was easy to install, and hopefully, with a little manufacturer-suggested annual maintenance on my part, will last for years. Time will tell.

Replaced a Craftsman 17 year old pump with the same specs. A little nosier than the old pump but that is most likely due to steel mounting plate opposed to the Craftsman’s plastic mounting plate. My pump house is detached from the main house so noise is not a issue. Installation was easy. The wiring diagram instructions does not match the pump but it was simple to wire. I ran the pressure tank hose to the primer inlet so there is no need to prime the pump when ever I drain the system. Over all I am pleased with the pump so far. One thing I suggest is to chase the threads of the pvc fittings into the cast iron before installing with Teflon tape. This way you will not have any leaks. Also install a check valve on the supply side. Before you look at buying a pump, make sure you check the warranty . Most pumps in this price range are assembled in the US and these days that means Chinese or elsewhere made parts. Other pumps are considered to be the best pump in its price range are assembled either in Canada or in the US and cost around $150.00 more.
