Good Value
Arrived on time. Installs easy, Check the fittings, air pressure & electric connections as you go, assume this is prepped for shipping not installation. Installation manual is a little sparse. Needed a little fine tuning of tank pressure & pressure switch, but that's expected. Pressure gauge accuracy is a little off, used known accurate set of gauges to set up & determine difference. Nonetheless, good little pump for my lawn & garden.
Pros: Price, Quiet

Needs To Inspect Item
the pump was obviously dropped cause there was a bent leg and pressure switch. They forgot one of the plugs that goes on the side of the suction. After fixing all of the things myself its a great pump. Just an inconvenience having to fix things that shouldn't have been an issue to start with.
Pros: Price, I'd Buy It Again, Light Weight
Cons: Packaging

Bur-cam 13 Gpm 1/2 Hp - Shallow Well Jet Pump
I installed my pump a few weeks ago, and it's running great so far. I own a 3 bedroom, 1 bath home, and this pump is doing the trick. It's fairly quiet and I have good water preassure - the 1/2 hp motor with the 13gpm rate is good - not a bad pump for the price.

Yes, a few of the factory fittings leaked, which was a pain, but nothing that re-taping the threads couldn't fixed. My pump came undamaged, which I was a little worried about given the reviews. The packaging could be beefed up a bit... more

Great Value
Did research on pumps from numerous distributors/manufactures and found this was the best buy for the money. I use it as a pump for my garden and yard.

Installed with no problems. Directions easy to follow and accurate. Free shipping made this the best buy on the market. Warranty beat all others.

Damaged On Reciept
Just got this pump and tank, the packaging is horrible. It comes in a cardboard box with a piece of cardboard at the top which I guess is to hold everything in place. Mine has the glass of the pressure gauge shattered and the cover of the motor where the fan is, dented in with paint chipping off, not sure the fan will be affected yet. There are also some assorted abrasions, it looks like a second hand unit. Instructions are very poor also, since it comes with the tank it should at least give... more
Cons: Packaging, Bad Instructions

Great Product!
Finally got the Bur-Cam pump installed. So here's another "thumb's up" for what I consider to be a great pump. It's quiet, no vibration, and does what it's supposed to do. Supply water to the whole house.

I purchased it as an emergency back up, as we continue to lose our municipal water service quite often without warning. So next time that happens this household has a back up plan.

I will say (as many of the other reviews have) that the packaging needs to be beefed up. It had... more

So Far, So Good
In service approximately one week, no problems so far - but cannot predict this unit's long term functionality. Only other comment, the instructions packaged w/ this unit are for the pump only.... Electrical connections for the pressure switch are a little misleading for a novice, pressure gauge is included, but packaging needs improvement to prevent shipping damage......................
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Features
Cons: Packaging, Bad Instructions, Rec'd With Small Dent In Water Tank Packaging Could Be Improved

Impressive Power, Simple Installation
We bought a fixer-upper cabin up north and needed a pump that would fit in a small pit and provide good pressure and volume. After researching the web for a couple days, this pump kept coming up as an ideal solution in similar situations. I'm a reasonably skilled handyman, but it's been years since I dealt with a shallow well pump.

After some additional research, I also bought the sand filter Bur-Cam makes that fits on the front of this pump. I put everything together as much as... more

"A well pump isn't something you have to buy every day, but if it was, I'd be shopping here. Shipped like lightning, packaged well, and just as described. The details on the website were spot on and complete, and it made ordering a piece of cake. Saved this site in my favorites for future use."
