Q: In have 4 inch ID pvc well casing ..your product description says it will fit. What is the width of the pump?
by Vince from Indiana on June 16, 2016

A: The width of these pumps average 3.90" and WILL fit inside a 4" well casing.
If you have any other questions, please let me know.
by Jim, Product Expert
Q: I plan to replace a 30 yer old pump that is at 200 ft. and lower the new pump to 250 ft in a 400 ft deep well. Will I need to a check valve mid way up as well as at the well head?
by Ken G from California on July 27, 2015

A: Most submersible deep well pumps include a built-in check valve at the discharge port of the pump and It is recommended that additional spring loaded in-line check valves be installed in the drop pipe @ 200ft intervals only.
by Jim, Product Expert
Q: can I used this pump with 220 volt power instead of 230 volt? Is the 3rd wire a ground wire?
by Moises from California on September 28, 2014

A: Yes, the Red Lion RL12G05-2W2V can be wired to 220 or 230 volts. The 2-wire pumps do include a ground wire so it is technically a 3 wire pump. "3-wire" deep well pumps are technically a 4 wire pump, including the ground.
by Jim, Product Expert
Q: what guage wire should be run to this pump if set at two hundred feet
by Billy from West Virginia on June 22, 2014

A: Thank you for your interest in Water Pumps Direct. Information on the wiring gauge based on the distance for all Red Lion pumps can be found on page 3 of the OWNER'S MANUAL.
by Jim, Product Expert
Q: what parts are involved with submersible pumps that can fail and breakdown or if it doesn't work you just have to replace the entire pump?
by Sal from New York on January 22, 2014

A: When it comes to 2-wire deep well submersible pumps, the pump starting controls are located inside the pump. Any of these components can fail and cause the pump to become inoperable. By installing a 3-wire pump, those components would be located inside a CONTROL BOX, making repairs much easier when failure of these components are the cause of your pump not operating. Of course if the pump has failed due to burnt motor windings or some other cause, would would still need to pull and replace the pump, but you would have a better understanding of the pump status when the pump starting components are above ground as opposed to 50-500 feet or more, below ground.
by Jim, Product Expert
Q: Does this pump have a grounding wire beside the two hot wires?
by Dan S from New York on August 17, 2013

A: Thank you for your interest in Water Pumps Direct. The Red Lion model RL12G07-2W2V, like any other 2-Wire deep well pump, would have two line voltage wires and one ground wire so you would have three wires total.

Pump Works Great
The pump arrived about two weeks ago and arrived in only 3 days. The installation was uneventful. Everything we needed was in the box. So far the pump delivers everything we need. We have a lawn irrigation system with 4 heads on each zone, and this pump is more than adequate at keeping up. Of course, here in New Hampshire there is a lot of iron sediment in the water, so the real test will be how long it will hold up under some pretty adverse conditions.
Pros: Price, Exceeded Expectations, I'd Buy It Again, High Quality

Solid Piece Of Equipment Great Value
Pump comes complete with waterproof connectors. Only additional pieces I had to buy were a 1 1/4" to 1" reduction bushing with NPT threading and some wire ties. Since I was replacing a pump of the same size installation in my rain water collector cistern was easy after emptying the cistern of 3200 gal of water.

Only hiccup came after I installed the pump and turned it on the first time. NO WATER SERVICE to house or outside faucets. Removed pump from line and ran it unconnected to... more

1/2 Hp 2-w 230v Deep Well Pump
Been running good for a year with a 80 ft lift lots of volume, it's nice to have good pressure at the top of the house. I like it so well I bought another for a spare. Hooking it up and installing was a nonevent it was so easy. Lots of "How to" from the "site."

Red Lion 1/2 Ho
Old pump was failing so I started hitting the box stores and internet. This site was the cheapest by $56.
It is still early to see how the overall durability and quality stands for the pump has only been installed for a month and a half.

Very Pleased...
We ordered the Red Lion 1/2 HP Deep Well as a replacement when our pump quit working it arrived in a timely manner, the order said it would arrive in 3 days and on the morning of the 3rd day it was delivered.

The pump has been in the well for 2 weeks and so far we are very pleased with the performance.

Well Done!
My well pump of 25 years quit, I purchased the Red Lion pump about three weeks ago and received it this past week. I just installed it two days ago and so far I am well pleased with the performance. Installation was simple, the instructions were well written and easy to follow. The installation including the removal of the old pump only took about 3 hours. I hope this pump lasts as long as my first one.
