Q: Jim, will this work on any motor or just Franklin electric. My old goulds pump with a Franklin electric motor on it worked fine with this unit. My new goulds pump has a centripro motor and will not kick off when we'll is dry. Didn't know if pumptec unit is bad or just compatibility issue.
by Keith from New York on August 13, 2016

A: Pumptec is optimized to work with Franklin 2- & 3-wire single-phase motors from 1/3 to 1.5 hp but will work with any motor with the same specs. Just be aware that Pumptec is not designed for use on permanent split capacitor
(PSC) motors.
If you have any other questions, please let me know.

Great For Dry Cistern Or Frozen Intake, Don't Burn Out Your Pump
I burned out a shallow well pump when the water line from my cistern froze. To prevent this from happening again I installed the Franklin Pumptec to detect lack of water flow into the pump. The Pumptec detects low current utilization and shuts off the power to the pump.

I have tested this by shutting off water supply by closing a valve on the supply side of the pump -- within three seconds the Pumptec detects the low load condition and shuts down the pump.

Having said the above, ... more

Easy To Wire Up
I wired mine after my Emergency Generator Transfer Switch. I had to turn the sensitivity all the way down because it kept shutting off my pump. I have a low producing well and will be addressing that next Spring.

My Well contractor wanted $400 to install this same model. It took me an hour because I'm dumb and I saved a couple of hundred bucks.

This was the cheapest price for this device on the internet.

Like The Adjustments
I had an older model of the Franklin Pumptec and I would have to jumper around the protection sometimes to get our pump to run. After installing this new model I was able to adjust the Load sensor to 60% and now everything works fine.

Works Great!
I purchased a Pumptec about 8 years ago and it recently began showing high incoming line voltage, the Electric Company came out and checked voltage and reported it was perfect. I ordered another Pumptec, installed it and now the system works perfectly again. I will say Water Pumps Direct price was lower than I had seen it advertised in Ebay. The most important thing is it was delivered quickly and no shipping charges. I am very satisfied.
