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.

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.

I have a Mastercraft1/2 HP self priming Shallow well jet water pump, the water fell below the intake in my well and I quickly noticed and turned off the pump. We had water delivered and I'm not su


If water is back up above the intake, it should prime itself in a few minutes. As long as you don't let the case get hot to the touch it should be okay to run dry.

If it fails to prime and pump up pressure, you may have to prime it.

Lasko pump motor in jetted tub comes on when switch is turned on but doesn't pump any water from jets. Unit has been used very little and is about 8 years old. Is there any such thing as priming these...


you can check to make sure there is water to the front of the pump. What they use on their tubs is called flooded suction pump i.e. there has to be enough water to the front of the pump end to **** it through and push it up and out of the wet end.
fill your tub up and loosen the discharge union on the top of the pump until water starts to come out, quickly tighten the union back down and then see if you can get the pump to start pushing water.

Pump problems?


Their can be a number of things.. Is the pump priming. Hopefully it did prime. what usually happens after running for awhile, with no cool water coming in. The water inside the pump basket starts to heat up, then the tubing turns to brownish on the input side of pump and exhaust side. (you could have air leaking in throught the input side, which could result in the pump never priming) Or if it is priming and no pressure (can mean your empellar is clogged up)

Whirlpool bath starts,but water doesn't jet


If that is what it needs and the pump impellor is actually working(turning) then filling the tube leading into the pump, until it take no more water, will prime the pump.
