Does this pump have a rope tie-off to prevent losing it in the well?
David M. 
from Arkansas 
March 14, 2018
Answer
Yes, it does. This should actually be a pretty standard feature that should come with any submersible deep well pump.
+
I have read that this pump utilizes a Franklin motor, is this true?
Ken K. 
from Texas 
May 10, 2017
Answer
Red Lion, while a division of Franklin Electric, does NOT use a Franklin motor on their deep well pumps. The Red Lion Deep Well Pumps include a VHC motor which is also a division of Franklin Electric. Little Giant Deep Well Pumps, on the other hand, are also a division of Franklin Electric and DO include the Franklin motor.

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

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?
Ken G 
from California 
July 27, 2015
Answer
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.

what guage wire should be run to this pump if set at two hundred feet

Answer
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.

I am converting from a jet pump to a submersible pump. I am installing a new pressure tank and am ordering a RL 12G05-3W2V pump from you. What else will I need for my conversion? Wire, etc? The pump specs say the outlet is 1 1/4". Is the water line that connects to the fitting 1"?
Paul F 
from Kansas 
May 02, 2014
Answer
Thank you for your interest in Water Pumps Direct. You will need wire and a torque arrestor (you will need to purchase locally) and depending on the depth of the pump installation, you might need a check valve. A splice kit is included with the pump for a water tight splice to your wiring off the pump. You can also check the pump OWNERS MANUAL for additional installation information. The connection on the pump discharge is 1-1/4" however you can add a 1-1/4" to 1" reducer if you prefer as long as your pressure tank is relatively close to the well head.

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?
Sal  
from New York 
January 22, 2014
Answer
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.

Can a pump saver and a float switch be used with thiscontrol box that comes with the pump. Thanks
Kevin

Answer
Thank you for visiting Water Pumps Direct. I am not aware that this would be an option. You might try calling Red Lion tech support at 888-956-0000 to verify however.

what is the purpose of the control box and can it be eliminated?
Armand 
from Ohio 
July 09, 2012
Answer
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.
