SOURCE: my flojet pump runs but it pumps no water

Sounds to me like it just needs priming (or in other words) the air bled out of it.
Using the force of gravity, force water to run STRAIGHT DOWN from the 25 gal tank, through the gate valve & into the running pump.
While doing this, close the bypass valve slowly until it's about 3/4 of the way shut.
You should begin to hear the sound of the pump begin to deepen as the air escapes.
If you don't, then there may be an air leak somewhere along the hose line, typically at the filter, causing it not to prime.
Correct the air leak, then you'll probably have better luck.

I recommend not running an electric pump like a Flojet for very long when it's not primed. Doing this may overheat it & shorten its lifespan considerably.

We have a Flojet pump 4300-143 which is leaking water out of the slots of the bearing cover (no10 on the parts list). Would you know what is causing this and which parts we would need?


Sounds like the seal has gone bad.most hardware stores carry seal kits and some even install them for a fee.Replace the seal and that should solve your problem.
Hope this helps.

I have a 15 gallon Fimco trailer sprayer. Last


Bleach gives off corrosive vapors, so the internal parts of the pump may have corroded over time. Least expensive fix is to disassemble the pump, find and replace any corroded parts, but you'll be tinkering for a day and it may not be repairable anyway. More expensive but faster is to replace the pump - check the GPM rating and find it here for about $60 - $100. Good luck!

Pump won't turn on


You will need to confirm that you have 12 volt DC power to the pump
Start at the pump and work back to the switch and power source

Bit of information for you to remember 99.995% of all 12 volt failures are ground issues, make sure you have a solid ground first

Pull the side cover off the pump of there will be small shaft, turn the shaft it will free it up. You need to make sure that the pump is cleaned out after each use, you can get a cleaning material that you want to run through the hole system, relief valve, spray nozzle etc. it will lubicate everything up. If you did not clean it out it will seeze and you will needs to be freed, chemical will freeze the moto.
