Plenty of pressure when needed

"We purchased this pump as a replacement for a much costlier option to a foreign made pump on our R/D testing bench. When a new DOE law came into effect in early 2011 we needed a pump of delivering high than normal water PSI in a simulated residential water system. This pump has performed very well. The capacitor start motor kicks on instantly and there is almost no lag time to full pressure. The pump is a bit longer than normal for our use, but we were able to adapt a mounting bracket rather easily to the sturdy cast iron mounting base. Thanks Northern Tool! Thanks Flotec!"

fantastic pump

"I have two of these pumps boosting from open tanks to pressure tanks at 50psi. At my 8000 foot altitude previously used jet pumps would run for at least 15 minutes trying to top off the pressure tank. The FP5712 takes about one minute to do the job. I only wish that the pump were available in a gasoline engine driven version to go on the firefighting system I am setting up on my pickup. About 10 gpm at 50 to 70 psi is what I want."
