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: Does wiring come with the pump
by Dwight B from Louisiana on June 11, 2015

A: The Red Lion deep well pumps include 12" - 18" of wire and a waterproof splice kit and instructions. All other wiring does need to be supplied by you or your installer.
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: Jose, what is the amperage of a Red Lion 1.5 220 deep well pump.
by Cliff from South Carolina on May 11, 2013

A: Unfortunately, we do not have access to the amp ratings for these pumps. Please call Red Lion tech support at 888-956-0000 for further assistance.
by Jim, Product Expert
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.

Working Great
Been using this pump for several years and is working great. Had problems with pressure tank and broke the water line fitting 40 ft above the pump.I think do to much cycling. This replaced a very old Red Lion and also a recommended pump by others I know
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Durable, Fast, Reliable

Worked Well
This pump was used to replace a like unit that failed after 1 - 1/2 years. This new pump has worked well for 2 months so far and perform very well. The failed unit has been replaced by warranty. Both Pumps Direct and Franklin (the manufacturer) were very good to deal with on the warranty claim.

I would buy this pump again from Water Pumps Direct.

Replacement For Grundfos Submersible
I had a Grundfos submersible go out after 20 years. I could source a new one locally, but could not find performance data showing GPM at 60# cutoff to determine replacement pump without pulling pump first. Performance curve charts aren't enough for me. Having a manual hand pump down same casing, I wasn't gonna do that and be completely without water.

So, I researched several different manufacturers and found that for my needed GPM at 60# cutoff (to satisfy wife's desire to over-water... more

Pump Threads
My initial impression was favorable but then I tried to screw my pipe adapter into the pump and found the threads in the plastic female threads of the pump were distorted or machined wrong making screwing the adapter into the pump a problem. The end result was I was unable to get many threads engaged. I am hoping that enough to hold the pump were engaged. I have bought quite a few products made in China and fit and quality is usually poor.

Water Outage Resolved...
We were out of water for about a month. We were using the neighbors water spigot to flush, wash dishes, bathe and hand wash clothes. We're not too proud to admit that, and did well considering some people out there can't live without a cell phone let alone survive without electric pumps and such.

Anyway, my husband contacted Water Pumps Direct, and ordered a Deep Well pump and it arrived! We were ecstatic and "pumped" with this arrival. We had a local resident well guy pull the... more

Worked Right Out Of The Box
I had a 1 hp pump in my well that lasted 13 years and it finally went. Bought one from Lowe's and it lasted 2 days. I found the Red Lion pump on line from Water Pumps Direct and it works great. 40-60 lbs of pressure and the pump has a 3 year warranty and it comes with the control box.. Lowes was 1 year. I would not but a pump from Lowes or Home Depot again.
Pros: Durable, Price, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again

I've Got Water!!!
This is the first time I've set a pump. Measured the well to be 255', and set the pump at 220'. Followed the wiring diagram and the piping diagram and to my surprise it worked! Not only that...It works very well! Would like to thank WPD for following up on the shipping damage to the control box ...The replacement arrived in 2 days. Thanks Guys @ WPD...

Exceeded My Expectations
This was the first time for me installing my own well. Static water is a 115 ft, well depth 203 ft and I set the pump at 150 ft.
So far so good, performance sheet states I should be getting 14 gpm but we are getting 20 gpm. Im running 1.25 schedule 80 pvc and have not completed the installation to all the property outlets. But at this time Im extremely pleased with the performance, time will tell. Also saving a few hundred dollars on a quality pump always helps.
