Well Pumps

Grainger carries the right well pump for your water table regardless of depth. Ground wells in areas boasting a stable, potable water supply near the surface call for a shallow well pump, while a deep well pump can ably draw from water tables up to several hundred feet deep. A submersible well pump can be a more effective solution for pushing greater volumes of pressurized water up from within a deep well, outperforming above-ground deep well pumps with the same size motor. Rely on Grainger to supply the right well pump for your water table.

pump

our pump keeps cutting on every 5 minutes. the main water valve has been turned off and no water comes from the hoses.
the pump still continues to come on every 5 minutes...
when the pressure gets down to 25, it clicks on and brings it up to 50 and cuts off.
it slowly goes back down to 25 and then kicks back on.
now, it doesn't matter if the valve is turned off or on, the pump still kicks on every 5 minutes.

Answer: 
Hello coolman,
sound like your pressure tank is water logged, the air space at the top of the tank is gone. So you need to completely drain the tank and let air into it. Or your air bladder is leaking, or your air volume control is not working. The other problem could be your check valve that is in the system is leaking pressure back thru the pump. Regardless you will have to drain the tank and check your air charge in the system.

Answer: 
Hello,
Well you have a good start but we will need more info, like how fast GPM what type of power do you have. What size pipe you will be using, those kind of things... Otherwise Grainger has about 100 different pumps that would likely work.
So we would need some more info, but that being said we would have a pump that should work.

I need a pump that will withstand a Michigan winter. Currently we have an above-ground pump connected to our stab-pipe. But, each winter we have to remove in order for it not to freeze.

Our growing chicken population will require water all winter (we carried gallons of water last year, which isn't fun at all).

Suggestions?

Answer: 
Hello,
It is a very good question, this is a question that will require a simple answer: No there is not a pump that you can install above ground and will work below freezing. You can however freeze protect with enclosures and Freeze protection tape and insulation.You can wrap the pump with freeze protection tape and the line with the same stuff. The only draw back is if you lose power you will loose your pump and lines.

I hope this answers your question, thanks for using Grainger Ask & Answer!

Hello,
Well, that is a good question do you mean 2 wire or 3 wire submersible (2 wire will have 2 or 3 wires & no control panel). a 3 wire will have (3 or 4 wires and a control panel) from there you can see on page 3927 the different pumps.

Have been using a shallow well pump, but it is not efficient in both bringing the water up the hill and pressurizing my plumbing. I use a storage tank and a second pump but the tank presents possibility of contamination. Am preparing to replace some of my water line, so now would be the time to switch if I am going to do so.

Answer: 
Hello,
Before we could answer that we would need more information like, how deep is the well? how many bathrooms in the house? when you say pumping up hill how high from the well head to the house in feet of elevation? When you say I need to replace pipe, what size is the pipe? All of these questions need to be answered before we could make a reccomendation. You can call Grainger at 800-472-4643 and ask to speak with technical support Pumps & plumbing.

I have just retired to the Philippines and my wife's house has only and hand operated pump well. I am wanting to convert this over to an electrical pump or Solar pump, with storage tank. Thinking of adding a second story to the house with new bath (hot water of course), What power of pump would I need 1.5 or better? Also any suggestions on pumps and cost. I do have the option to connect to electrical but we will be getting very expense there cause I would also like to have a faucet for others to use and also to connect a garden hose to. Does Grainger ship to the Philippines. Do you carry power generator and ship? Thanks

Answer: 
Congratulation on your retirement to the Philippines I hope all is going well for you and wife, it is a very beautiful topical island. It would make sense to convert the hand pump to a 115/230VAC electric motor driven pump which will make it easier to get water. One suggestion for a pump and tank combination would be a 1D880 shallow well jet pump and a diaphragm water tank 3GVU1 typically used in a four person home and we do carry a large offering of generators. Grainger does ship to the Philippine but we are business to business sales so to export you would have to have an account with us to place an export order. Thank you very much for your inquiry with Grainger.
