THEY
DO
Switch
Impeller turns with motor shaft, causing water to fly out
from its rim by centrifugal
force. Impeller rotation creates a
vacuum which pulls in more water. Part of the water is diverted back to the jet where it passes through the nozzle and
venturi. This creates more vacuum to draw in more water.
The pressure
switch
provides
for automatic
operation.
Pump starts when pressnre
drops to 40 pounds and stops
when pressure reaches 60 pounds.
In shallow wells (less than 20 feet deep), the vacuum created at the pump is_enough
to pull water to toe pump.
Therefore,
for shallow _-ell use the jet is built into the pump.
This pump is equipped
with a built-in check valve. Install a
check valve as close to well as possible
o_ well point installations. A foot valve must be installed in the well on dug
or cased wells. See Figures ZA and 2B, Page 4. For long horizontal pipe runs, install check valve as close to well as possible (all types of wells).
Pre-Charged
Check
Tank
The tank serves two functions,
it provides
a reservoir
of
water under pressure
and maintains
a cushion
of air pressure to prevent
pipe hammering
and possible
damage to
plumbing
components.
When water is drawn off through
the house fixtures, the pressure
in the tank is lowered and
the pump starts.

Valve or Foot Valve
INSTALLATION
INSTALLATION
For a pump at sea level mounted
directly over the well, be
sure the total lift from the pumping water level to the pump
does not exceed 20 feet. This will be less ff the pump is offset from the well.
Piping in the Well
The Shallow Well Water System can be installed on a dug
well, drilled well or with a driven point. In a dug or cased
well, a foot valve and strainer
should be installed for easy
priming. It should be installed five to ten feet below the lowest level to which the water will drop while the pump is operating
(pumping
water
level). To keep sediment
from
clogging the strainer, be sure it is five to ten feet above the
bottom
of the well. Before installing
the foot valve, make
sure that it works freely.
When using a foot valve, a priming
Figure l, are recommended.
tee and plug as shown
The maximum lift of any pump decreases at the rate of about
1" less lift for every 1,000 feet of elevation above sea level.
For example,
at Denver, Colorado (Elev. 5,000') the pump
loses five feet of lift. The maximum
depth from which it
would pump water would therefore
be 15 feet.

To Check Tank Air Charge
Tanks are pre-charged
with 40 PSI air pressure at the factory.
Your tank requires
an air ch.arge of 40 pounds per square
inch (PSI) for proper

tire gauge to determine
flair charge needs adjustment.

HELPFUL
How
to Handle
a Gaseous
HINTS
Well
In some areas well water contains gases which must be allowed to escape before the water is used. This can be done
as shown in Figure 9.
Gases
rise to
suflace
A good way of delivering gas-free water is to suspend a pipe,
closed at the bottom and open at the top, surrounding
the
suction pipe. Since the gases rise in the well casing, the
water sucked down through
the pipe and into the suction
pipe is free of gas, This type of wen must be vented to the
outside of any enclosure.

"1. Pump in a new installation did
not pick up prime through:
a. Improper priming
b. Air leaks
c. Leaking foot valve
*2. Pump has lost its prime through:
a. Air leaks
b. Water level below suction of pump
1, Refer to instructions on wiring
2. Check with power company. Install heavier wiring
if wire size is too small. See wiring instructions
3. See section below on too frequent cycling
1. In new installation:
5. Refer to instructions on wiring
6. Clean by sliding piece of plain paper between contacts
3. Pump cycles too frequently
(*Note: Check
prime before looking for other
z:auses. Unscrew
priming plug and
see if there is water
in priming hole)
3. Jet or impeller is plugged
4. Check valve or foot valve is stuck
in closed position
5. Pipes are frozen
1. Water level in well is lower than
estimated
2. Steel piping (if used) is corroded or

Check all connections on suction line, jet and shaft seal
Lower suction line into water and re-prime. If receding
water level in a shallow well operation exceeds
suction lift, a deep well pump is needed
3. Clean jet or impeller according to instructions
4. Replace check valve or foot valve
5. Thaw pipes. Bury pipes below frost line. Heat pit or
pump house
6. Raise foot valve and/or strainer above well bottom
6. Foot valve and/or strainer are
buried in sand or mud
Pump does not

Close faucets
Clean jet or impeller

Check possibility of using a deep well jet pump
Pump cycles too
frequently
1. Pipes leak
2. Faucets or valves are open
3. Foot valve leaks
4. Pressure switch is out of adjustment
5. Air charge too low in
Captive Air_ Tank
1. Check connections, replace pipe fittings
2. Close faucets or valves
3. Replace foot valve
4. Adjust or replace pressure switch
5. Disconnect electrical power and open faucets until all
pressure is relieved. Using automobile tire pressure
gauge, check air pressure in tank at the valve stem
located at top of tank. If less than 40 pounds, pump air
into tank from outside source, until 40 pounds pressure
is reached. Check air valve for leaks, using soapy
solution, and replace core if necessary
Air spurts from
faucets
1. Pump is picking up prime
2. Leak in suction side of pump

Leaks at the metal
clamp
1. Loose clamps or "O" ring
not sealed
1. First check the clamp tightening screw to see if it is tight.
If it is tight and slight leakage still occurs, place a piece
of wood on the periphery of the clamp and firmly tap the
wood with a hammer. Repeat this operation.around the
edge of the clamp and retighten the clamp screw. If leak
continues, disassemble clamp and pump halves and
check to see that "O" ring is propedy seated and no
foreign material is on "O" ring or "O" seat.
Reassemble pump.
[J_WARNING]
Release all pressure
in system before
working on clamp!

As soon as pump picks up prime, all air will be ejected
Check suction piping, make sure joints are not sucking air
