Question about Flotec 1/4 Horsepower Sink Pump System

1 Answer


My Flotec MOD # FPOS1800LTS-08 leaks from the rubber grommet on top. The 2 wires coming through the grommet when wiggled causes unit to work at times. The S-trap under the sink feeding into the pump also leaks. (I mentioned this only if it may be related but I don't think so).

It actually sounds like you really need an entire nw unit. I fear that this existing one, is beyond repair, you would have to remake the connections through the grommet, and the grommet too. I guess you could remove it and try and refurbish it. replace the wiring to the motor. reassemble and reinstall.

Flotec Model FP4012-D8 stopped pumping water. I took pump apart except for small impeller housing edge break I can see no reason for no suction?????

Hi jandh40...

You have an air leak somewhere in your piping, housing of the pump or maybe the mechanical seal and that is causing your pump not to pump.
Try to disconnect the piping and hook a water hose up to the pump and turn the pressure on, it should show you where the air leak is by spraying water out of the leak area.

My dog chewed the power cord off my FPOS1800A-08 submersible pump, From whom do I order a new cord.

After searching, a clear answer was found ... if the cord replacement exists, it costs a lot.
Flotec has a contact-us form that requires your personal information

That being said, flotec FPOS thermoplastic sump pumps have pdf parts list.
Parts list shows cord as replacement part.
However, I don't see the FPOS1800 listed

Flotec sell sheet shows FPOS1800 but does not show parts

Website below sells flotec parts
Random cordset price-check shows $46 for a cord
Another cord was $80
Another cord was unknown

I have a flotec fp512. It keeps loosing its prime in about 1 1/2 - 2 hours. after I shut the power off . its drawing from a creek about 20 feet away . there is a new foot valve at the end of the draw...

If the new foot valve is operting properly, then you must have a suction leak. If you can't find anything in the piping, then carefully re-inspect the check valve and where it attaches to the piping. If you still don't see anything, It is possible the pump seal is beginning to leak slightly when it's off, allowing air to enter the system. You could add another check valve near the pump, but it isn't necessary if all is working.

No more then 30 pounds of presure and wont shut off. Flotec water

If the pressure does not get pass 30 psi, then check for leaks along the pipelines and on the tank itself. An air leak on the top portion of the tank can cause the pressure not to trigger the pressure switch. Use soap bubbles to detect any air leak. Although a stuck pressure is not more likely the problem, check it also.
