Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The problem with reviewing this product is that it is supposed to last for a decade in my well (the last one lasted over 20 years).
I installed it and it works, I was pleasantly surprised that it came with a wire splice kit. The last pump I had, however, had the wire built into it (came with 200' of wire,) so no splicing was even needed.
Maybe in 10 years I'll write another review if I am still alive.
This pump seems to pump at a faster rate than the old one, although it is the same HP. The motor on this pump is Franklin Electric, the same as Goulds' motor I had before.
Note: Franklin Electric is willing to honor their warranty on this pump even when bought from Amazon. Flotec people told me their pumps if bought from Amazon have no warranty of any kind.
p.s. For some reason Amazon says in the description that it only pumps from depths up to 100', however, looking at the specs of this pump elsewhere and confirming with...
We bought this to replace a Franklin well pump two and a half months ago. Did the replacement myself and I've had no problems since.
NOTE: I bought the wrong pump.
This pump has two "hot" wires and a ground (two black, one green), my old pump had two "hot" wires and a negative (one red, one yellow, one black). The circuitry to control the pump is built into the motor so you do NOT need a control box. Having an existing control box, had to redo the existing wiring in my home to bypass the control box circuitry for the hots and and then connect the "negative" wire directly to ground. It worked like a champ.
Great pressure with a 100' drop. Popped the old pump off, bought a brass pipe attachment, threaded it on with thread sealer, used the included wire splice kit to create a waterproof electrical connection, then taped the wire to the pipe as it went back into the well.
I will be buying another one (or two!) of...
As others have mentioned, it's kind of hard to give this a good review without waiting for about 10 years. But for as much as it is worth, this has been running great for this last week (I'll try to update this review over the next few months/years). I installed this in a 120' well at 100'. Here was my setup: Red Lion RL12G05-2W2V > 1 1/4" threaded to 1" barbed adapter > 1" 100PSI poly pipe secured with 2 hose clamps > pitless adapter. We wired it up using the included submersible/waterproof splice kit and lowered it into the well. I was racing daylight (and losing) so I didn't even test the electrical or splice or pipe fittings. I figured I could pull it back out if I had to. But, once it was in place 100' down we turned on the breaker and the pump took off like a champ and has been working great since then. The instructions were clear enough and everything went pretty smooth (I would have liked a little more direction from the instructions on whether a...
