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.

How do I prime my flotec 4022 pump


A number of Flotec pump manuals are available here: http://www.flotecpump.com/ResidentialResourcePage_resourcepage_ownersmanuals.aspx . The site lists a FP4022-10 pump with the direct link to the manual here: http://www.flotecpump.com/resources/images/514.pdf .

For this type of pump, there should be a priming plug or priming tee. Remove the plug (or tee) and pour water into the pump. Keep adding water until the pump and all of the piping to the well is full of water. If a priming plug or tee was also added on the suction side of the pump, open that section and fill all of the piping on the suction side with water. Replace the plugs/tees then open a faucet in the house. Start the pump. After 2-3 minutes, turn off the pump if no water has come through the unit. Add more water through the priming plug or tee (or multiple plugs and tees). Then repeat closing the priming ports and start the pump after opening a faucet. Once the pump is actually pumping water, turn off the open faucet. Wait for the pump to shut off once it reaches full pressure. Open one or two faucets to check that the pump is properly sensing the pressure changes and maintaining system water pressure.

If the unit didn't pull water from the well, check the piping for air leaks. See the full trouble-shooting guide in the manual. Page 9 has the priming information and page 10 has the trouble-shooting guide.

I hope this helps.

Pump will not build enough pressure to shut off. New Bladder Tank set at 38 PSI. New switch set to cut on at 40-42 Psi. New Foot Valve, New Tank, New Pump. Blew line to well water a few days ago. Pump


check the water level in the well as it may be too deep for the pump to lift the water and maintain the pressure. Are you using a straight pump or an injection pump that helps lift the water to the pump. remember that centrifugal pumps only supply a vacuum in the suction line and atmospheric pressure on the water does the rest. when the weight of the water is equal to the pressure of the air the pump will not lift any more

Shoots drips


Most airless spray guns spit a bit when you pull or release the trigger because the paint between the spray tip and the paint valve is under pressure but not enough to atomise the paint. If you increase the pressure you may reduce the spit to a point when you don't notice it. A blocked filter could slow the paint getting through to the tip cause lower pressure.

You can't prime the pump with the same water source you are trying to build pressure in. Shut off all the water going to the house, use the neighbors hose or have several gallons (maybe 5) to prime the pump and continue priming pump until it starts to build head pressure then plug prime hole.

How do you adjust the water pressure on a flotec fp4012-10 water pump?


You can not adjust the 'water pressure' the pump delivers but you can regulate the flow by installing a valve on the pump discharge and then partially closing it to reduce flow and increase pressure.

My pool pump won't prime


If the pump is above the pool water level the it is unlikly that the tank will fill completely with valves open (which is ok).Most pumps are self priming and will pick up a prime with water level below suction inlet on strainer. Try starting on main drain again and slowly open skimmer line. Did you remove water from skimmer line and winterize(if in cold weather climate)during closing?.I know this sounds stupid, but make sure water level in pool is well into skimmer. If air situation remains after scspriggs' and these thoughts then prepare for a pressure test on skimmer line to determine location of leakage.
