Question about Flotec Corrosion Resistant Shallow Well Jet Pump 1/2HP, 8GPM
The pump should only run if you are using water. If you have a leak it will cycle on and off. If it only cycling fast when you're using water, you may need an expansion tank, sometimes referred to as a bladder tank for newer style. If you have a "bladder" tank , the bladder may be leaking and lost it's air charge. This bladder will have an initial air charge, and when the pump runs it will compress the bladder even further. When the pump shuts off the bladder is compressed. When you begin to use water, mainly low flow like one faucet, the bladder will begin to expand expelling the water from the tank until the pressure drops below that of the pump pressure switch. This makes the pump start and stop fewer times.

I have had 3 flotec's in 10 years. 1/2 and 3/4 hp. used as a booster at the house from the well. They all work for a while but eventually just start cycling constantly. Terrible, finicky pumps. I changed bladder tanks. really not the problem. Constantly adjust the pressure switch etc. I still have them all and the pump still works...just dont work properly in service! JUNK
