About RPS Water Pumps

RPS Water Pumps is a growing 100% American-owned company of friendly water pump specialists. Our main shop has moved out to the middle of nowhere near the train tracks in the Agricultural part of Northern California (we do get poked fun of for this!). Our team is focused on providing water pumping kits that are easy to install yourself - with all the parts and advice required to get you to that DIY (Do it Yourself) finish line. 

Before, the typical consumer would battle unclear pricing hidden behind distributor markups and high installer fees. Most people just want to get the job done themselves - that’s why we put great time, money, and thought into our kits. Each kit includes parts and components that make installing a water pump yourself a breeze. Our reading materials, manuals, videos and diagrams allow customers of all skill levels to install a water pump successfully the first time. As has become famous, we also offer a direct line to talk with real humans! ..our actual pump engineers for asking questions, helping troubleshoot, or planning for installation.


How reliable are your pumps?

Some of you may be familiar with RPS Solar Pumps, our sister company. We started development of our first solar pumps in 2012 and after much testing and refinement, we launched our first pump for purchase in 2014. Our customers have continued to ask over the years when we would release an AC pump, so they could take control of both their solar pumps and AC pumps.  

Not too many people know all this time we have been developing and testing pumps that could run not only off of solar, but AC power as well, for maximum flexibility. With all our pumps still in the field, and eight major winter upgrades from our engineering team, we are confident we have the highest quality pump that you can install yourself on the market, and the only comprehensive DIY kit to make it easy. We believe our customers’ actions speak more loudly, with the majority of sales this past year coming from happy returning customers and their referrals.

How do you compare with other pump brands?

Consumers historically have had lots of choices when it comes to AC-grid powered pumps. Pumps tend to be a significant monetary investment, but not everyone can be a water pump expert - so how do they know if what they’re buying will really last, and the company they’re buying from will stand behind the product? Our team has had over a decade's worth of experience building stainless steel submersible pumps made to last. Cheaply made plastic, brass, and mixed material pumps with sub-par motor technology just can’t compete - and don’t last past 6 months to a year with minimal use.

Cutting out multiple middlemen (master distributors, distributors and installers) in the process has made our systems lower cost for our customers without sacrificing quality.  We are able to eliminate the retail and middleman markups to invest in higher-quality materials, while still passing on savings to our customers.

Are there cheaper pumps available? Sure, but they are both cheaper in price and quality, sacrificing performance and lifetime. Like in most industries, we compete with lots of cheap products, both from the US and from Asia. Cheap brushed motors, flimsy plastic diaphragm pumps, and fake warranties are making a bad name direct to consumer pumps. We have stayed strong and maintained our high quality, knowing that integrity, quality and reliability win in the end. Our reputation for our commitment to our quality products, warranty and honest, friendly and respectful support is why more customers continue to trust RPS.

Great, so far !

I am east coast but could not find this motor anywhere around here at a decent price. Found these guys and ordered, product arrived in 6 business days and seemed to be a good quality built unit. We installed and unit is running as should. Now I just hope it will hold up for many years. I like the 3 wire system as from what I heard they are supposed to last much longer.

Top quality

Quality fitting with an extra long barb for added poly pipe connection and clamping surface. Highly recommend.

As a 65 year old woman and my 29 year old daughter were able to put this pump in by ourselves, anyone can do it. Ryan was so very kind and helpful. We need more people like in in our world.

Great Irrigation Pump/Great Customer Service

Using this pump as an irrigation pump. There are many irrigation pumps out there that cost an arm and a leg. This pump that I bought from RPS is electronically controlled, set desired PSI, is a fraction of the cost and is a 3 HP instead of lost of the 1HP. Called in to make sure I was getting something that was going to work for my application the rep was super helpful and knowledgeable.

Very good product

I just installed yesterday and it works great

Stainless Steel Hose Clamps - Well Ready

Pleasantly surprised!

My first impression was , what is this little thing supposed to be? 1 1/4" inlet 1" outlet digital display no pressure switch but as soon as I plug it in something unexpected happened. The pump ren so quiet I could bearly hear it. It pumped 60psi in the matter of couple minutes and it keeps water pressure consistently as I shower or use gardening hose. I cannot express how happy I am to finally find a pump that works .
I highly recommend it. Don't hesitate to spend few extra bucks on quality, you won't regret it!

I am so very pleased! Best everything! Service, advise, price, quality of product! It's never been so good here on the property 😄

Excellent Pump

I'm thoroughly impressed with how well this pump works, and it functions exactly as advertised. The screen works really well too and makes it super easy to adjust and read.

Looks nice, only it doesn't quite fit tight in the 6'' PVC Pipe.
Should be fine.

More to it

First off installing a 1 HP pump 300 ft. Deep is definitely a two man operation. As the pump descends you are holding ever more weight. At the end the weight exceeds 100 lbs. The wire provided was high quality with a thick jacket. I used three rolls of tape, you provided one. The wire compression connectors were rediculously small? The well cap was cheap with no o ring. I don't understand why you cheap out on these inexpensive items. If just one the leads loses connection the pump needs to come out? Crazy

I im very satisfied with my purchase. I will definitely buy again.

Good pump

Comfortable with the water pressure

Everything on one page

Order was easy to place, everything I needed was on one page. Arrived just as described

Pitless Adapter

I bought quit a few items from a pump, wire, rope, adapters, and check valves. All items arrived within a week and nothing was damaged. I have installed all items but have not ran power yet. All items appeared to be good quality and I look forward to using RPS product to see how it works. I do not have any dought, and will add in review when I see water.

I used your pumps to replace two Aqual Control fountain pumps. Just simple 2 wore A/C. When I installed them they did not work. The pumps came with a rubber bushing on the shafts just below the impeller. When the impeller bolt was tightened the bushing would not let the impeller spin. My old pumps had no rubber bushings. So I removed the rubber bushing and just finished reinstalling them in the pond and now they work. You should tell your customers. It was very frustrating trying to figure out why they did not work. I thought I had done something wrong. Also the pumps did not have a threaded hole in the shafts to bolt on the impeller. I had to drill a hole with a no 7 bit and tap the hole for a 1/4 20 bolt. Most people probably don't have tools to do this.

That valve came quickly and and appeared to be a solid product.

1/2 HP / 110V Single Phase / 2 Wire / 3.85" Pump Motor

Excellent part and reliable shipping

These SS barbed fittings were exactly what I needed to upgrade to poly drop pipe and couldn't find locally anywhere. Had to delay the project until they shipped and was pleased they came a day earlier than expected and fit exactly as advertised. Will keep RPS in my repertoire going forward.

Works great as expected

Great product and great service.

560 ft deep, pumping water

System assembled alright, the supplied wire connecters were not large enough for the #8 wire needed to supply power to a 500+ deep pump. I purchased a pack from the local hardware store, the heat shrink was a tight fit but worked well. I had to purchase a voltage step down transformer/relay box to work with the remote float switch in my storage tank. The transformer is a bit noisy, but maybe that's normal. Got it installed today and is flowing water properly.
