The radiant heat in my home is provided by hot water circulated by two Grundfos UPS15-58FC pumps, and there can be times when these seem to run for hours on end. When I installed my system, I purposely ordered three of these so that I would have a back-up in the event of an emergency. Well, I am not always the most brilliant person in the world; however, this did prove to be a wise idea. For some reason, one of the first two did fail near the end of the winter. These things can happen. In less than twenty-minutes, I switched out the bad and switched in the good, and the zone was back in business without losing any heat. The next day, I contacted Pex Supply with my warranty information, and a new replacement arrived without issue. Nothing critical has happened since, but I am prepared if it does. Meanwhile, we remain efficiently toasty throughout the cold season here on Cape Cod.

I bought this pump as a spare so I will be evaluating the one I bought in June, 2011. I am using the pump on my home hot water heating system. After installing the pump in June it seemed to work fine. When the heating season started this fall I put the pump on the low setting and it was quite for a few weeks then started to squeak. When I turned it to medium the squeaking stopped so I let it run on medium. In mid December it started to squeak on medium so I turned it to the high setting. It now only squeaks when it starts or stops but does whine(not loud) when running. It still works but at this point I am disappointed. My brother has a pump like mine only it is a single speed and he loves his.

Comments about UPS15-58FC, 3-Speed Circulator Pump, 1/25 HP, 115 volt:

I thought the pump had failed (after 1.5 yrs) as it was the last component that I had not replaced in one of my hydronic zones, so I contacted Supplyhouse.com for a warranty claim. They sent out a replacement immediately and charged no shipping and I was supposed to send the defective pump back for refund. Turns out I still had the same problem with the new pump... so the pump wasn't bad after all. Now I have an extra pump in case of a failure. I'm not too surprised I guess as I have one of these pumps that has been in service for 30 years.

I now use TWO of your pumps off of one stove. I pump heated water from the stove to the house and back over 100', 1" tubing total on one pump!

The second pump only travels 10' to my shop then another 150' round trip through my shop. Did I mention my shop has in floor heat!? (An additional 800 ft of 1/2" tubing.)

Both these pumps run non stop 24/7. Never quit, never get hot, never leak!

Comments about UPS15-58FC, 3-Speed Circulator Pump, 1/25 HP, 115 volt:

Used this pump for circulating boiler water through an indirect water heater. The three speeds are plus and allow this pump to answer a wide range of needs. It's a workhorse. The boiler company provides this exact pump with its high end boiler for boiler circulation - that says something too.
As always Supplyhouse service is second to none. I live on a fairly remote island so I order all kinds of stuff via internet - even groceries - and these folks are the BEST!

  • UPS15-58FC, 3-Speed Circulator Pump, 1/25 HP, 115 volt

    Q:

    The manual indicates this pump needs the motor shaft in the horizontal position, no problems here. My question is, can I install the pump in the vertical position with the flow from the top pumping down?

      A:

      With my system, pumping upward always allows a constant gravity fed supply of liquid to insure the pump does not run dry. Running dry will cause seal failure.

    Q:

    I'm replacing a b&g 100, for my needs this should be sufficient or better.
    I am hearing things like I should remove the check valve from it before installing. Is that a good idea for improved water flow? Will removing the valve cause the unit to be less efficient economically? Any advise would be helpful.

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      Removing the check valve will give slightly more flow, just be sure that your system does not require a check valve in the pump. If you are replacing a pump that did not have a check valve built in, then you likely don't need it. Be sure to install the new pump according to the manufacturer's instructions, and purge the air from the system.

      Hi you can run the pump with or without the check valve and it will run very well and will not be less efficient it is only to block back flow in the pump

      Answered on 10/27/2014 by theone from canada
    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      Check valves are there to prevent backflow. If backflow is not a concern
      then take it out. If for no other reason, it is one less device that could
      cause a problem.

    Q:

    I have a UPS15 58 FRC servicing 2 zones of baseboard heat. In order to get proper circulation, the control had to be set on high. Can this setting be used as a run setting, or must it be reduced to medium for regular operation?
    Asked on 1/4/2014 by Joe from Guilford CT

    8 answers

    • A:

      It's fine until it's not fine. Max flow thru 3/4" Type M copper tube is 6 gal/min. Higher than that erodes the tube. Flow should be 1 to 4 gal/min. You have unequal length zones. When sys. is running most of the water and heat flows thru the shorter zone. Running on Hi may exceed the flow rate thru the shorter zone, eroding the tube. Put in a Caleffi Circuit Balancing Valve on the short zone and set it between 1 to 4 gal min. Then adjust the pump speed setting for the second zone. Excessive noise in the baseboards indicates hi flow. It's not a simple answer. You want 1 to 4 gal/min flow above the Pressure Loss (Friction Loss) of the pipe and fittings.

      It is fine to use the high setting. I have been using this setting on a couple of my UPS15-58 pumps with no problem. It just uses 7 additional
      watts of power moving from medium to high.

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      I have looked extensively for any indication that the multi-speed
      feature implies a consideration for limiting power via duty cycling,
      etc. when operating at higher settings and have found nothing. I believe
      the high speed setting (87 Watts, and less than 10% greater than the
      mid-speed setting) is the nominal performance configuration and that it
      is designed to operate continuously this way. The lower settings in the
      UPS series permit energy savings and quieter operation when the higher
      pump speed is not needed.

      A:

      the noise is usuaaly air in the system, however it can also be caused by verycold water hitting the hot boiler coils, this can ne rectified by lowerng boiler temperature, or installing a mising valve to mix some of the boiler water with the return water, thus raising the teemp of the input water to the boiler.
      This situation will arise in colder weater, and will be less prevalent in warme(less severe temps)

      unlikely if you haven't opened the system and the pressure is maintaining
      at the recommended 12 PSI. If the pump is truly "rattling" there's a bad
      bearing or loose impeller. I'd monitor it and if it gets worse, fix it.
