The maximum

In shallow webs (less than 20 feet deep), the vacuum created at the
pump is enough to pull water to the pump. Therefore,
for shallow
web use the jet is built into the pump.

in the Well
The Shallow Well Water System can be installed
on a dug well,
cased 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

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.

TROUBLESHOOTING
TROUBLE
Motor will not run
Motor runs hot and
overload kicks off
Motor runs but no
water is delivered
(*Note: Check
prime before looking for other
causes. Unscrew
priming plug and
see if there is water
in priming hole)
POSSIBLE
CAUSES
1. Disconnect switch is off
2. Fuse is blown
3. Starting switch is defective
4. Wires at motor are loose,
disconnected, or wired incorrectly
5. Motor is wired incorrectly
6. Pressure switch contacts are dirty
GUIDE
REMEDIES
1. Be sure switch is on
2. Replace fuse
3. Replace starting switch
4. Refer to instructions on wiring
5. Refer to instructions on wiring
6. Clean by sliding piece of plain paper between contacts
"1. Motor is wired incorrectly
2. Voltage is too low
3. Pump cycles too frequently
"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
3. Jet or impeller is plugged
4. Check valve or foot valve is stuck
in closed position
5. Pipes are frozen
1. Refer to instructions on widng
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:
a. Re-prime according to instructions
b. Check all connections on suction line and jet
c. Replace foot valve
2. In installation already in use:
a. Check all connections on suction line, jet and shaft seal
b. 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
deliver water to full
capacity (also check
point 3 immediately
above)
1. Water level in well is lower than
estimated
2. Steel piping (if used) is corroded or
limed, causing excess friction
3. Offset piping is too small in size
Pump pumps water
but does not shut off
1. Pressure switch is out of adjustment
or contacts are "frozen"
2. Faucets have been left open
3. Jet or impeller is clogged
4. Motor is wired incorrectly
5. Water level in well is lower than
estimated
1. A deep well jet pump may be needed (over 20 ft. to water
2. Replace with Plastic Pipe where possible, otherwise with
new steel pipe
3. Use larger offset piping
1. Adjust or replace pressure switch
2.
3.
4.
5.
Close faucets
Clean jet or impeller
Refer to instructions on wiring
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 30 pounds, pump air
into tank from outside source, until 30 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
3. Well is gaseous
4. Intermittent over-pumping of well
1. As soon as pump picks up prime, all air will be ejected
2. Check suction piping, make sure joints are not sucking air
3. Change installation as described in manual
4. Lower foot valve if possible, otherwise restrict discharge
