Important Pump Information, Please Read and Understand !

The Life of a pump is directly related to the operating conditions it works under.  One of the most common causes of premature pump failure is LOW head pressures. Pumps are designed to work under a certain amount of load. In low head applications not enough back pressure is put on the pump and it runs to freely.  This causes the motor to run to hot and shortens the life of the motor.

In your plumbing system you should incorporate a valve somewhere in the discharge line. This valve can then be closed part way to simulate back pressure if not enough natural pressure is created.

Testing for back pressure- How do you know if your pump has enough back pressure?  The best way is test the current draw of the pump.  Every pump has a label on it which shows the amp draw of the motor.  If you have too little back pressure on the pump then the amp draw will be higher.  As you close the valve on the discharge line the amp draw will decrease.

By using a simple device like the Kill-A- Watt meter for 115 volt applications you can easily dial in the amp draw on the motor. When you are done the amp draw should be equal to or less than the amp draw on the label. You are then within the safe operating range of the motor on your pump.  For 230 volt applications you can have your electrician test the running amp draw for you or you can purchase a 230 volt amp meter.

This is the single most important thing you can do to ensure long life of your pump motor, particularly on larger motors
