Wonderful First Impression
We used the pump for the first time tonight at our neighborhood park. The pump sucked the water out of the Niagara River and fed a 100' 1 1/2" fire hose and we were able to accomplish all our garden watering. Next up we will connect to our sprinklers and see how many we can run!! Awesome pump!

Dependable And Quick Install
A great pump from a quality company. Just began using it, but so far no problems with it. Would buy it again. A bit more expensive, but has a stainless impeller.
Pros: Easy To Use, Reliable, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again

Great Pump
The Franklin pump was easy to install. Seems to be a quality built pump and is very quiet. Time will tell how well it holds up in the Florida environment and brackish shallow well water, but the stainless steal impeller should help. My biggest concern is how well the back cover, mounting bracket, and paint holds up. Getting the pump covered from the elements will definitely help.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, High Quality, Quiet
Cons: Expensive

Great Value
I bought a less expensive and lower quality pump which only lasted 18 months. I learned my lesson and bought the best pump that I could find. After much research I chose to go with the Franklin Turf Boss.

The pump is quiet efficient and uses less electricity than my old pump. I would definitely recommend this pump and dealer.

Great Water Pump
I looked and looked for the best pump I could buy and this one seemed to me to be the better one I have it hooked up to a 1500 gallon rain barrel to run my pressure washer. It needs a lot of water with consistent pressure and it works great so far.

Love This Pump
Bought this pump about a month ago. I pump 6 to 7 hours per day so I wanted a good pump. I am very satisfied.
