Purchased this sprinkler pump for residential use. It was easy to set up and has been running well for 3-4 months now. The only complaint I have is the the motor runs really hot compared to my last pump. Otherwise it is doing its job.
Pros:Easy To Use, Quiet, Price, I'd Buy It Again
Cons:Motor runs hot compared to other pumps I have used.

"Good experience. Fast shipping. Pleased with product thus far. We will see how long it will last."
Replaced a cheapy Lowes brand pump that quit after about 4 years and due to a bad check valve ran dry a few times. Small compartment in the Red Lion for wiring. Ran good for about 6 months, now won't even hum or turn on. Tested my pump relay, ensured voltage was getting to pump, even replaced my capacitor...nothing. Hooked up a spare pump I had and it turned on right away. Supposedly these things are warrantied for 2 years so we will see how I make out.
Cons:Low Quality, Unreliable, Bad Instructions, Durability

Very sorry to hear about the issues you're having with the pump. I would suggest contacting Red Lion directly @ (888) 956-0000.
Worked for less them 1 month when I received at fist, it look like it was refurbished, with paint overspray everywhere.
Electrical part still looks fine but the pump lost its pressure and output power.
Cons:Durability, Low Quality, Unreliable

Please keep in mind that these pumps are made on an assembly line and that overspray does occur. Regarding the loss of pressure, you'll need to contact Red Lion for troubleshooting assistance. They'll be able to diagnose the issue and determine if you have a bad pump. Red Lion can be contacted directly @ (888) 956-0000.
"Warning do not test run this pump dry" The plastic will burn up in 5 sec. I would give this pump a higher rating if it had a brass impeller. I understand the purpose of the plastic but I just don't trust it in this application. We'll see if it has any durability, one month is hardly long enough to test that. It would be nice if it came with a small junction box to connect the wiring.
Pros:Quiet, Price, Exceeded Expectations, I'd Buy It Again
Cons:Durability, Needs a junction box

My previous pump failed after 18 years of reliable service. I was not able to get a replacement because the company went out of business. I found the Red Lion and after installation found that it equaled or surpassed the previous pumps performance. Installation was straight forward and I am very pleased with its quiet operation.
