Sorry for the inconvenience but the volute housing is not an available service part for this unit. I am sorry
Yes. The pump can deliver water to a single location. The pump is a high capacity, centrifugal pump which can be ap0plied in situations which demand large quantities of water. The volume to be delivered is dependent on the HP chosen and the distance from the source.
I haven't used it for such sizes, but the store technician told me it could handle that size, because I wanted the WLS200 which is two horse power with and inlet of 2 inches and an outlet of ne and one half inches. the manufacturer recommends that discharge and suction piping sizes be increased for distances over 50 feet, but I have been using one and one half inches delivery pipes with one inch pipes in ground to distribute the water without any difficulty, for over 4 years.
Looks like 6 gauge based on this calculator: http://www.paigewire.com/pumpWireCalc.aspx?AspxAutoDetectCookieSupport=1
The pumps re made to handle 30psi at varying volumes and distances. It is a centrifugal pump so it controls the suction, so the 55psi may pose some problem; the volume is also too low for the WLS75 which has the lowest volume of 500 gallons per minute . So, I would not recommend it. There are other pumps other than the sprinkler pump which can suite your purpose.
No: After pump installation is complete, the pump must be primed. Remove the pipe plug in the discharge piping and fill the pump and suction pipe with clean water. Turn power to pump on. If the pump does not pump water in 10 minutes, turn off the pump and refill with clean water.
I have been running mine for over three hours with 45 minutes per station for five stations, three days per week, for over 4 years. Timers usually goes up to 6 stations and the length of time per station has no impact on the equipment. The pump will overheat only if there is insufficient water.
The inlets range from one and one quarter inches to two inches.
A pump can not lift more than 33 ft. It has to do with air pressure. Standard air pressure is 33.8 ft. That is the maximum you can lift with a pump like this. To pump a well deeper than 33 ft you need a pump that is submerged at the bottom of the well and pushes the water up. Yours may be working somewhat now since the top of the water is around or above 33 ft. But a stronger pump won't help and if the water level falls below 33.8 ft it will stop pumping.
