[MUSIC PLAYING] Hello. Today, we’re going to install a new
Everbilt jet well pump and replace an old one. This is relatively an easy installation. And we’re going to lead you
through every step of the way. There’s also a Use
and Care manual that’s included with the pump as a reference. If you need additional
support, we have an 800 number that you can call for
professional service. This is a deep well installation
video on wells that are 25 to 70 feet. If you have a shallow
well up to 25 feet, you’ll want to go to
the shallow well video. Refer to the list at the end of
this video for additional materials and tools needed for the installation. You’ll see that your convertible
jet pump is pre-wired to 230 volt. But this pump can also
be wired for 115 volt. So as you understand
which voltage you’re going to need, to change the voltage to
115, we simply take this top cover off and we remove it. There is a selector switch
which you can see is already set to 230-volt single phase. To convert this to 115 volt,
simply slide the switch. You’ll see it now says 115
volt. We can replace the cover. And this pump is now
operational for 115 volt. Now that we’ve determined that the depth
of your well is greater than 25 feet, we need to convert this shallow
jet well to a deep well pump. And the reason why we
do that is we’re going to take this ejector off of this pump. And this is going to go into the well. The ejector will help to push water
into the pipe, rather than pull it. So what we’re going to do is we’re
going to start removing this ejector. And it’s very simple because you’re
going to take an adjustable wrench, loosen these screws here. And we have one on each side. Use caution when you’re removing it. There’s some gaskets and
it is a little heavy. And you’re going to
pull it straight out. There’s a gasket that
holds that in place. You’re not going to need that. You’re going to set
that off to the side. This is a venturi that’s designed
for the shallow well that’s inside this ejector. We’re going to remove this
one, simply by unscrewing it. And this is the ejector. And we’re going to put in
a longer ejector that’s going to go into the deep well pipe. And you simply just slide
that into the ejector, and you’re going to
tighten it back down. And as you can see, nice and tight. So this is going to go
into the well itself. Our pump now has been
converted to a deep well pump. If there’s any questions
related to this, you can also go to the
Use and Care Guide. And there’s a detailed
explanation of how to do this. Now, we’re ready to remove
the old deep well jet pump. So first things you
want to make sure you do is follow all local and
state codes, so that we make sure that we’re in compliance. The next step is make sure you shut
off all electricity to the pump. And you can do that
by either shutting off the house breaker or the disconnect. And make sure there’s no electrical
power coming in the pump. You also want to shut off
all water going to the pump and coming out of the pump. So if you have a shut-off
valve, just shut the water off to make sure nothing is getting through. The next thing we want
to do– the next step is we want to remove these plugs
here, to remove pressure from the pump and simply use a pipe
wrench to remove it. And that’ll relieve
pressure in the pump. And then the next thing is
we have a drain plug here. Make sure you have a cup so
that you can catch the water. Simply remove the drain plug. Allow the water to drain
out of the housing. You can put that back in. And now, we’re ready to
start removing the pipe. To remove the pipe, you should
have a disconnect that’s here. And this– we’ll remove to the tank. Simply unthread it. You might have to have a
pipe wrench to do that. And we’ll disconnect it there. The next step is to remove it from the
deep well pipes coming into the home. And for simulation purposes,
we’ve set up this assembly. You simply remove the intake. And you remove the lower portion. And these are all going. And they have water in the piping,
so they’re all going to the well. Once you’ve done that, you
should be able to disconnect it. Now that we disconnected the
piping, we have one last step. And that’s to remove the pressure
switch and the electric wires, so the pressure switch. So we’re going to simply
take this nut loose. And that should unthread. And we have two wires that’ll come in. That’s your incoming power
along with the ground. Just simply remove those
wires for those screws. Now, we’ve removed the
electricity from this pump. We can now install the new one. So we’re going to remove
this out of the way. Now that we’ve assembled the
ejector and the venturi together, I’m actually going to simulate how
you would put this into the deep well. And so for illustration purposes,
we’ve set up a piece of pipe. This already has Teflon
tape on each end. You’re going to thread this
directly into the ejector. And we’re going to make
sure it’s good and tight. These fittings here should
have already been glued. Then we’re going to put a foot valve in. And this foot valve will actually keep
water in the distance to the pipe. Now, remember this deep well
can be up to depths of 70 feet. So we want to make sure that
we put in a new foot valve to hold the water in the pipe, so
it doesn’t go back into the well. And we’re going to make sure we tighten
that down with a good pipe wrench, so everything should be good and tight. Now, it’s time to install the
discharge piping up to the pump. And how that’s going to work is
let’s start with the small fitting here that I’ve already assembled. And an inch and a 1/4 fitting. The inch and 1/4 fitting is going
to go right over top of the venturi. Just be careful when you install it. And it’s going to thread
right into the ejector. And again, with Teflon
tape already there. And make sure it’s nice and tight. Then we’re going to
install the 1-inch piping. And the 1-inch piping
is going to go directly into the ejector and thread in as well. And your assembly will look
something very similar to this. Now, remember, this is a small
portion for simulation purposes. This could be as deep as 70 feet. So you want to make sure
that as you’re going to install this into the well pipe,
that you have something to hold it on. So you can clamp it to keep
it from falling in the well. Because if it falls into a
well, you’ve got a real issue. So you want to make sure
everything is good and tight. And you’re going to drop
it right into the well. And this is kind of the
assembly that’s going to be going to the deep well pump. We’re ready to install the
brand new deep well jet pump. So to do this– again, make sure you’ve read the Use– Care manual. And we’re going to set this up. I’ve already created some additional
piping to save time, so you can see. This will be going to
the deep well piping. So if you remember, we
removed this earlier. I’m going to turn this here. And the first thing we want to
do is install the 1-inch pipe. I’ve already put Teflon tape on this. So you want to make sure that
you get it good and sealed, so we don’t get any
air leaks whatsoever. The next step is to install
the 1 and a 1/4 inch. And this is going to be going
to the intake of the pump. Once those are done, now we’re ready
to install it onto the well assembly. And very simply, we’re just going to
adjust it to make sure that it fits. All the fittings are there. And make our connections. We want to make sure
everything is good and tight and that all the fittings are secure. We want to make sure there’s
no leakage whatsoever. So now, there’s one additional
thing we need to do. Because this pump will
shift as a shallow jet well pump and we converted it
to a deep well, there’s a couple things we need to remove. One of them is this vent tube that’s
coming from the pressure switch. We need to remove this plug here. You’ll simply squeeze that. Pull the tube off. Using a pipe wrench, we’re
going to loosen this. This is actually going to go into a
pressure regulator, which is included in the box of the convertible jet. We’re going to thread that in there. And this is– going to
sit this off to the side, because we’re using the moment. And next thing we need to do
is install the pressure switch. It’s going to go exactly
into the same place. I’ve already put Teflon
tape on it to thread it into the new converted deep well pump. So once we’ve done that, this portion of
the piping is completed up to the well. We now need to prime it. So we’re going to fill this
housing completely with water and allow the water to come
all the way through the pipe. And we’re also– if we need to– remember, this is our connection
for the deep well piping. We’ll fill it up with water
as well so that the pump is completely ready for priming. Now that we’ve primed
the pump with water, you want to make sure you look
down into the housing to see if there’s any bubbles coming up. If you see any bubbles, that means
there could be air in the piping. You want to make sure
it’s completely secure. Everything’s tight. But we should be able to see
the water just standing still, right at the top of the pump. So if that’s done, now we’re ready
to install the pressure regulator. Again, this is used for
the deep well installation. Pressure regulator– we’re
going to thread it directly into the top of the pump. And you want to use an
adjustable wrench or pipe wrench to get a good, secure fit. And I use Teflon tape to
make sure it’s still about– I hadn’t added that. The next thing you want to
do is add the pressure switch tubing to the bottom of the fitting. And it’s going to squeeze
on there that way. And then you can actually pull that up. And so this should be
good and tight, secure. Make sure there’s no kinks or bends
in this piping or this tubing. If you do, then you could have
a problem with the pressure switch acting erratically. So you want to make sure
that’s good and connected. Everything there is strong and tight. The next step we’re going to do is
install the piping going to the tank. And I’ve already created
an assembly through– by using the exact piping that we
had before to take out the old pump. And so we’re going to put
that onto this device. And thread it in good and tight. Again, you should have used cleaner
and glue on the metal fitting. The same thing here. We’re going to be using glue and cleaner
to make sure that it’s good and secure. And the last step will be
connecting this unit to the tank. And we have a slip fitting
that we’ve used before. We’re going to slide that there. And it should be able to
connect nice and easily. And again, by using the existing pipe
information, the links and everything, you should get a good fit. So use that and the
old piping as a guide. Make sure it’s good and tight. Check everything. Make sure everything is
good and tight and sealed. Again, no air leaks. The next step will be– we’re going to have to
connect electricity. To do this, you simply
remove this cap here. And so this is now exposing the
inside of the pressure switch. I went ahead and
pre-installed the grommet. The grommet is going to snap in here. But first, we want to make sure
we hook up the ground wire. And the ground wire
is going to hook right into the ground pin at the bottom. And screw that in good and tight. Then you have two wires here
from the electrical house. And the second wire now will complete
our connection on the electrical side. And always remember to
check your electrical code for state and local requirements
and seek electrician help if needed. Now, we’re going to
simply put the grommet in to make sure we have a good, tight seal. We don’t want anything
getting inside there. And we installed a cap. And the pump is now
ready for electricity. Now that our electrical is
connected, everything is ready to go. And we can start to test the pump. Again, make sure that when you check
into the electricity of your pump, that you truly do have
a 230-volt system. The pump is a pre-wired
230 volt. If it is 115, go through the steps given earlier on
how to convert the pump to 115 volt. So everything is ready to go. We want to, again, make sure that
there’s– all the connections are tight. The electricity is connected, and all
the tubes and things are ready to go. And then we have no
air leaks whatsoever. Now, how we’re going to prime the
pump and test the pump to make sure everything is working– we’re going
to go and open up a faucet about a 1/4 of a turn. That will leave air out of the system. And we’re going to turn the pump
on, turn the electricity on. And the pump should run in prime. Thank you for watching
this installation video. And if you followed the steps
properly, congratulations. You are up and running. For additional information, you can

  1. you should change the injector nozzle before installing the new venturi they are a set. use pvc pipe rated at 100 lb. minimum. use armoured electrical cable. 1 1/4" nipple should be twice as long as 1" to allow for pipe wrench. adjust regulator to gauge. how do i determine to use 230 or 115 volt.
