I don't know about the warranty if it's six months old, but you might remind Jerry at the hardware store that we're discussing his customer service on the internet..

Submersible pumps are pretty simple, but you gotta pull the darn things out of the well every time you need to work on them and they're kinds specialized- if you do it yourself, count on spending a little money and learning quite a lot. And being dirty and surly at the end of the day, and no water to wash in..

It might be worth considering a different brand of pump, especially if Jerry won't warranty this one. I see these Flotec pumps at the farm store and all, and I believe they're just more Chinese junk. Sticking with a Meyer, Goulds, Flint & Walling might cost a few bucks more (and it might not too) but they'll last longer and the dealer is more likely to care about your problems down the road.

Let us know if you're going to pull this pump out yourself, I know a bit about it and there's probably quite a few others here who do too, I'm sure you can do it without too much trouble. Best of luck with it.

Motor pulses on full power wash

It sounds like you either have a clogged nozzle or one that is too small for your pump. At lower speeds the pump is pumping less gpm. So your unloader valve does not cycle. Then when you go to full power. The engine is running faster and pumping more gallons per minute. The nozzle is too small or clogged and so the bypass opens and closes ( surges) Try a new nozzle that is the right size for your machine.

A pump is operated for 6 hours daily to deliver 0.028flow of water to a tank 12m above the ground. calculate the amount of energy and power required

0.028 what? It takes much less energy and power to raise 0.028 teaspoons of water than to raise 0.028 acre-feet of water.

Asko 20.1 won't stop pumping unless I turn it off at the wall switch.

this happened to my D3111 and, sure enough, there was a split in the water outlet hose and the water overflow raised the polystyrene float block.
6 months later th same symptoms occurred but the inner base was dry. I took off the lower front panel under the door and found the water level (3 terminal) microswitch had burnt out, probably from running too long. Easy to replace if you can hunt down the $2 switch (brand name Zippy, 6 AMP)

Continuos pumping

Continuos pumping is associated with waterlogged
pressurized system. To correct it, do this steps.
1. Put the power line off.
2. Drain all the water inside the pressure tank by
taking off the plug at the bottom. Then replace and
close the drain plug.
3. Open the priming port plug and fill it full with water.
Replace the priming port plug.
4. Close the flow control valve to regulate water output
5. Put the power back on, and start the pump.
6, Slowly open the flow control valve until the water
stabilizes at 20 or 30 psi at the pressure gage..
7. Set the pressure switch to stop at 40 psi and
start at 20 or 30 psi.
This will solve your problem.

Will not pump when it has a filter in it

filters are too good for pump system.

These pool pumps seam to over heat fast, no quick fix.

* Try getting more air flow around pump.
* Only use pump when using pool or near by.
* Use a pool cover - will help stop dirt/rubbish getting into pool - less to filter.
