Grundfos 5SQ05-90 5GPM 1/2HP 115V 2-Wire Well Pump
Length of ownership: 1 week-1 month
Pros: Ordered Thurs am and it arrived fast, that same Sat pm, neatly packed double boxed with squared Styrofoam at ends. Well was really going dry with our drought, called David and he was able to help. He also sent me a $10 bill as a partial refund, rather personable and honest. After placing deeper and adding a ball valve, it's now raising the level of our 6600 ft2 pond. 3" slim and light was easy to work with. Soft start is bee's knees. When water in well was exhausted, safety feature shut it off. This is my 3rd pump, local home improvement pump and a solar pump couldn't hit the low yet continuous flow needed.
Cons: Too hard to find this pump using common search techniques. My initial venture into the Grundfos site proved overwhelming. After not finding what I needed under their "most common pumps" tab, I gave up thinking grundfos only offered the same as other brands. Several pumps and years later I stumbled across 'Grundfos 3" pumps' while browsing solar pumps. Why these pumps don't come up when typing in "1/2hp pumps" is a mystery. to me.
