Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a good pump This pump worked good for about a half a year and then it siezed. I got it to turn over after a lot of work but then it leaked. It was in a insulated heated area so was not exposed to freezing. When I took it apart I was very surprised to find all plastic components. Do not waste your money.

Are the outlet 1" or 3/4" ? Thanks!

Asked by: Jonathan
The outlet is 1” but reduces to 3/4” within 5 ft. The pump does a good job sucking water from the river 25ft below through a 140 ft length of 1 1/4” poly hose. It works satifactorily.

Will this pump work to pump from a lake, with a 100 foot line from lake to pump and a 20 foot rise?

Asked by: CBarn
Terrible answer from Home Depot who know most of their areas but have no idea about pumps for cottages. My 9 year old so called top line Myers 1/2 HP jet pump and saddle tank 20 feet into lake (line) about 5 ft depth with pump in a wooden shelter 30 feet from shore and then pumping up 50 ft height and 120 ft horizontal up to seasonal cottage just went on me when I turned circuit beaker on (to hold prime whenever we go back to GTA). The Myers from The Pump Shop (only pump professionals in Haliburton County- other than expensive plumbers I guess) has been serviced "open" and "winter close" for 9 of last 10 years since inheriting and now they can't guarantee service due to "staffing issues". So go to a pump specialty store like I will (for a lake cottage pump - 100 feet pump up to cottage- 1/2 hp or more) and hire a plumber for a one time installation and then you can open and close on your own easy peasy with -50 degree antifreeze from Home Depot for your cottage and drain hot water tank in fall etc. I will be shopping elsewhere to find a pump equal to the Jacuzzi that my parents purchased and lasted 30 plus years. Good luck and happy pump shopping but I wont be getting advice for a change from Home Depot. Its not their specialty.

Does this pump run 24hrs? Or it has a pressure switch that turns it on with water demand? If i add on seperate self priming water pump pressure switch does it still need priming? Or can accommodate it?

Asked by: Dalo
This model has a pressure switch that controls the start-stop cycle in conjunction with a pressure tank. It cannot work alone. Call our customer service desk at 1.800.361.1820 for a complete explanation on how to install this pump.

What causes the pump to turn on and off continuously?

Asked by: jlynk
In the instruction manual, we explain to install a ball valve on the discharge pipe. Using this ball valve, close the access to the piping distribution system of the house. You pump will stop to cycle. This validate that you have somewhere a leak that create a need for water which turns the pump on. Often, it is in the toilet tank where the leak happens .Remember that a table spoon of water is enough to kick the pump on. If it is not at the toilet tank, you need to find the leak and solve the issue.

How/where can a cycle stop valve be installed to this pump

Asked by: Bernice
This type of valve have to be installed at the pump discharge, after the ball valve describe in the instruction manual. Note that this will reduce the performance of the pump to the pressure set for the cycle stop valve.

Would this pump be suitable for a boost pump? We have a lot of lift from the well to the house. We are looking at putting an extra pump at the house for increased water pressure in the house. Thanks Brent

Asked by: brent
This pump is designed to be use as a shallow well application or as a booster application. See the video at http://www.burcam.com/en/videos?view=page . It shows booth application. However, keep in mind that it cannot push water that you do not have so make sure that the primary pump lift the water correctly to this booster pump.
