This pump is used in a two zone wood and gas fired boiler system for infloor heating and radiators on the second floor. The pumps I ordered were less than half the cost of purchasing this pump in Canada, including shipping. They are a must have in my system so I need to keep two spares on hand. I live 2 hours away from a major centre and it's nice to know I can afford to have two of these pumps on hand. Easy installation for anyone with even a little bit of handyman genes.

It was defective

I have several Grundfos pumps. Some are still working after 18 years. This one did not work out of the box. I did purchase a Grundfos pump locally and it is functioning fine.

This is my third Grunfos pump. I am going to be tough evaluating this one. The other problems may have been caused by our water.
I ordered 1" flanges and should have ordered 3/4" The install would have been smoother. But it went together with ease - just extra parts.

Comments about UP15-42F, Circulator Pump, 1/25 HP, 115 volt:

The old pump I replaced was twice as big and required monthly oiling of bearings which caused leakage of oil on the floor. This pump eliminates all of these issues, maintenance free. I have 5 pumps for my apartment bldg and one of them is already probably 15 years old and still going strong. Hot water furnace is in the basement and this pump is used to heat an apartment in the 2nd floor.

  • UP15-42F, Circulator Pump, 1/25 HP, 115 volt

    Q:

    I have the UP15-42. There's a BUC7 behind the number... Anyway, it's soldered directly into the piping with no flanges. Can i buy a new pump and just bolt the new pump to the existing housing? The part that's mated with 4 allen bolts.

    Q:

    I just received the grundfos pump. My old pump was the late bell and grossett motor/pump combo. My home is approx. 2500 square foot and it is a ranch type home. What I want to know is will the UP-15 42 be sufficient for this application?
    Asked on 4/16/2014 by Harv from Oshkosh,wi

    1 answer

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      It depends on the flow and head pressure requirements of the system. These are based heavily on the insulation quality of the house, the piping layout, and the size of system piping. You may want to find the model number of the Bell & Gossett pump in order to compare its pump curve to that of this Grundfos pump. You can also try to calculate the actual flow and head pressure requirements by using the document at the link below.

    Q:

    Can this pump be slowed down for the GPM flow? It runs as 17GPM and I'm needing about half that flow rate. Thank you.
    Asked on 2/5/2014 by DrewPalmer04 from Christopher, IL

    2 answers

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Most circulator pumps operate along a single pump curve. The amount of flow a pump can circulate depends on the head pressure it needs to overcome. Head pressure and flow rate have an inverse relationship. The maximum flow rating assumes that there is virtually no head pressure. Depending on the head pressure in your system, this pump may be able to provide about 8.5 GPM.

      Not unless it is a multi speed pump. You could put in a ball valve and slow
      down the flow.

      A:

      The instructions that come with that pump have very helpful pictures on how to properly install it.
      However, I can put into words.
      1) that pump can be installed vertically or horizontally.
      2) Always install this pump so you can face the motor after it it installed..
      3) As you face the motor remove the four alan head screws.
      MAKE SURE YOU HAVE DRAINED THE WATER OUT BEFORE YOU DO THIS!!!
      4) Rotate the pump so you can read the information on the end of the pump.
      it should say Grundfos and the pump model. The black electrical box should be on the left.
      5) tighten up the four alan head screws.

    if this pump is used for winter use for floor heating, can the pump be turned off during the summer months or should the system be run on a regular basis.

      A:

      I shut my pump off one spring and the next winter I turned it on and it was making noises/failed. I'm not sure of the age of the pump, nor can I say if I just left the pump run all spring/summer/fall if it would have failed anyway. After replacing my pump I now leave the pump run year round and just shut off the gas to the boiler. I open all my zones so water flows. The basement floor (55 degrees) may warm up a tad in the summer months and maybe (marginally) cool the upstairs zones.  Geo-thermal cooling to some degree..

      Circulation pumps are best left running continually. If the pump is left idle for long it will begin to rust and may jam, preventing restart

      Jay, I have two of these running in my heating system and I shut them off every spring and on again in the fall. This is the most dependable part of my heating system. I have been running them for twenty years and have replaced two.

      A:

      The hot pump says the motor is probably running. There are 2 other things that may be wrong. 1. the impeller may be worn out or has come loose from the shaft. 2. there may be an air lock in the circulating fluid.

      Maybe but not if the pump is circulating cold water. If the source fluid is
      hot like from a solar system then it would be true. Dan

      As a general rule yes. If you have given them the model number of what is
      there now and they have recommended a replacement pump, that pump will come
      with replacement gaskets and should fit the existing flanges.

      Yes, you're correct. All you have to do is replace the existing pump. No
      need to specify flange sizes. The pump has standard flange-to-flange
      dimensions that ensure trouble-free retrofitting.
