Quiet And Smooth Pump, Unlike The Rest
I recently lost my FP5242 because the suction line sprung a leak near the well and the pump ran dry for hours. I discovered "the big box store" no longer carries the FP5242 and bought their "substitute". The substitute was no hideously noisy that I could hear it halfway across my house.

Working Great
Replaced an old pump of this same model that was over 11 years old. The old pump motor was half rusted away literally and kept running well. I felt it would be easier to replace rather than rebuild/replace the motor. I am very happy with this pump and expect it to last as long as the one it replaced.
