Anyone know of a good well pump manufacturer?
« on: July 17, 2012, 06:59:41 PM »
Our pump just stopped working a week ago.It was hell trying to find a good quality pump.We thought we had found a good one but it was a big bust.All the pumps we could find were made in China and NONE of them worked.We had to go out of town to find one that works.!

My advice is to not buy anything made in China,especially a well pump.!

There are some German pumps, but you will find most deep well pumps last between 8 and 12 years depending on service.
I used to sell and install them, on of the bigger killers of pumps is sand and control boxes, replacing the capacitors can help extend pump life.
I assume you are using 220V pump?

Grundfos is still a great pump, try this link, it is my best supplier and always stand behind their products.

Thanks Solar!
You're quite welcome.
Let me know if you have any questions, I have years of experience in the field, from drilling wells to full blown system installs.

I'm pretty sure Jacuzzi well pumps are still made in Arkansas. You should also check out Flint and Wallings.
Any time ya get to thinking about yourself as someone of great importance,  just try ordering another mans dog around.
