MAJOR COMPONENTS
Tank and Air Volume
AND WHAT
Control
Adapter
The tank serves two functions:
1.
2.
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. 27229) set
to open at 75 PSI. between
the pump and the tank.
There should be no shutoff valves between the pump
and the relief valve. See Figures 11 and 12, Page 8, for
more information.
stallation and operation.
A Captive _
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 wit_ the motor shaft,
causing the water to fly-__md_y
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 pulls in
more water.
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.
The Vertical Multi-Stage
O/MS) 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.
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
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.
Jet
The jet is a nozzle/venturi
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.
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.
Pressure Regulator
Pressure
Flange
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.
It provides a reservoir of water. Some of this water
is drawn offwhenever
a house fixture 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
(AVLO to add air to the tank when needed. See the

Long runs and many fittings increase friction and reduce flow. Locate pump as close to well as possible:
use as few elbows and fittings as possible.
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.
Check locally for frost protection
requirements
(usually pipe must by 12" below frost line and
pump must be insulated).
Be sure all pipes and foot valve are clean and in
good shape.
IA CAUTION I Motor normally operates at high temperature and will be too hot to touch. It is protected
from
heat damage during operation by an automatic internal
cutoff switch. Before handling pump or motor, stop
motor and allow it to cool for 20 minutes.

the larger pipe is the suction pipe
and the smaller pipe is the drive pipe (very deep wells
may use suction and drive pipes of the same diameter).
Plastic pipe is ideal for double pipe installations.

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 lOB). 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
which may occur in the piping and foot valve as the
piping is assembled.

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: Your pump pressure switch is set for a 40-60
PSI range and requires a tank pre-charge
of 40 PSI for
proper operation (see Figure 13). See tank owner's air

Pressure should increase rapidly to 50 pounds per
square inch or more as ejector and pump prime. If
so, go to step 4, below.
.
If pressure does not build to 50 PSI, repeat steps a,
b, and c under Step No.1 two or three times to remove entrapped
air from the suction pipes.

b. Suction pipe has no leaks.
NOTICE: Air can leak in even where water won't leak
out. Make sure all joints are tight.
c. Control valve, check valve, or foot valve installed
and operating correctly.
{AWARNINGIRisk of explosion
and steam burns.
NEVER run pump with discharge
shut off, which
can boil water inside pump body. Steam in pump
may cause it to expkglr.,g__yone

NOTICE: Open water system faucets before priming
pump for the first time.
1.
If pressure does not build up after priming
several times, check the following:
a. Suction pipe in the water.
Water
Pump
10
d. Pump trying to lift water more than rated lift for
deep well ejector used (including compensation
for horizontal offset).
e. Be sure pump is not airlocked. In offset installations, pump suction port should be highest
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).
Once unit has primed
and pressure
stabilized,
slowly open (turn counterclockwiseFigure 16A,
regulator
valve until pressure
falters (pressure
gauge needle flutters; pump may become noisy - see
Figure 16B). At this point, close (turn clockwise)
regulator valve slightly until pressure stabilizes. This
setting provides maximum flow (Figure 16C).
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.
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.

OPERATION

I MAINTENANCE
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.
HELPFUL
How
HINTS
To Handle
Using the Compound
If the pump or system seems to be operating
inefficiently, the compound
gauge can sometimes
help determine the problem.
I MAINTENANCE
A Gaseous
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
will 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.
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 17). 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 well
must be vented to the outside of any enclosure.
Air
Control
In Flowing
Wells
Flowing wells or wells with little or no drawdown,
could create a special p__ti_ocitrol
in the operation of your standard tank system. In such cases, a
pre-charged
tank (which
needs no air control)
is
recommended.

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.
3. 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 them or hit them
with a hammer;
you could bend the shaft (see
Figure 23). When the keys are correctly installed,
the adapter will pass over the keys without interference.
.
.
Using the alignment marks made before disassembly, 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
dean. 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 25).

Slide the first impeller onto the shaft; follow it with
the impeller spacer. Twist the impeller on the shaft
to make sure that the shaft key is still in place and
the impeller is locked to the shaft (the shaft should
turn with the impeller).
Install a new volute gasket, lining up the bolt holes
with the bolt holes in the adapter. Make sure the
gasket is right side up so that the water passage
holes line up with the water passages
in the volutes.
MAINTENANCE
9.
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.
10. Make sure the second shaft key is in place and install the second impeller.
Twist the impeller
