Bur-Cam has been making pumps for over 30 years. They have quickly become a desirable brand for us since we added them mid-2011.

One of the nice things about this jet pump is that it comes with a tank. This means there is no water to tank contact reducing the risk for seeping.

There is also no water to air contact eliminating rust. Without waterlogging this pump also eliminates the need for air volume controls.

This pump also provides 13 GPM which means it can handle about 13... more

Good Pump, Some Issues
I bought this unit to replace a really ancient Sears pump/tank combo that had finally given up and that we use for irrigation only.

The BurCam was fairly priced, arrived quickly and was well packaged with large foam pads both above and below the unit.

The installation instructions were minimal and some of the specifications detailed in the Water Pumps Direct description were incorrect - for example the inlet diameter on the supplied unit was 1" not 1 1/4" as stated. Note: the... more

Less Than 2 Years Water Tank Is Leaking Around Weld
Purchased unit in Sept 2014 - pump runs great - pressurized water tank a disappointment. Today, May 21, 2016, noticed a leak around the 1" male thread discharge line. Upon further investigation I found a crack 3/4 of the way around where the male thread was welded to a steel plate that holds the rubber bladder. Water tanks SHOULD LAST more than two years. I'm going to call Bur-Cam and let them know my feelings. I've purchased inexpensive water tanks at a local box store that have lasted 10... more
Cons: Low Quality, Unreliable, Durability, Water Tank Is Cheaply Made

Needs To Inspect Item
the pump was obviously dropped cause there was a bent leg and pressure switch. They forgot one of the plugs that goes on the side of the suction. After fixing all of the things myself its a great pump. Just an inconvenience having to fix things that shouldn't have been an issue to start with.
Pros: Price, I'd Buy It Again, Light Weight
Cons: Packaging

So So
This pump is to move rain storage water to plants since i have to haul my water (no well) i haul a 1000 gallons at a time from town 30 miles away. so every drop counts. The pump looks okay, I just had to change out the controller, I strongly recommend putting on switch with a low water cutoff. For $20 bucks, it can save your pump

So Far So Good...
So far this has been an excellent unit, but have only used it a short time. It appears be much more solidly built than the equivalent price unit at the big box lumber stores that are made of plastic, as this is cast iron, how can it not be better?

Good Pump For Construction Trailer
We installed between a 275gal water tote and a construction trailer. Works well and is quieter than expected. Be sure to tighten all fittings and retape the galv pipe connections (check for shavings).
Pros: Price, I'd Buy It Again, Quiet
Cons: Galv Pipe

Bur-cam 13 Gpm 1/2 Hp - Shallow Well Jet Pump
I installed my pump a few weeks ago, and it's running great so far. I own a 3 bedroom, 1 bath home, and this pump is doing the trick. It's fairly quiet and I have good water preassure - the 1/2 hp motor with the 13gpm rate is good - not a bad pump for the price.

Yes, a few of the factory fittings leaked, which was a pain, but nothing that re-taping the threads couldn't fixed. My pump came undamaged, which I was a little worried about given the reviews. The packaging could be beefed up a bit... more

Great Value
Did research on pumps from numerous distributors/manufactures and found this was the best buy for the money. I use it as a pump for my garden and yard.

Installed with no problems. Directions easy to follow and accurate. Free shipping made this the best buy on the market. Warranty beat all others.
