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: some submersible pumps have a gray motor box to

The difference in the two pumps is that with a three wire pump the start and run capacitors are in the gray box. With a two wire pump the caps. are built into the motor. Because of this with a two wire pump you only need to run the 240v down the well to the pump. The yellow wire on the three wire pumps is the igh voltage wire that come from the start cap. I have used both pums but usually use the two wire because they are easier to hookup and the wire is cheaper because you only need to run three wires. (2 hots and ground) On large HP pumps you will always have three wire motors because the caps. get too big to get them in the motor. It is best to go three phase with big pump if you can.

I have a submersible Gould pump in a well. Recently air is getting into my system and coming out as irregular spurts. I replaced the water storage tank and the check valve, and the problem persists


Sounds like pump is not set deep enough and getting air. If the pump is as deep as it can go you may have to have to screen in the well changed or cleaned with acid pellets.

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.

We have a submersible sump pump and a check valve in the line and everytime it goes off we get this thumping noise. Could it be a bad check valve?


A check valve is simply a one way flap, or a ball that rolls forward to let water flow in one direction. My guess is if it's making noise, either the pump is not producing an even pressure or the line is not properly secured and is hitting inside a wall. Make sure the line has straps every 3 foot and at any bends.

Is it possible that my well is going dry? second submersible pump I've burned up 1/1/4 hp gould pump lasted less than one mouth


several things will affect the pump, has there been a lot less rain than normal or using a lot more water such as more showers and toilet flushing ? if no then something else is wrong. the pump should3 feet from bottom of the well and should have roughly 10 feet of water above. when pump was replaced did they put it low enough in the well? The capacitor and wiring are they in good shape and supplying enough power? if voltage is low such as bigger pump or long wire run, too small a wire the voltage can become to low and cause pump failure. suggest having wiring tested first (cheapest) if all fine from there need to check water level and pump depth setting.

I have a jacuzzi 1/2 hp submersible well pump. Does this need any regular maintainance to keep it happy.


No preventative maintenance is necessary. However, a happy pump always has water above it and should not pump sand. If the water level in the well is below the pump/motor they will overheat. If this is a problem your local pump company can install a module to protect your pump from this type of event.

Please rate this answer.

No water on submersible pump


I assume this is a new instalation or you just removed and reinstalled to pump. As you have power on the load side and we assume your wiring to the pump is correst, you need to open a valve on the output side of the pum and bleed the pump. They will become air bound, Leave the valve open until it flow freeley. That should do it

Good Luck
