GENERAL SAFETY
INTRODUCTION
You have purchased one of the most user friendly
pumps available. The Turf Boss pumps are made with
high quality materials which are designed to provide
you with years of reliable service. Lawn sprinklers are
designed to maximize output flow, while still maintaining
the ability to draw water from a source up to 25 feet
below the pump. All mechanical parts, motor, impeller,
electrical controls, etc., are above ground within easy
reach. If service is ever necessary, simple hand tools will
do the job. This lawn sprinkler pump installs easily and
quickly without the need for special tools or pump rigs.
You can install it yourself provided you follow closely the
instructions contained in this manual.
INSPECT YOUR SHIPMENT
All Turf Boss lawn sprinkler pumps are carefully tested,
inspected, and packaged to insure their arrival in
perfect condition. When the pump is received, examine
it closely to make sure there is no damage or broken
parts that may have occurred in shipping. If damage
is evident, report this immediately to your shipping
carrier and dealer. This shipping carrier assumes full
responsibility for the shipment’s safe arrival. Any claim
for damage to the shipment, either visible or concealed,
must be made through the shipping carrier first.
PRE-INSTALLATION CHECK
• Pump must not be more than 25 feet above the surface of the water.
• Use as few elbows and fittings as possible to reduce friction and maximize flow.
• Be sure pipe, fittings, and foot valve are clean and free of debris.
• Do not allow pump or any system component to
freeze. To do so will void the warranty.
• There should be no air pockets or leaks in the suction pipe.
• This pump has been evaluated for pumping
water only. Pumping liquids other than water may
void warranty.
• Teflon tape should be used to seal threaded pipe connections.
• Periodically inspect pump and system components.
3
INSTALLATION Tips
• Wrap all threaded male pipe ends and fittings with
teflon tape. This will ensure a good seal around all
pipe connections.
• PVC Pipe Connections: Use PVC pipe primer on
all glue joints before applying PVC cement. After
applying PVC cement to both surfaces to be
glued, connect pipe and fitting, turn pipe onequarter turn and hold for 30 seconds. This will
ensure a positive cementing of all joints.
INSTALLATION
LOCATION OF PUMP
Decide on an area for the pump installation that
is suitable based on the enclosure rating of the
electric pump motor. All Turf Boss pumps are UL778
approved and will be marked “ACCEPTABLE FOR
OUTDOOR or INDOOR USE.”
• INDOOR PUMP INSTALLATION OPTION:
Choose a clean, well-ventilated, weatherproof location
that affords protection from freezing, flooding, and
excessive heat. In addition, it should provide access
for servicing and allow convenient draining of the
pump and service pipes. A prepared foundation is not
essential, provided the surface is hard and level. It
can be located in the basement or utility room of your
house, at the well or between the point of use and
the well.
• OUTDOOR PUMP INSTALLATION OPTION:
When installing outside of the house, the pump should
be protected by a pump house with auxiliary heat to
prevent possible freezing.
Choose a clean location best suited for the water
system. A prepared foundation is not essential,
provided the surface is hard and level. It should provide
access for servicing and allow convenient draining of
the pump and service pipes. When installing outside
of the house, the pump and piping system must
be drained completely of water to prevent possible
freezing when weather dictates.
Decide how to seal the well from surface contamination
as required by local authorities. The most common
device for this purpose is the SANITARY WELL SEAL.
If the pipes from the well have to be kept below the
4
frost line, either bury the wellhead or use a PITLESS
ADAPTER that leaves the wellhead exposed for
servicing while providing sealed openings in the well
casing below the frost line.
Following are three well and water source
applications for the Turf Boss sprinkler pump.
Wells may differ slightly but the application is
essentially the same.
Single Shallow Well (Figure 1)
The single shallow well is typically a drilled well with
a 4" or 6" steel or plastic casing running vertically
into the ground. The surface of the water should not
exceed 25 feet in depth.
Connect the foot valve to the first length of
suction pipe and lower into well. Add pipe sections
as needed, securing them using one of the sealing
methods previously mentioned. The foot valve should
be AT LEAST five feet below the surface of the water
to allow for water draw down.
Seal the top of the 4" or 6" well casing with a well
seal to prevent debris from falling into the well.

Multi-shallow Well Points (Figure 2)
The multi-point shallow well configuration consists of
two or more wells as a water supply. The wells should
be at least five feet apart. The wells may be spaced
as a straight line (two or more wells), a triangle (three
wells), or a square (four wells).
Install a check valve or a fine screen well point
on each well to ensure the pump maintains prime.

system increases:
1.) As the flow rate increases
2.) As the piping size decreases
Consult included Turf Boss performance tables
(Appendix III) and friction loss tables (Appendix IV)
to determine the amount of head lost for a given
application. Pipes from the well to the pump should
slope upward (about 1” of rise for every 30” of run).
DISCHARGE PIPE SIZES FOR INSTALLATION
When the pump is located at a distance from points
of water use, it is necessary to increase the discharge
pipe size in order to reduce friction loss. The friction
loss in a system increases:

A. Suction Port Connection (Figure 4)
Step 1:
Attach the foot valve or well point to pipe
assembly and lower pipe and foot valve until it is
at least five feet below the water level. If you are
using a well, temporarily clamp the pipe to the
well casing to prevent the pipe from sliding into
the well. If well is in a 4" or 6" casing, use a well
seal at the surface. Never use a suction pipe size
smaller than the size of the suction port on the
pump.
Step 2:
Figure 3
PLUMBING
Bolt the pump to a level, solid foundation, if possible.
Position the pump with the suction port facing the
water source pipe(s). Avoid 90º angles whenever
possible and minimize turns when connecting pump
to your water source. Install the pump as close to the
water source as possible. This will help reduce friction
and maximize water pressure.
Connect the necessary elbows, fittings, check
valves, and pipe from the water to the pump
suction port on front of pump. When using PVC,
pre-assemble pipe and fittings to the pump
BEFORE applying PVC cement to ensure proper
cuts and inventory. Use teflon tape on all male
threads, wrapping clockwise (when facing pipe) 1
to 2 layers thick. Tighten all threaded pipe fittings
until snug. DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN PIPE AND
FITTINGS!! Tighten joints hand tight plus 1/2 turn
with pipe wrench.
HORIZONTAL OFFSET SUCTION PIPING
When the pump is offset from the well, the horizontal
offset suction piping may have to be increased in

Step 2:
1-1/2" SUCTION PORT
Connect pipe between the sprinkler manifold and
the pump discharge. Discharge pipe size should
increase with long pipe runs. Discharge pipe size
may equal discharge port size for distances up to
100'. Increase discharge pipe size by one size for
distances of 100' to 300'. For 300' to 600', increase
pipe size by two sizes. This will reduce pressure
loss caused by friction.

NOTE: To change the motor voltage (Figure 6)
unplug the dual voltage connector on the motor and
reconnect it in the position required to match the
available electrical system. The motor can be set for
115 volts or 230 volts, except for 2 hp models which
are 230 volts only. The voltage setting of the motor
can be determined by looking at the alignment of
the arrow on the plug and the arrow on the motor
terminal board (located under the motor’s end cover).
Any questions as to which voltage setting is required
for proper motor and pump operation in your system
should be directed to an electrical professional. The
factory preset is 230 volts.

Step 2:
Step 1:
Remove motor access cover at back of motor.
Step 2:
Feed the grounding wire (green or bare copper)
through the electrical conduit port in the side of the
motor. First connect the ground wire then connect
the power supply wires. Attach the grounding wire
to the motor ground screw (green). Secure wires to
prevent electrical shorts.
Step 3:
Connect the incoming power supply wires to the
motor terminal.
Step 4:

NOTE: Single phase motors rotate counterclockwise
only (when facing suction port) and cannot
be reversed.
MOTOR
NOTICE: A motor operating under normal
conditions maintains its rated performance,
assuming a clean, dry motor with proper ventilation.
A dirty motor, or one “protected” by a burlap or
plastic bag, will overheat.
Open discharge valves and any hoses on
discharge side of pump.
Step 3:
Fill pump with water through the priming port on
top of pump. Allow trapped air to escape for a few
minutes, then add more water until full.
Step 4:
Replace priming port plug and tighten with
wrench, using teflon tape on pipe threads.
Step 5:
Start the pump. A properly primed pump should
discharge water without air at a consistent
pressure. If the pump does not produce water
after five minutes, stop the pump, release all
pressure, remove priming port plug, add more
water, replace plug, and try again. (Make sure that
a foot valve is properly installed on the suction
pipe. See "Suction port connection". Figure 4)

B. Pump Disassembly (Appendix I & Figure 9)
In order to access the internal components of the
pump, review the exploded diagram of the pump
assembly as shown on the repair parts page
(Appendix I). Drain the pump as described above and
then remove the four bolts that hold the pump case
to the motor bracket. This will allow the motor and
hydraulic sub-assembly to be removed from the case
without disturbing the plumbing. Locate and inspect
the diaphragm and grommet which are internal water
seals. Make sure they are in good condition and are
working properly. To remove the diffuser, loosen the
3 bolts that attach it to the motor bracket. This will
expose the impeller and eye-seal. Remove the eyeseal. In order to remove the impeller, remove the
cover from the opposite end of the motor and hold
the shaft with a 7/16” open end wrench. The motor
shaft is flatted behind the centrifugal switch, close
to the motor end bell. The open end wrench can be
inserted down into the shaft from behind the motor
overload. Unscrew the impeller from the motor shaft
by grasping the OD of the impeller with a gloved hand
and rotating counter clockwise. This will reveal the
mechanical shaft seal. This seal can then be removed
from the motor shaft for inspection. The motor bracket
can be removed from the motor by removing the 4
bolts on the backside of the motor bracket. To remove
the ceramic shaft seal, press gently from the backside
on the ceramic and it will fall out easily. Inspect, clean
or replace parts as needed.
C. Pump Assembly
Reassemble unit by first pressing the ceramic seal into
the seal plate. Use rubbing alcohol as a lubricant. Do
not use an oil, vaseline or grease as this will damage
the sealing surfaces of the shaft seal during operation.
Next, install the motor bracket onto the motor using
the four bolts. Tighten the bolts in a diagonal pattern
to insure a proper fit. Place the shaft seal on the motor
shaft and then install the impeller and eye-seal. The
diffuser is positioned by three bolts that can only be
installed when the diffuser is oriented properly (Figure
9). Position the diaphragm on the diffuser suction eye.
(as shown in Figure 9). The grommet will slide over the
diffuser eye on top of the diaphragm. Lift the motor
assembly up into the pump case and attach it using
the 4 bolts. When seating the pump case against the
motor bracket, the diaphragm should be captivated
between them around the entire perimeter. This allows
the diaphragm to serve as a water seal between the
two cast iron parts. If the diaphragm is not positioned
correctly the unit will leak once the case is filled with
water. Tighten all bolts to 185 in-lbs in a diagonal
pattern to insure proper seating of all components.
