Question about Flotec Fp4332 1 Hp Convertible Jet Pump ()

Open Question

I have a Utilitech brand one-horse motor convertible jet pump. The pump is running, and I'm down 43 feet to the bottom of my well. From the top to the water level is 32 feet, and I have 11 feet of water. When it's not pumping, it sits at 20 PSI When it's pumping water, it sits at 11 PSI. But then just pumps for appr. 10 minutes, and then shuts off. I can wait awhile & pick the pipe up and down, and it starts pumping again. Then I shut the faucet off and it goes back up to 20 PSI. Then I turn it on & drops down to 11 PSI. I do not lose my prime, and I have no leaks. This is a brand new pump. \r\n I had a 1/2 horsepower pump for several years, and just replaced it with this one horsepower pump, and I can't get it to work right. When it's pumping water, it pumps at 11 PSI. I have my foot valve at 4 1/2 feet from the bottom.

SOURCE: Flotec Sprinkler Pump not priming

it might be that the pump is prewired at 230 volt and you are running a 115 power supply to it, if motor just humms and little water comes out this might be your fix

SOURCE: air in lines

SOUNDS LIKE A CRACKED SUCTION STUB OR LOOSE THREADED FITTING SUCKING IN AIR.

OR THE CHECK VALVE IS FAILING AND ALLOWING THE WATER TO LEAK BACK SLIGHTLY OR ALL THE WAY BACK. YOU CAN ALSO ADD A FOOT VALVE AT THE END OF THE PIPE.

LONG SHOT, BUT THE BLADDER TANK IS CHARGED WITH AIR AND MAY HAVE A HOLE IN THE BLADDER CAUSING THE TANK AIR TO ENTER THE SYSTEM. SHOULD RUN OUT QUICKLY THOUGH. HOPE THIS HELPS, JODY

SOURCE: sump pump won't stop running

Notting your statement that water is running in like someone turned on a faucett... Your sump pump is simply doling it's job. As the water rises it triggers the float switch / sensor and activates the pump. The pump has enough capacity to empty the catch basin to the point the float / sensor switch shut the unit off. The pump is thermally protected and will stop if there really is a problem. You home electrical circuit more than likely has either circuit breakers or fuses. From what I am reading none of those have tripped or blown. Once again the sump pump is simply working normally based out your description of the the amount of water coming in. Also not that if it did not run you would be faced with a flooding situation. Relax and enjoy your day :)

I have a utilitech jet pump and when I was running down a short and removed the 115/230 converter switch the wire came loose now I have no idea how to wire it back up


Look on the inside of the cover you removed. There is often a diagram on how to convert to and from 110v to 220v.

I just purchased a utlitech 1/2 hp convertible jet pump. When I turn it on it just hums.


I

The hum is the sound created by a motor when it cannot start either because the load is excessive and it cannot do the job or if the start capacitor is bogus.

If cap is good, motor should start immediately upon turn on. Measure cap with cap meter or simply replace it. The capacitance should be the amount indicated on the cap and not more than 10 percent less.

If capacitor is good the pump itself might be frozen. Try running the motor not connected to the pump.

I have a UtiliTech 1/2 HP Jet pump #0003124. I need a manual. Can I get a larger volume impeler for this mode?l


Put a vacuum gauge on the suction, see if it goes real low after pumping a couple of gallons. If so, your point may be stopped up. A 1/2 hp pump should pump 40/50 psi, fill a 5 gal bucket in a minute or so.

I have a utilitech 1 hr convertible jet pump. My well is 58 feet. My foot valve is at 68 feet. My pump is primed. But it still won't pump water. And it us set up for deep well. Any suggestions?


I think you mean your well is 68 feet and your foot valve is at 58 feet. To properly prime a deep well jet system you must completely fill not only the pump but the entire casing also. This should take about 5 gallons of water. If you are not using anywhere near that much water to prime it may be the well casing is air locked which means the air in the well has no place to go and won't allow water in if there is a plug on top of the well adapter remove it and then try to prime system. Another method is to run the pump while priming to help break the airlock. Hope this helps.
