SOURCE: Gould Water pump Problem

sounds like cavitation in the pump due to the introduction of air. Check for leaks or cracks in the suction line so air isnt being induced into the pump.

SOURCE: gould 1/2hp submergible well pump cycles on and

My first thought was that of a water logged tank which causes short cycling, from your notes the tank is good (the tank may be partially water logged though) If the tank is ok and your getting short cycling (and the switch is good) I would guess your check valve down the well has failed. As the pump creates pressure then shuts off the water may be going right back down the well causing the pump to cycle again. This could also account for the poor water pressure as the check valve may be stuck slightly open allowing the system to loose pressure but only allowing a small amount of flow by when running. There could be a leak within the pumps drop-pipe and your loosing pressure through this leak. I expect you'll have to have the pump pulled.
I hope this may have helped,
Tom

SOURCE: Goulds pump model BGR75 won't reset. Any tips.

If the motor runs but keeps tripping the overload, the motor is bad or the motor is under a big load. Does it pump water? If not, check the impeller and see if there is anything wrong with it. If it does pump water and the motor trips overload, the only thing left to check is the overload. Check the motor's amp draw and if within specs, replace overload. If amps are too high, replace motor.

Goulds j5s pump discharging rusty water and green moss particles. how do i flush


If its discharging all the time, I would say its sucking up contaminated water but if only occasionally, that would suggest something is rusting / deteriorating in the system and it "grows" when the pump is not in use. I would have a close look at the source tank(s), the connecting pipework and as a last resort, disconnect the pump and have a look inside the pump chamber.

When H2O runs pump keeps cycling every 15 to 20 sec. H2O drops to 30psi and pump stays on until 60psi. Then a couple of seconds does again until H2O is shut off. Pump runs for around 30 seconds.


If you've got the water turned all the way on, it sounds like your setup is operating normal. If the pump where turning of and on say every 5 seconds or so I would say to check the air pressure in the water holding tank that it's at the correct pressure.

Why does my goulds pump j5s draw water to the pump but it won't pump out, what could be wrong and can it be repaired?


you will have to prime the pump after working on the lines. You can get just the pump section but I doubt that there is much wrong other than priming the pump

Our goulds pumps j5s is running very loud after we replaced our sewage ejection pump last week. Could these problems be connected?


Those pumps last a long time. I do not think the problems are connected. I am assuming you are pumping water up from the pump. The pump has a check valve in the discharge that may not be closing. Cleaning that should solve your problem. Be sure water will pass through the discharge line into the drain.

Gould j5s, pump not going above 15 - 20 psi, does this sound like it could be a priming issue or not since it is pumping some water?


how much pressure do you want with a 15 to 20 psi, really what are you pumping house water, you need more pressure to supply a home like a 60 psi with an exterol tank

Pump will not shut off


could be worn mechanical parts in the pump, or air in the pump. Make sure there is no air leaking into the suction/inlet side of pump.

I have a pump that will not pump higher that 40 psi. There seems to have plenty of water to the inlet, it is even gravity flow no suction needed. This pump is about 9 years old and recently during a flood...


The Goulds J5S pump is only rated for 40 psi. Is it possible that is the correct operating pressure? Did you get a higher reading in the past?

How do I remove the impeller from a J5S pump?


most pumps arent made to be rebuilt and should just be replaced , its not worth fixing something and have it just go bad again.
