When the pump is making more pressure it is pulling less amps using less electricity. The
constant pressure valve does the same thing.When that well goes, you are looking at knocking in

You don't need a constant pressure valve with a shallow well jet pump. Just adjust the pressure
up a little so the pump doesn't cycle while your using water. I would still be looking to
replumb it to ...
Posted in thread: Flexible pipe offset causes leak on 08-28-2014 at 02:02 PM
I think you have answered your question. The angle is too great and the pipes just won't bend
in that short of a distance. You could re plumb it somehow to make things easier, or maybe go
to PVC at th...

The fact that galvanized tanks last forever isn't so true anymore. They have gone up in price

tank and s...

Like everyone else it has one year from date of sale or 1.5 years from build date. Yes it is
the SEI motor. It's a beast.

Everyone seems to think Goulds pumps are the best pump since sliced bread. I say they aren't
any better than any other name brand (Wayne, Flotec, Water Ace etc excluded) but they always
had an AO Smit...

The Betta Flo SW series is a very good pump and so is the new Goulds knockoff pump I'm selling.
The pump itself is exactly like the Goulds and all parts are interchangeable. The motor on that
pump is ...
