I have a utilitech 1\2 hp pump I don't. Get good water pressure


Make sure that the pump is primed before running. There should be a spot you can dump water in to do this. You most likely have air in the system.

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.

Looking for a new motor for a utilitech pro 0313836 submersible pump


Most submersible pump motors are interchangeable.
A 230 V motor will run cheaper. Be sure to get the correct HP motor.

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.

I woke up to no water my pump kicks on and hums for 3 to 5 seconds and quits


It sounds like it is seized with the overload relay cycling it to save the motor. It needs to be dismantled, cleaned and possibly rebuilt. Check the price of a new one it may be cheaper.

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.

I have a Utilitech 1hp shallow well jet pump which turns off and on rapidly while using water. I have 25 psi in the air tank. I replaced the pressure switch and still have problems.


Good you got it working. Please post again if you have more trouble on this or another item. Also be sure and check what I mentioned just in case you are operating at the margins, don't want a failure right after you got it going!

How do you descale


Since you don't specify what type of machine you have, these directions are a bit general: Run a solution of white vinegar and water through the machine, turning it off 1/2 way through the cycle and let it sit for 20 min to 1 hr. Then turn it back on and let the rest of the solution brew through. Dump that, rinse off the carafe, brew basket or whatever parts are removeable, are run a brew cycle with just water Different makers will tell you different amounts of each to use, but I usually mix about 1/2 water and 1/2 vinegar, sometimes more vinegar. Don't use all vinegar, there's no reason to waste it, and less than 1/2 vinegar won't work very well. It depends on what kind of machine you''re descaling for the total amount of water/vinegar mix you would use... if it's a 4 c. Mr. Coffee, I do the whole pot. If it's a 12 cup coffee maker I use about 4or 5 cups of the mixture. Something like a Keurig is a bit more tedious - same general directions, but after rinsing the water holder, run clean water through the brewer several times before making coffee again.
