    That's a new one: Double Nose Jet Pump. You learn something every day. NO it's a single stage.
    Two or three stage pumps look like this:

    The question is: how many impellers did that old F&W have?

    I will keep the pump if the pipes and lower stuff is working. Do you have a picture of the old
    pump not disassembled or the whole pumps parts so we can see what it is? By the looks of what
    I've seen i...

    I would be embarrassed to post pics of this place anywhere. It's a mess.As far as the records
    go: In Michigan it's the State and local health department. In Florida they can't seem to
    figure out who w...

    speedbump, I would probably keep a control box even if it turned out to be another issue
    because you never know when the control box might go out-- but then, I am a hoarder so I also
    keep screws, bolt...

    Hey, if they tell you to, why not?We had to put up a sign years ago that there was no return on
    electrical/electronic items. Peoples pumps would quit, so they would come in, buy a brand new
    control bo...

    I think the idea stinks. For one, a single stage pump like you would get there probably
    wouldn't make enough backpressure to make the jet work.The other reason is that I hate it when
    people go buy any...

    We will be looking for updates and free samples.Do remember that if someone turns off the water
    but not the pump, it will nuke in about 10 minutes or so. I can't tell you the exact time it
    takes for o...

    The only downside to a one horse that I can think of would be the electrical wiring feeding the
    pump. It may have been sized for the old 1/2 hp, so if you put a 1 hp on, it could cause
    problems.If you...

    Big box stores tend to over rate their pump motors. A half horse motor made by a good company
    and sold by Well Drillers and Pump Guys would actually be more than a 1/2 hp. The Utilitech on
    the other h...
