Real good pump. Buy blind.

Comments about UP15-18B5 Bronze Circulator Pump, 1/25 HP, 115V:

I am not a plumber. But I had one of these pumps installed in my water heater 10 years ago. It ran very well until it finally died. I couldn't find one here in the left coast so I had one shipped from Supply House. I called just to make sure I was getting the right one. I even emailed pictures. The staff was supper friendly. After it arrived I called a pro to install it. Now I'll save hundreads in water bills because there is no need to have the shower water run until it gets hot. Hot water is now, on demand.

Easy installation as replacement

Comments about UP15-18B5 Bronze Circulator Pump, 1/25 HP, 115V:

This pump was a replacement for an earlier model. Pump was purchased with new timer and installed using existing soldered connection to plumbing. Good design, simple to position and adjust, well machined and gasketed. No leaks. Only issue is with the wire clamps in the electrical connection box on side of pump. Moving timer to install and secure resulted in wire slipping out of clamp and failure of pump to run. Clamps need more spring pressure. Reconnection was simple and has held. The pump replaced ran for many years before bearing wore out.

    Q:

    I have this pump and because of the 14.7 gpm its eating the copper pipe between it and the water heater.Any fix ?

      A:

      According to the pump curve 9.5gpm is the highest flow it will achieve and that is with zero head. Even at that flow rate the velocities are within acceptable range for a ½" pipe. Even at the unlikely flow of 14.7 the velocity would not be high enough for pipe erosion, I would look at other sources like galvanic or chemical corrosion.

    Q:

    I have this pump without a flange set. Can I just sweat a copper coupling onto it, then transition to pex, or do I need to get the flange set seperately?

      A:

      You can sweat copper right onto the pump. The picture depicts that you have a flange type, but the details describe that it is actually sweat, so you are good to go.

      A:

      It is possible by using silver solder. The risk of thermal damage to the
      unit will be high, any future leaks at this joint will be unrepairable after
      the unit is full of water. The flanges are low cost and allow for quick
      change out and never leak. If you are not experienced with silver solder
      and how to protect the unit from the heat developed you will damage the
      pump.Buy the flanges you will be way ahead.

      A:

      As with so many similar situations, there may be several ways to do any one
      thing, however, I prefer using the addition of a separate flange set. The
      set is threaded to accept a "npt" nipple and then you can transition to a
      pex fitting. To me this makes for a much better overall solution. The
      flange set also serves to provide a substantial support for the weight of
      the pump however you may be attaching your pump to a support. G Lewis

      I have the same pump it will not receive a coupling but you can sweat a 1/2" into the pump.

      This pump does not use flanges. Instead, it has 1/2" sweat connections.

      A:

      Multiply indicated operating current (amperage) times voltage to obtain power consumption in watts. Energy expense will depend on local kilowatt per hour utility charge and daily motor run time.

      A:

      Each hp uses 745.7 watts, so dived by 25, this pump, in theory, should require 30 watts while running. There will be the usual spike at startup, though.

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      1 hp = 746 watts. thus 1/25 hp = about 30 watts

    Is this the appropriate replacement for an old UP15-18 SU? If so, is there a kit needed to install after the old pump is removed?

      59896775 would be a better choice because it also has union connections. No kit is needed for installation.

    I've been trying to decide which circulating pump I need to use to pump hot water from an indirect-fired tank I'll be getting soon, and I'm wondering if this pump will be powerful enough for my needs? 2.5 story house, 3 bathrooms/2 showers, 2 kitchens.

      We've had one in our home, 4 bedroom, 3.5 baths, 2 story, for 15 years. No problems. Works great. We have a very long run from water heater to 2 of the bathrooms. If it is off it takes about 30 seconds to get hot water to the far bathrooms when you turn it on.

    Q:

    I have a Grundfos circulation pump on a potable hot water system that has failed after 10 years. There is a 3/4 inch return line in use. I want to upgrade to a pump that atleast has a built-in timer and perhaps a thermastat.

    What are your suggestions?

      A:

      You can use this Grundfos pump, sku: 96433902, which has an aquastat and timer. This is used for re-circulation. You would need to get the adapter for this pump as it has union connections on it, so for 3/4" connection you need sku: 529912.
