3/4 HP Deep Well Jet Pump w/ Pressure Switch, 115V/230V, Cast Iron
FloForce FJPC-075 is a 3/4 HP Convertible Jet Pump with 115/230V dual voltage capability. Used for a wide range of residential, agricultural and irrigation applications.
Unlike shallow well jet pumps which have jet ejector permanently located in the pump, convertible jet pumps feature a removable jet ejector assembly which can either be located at the pump (shallow well type assembly) or placed in the water well, "converting" the pump to a deep well pump. The later assembly is used for wells up to 82ft in depth and is also common for areas with varying water table. Convertible jet pumps are suited for all well types, including drilled, dug and sand-point wells as well as ponds, lakes and similar water sources.
Jet ejector assembly is included with this pump model as shown on the picture. Other components typically required for installation (not included) are foot valve (SKU# 527T06) and pressure gauge (SKU# 356-100PK1). A complete selection of Amtrol Well-X-Trol well tanks is also available.
This well jet pump features a 1-1/4" NPT suction inlet and 1" NPT outlet. In addition, the pump includes (3) 1/4" NPT ports with plugs: top - for priming, bottom - for drainage, side - for pressure gauge (optional). Jet pump voltage is factory set to 230V and can easily be changed to 115V by turning the switch from 230V to 115V position (see installation manual). Pressure switch is factory set to 20-40 psi range and can be adjusted to operatre at 30-50 psi if needed (instructions located on switch cover).
Can the discharge port be used as the priming port? Should be the same area where water would accumulate.

No. When the pump starts working, it will start pumping water through the discharge port and may splash over the electrical contacts. All the piping must be in place in order to start priming the pump - please refer to page 4 of the manual for details.
