Question about Simer Plumbing

Open Question

I have a Simer 3075SS-01 water pressure booster pump installed. It has worked fine for almost two years. Recently it started running much louder and harder. It has also started occasionally tripping the circuit breaker. It still increases the water pressure as before, but these things still concern me.. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: Pump trips breaker

If the seals are damaged, water will leak into motor section and cause GFI to trip and yet the pump will seem that it is running fine if plugged into a non-GFI receptacle

check to make sure your power has the right amp 15 to 20 amps. and then i would check the unloader and make sure its working, you may want to check your valves to make sure there not stuck.

SOURCE: Pump trips GFI when submerged

Check your power cable for any hole and damage, that might be the problem

if not
remove the 2 screw where the cable is connect on the pump, gently pull off the ruber from the cord and check if your 3 wire are wet ? and if any water can come out of the cable hole?
if yes you have to take most of the pump appart to make the stator and rotor get dry and also check for any black part on the stator, to make sure it not burn if you cant find any black spot on the part let it dry for a week and spray some air on the stator everyday and your problem will be fix,
At our big factory we use special oven to dry the part quicker

If you have no water that came out from the inside of the pump it has to be the power cable or your breaker the reason why the pump work fine when only the base is submerge is because the pump have less restriction (Water to push) so the engine work is very light compare when she is submerge and have to push so much water alll the way throught the hose.

I can help you if you need more info,

Thank you for posting your question here on

No, only a thermal overload. If the unit was hot and has had a chance to cool off it should start. If you have voltage to the motor and it will not even hum or buzz, you need a new motor. The short must have blown the winding open.

I have a Simer 2305 and the pump will run but does not when the water is low?

Pumps such as the Simer 2305 do not pump water totally down to ground level. They are designed so they do not suck up debris , sediment, etc, which can clog and ruin the pump. So if your pump leaves an inch or so of water, that is normal.

Pump should stop at 40psi and start at 20psi. pressure does not drop to 20psi but pump comes on immediately when running water. how can I adjust it so that pressure drops to 20psi before pump starts?

You are actually missing air. Your system is water bound. The temporary fix is turn the pump off, drain the tank and start it back up. There is a air volume regulator there that has probably failed.The water you pump has very little air dissolved in it however when it is in your pressure tank; it adsorbed some air from that eventually depleting the air from your tank.

Do I need a pressure tank with a Pentair Water 3/4Hp Pres Wtr System 3075Ss Utility Pumps?

Depends on your application. If you are using it to provide water to a residence or other on/off use, you need a pressure tank and a pressure switch to control it. If you are filling a open air tank, no pressure tank needed. If you are just pumping water out of a well and directly to an ditch type irrigation system no tank needed.

I have installed a Grundfos CH2050PT pressure booster system at my home (3 stories). The pumps is installed at ground level and is connected to the main water tank (source of water). The pressure is...

it could be the differential in pressure between the cold water from your booster pump and the hot water from your solar water heater . the cold water which feeds your solar heater is probably being reduced in pressure by a pressure reducing valve . so what you need is equal pressure on both your hot and cold water system you could install a pressure reducing valve on the pipe thart feeds your cold taps etc valve set at the same pressure as the one on the solar water heater that would give you a balanced hot and cold water system

My Simer 2300-03 has been great except that it overheats after awhile. Too little water??

Yes. I recently used a similar pump (Flotech 1/6 hp) running for about 24 hours - but it came with this warning "don't use continuously unless submerged in at least 4 inches of water". This is because it will easily overheat, as yours has been doing. Mine worked for pumping water out of my basement (not the speediest little pump), but only because there is a sump hole in the floor where the pump could remain submerged.

How best to install 3.5 atmosphere water pump to drive shower, bath, toilet and wash basin to two bathrooms, particularly connections to cold and hot water supplies?

Typically a water pump or booster pump would be placed on the main water feed (this assumes this line feeds not only the main cold line but the hot water system too. I work heavily with booster systems and would ask for futher information. Is this system runing off of a pressure switch such as starting a lower pressure and will shut down at a higher pressure or is it a constant pressure system where as the pump is expected to slow down or speed up to met demands? Either way the system will require a pressure tank, the first method of running will require a larger tank. With regadrs to connection this could be sweat in (with copper) or the use of mechanical connections. A proper "spring loaded" check valve would be required too.
I hope this may have helped,

Polaris booster pump runs for minute but quits. Tries to restart

The motors are usually dual voltage and factory connected for 230V. Are you sure it is properly wired and set for the correct incoming line voltage?

Pump spinning but not getting up to speed then shuts off

You have a pressurized system using a pressure tank.This is a case of an air logged pressure tank. Meaning there is more air than water in the pressure tank. The pressure tank must hold 2/3 water and 1/3 air of its total volume. Installed at the tank is the air volume control to take care of this proportion. Should the air volume control malfunction or becomes defective, the air-water ratio is affected. And then,
the pressure tank becomes either air logged or water
1. Shut the power off, and open the discharge line
gate valve to flush the water in the pipe lines.
2. Open the drain plug of the pressure tank to empty
all the water at the pressure tank.
3. Close the drain plug, and put the power on.
4. Start the pump, and set the flow control valve 1/4
5. The pump will normally run.
