I've never heard of a Gould Century pump, although I have heard both names associated with pump motors.
If it is indeed a true jet pump, it will work. However, if it's a spa type pump, I doubt that it will build alot of pressure, meaning it might be difficult controlling it with a pressure switch.
Please take another look at the pump and see if there is a name or model number on it (not on the motor).
I may be wrong, but I want to be sure of what we're dealing with.
