Question about Flotec Fp4332 1 Hp Convertible Jet Pump ()

Open Question

Utilitech 1-HP Convertible Jet Well Pump is not building any pressure.

We primed the pump continuously but not enough pressure to pull the water through. We changed the voltage to 115 on the pump because we were plugged into a 115volt outlet but still no water pressure.

SOURCE: Flotec Shallow Well Jet Pump won't pump water

The tank is an air tank, it works like a cushon and accumulator.

Have you reconnceted the pump? If not fill the pipe that goes to the well with water. It should not drain down, there should be a foot valve that prevents the water from running back into the well. So if the foot valve is working it should not take a lot of water to do this.

Pour water into the suction side of the pump until the pump is as full as you can get it, reconnect the pump and start it up. Yes it does need to be primed

Good luck

SOURCE: Flotec Sprinkler Pump not priming

it might be that the pump is prewired at 230 volt and you are running a 115 power supply to it, if motor just humms and little water comes out this might be your fix

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.

I have a UtiliTech 1/2 HP Jet pump #0003124. I need a manual. Can I get a larger volume impeler for this mode?l


Put a vacuum gauge on the suction, see if it goes real low after pumping a couple of gallons. If so, your point may be stopped up. A 1/2 hp pump should pump 40/50 psi, fill a 5 gal bucket in a minute or so.

I have a utilitech 1 hr convertible jet pump. My well is 58 feet. My foot valve is at 68 feet. My pump is primed. But it still won't pump water. And it us set up for deep well. Any suggestions?


I think you mean your well is 68 feet and your foot valve is at 58 feet. To properly prime a deep well jet system you must completely fill not only the pump but the entire casing also. This should take about 5 gallons of water. If you are not using anywhere near that much water to prime it may be the well casing is air locked which means the air in the well has no place to go and won't allow water in if there is a plug on top of the well adapter remove it and then try to prime system. Another method is to run the pump while priming to help break the airlock. Hope this helps.

Any suggestions when a newly installed utilitech pump won't turn off?


its sucking dry or your wiring is not right, or of course an airleak, or the prime is not good, did you fill the pump prime hole at the 3/4 plug on bottom.of pump, deep well pump do you mean submersible? if so and it is a deep well submersible there is a prime, its got to be an airleak in the line or the pressure tank is not pressured up to the specs, and the gauge

Why does my pump loose pressure


Sounds like your not using enough water, and or your pipes to sprinkler is to to small, causing pump to build up to cut off head. I cant lay my hands on a performance chart for your pump, but 60 psi cut off and 20 on sounds about right. Try running another tap when your sprinkler is running, and see if this keeps your pump running

Can the pressure switch on the Utilitech 1hp convertible shallow well pump be changed from 20/40 to 30/50?


Yes, if the plumbing can handle the extra pressure. There should be a nut in the middle of a large spring inside the pressure switch. Turn that nut clockwise to increase the pressure. You may need to run some water to keep the pump cycling while you do this.

How do I tell the pump to shut off when up to pressure?


The black cover on the side is the pressure switch. Open it you will see two screws with springs on them. Don't touch the short one. The tall one will adjust the pressure. Clockwise for more, counterclockwise for less. Cover should have diagram.

I don't think the power shortage had anything to do with the pump, I think it is the impeller or a gasket, or both. It is hard to say, a pump like that should **** dry and pull water right in.If you put your hand over the end of the pipe, it should make a mark like an octopus on your hand. I would take off the impeller, look for trouble, and replace 3 or 4 parts in there , you should have water. Hope this helps.
