MAJOR
COMPONENTS
AND
WHAT
THEY
DO
Tank and Air Volume Control
Adapter
The tank serves two functions:
The VMS pump is equipped
with an adapter flange.
This adapter facilitates installation
and removal of the
pump without disturbing piping. See Pages 6 and 7 for
more information.
1.
2.
It provides a reservoir of water. Some of this water
is drawn offwhencver
a house ftxture is opened (so
that the pump doesn't need to start every time you
open a tap).
It maintains a cushion of air under pressure.
A standard
tank requires an Air Volume Control
(AVC) to add air to the tank when needed. See the
instructions
included with the AVC for details of installation and operation.
A Captive Air* tank maintains a constant
precharge of
air in the tank and does not require an AVC. An annual
check on the tank pre-charge pressure is recommended.
Impeller
The pump's
impeller
rotates with the motor shaft,
causing the water to fly out from its rim by centrifugal
force. The rotation of the impeller, along with the motion of the water, creates a vacuum at the center of the
impeller
(the "eye" of the impeller)
which pulis in
more water.
The Vertical Multi-Stage
(VMS) pump has two impellers; the water feeds through
them one after the
other, with each impeller adding to the pressure. This
allows the VMS jet pump to pull water from greater
depths and at a higher pressure than a conventional
single stage jet pumps.
Pressure Relief Valve
Under certain conditions,
VMS pumps can generate
very high pressure. The pressure relief valve is installed
to make sure that the pressure in the system does not
exceed the pressure which the system can carry safely.
The pressure relief valve must be able to pass all the
water the pump can produce at the system's rated pressure. Install a relief valve (Sears Stock No. 2729) set to
open at 75 PSI. between the pump and the rank. There
should be no shutoff valves between the pump and the
relief valve. See Figures 11 and 12, Page 8, for more information.
Pump
Mounting
The pump base has three equally spaced 3/4" NPT
threaded
sockets. These will take threaded
pipe for
legs, to allow enough room to make piping connections under the pump.
In the case of a single pipe installation (see below), the
pump can be placed directly over the well, using the
offset nipple furnished with the casing adapter to connect the pump to the well head.
Piping
Jet
The jet is a nozzle/ventllri
arrangement
installed in the
well which drives water up to the pump from the well,
boosting the water pressure going into the impellers.
The jet allows water to be lifted from a greater depth
than would be possible with only the impeller eye's
vacuum. In order to drive the jet, part of the discharge
stream from the pump is diverted
back "down the
hole" to the jet to help lift water from the well into the
pump suction.

Pressure Switch
The pressure
switch automatically
starts the pump
when the pressure in the tank drops to 40 pounds per
square inch (PSI) and stops the pump when the tank
pressure reaches 60 PSI.
When installed on a 'double pipe' jet, one pipe is the
pressure or drive pipe; this pipe sends water down into
the well to the jet. The other pipe is the suction pipe;
this pipe carries water up to the pump suction from
the jet. Because of the pressure
requirements
and
depth of multi-stage
jet pump installations,
use the
chart below for pipe selection.
When installed on a singe pipe jet, the well casing
serves as the drive pipe, carrying water to the jet. The
drop pipe inside the well is the suction pipe, carrying
water up to the pump from the jet.
Use a 'single pipe' system for a 2" or 3" well; use a 'double pipe' system for a 4 _ or larger well. See Pages 6 and
7 for details. Follow instructions
packed with jet package to get proper nozzle and venturi combination
for
your pumping depth.
Use 1-1/4" pipe for both suction and drive pipes. A 1"
nipple, a 1-1/4"xl"
facing bushing, and a 1-1/4 _ coupling are included in the jet package. These must be
used with the jet. (See Figure 8, Page 6, for installation
details.)

and the smaller pipe is the drive pipe (very deep wells
may use suction and drive pipes of the same diameter).
Be sure well is clear of sand. Sand will plug the
pump and void the warranty.
Protect pump and all piping from freezing. Freezing
will split pipe, damage pump and void the warranty.

No air pockets in suction pipe.
Plastic pipe is ideal for double pipe instaUations. Due to
its light weight, it is easy to handle and does not usually
require a block and tackle for instaUation and removal.

Piping
The special adapter nipple is not used with steel piping.
To more safely lower steel piping into the well, build a
tripod out of 2x4 lumber. A couple of pipe clamps can
also be made of 2x4s secured
with 1/2" bolts (see
Figure 10B). Always install the coupling at the top end
of the pipe joint and install the pipe clamp below the
coupling. This will prevent accidentally
dropping
the
pipe into the well if the clamp slips. With steel pipe,
be sure all joints are clean and the ends reamed before
installing; use teflon tape or pipe joint compound
at
each joint to prevent leakage.
Use a lever hoist (a "come-along")
to lower pipe into
well (see Figure 10A). As each section of piping is lowered into the well, fill it with water. This will help
prime the system and also serves as a check on leaks

NOTICE: As a guide, the ejector should be set at least
10 to 20 feet below the lowest water level with pump
running, if possible, but always at least 5 feet above the
bottom of the well (see Figure 9, Page 7).
4. To properly
seat the cup seals, after the ejector is
correctly
positioned
move the assembly up and
down slightly. Water pressure in the casing will then
soak the cup seals (see Figure 9). They should seal
in 2-3 hours after installation.
5.
Installation
When a standard tank is used, an air volume control
(AVC) adds air to the tank when it is needed. See Figure
11 for typical standard
tank installation.
To connect
AVC to pump, thread a 1/8" compression
fitting into
tapped hole on the front of the pump. Cut tubing to
length to reach AVC; assemble to fitting on pump and
to AVC on tank. See installation
instructions
provided
with tank and AVC for details.
100' to 300'
Suct.
Tank
The Pressure Tank provides a reservoir of water under
pressure and maintains cushion of air pressure to prevent pipe hammering
and possible damage to plumbing components.
When water is drawn off through
house fixtures, the pressure in the tank is lowered and
the pressure switch starts the pump.
NOTICE: Fill pipe with water as each length is added
to be sure foot valve and connections
do not leak.
3.
When the pump is set away from the points of water
use, the discharge pipe size should be increased to
reduce pressure losses caused by friction.
• Up to 100 ff run: 1"
• 100 ft. to 300 ft run: 1-1/4"

When the pump is set more than 25' to one side of the
well, increase the horizontal
pipe size to reduce friction. Never use pipe smaller than the pump port size.

point in suction pipe; there should be no sags in
suction pipe (run it straight and at a slight angle
upward from well head to pump).

HELPFUL
Once unit has primed
and pressure
stabilized,
slowly open (turn counterclockwise
- Figure 19A,
regulator
valve until pressure
falters (pressure
gauge needle flutters; pump may become noisy- see
Figure 1913). At this point, close (turn clockwise)
regulator valve slightly until pressure stabilizes. This
setting provides maximum flow (Figure 19C).
Pump may draw well down far enough at this point
to lose its prime. If so, close regulator valve until
pressure is stable throughout pumping cycle. Close
faucets and allow pump to pressurize tank and shut
off.
How
HINTS
To Handle
/ MAINTENANCE
A Gaseous
Well
In some areas well water contains gases which must be
allowed to escape before the water is used. To deliver
gas-free water suspend a pipe, closed at the bottom and
open at the top, so that it surrounds
the suction pipe
inlet. (See Figure 20). Since the gases rise in the well
casing, the water sucked down through the pipe and
into the suction pump is free of gas. This type of weil
must be vented to the outside of any enclosure.
Air Control
Check system by alternately
opening and closing
faucets in the system. With faucets open, pressure
will drop until pump starts; with faucets closed,
pressure will build up until pump shuts off.
There are conditions
of deep well operation when
the regulator valve may be completely
open without any faltering of pressure. In this case, operate
pump with regulator valve open.
In Flowing Wells
Flowing wells or wells with little or no drawdown,
could create a special problem in air control in the operation of your standard tank system. In such cases, a
pre-charged
tank (which
needs no air control)
is
recommended.

MAINTENANCE
Using the Compound
Gauge
Pump Diassembly
If the pump or system seems to be operating
inefficiently, the compound
gauge can sometimes
help determine the problem.
A compound
gauge is a combination
vacuum and pressure gauge which will indicate (1) receding water level
in the well, (2) leakage in the suction line or in the
pump, or (3) clogged impeller.
To use, install the gauge in the air volume control (AVC)
port in the base of the pump. Open all shutoff valves
between pump and household
piping. Tighten regulator screw as far as possible. After running pump a few
minutes to eliminate all air from pipes, loosen regulator screw until compound
gauge shows 15" of vacuum.
This setting indicates that the pressure regulator is set
for delivery of the highest volume of water possible.
Let the pump run a few minutes; if the water level in
the well is falling, the vacuum
vdll increase. If necessary, reduce the regulator
setting to bring the vacuum
reading back to 15 ". If the pump does not develop 15"
of vacuum according the gauge, you may have air leaks
in the suction line or a clogged impeller.

15. With two screwdrivers
on opposite
sides of the
pump, carefully pry the pump adapter away from
the motor. This vdll pull the seal off of the motor
shaft. Use caution
to make sure that the ceramic
seal does not dig into the sbaft and scratch the
shaft's sealing surface.
Figure 23

Installation
The impellers are keyed to the shaft and do not unscrew. Insert two screw drivers on opposite sides
under the exposed impeller and pry the impeller
off (Figure 24) to remove it.
Of New
Seal
1.
Clean all gasket surfaces
thoroughly
before reassembly. Clean the seal bore cavity in the pump
adapter.
2.
Wet the rubber seat ring with soapy water and push
the stationary part of the seal into the seal bore cavity. Use a piece of 1" pipe pressing on a cardboard
washer (to prevent
damaging
seal surface) as a
press. Make sure that the seal half is fully seated
in the seal bore cavity Remove the cardboard once
the seal is in place.
Make sure that the shaft keys are in place on the
shaft. If they are not, squeeze them in place now
with slip joint pliers. Do not tap tbem or bit them
with a hammer;
you could bend the shaft (see
Figure 26). When the keys are correctly installed, the
adapter will pass over the keys without interference.

10. Carefully tap a small screwdriver
chisel in between
the intermediate
or thin bladed
volute and the
pump adapter in two or three places around the
pump to separate the castings (Figure 25). Do not
mar the sealing surfaces; do not break pieces out
of the adapter or volute - the castings are easily
damaged.

is rl_ht side up so that the waterpassage
holes line
up with the water passages
in the volutes. Install
the base volute, using the alignment
marks made
before disassembly.
Make sure that the pump discharge will correctly meet the the piping when the
pump is reinstalled.
12. Insert the four base capscrews
and tighten evenly
(see Figure 29). These should be easy to install ff everything
is correctly
aligned. If not, don't force
them," go hack over your work and find and correct the misalignment.

6.
Install the intermediate
volute, aligning it with the
mark made before disassembly.
Use the long cap
screws
to check this alignment.
It cannot
be
stressed too strongly that all bolt holes and water
passages
of all gaskets and volutes MUST line up
with each other, or the pump will not be assembled correctly.
Using the alignment marks made before disassembiT, line up the adapter with the motor and bolt the
adapter in place. Tighten the cap screws evenly.
Push the shaft seal and seal spring onto the shaft,
after making sure that the seal faces and shaft are
clean. Take care that the shaft shoulder does not
damage
the carbon
seal face. Follow the seal
spring with the spring holder; compress the spring
and give the spring holder a quarter turn to lock it
under the first shaft key (see Figure 28).
