    This helped a lot! I'm guilty of grabbing smaller motors and pumps when people toss them. It's come to a head after 5-6 years having 57 of them. Starting to give them a go to see if they are repairable or parted.

    Were using deep well jet pump and pressure tank, the problem is that the pump pressure discharged overnight and we need to prime the pump every morning. Help please from the Philippines.

    Excellent video! I have a 3/4 hp Goulds water pump in my water softerner system and somehow my HVAC guy who was waking near my water softerner accidentally stepped onto the pvc pipe that leads to the pump inlet port hole. Because of it the motor over heated. Now I've noticed that the shaft does not rotate when I turned the power back on. Do I need to replace the whole motor? Could it be that something just got stuck in the impeller? Do you have parts for Goulds?

    I just disconnected a 6 month old wayne 240 V 1 hp well pump because it was unable to build enough pressure to trip the pressure switch off. i rigged something to test the max pressure output to the bladder tank and too my surprise got the same result. The suction line is now connected to a 10 gallon vinyl tank fitted with a 1/14 " steel barb via hose connection to the pump. When powering this thing up with the pressure output valve closed only get 52.5 lb max pressure? I connect it to the bladder tank and once the valve is open water moves freely through the suction line to the pressure side until that 52 pounds of pressure is reached? Note: bypassed the pressure switch in this test and that's as high as it will go load or no load? When it was part of the well plumbing it charged a 100 gal champion bladder tank to only 48 pounds. This forcing me to adjust the pressure switch or this pump would never shut off. Note: the sky should be the limit and this pump should hit a 90 psi easily for the suction line is not connected to the well. Therefore, it has no, lift, resistance. Yet, when this pressure is reached in the bladder tank the suction line can no longer move any water in the reserve, not another ounce? Yes, it basically goes to zero water movement on both ends? I'm indeed puzzled with this semi new pump. Got any ideas what could be causing this loss of head pressure?

    Excellent video. I learned a lot from it. I just got through doing a major repair on my Jacuzzi jet pump. Your video helped me out tremendously. Thank you very much.

    I have a 1/2hp Everbilt shallow well jet pump that I cannot get the volute off. I removed the four bolts and nothing else is holding it on. It only comes about 1/4" apart. I'm afraid I'll break it if I pry any harder. I'm already damaging the plastic housing.
    Any suggestions?

    What do you do for a living? Certainly not repair pumps like I do. ??

    Hi, great videos. I have a Red Jacket 3/4 hp shallow well pump. I recently lost all water pressure in the house. I discovered that the intake hose had somehow been disconnected from the pump and the pump was running continuously. I reconnected the intake and ran the pump. Everything seemed fine with water shooting out of the garden hose. However, the pressure reached 40psi and will not go any higher, it continues to run until it is unplugged. Does it sound like internal wear from sediment? If so, would it be worth repairing or should the entire pump be replaced? Also, the pressure regulator was replaced about 3 months ago, it looks good except for some white 'sediment' on two of the contacts. Is this normal? I figure it's not an issue because the pump is getting power. Any other suggestions?
