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: i have a flotec water pump that sits on top of my

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.

SOURCE: I have a Jacuzzi Jet Pump Model 7C-S/B. Not Working

Check the breaker that supplies power to the unit. If it is in tripped position, check if the motor is grounded ( continuity between terminals and motor body), check for shorted windings (infinity resistance value between the winding phases), and finally check if the pump is stuck up due to debris or defective motor or pump bearings.

SOURCE: new 1/2 hp jet pump with tank not working

Your hose size is to small. Use a 2in black plastic line out to the lake. Inspect your foot valve, and
take your pump apart to see if you may have a pebble stuck in it, and remove the inner workings
and clean. Contaminates build up inside and need to be flushed out. Remember to replace the
gasket. Tighten all your hose clamps. Once your ready to start, spray shaving cream on your
fittings to see if your sucking air. I've been through it all and my pump works fine.

SOURCE: jet pump does not pump water

I had a similar problem and as a last resort took the pump apart and cleaned it and the jet. It's a very old pump but works ok now.

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.

Water pumps turns on but o No water comes out of


Sounds like the pump needs priming. There must be a plug on top of pump. Remove this and fill the pump with water to top. Replace cap an turn on. If keeps loosing prime, you either have a fauly nrv, non return valve not opening or you dont have one at all. Essential bit of kit.

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.

A malfunctioning antitheft system can turn off injectors causing just such a problem. Look for a light on the dash that says SECURITY or ANTITHEFT. If this light is present, go to this link for help.

2000 silverado wont start


one good way to check that the fuel pump is running to listen. take the gas cap of and put you ear the the fuel tank fill neck. have a freind turn the key from the off position to the on position, but do not start the crank the engine over. you should hear a huming or wizzing sound for a few short moments. if you hear that sound the pump is running and more thatn likely pumping fuel.

Well, Hate to say this to you but your Cummins 24v turbo diesel does not have glow plugs. The fuel temperature necessary for proper ignition is heated by an element inside your fuel filter housing.
