WARNINGS
1. This pump and motor unit should be installed by a qualified electrician or serviceman in accordance
with all applicable state and local codes and ordinances, and in accordance with the National
Electrical Code. Improper installation may create a mechanical or electrical hazard which could
cause damage to property and which could result in serious injury or death. Always follow the
schematic on the motor for all electrical connections!
2. In order to avoid serious injury or death, always disconnect power to the motor before servicing
the pump.
3. Always use the schematic on the motor for all electrical connections.
4. Never run the pump dry. You must fill the priming pot with water and secure the lid before starting
the motor.
5. Never start the pump when the motor shaft is turning. To prevent unwanted motor rotation, install
a swing type check valve.
6. If you are not competent to install the pump, get help from a qualified source.
7. Maintain a minimum flow rate of at least two gallons per minute.
8. Visually inspect the pump and motor at least once a month. If there is
any leakage from the shaft seal, replace it at once. The seal faces
wear (just like car tires) and must be replaced periodically. For critical
applications, replace the shaft seal yearly.

General
Installation
Proper installation of your Artesian2 pump will help insure years of trouble free service.
1. Position the pump as near to the water and as low as is practical. This will help reduce priming time, avoid
cavitation, and maximize your pumps performance.
2. Minimize friction losses by using large diameter pipe, reducing the length of runs, and minimizing the
number of elbows and fittings as much as possible.
3. Protect the motor from excessive heat. It is best to provide shade from direct sun, and insure that it has
proper ventilation. Excessive heat will shorten the life of the motor and void the warranty.
4. Protect the motor against dirt, water and all foreign matter. If the motor has been flooded, do not operate
it until it has been checked by an authorized motor technician and has been found to be safe to operate. If
the motor is damaged by dirt, moisture, or corrosion it voids the warranty.
5. Mount the motor to a stable base where it will not get submerged.
6. The pump ports are 2” slip fit on both the inlet and discharge ports. The fittings used to connect to the
housing should be plastic. All plumbing lines should be self supported and properly aligned. This will
prevent undue stress to the housing. We recommend using a good primer and PVC cement to glue your
pipe to the tailpieces.
7. Installations in which the discharge pipe is elevated above the pump must use a swing type check valve to
prevent back flow and possible reverse rotation.
8. BEFORE STARTING THE PUMP, YOU MUST FILL THE PRIMING POT WITH WATER.
Electrical
1. If you are not competent to wire an electric motor, hire someone who is!
2. Make sure the power is disconnected before wiring the motor.
3. Make sure that the motor is wired internally so that it matches the supply voltage. If they do not match it
will damage your motor and void the warranty (i.e., If you are connecting it to a 115V breaker, make sure
the motor connections match the 115V (low) wiring diagram found on your particular motor.) Always follow
the schematic on the motor for all electrical connections.
NOTE: Baldor motors have sepeate wiring schematics for low (115V) and high (230V) applications. Both
schematics are shown for dual voltage motors.
AO Smith motors use a switch to change between low (115V) and high (230V) on dual voltage
motors. This switch is located under the rear cover on the back of the motor. The wiring
schematic is the same for these motos since the switch determines the voltage selected.
4. Use a supply wire of adequate gauge to prevent electrical line losses. The use of properly sized wire will
allow the motor to run cooler and more efficiently, by eliminating excessive line voltage loss.
5. Make sure all connections are clean and tight. Properly ground the motor. (There is normally a green
ground terminal located inside the motor connection box.) Make sure the ground wire is properly
connected to an electrical service ground.
6. Connect the pump permanently to an adequately sized circuit. It is best to have a dedicated circuit that
will not suffer a voltage drop from other loads.
7. When using 3 phase power the motor leads must be energized in the correct sequence to provide the
correct motor rotation. When viewed from the shaft end, the motor must rotate counterclockwise.
Incorrect rotation will destroy the pump and void the warranty.
If you are unsure of the sequence of your incoming electrical supply lines, remove the volute (front
housing) and diffuser from the pump, then connect the power and check rotation. If rotation is
incorrect, exchange any two of the connected leads and retest. When the rotation is correct, reinstall the
diffuser and volute (front housing).
* Never test rotation by bumping a connected electrical switch. This will destroy the pump
and void the warranty!!!!

ARTESIAN2 PUMP PLACEMENT CHART
When determining the placement of your Artesian2 pump, two factors will be influenced by its height
above water level. First, is its ability to self-prime. To insure a reasonable prime time without the use
of a swing type check valve (do not use spring loaded check valves), position the pump no higher than
the height shown in the “maximum recommended suction lift” column. Second, is its ability to maintain
a prime and minimize cavitation. Even with a swing type check valve, we do not recommend a pump be
installed more than 9 feet above the water level.

Notes:
1. The data in this chart was compiled using 2” pipe, 10’ in length. If you use larger pipe or have longer
runs, it will increase the time required to prime.
2. All PerformancePro self-priming pumps have been tested to operate up to a height of 9’ above the
surface of the water. Do not install your pump higher than 9’.
3. If you use small pipe, more fittings, have longer runs, use strainers, or in any other way make it harder
for water to flow easily to the pump - it will reduce your maximum recommended height and may increase
the time to prime.

WIRING INSTRUCTIONS
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Please read all instructions completely before you
install or operate your new pump.
Save these instructions for future reference.
The motors used with the PerformancePro pumps are high quality, industrial duty motors. Some are dual
voltage motors, which can be operated at either 115 volt (low) or 230 volt (high). They have been tested at
the factory before being shipped.
It is vitally important to supply proper voltage and amperage to the motor. Set the internal connections on
your motor to match your supply line voltage. If these do not match, you will damage the motor and void the
warranty. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO WIRE THE MOTOR IF YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING!!!
Have a qualified electrician do the work.
The following example shows how to wire a typical Baldor 1/4HP, Single Phase, 1725 RPM motor
