Troubleshooting
We suggest you take a few minutes
to read the instructions
contained in this manual before installing and using your pump. This
will help you obtain the full benefits of the quality and convenience
built into this equipment.
It will also help you avoid any needless
service expense
resulting
from causes beyond our control which
naturally cannot be covered
in our warranty.

Be sure the vertical distance (lift) from the priming
level to pump
is not over 20 feet, if the pump is over well. This will be less if
pump is offset from the well. Both figures are for sea level. The
maximum lift of any pump decreases
with the elevation above sea
level. This decrease
is at the rate of 1 foot per 1000 feet of elevation. For example,
the lift is 17 feet and your elevation is 3000 feet
above sea level. You would then be pumping
17 plus 3, or 20 feet.
