  1 Question
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.

Great Customer Service
I bought the red lion pump in 2012, had it install lasted less then a year. Motor was shot. The part is warranty. I called customer service and they ask me to send them the motor sticker which came off easy, and they shipped me a new one. It took around 2 weeks. We had it install and it works great. I hope this one will last for many years to come. Customer Service was great, they were nice to me with no hassles. This is a good company. I am so grateful this was a smooth replacement... more

You Need This On Larger Hp Pumps
Not much to say about this device. I reviewed the pump separately. You need to order this separately when you buy a large pump as they don't come with the motor starter as some of the lower hp models do. Performed well and started the pump every time. You should use some sort of level control to shut your pump down when a no flow condition is sensed so you don't burn out your pump motor. The overload protection on this controller should not be used for that purpose.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Price, I'd Buy It Again

Control Box
So far so good. This deep well had not been run for over 10 years. It needed a start capacitor but for about 50 more bucks I got a whole new control box. The well pumps fine.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: None So Far
