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.

I needed a circulator with the flange 90 degrees to the motor housing so this was perfect. I like the three speeds as I can pick one that suits the application. It is easy to wire. Be aware that the housing is threaded for the electrical connector which may have to be installed before mounting this circulator at the boiler manifold. The shipping is very prompt

This is the new standard in circulators

By MM on LI

from Melville, NY

Verified Buyer

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

I have three of these on my own system and just installed two on a customers boiler refit. The small size, easy wiring and adjustable flow make these the new standard for hot water heat. From the low setting which is almost silent to the high setting which is barely a hum, these are super quiet. The three settings give a huge flow range with good ratings for head loss, far beyond what a single speed circ will give you. Grundfos has been around for a long time with a good track record. For the same price as similar rated Taco pumps, the multi speed adjustability can't be beat. With a single speed circ, you will always be a little off from the specified flow requirements of your system, either too high or two low. With this little wonder a flick of the switch increases or decreases the flow to better match what you need. Best circulator on the market for residential or light commercial hydronic system

After a lengthy research process, I reluctantly chose this pump to replace my old 100 series B&G. From what I can tell this pump appears to be working better than the series 100 that it replaced. I currently have it set on speed 2 and I can't tell its running with more comfort in the zone in which it controls. I used to hear my old B&G pumping away but now all I hear is the relay kicking on. I plan on replacing my other 3 series 100 with these pumps as soon as possible.

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

    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

      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)

      Hard to say from a distance. Could it be air in the lines? That's
      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.

      Never tried this means to manually turn pump off and would not suggest it.  Contacts inside pump speed change switch are of a "sliding" nature and might make weak contact causing a hot spot in the switch and a burn-out.  You are best to simply unplug the pump or power off its control source.

      More information would be helpful. Do you have a pressurized system?Sounds like you have airlock. I would try this first. Open the pressure release valve on the boiler and let the air out until water comes out. With the system off and cooled down you might have to do this a couple times until the air is bled out.
      These pumps don't actually push water so any air in the system causes the water to not circulate.

      Answered on 11/7/2012 by Anonymous
    • A:

      Wow! You can't do it without removing the motor from the volute. The pump is in a closed system and the storm shouldn't have gotten into the piping. However electrical on the outside could be water damaged. If you had 220V in the house wiring due to the storm (this could happen outside of your house on the power lines) you could have serious damage to electrical parts. A complete inspection by a professional is mandatory for any heating system that has been flooded.

      I would just use the large o-ring on the pump. It should compress adequately against the flat surface of the valve set.

      do not use more than one set of seals. use whatever you think will seal
      the best. one or the other, not both.

      A:

      I used the flat ones but I would guess that you could use either or but not both. You will have a extra set. If you look at the matting surface on the pump it should be flat.

      A:

      The key thing is that you don't use both, but the literature that comes with the isolation flanges advises that you use the diamond-shaped gaskets that come with the flanges.
