Install a foot valve (check valve) at the end of the suction line so that you don't have to prime it again. Install a level controller so that it will automatically switch on and off according to your predetermined high and low water levels.

Shallow water pump keeps stopping


new pump --not big enough for the job
old pump --motor windings problem, faulty start run capacitor
I suspect that as the motor is 1/2 hp if will run good when there is a need for water but under pressure the pressure switch is set to high so the motor overloads and gets hot

1/2 hp shall well pump. set at 30/50....seems to hesitate around 48 for an extra amount of time....have to shake the hose or tap the pressure plate to get pump to cycle off. also....noticed the pump...


50 PSI for a 1/2 HP pump is approaching the upper limit for that pump. Many things can affect the upper limit. How far the pump has to pull water up the well pipe, is there any air leak what so ever on the input. If the pump lost its prime because it could not attain the 50PSI, I would suspect it may be just outside the limits of the pump at this point in time. If this pump is on a shallow well, it may be that the shallow well point is beginning to plug and not allowing as much water in which would cause a harder pull for the pump. I would turn the high pressure side down to maybe 45 and see if it operates properly at that pressure.

I hope this helps.

Pump stopped working while pumping


Yes, most motors are thermally protected. It is usually bi-metallic, and resets itself.

Pump 30/50lbs pumps up to 50 shuts off pressure drops to 32lbs


Look for a place in the pipe from the pump to the house where an air pocket could form. That will fool the pump.

Ive got a shallow jet pump model sd510 it runs all the time and it pumps the water from our holding tank to sump pit it runs about 250-300 gallons through to the sump pit ive replaced the pressure switch...


Just curious, why do yo9ur run water from a tank to a pit?

Where is the pressure switch located? At the pump I presume? What will increase the pressure? If you are pumping to an open pit, you will never build up any pressure? What is supposed to restrict the pump to create pressure?

You need a restriction to create pressure to turn off the pump. Is there a float valve like in your toilet in the pit? If not this would be required

Good Luck
