SOURCE: motor running but not pumping any water, why?

You very well could have a bunch of Sediment on the Intake for the Water OR The water table has Drpped Below the Pump.

SOURCE: i have a flotec water pump that sits on top of my

if the pump is working correctly, it can either be, need more water to prime it, or something in the well, such as low water, plugged filter, etc....sometimes when you have a system that is intermittently used, it can take 20 or 30 minutes of continuous priming to get it to pull, enough water to maintain the prime.

Flotec Model FP4012-D8 stopped pumping water. I took pump apart except for small impeller housing edge break I can see no reason for no suction?????


Hi jandh40...

You have an air leak somewhere in your piping, housing of the pump or maybe the mechanical seal and that is causing your pump not to pump.
Try to disconnect the piping and hook a water hose up to the pump and turn the pressure on, it should show you where the air leak is by spraying water out of the leak area.
Please take time to rate me

Looking for shift sell for Flotec: FP5162


I've never heard of a shift sell for a flotec water pump. That is if you are looking for a part for a Flotec sprinkler pump. Maybe you're looking for a shaft seal.If you need parts or a manual you can look at www.flotecpumps.com The flotec part number for the mechanical seal and gasket kit is:5PP5000. You can search their web site for local suppliers, I'd call first to see if they'd have part in stock. Follow directions when installing. Do not use oil or grease to lube new seal. Liquid dishwashing soap is best.

Jet pump does not pump water


I had a similar problem and as a last resort took the pump apart and cleaned it and the jet. It's a very old pump but works ok now.
