Question about Goulds Pumps Goulds Pump JRS10 - JRS10 1Hp Shlw Well Jet Pump

1 Answer

Goulds pump must have overheated and expanded the pvc pipe which then sprung a leak. Replaced pipe, now pump runs continuously at 68 psi. Do we need to replace the pump?

There also is a slight dripping from another pipe before it reaches the pump.

Why is the hot water pipe dripping after tighening up.


First the is a hot and cold water pipe. To those are connected hot and cold water outlet bib valves to which are connected, respectively, hot and cold water hoses going to (or you could say, coming from) their respective connections to the washer. Correct this if I am wrong but, it appears you might be talking about those hose connections to the water spigots but calling them pipes, not hoses. If that is true, you contecture is correct: it is most typically a worn out hose washer or o-ring and replacing that item should correct any dripping. By sure the part is characterized for hot water.

pull the foot valve as it takes very little to allow the water to drain back out. Personally I would replace all pipes in the hole with heavy duty /high pressure plastic agricultural irrigation pipes

GroundFOS water pump won't stop running after replacing PVC pipes


you may have to blead air from the water lines. air pokets will not let your pump regulaet. as your pump feeds water into the filter and all your house hold pluming it must reach a set presher. if ther is air trapt in the sistem it can not build enouph back presher to force the pumps PSI regulaeter switch to ingaidge. air is lighter then water ther for thes to difrent forces pushing against one another couses a flucksuaition and can not regulaet. blead all lines from the pump to all outlets"fosets,spikets and filltering sistem. let pump run while going to all outlets one at a time opening and closeing "cold side first" them to releave the air from the lines. donot forget eny outside fosets this should solve the problem. thank you for leting me help you today .

My pump when reaches 40 psi clicks on and off contineously


check for a slow leak like a toilet valve. leaking tap in the garden or it may be the non-return valve in the unit is not sealing off and allowing the pressure to leak back into the pump so causing it to cycle. Mostly it will require a new unit to fix.

Hi Eglenni,

Here are the specs for your pump:

Thermoplastic Shallow Well Jet Pump 3/4 HP. This new revision of an "old hand" provides good pressure pumping from wells where the depth-to-water is 25' or less.

BODY CONSTRUCTION: Thermoplastic
HORSEPOWER: 3/4
MAXIMUM CAPACITY: 12 GPM
FLOW at 10' LIFT and 40 PSI: 9.7 GPM
MAX LIFT: 25'
MAXIMUM PRESSURE: 78 psi
PRESSURE SWITCH SETTING: 30/50
SUCTION PIPE SIZE: 1-1/4" NPT
DISCHARGE PIPE SIZE: 1" NPT
AMP DRAW (full load): 6.1 amps on 230v / 12.2 amps on 115v
VOLTAGE: 230v / 115v, 60 Hz
RECOMMENDED BREAKER: 15 amp on 230v / 20 amp on 115v
MAXIMUM WATER TEMPERATURE: 140 °F (60 °C)
=========================================
Note that this pump can be operated at 115 volts or 230 volts (A/C) It may have come wired for 230 volt use from the vendor.

Make sure the pump is piped correctly.


There should be a wiring diagram either on the pump or in the literature so you can check to see how the pump is wired.

MAKE SURE
you have the pump wired for 115 volt use in your case. Also make sure the wire size is #12 awg for the power wiring.
Make sure all connections are tight. If you have an amprobe (an instrument that measures electric current) you can check to see how many amps the pump is pulling when it runs.

You said your old pump was 1 HP. This Flotec pump is 3/4 horse so there could be some pump performance loss depending on the well depth and length of the piping runs.

Here's the link to the website for the pump. There are additional resources available on the website:

the inside unit should be mounted with a slight tilt to the outside - so the water can drain outside.
also - be sure your drain hole (in the unit) is not plugged - either with dirt/debris.

My Whisperflo pump has a leak in my PVC pipe from the filter to the pump. The leak is coming from the pipe on top of the pump. Please help.


The correct way to repair this is to repipe the line. If you can't do that, your local hardware may have an epoxy putty that will hold against water pressure. I would only recommend that if the leak is between two pieces of PVC piping. If the leak is where the pump meets the PVC, I would recommend repiping the discharge.
