Q: Hi Jim,
We are having to replace our well pump with a new pump. I would like to find out if this is the correct pump for our well. The well is 505 feet deep with the pump i believe sitting at 500 ft. Our well is a low producing well at just 1.125 gpm. with a static level of 194 feet from the top of the well. Would this pump be the correct pump for us?

by Heidi Ott from Washington on July 05, 2016

A: Heidi,

Thank you for your interest in Water Pumps Direct. Before I can really make an educated suggestion on what pump you would need for your application, I would need to know the following specifications and requirements:

Depth of your well-505FT

Standing Water Level-194ft

Well Recovery Rate or Pumping Water Level-1.125

GPM & PSI Requirements-

Total pumping distance including any elevation variance-

Number of Sprinkler Heads (if zoned, per zone) And Their Individual GPM & PSI Requirements (if applicable)-

Total Distance from The Pump to The Furthest Sprinkler and Any Elevation Variance (if applicable)-

If you can supply this information, I'll be happy to assist you further.

Q: In have 4 inch ID pvc well casing ..your product description says it will fit. What is the width of the pump?
by Vince from Indiana on June 16, 2016

A: The width of these pumps average 3.90" and WILL fit inside a 4" well casing.
If you have any other questions, please let me know.
by Jim, Product Expert

Q: I plan to replace a 30 yer old pump that is at 200 ft. and lower the new pump to 250 ft in a 400 ft deep well. Will I need to a check valve mid way up as well as at the well head?
by Ken G from California on July 27, 2015

A: Most submersible deep well pumps include a built-in check valve at the discharge port of the pump and It is recommended that additional spring loaded in-line check valves be installed in the drop pipe @ 200ft intervals only.
by Jim, Product Expert

Q: Does wiring come with the pump
by Dwight B from Louisiana on June 11, 2015

A: The Red Lion deep well pumps include 12" - 18" of wire and a waterproof splice kit and instructions. All other wiring does need to be supplied by you or your installer.
by Jim, Product Expert

Q: what guage wire should be run to this pump if set at two hundred feet
by Billy from West Virginia on June 22, 2014

A: Thank you for your interest in Water Pumps Direct. Information on the wiring gauge based on the distance for all Red Lion pumps can be found on page 3 of the OWNER'S MANUAL.
by Jim, Product Expert

Q: what parts are involved with submersible pumps that can fail and breakdown or if it doesn't work you just have to replace the entire pump?
by Sal from New York on January 22, 2014

A: When it comes to 2-wire deep well submersible pumps, the pump starting controls are located inside the pump. Any of these components can fail and cause the pump to become inoperable. By installing a 3-wire pump, those components would be located inside a CONTROL BOX, making repairs much easier when failure of these components are the cause of your pump not operating. Of course if the pump has failed due to burnt motor windings or some other cause, would would still need to pull and replace the pump, but you would have a better understanding of the pump status when the pump starting components are above ground as opposed to 50-500 feet or more, below ground.
by Jim, Product Expert

Q: what is the purpose of the control box and can it be eliminated?
by Armand from Ohio on July 09, 2012

A: Three wire submersible motors require a control box. Control boxes contain a starting relay, starting capacitors and in some cases overload protectors. Two wire submersible motors have these components built into them and do not require a control box.

One benefit of using a three wire motor with a control box is that some of the components that are subject to failure are located above ground where you can get to them without pulling the pump.

Control boxes should never be mounted in direct sunlight or in locations that are extremely hot, this causes the capacitor life to be shortened and can cause nuisance overload trips. Do not mount the control box in a humid location such as a damp well pit since voltage breakdown and corrosion will accelerate component failure in this condition.

Control boxes are designed for vertical, upright mounting only. Any other position will affect the operation of voltage sensing relays in larger sizes and may result in water leakage.

Fast Shipping, Powerful Pump
Our pump went out at the property and after looking around I found this place and this pump so after verifying that this was a legitimate operation and reading other reviews we purchased this pump.

Install was same as any other but the pump has a stainless steel protective sleeve to protect the wires on the pump itself and comes with very, very nice heat sink sealer for the wires that are top notch over any we could acquire and after all set up the pump had water to the head in just a few... more

Had To Replace Pump On A 300+ Ft Well, Does The Job Well
Had to replace an old pump that went bust a few weeks ago. Hardest part was of course extracting the old pump, wiring, and pipe, then putting it back.

This pump was a piece of cake to figure out and install & operate. Good documentation too, which is rare these days.

Well worth the extra $200 for the half horsepower, as it practically gushes when running!
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Quiet, Fast
Cons: Heavy, Expensive

No Water
Our pump quit working,. we were out of water for a week. we called several places in our area and even went to Oregon they all wanted well over 1000.00 dollars. which would be hard for us as we are on a fixed income. so I went on the net and found you.

We ordered a pump and control box. We got it in 2 days. Needless to say, we've got water again. thank you for your help. Everyone I talked with at your company was very nice and helpful. Thank you again.

Time
The pump has been in the well for only 2 weeks. I also bought a pump saver to shut down the pump when the well gets low. Time will tell how the pump will perform.
Pros: Price, Reliable
Cons: Heavy

Great Value For The Cost
Water Pumps Direct beat Amazons cost by a substantial amount. That was the main reason I bought this pump. For those that don't want to buy a china of foreign made pump product, good luck finding one and be prepared to pay thru the orifice of your choice for it, if you do. I couldn't. This new pump looked just like the one I had in my well since 1986 and worked perfectly, so far. This pump did require a separate #12 Ga ground wire which I just added to my existing three wire cable I already... more

Not Too Happy With It
I bought this pump a little over 2 years ago . I knew I need a little extra power due to the head pressure that I have . the pump that I replaced had lasted more than 13 years and it was a 3/4 HP so I assumed that going with a 1.5 HP that it would last longer . I also added a booster pump there in my house to relieve more head pressure . I actually saw a decrease in my well pump amp by adding the booster pump . Shortly after I got it the motor starter ( that is mounted at the well head ) went... more

Jim, the Water Pump Expert
Product Expert
Warren,
I'm sorry to hear of the issues you have been having with your pump and control box. Have you tried calling Red Lion tech support at 888-956-0000 for troubleshooting assistance? It's possible that even though you assumed that a 1-1/2HP pump would take care of your extra power, that you didn't fully match the GPM rating of the pump correctly.

All deep well pumps are rated in HP (1/2HP, 3/4HP, 1HP, 1-1/2HP, 2HP, etc) & GPM (5GPM, 7GPM, 10GPM, 12GPM, 15GMP, 20GPM, 25GPM, etc) and those GPM ratings will vary over the HP ratings.

If you have any other questions, please let me know.

My Red Lion Pump
About a month ago my old pump about 11 months old died again it was the third time in three years the pump had died. I went online and found the red line pump.

I purchased it and I had Mills well drilling of Tallahassee come out and install a brand-new well they drilled the well and installed my new red line pump down about 110 feet of course it could have been placed much deeper than that but it only needed to go at hundred and 10 feet and the well was drilled and not banged and every... more

Great Water Well Pumps
It was just what I needed to get my water back to functioning. Hauling water for a house and farm animals is tough for anyone. Thank You for your prompt delivery and may God bless you all for all you do for others. I am a widow and the well service asked a lot more for the pump. Again Thank you
