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.

My unit says prime and no outflow.


"Prime" usually indicates the pump is sucking air. Sometimes the valve in the bottom of the water reservoir gets stiff or gunked up; if you turn off the B60, remove the water container and drip some water into the water intake until it's full, turn the unit back on, replace the water reservoir and that little amount of extra water should be enough to allow the pump to work properly.

Pump will not prime.


Pump self primes after the housing is initially filled with water. Failure to do this will reslut in the unit not drawing up the water and could potentionaly damage the unit.

I fixed the same issue by pushing in the water knob "in" towards the machine. Machine than primes normally as the water flow is restored and it resets itself.

Hubby installed new pump and it shortcycled for awhile then, no psi... not even sure about the condition of the pressure tank ... when water does come it works for a short time and then trickles and stops...


Did he install a self-priming pump, sometimes the will not prime or this one is stopped up from dirt. also is it submersed in the water or above water level. if it is submersed and is not meant to be, it's probably toast and you need to replace it with a submersible type pump that is also self priming. To find the schematic for your system go to your manufacturer, I'm now assuming that this is a recreation type situation, trailer, motorhome. There at the dealer the parta department should be able to help you. Hope I helped.

10000 gal pump


as with any pool pump they have to prime themselves,, close up the unit as it was before,, and turn it on,, remember that water is also the cooling agent for these pumps, check to see that its pumping water as before,, ( yours may even have a place to prime it,, Look for an easy access prime hole in the pump unit itself )

Priming problem


Make sure you try to prime right when the machine is turned on, so that there is no boiler pressure making it more difficult to prime.
