How far can a 1/2 H pump push water?
I have a shallow well (down pipe is 15 ft) with a 1/2 horse Gould jet pump. Connection at the house is about 150 horizontal feet and at least 30 vertical feet away. I don't know what pressure this system would produce since I just bought the place and it was a mess, including a frozen pipes. I have been fixing it since. It will be used in summer only. I am moving the pressure tank and switch to the house from the pump. Down pipe is 1 1/4" poly and up to the house is is smaller, more like 1" poly.
Do you think that I will have sufficient pressure from this setup? I would like to keep the pump. It is only 2 years old. (unless they lied about that too)
