I received the MQ3-45, and installed it to resolve my low water pressure from my city connection. My lawn sprinklers would not work properly using the city water, but they work fantastic, now that I've installed the Grundfos MQ3-45!! The pump was easy to install, and works as advertised...wish I had done this a long time ago. Thanks.

Had my first pump installed in 2006 by professional. Two months ago it started stopping intermittently. I called Grundfos, spoke to a plumbing supply company and no one could actually tell me how to trouble shoot it or what may be wrong. It was answers like, I think it may be this or that.I found a pump at (what a great company) for $418 with no tax and free shipping. It was delivered the next day and I had it installed in 15 minutes.I anyone needs a pump for parts, let me know.
Good while it lasts

I just purchased my 2nd Grunfos MQ3 in a 10 year period. Actually my 3rd pump (Grundfos replaced my 1st one free of charge due to a pressure switch issue covered under warranty).This pump works very well with my rain water collection system which services the entire house. It is very easy to install and runs flawlessly......until it dies, which you should expect after around 5 years.
Great pump!!

Review for: Grundfos MQ3-45 Booster Pump, 1HP, 115V (96860195)
I'm using this pump in a home that is on a village water supply but the water pressure was only 32 psi. I also installed a water pressure control valve in front of the pump to be able to adjust the output pressure from the pump. This combination worked well.
So far So good

Review for: Grundfos MQ3-45 Booster Pump, 1HP, 115V (96860195)
The Grundfos MQ3-45 is a great inline pump. I"m using it to provide water from my rain water collection tanks to my pool and house. I have the pump near the tanks with more than 200 ft of 1" pipe to the house and pool. It's no problem for this pump which delivers 60+ psi water pressure no problem. It's easy to hook up and run and very quiet. The auto off feature is also nice for maintaining pressure and protecting against running dry. The only feature its lacking is the ability to control the water pressure level from the pump itself. I'm using an external pressure regulator. Ordering from PEX was easy and fast!
I highly recommend this pump

This is our total house water pump from our 5K L underground tank and it works great.Our special hydro pressure R/O system can keep it busy till the R/O tank fills after use but once I figured out why the pump was going on 12 sec. off 60 sec.and repeated, no problem.Looking to have years of trouble free service.
Great pump, price, fast shipping

This is 2nd pump. First one ran house flawlessly 5 years 24x7. Think the pressure sensor is faulty or needed service. Bought this as backup and will get first serviced.

Review for: Grundfos MQ3-45 Booster Pump, 1HP, 115V (96860195)
[...]The pumps works excellent I have three showers in my house and it keeps the pressure up while everyone gets a shower. My city pressure was about 30 to 35 psi.Now I have a solid 65 psi and above. I installed the pump in same room as my washing machine. It runs very quiet when I shut the door you can bearly hear it. Its great to take a good shower I have a double headed shower nozzle now.

Easy to install for the simplest mind. Boasts excellent pressure. Extemely reliable for the past 4 years. Quiet and small. Plumbers hate this thing cause it saves the homeowner tons of money and problems.

I have an MQ3-45 pump installed to boost my water pressure. The pump worked fine until winter when I turned on my whole house humidifier. It is low flow and causes the pump to short cycle. It turns on for approximately 5 seconds and off for about 60 seconds. Is there an adjustment to correct this?
Read 1 answer
If you can limit the water supply to the humidifier so that it's under 0.3 GPM, the pump will not turn on. Otherwise you'll need to install an in-line well tank (such as Well-X-Trol by Amtrol).

What is the warranty period?

The warranty is 24 months from the date of installation, but no more than 30 months from the date of manufacture. We honor manufacturer warranties and if your pump fails within this period, contact our Customer Service for a replacement.
