    Default gravity feed spring

    I think posted this once but cant find it. I have a tile spring that produces 5 gal/min and a psi at the house of 15-20. Storage capacity is about 260 gallons. Assuming water temp is above 40 F, I have to check on that, can I run a 5 ton heat pump? I know that the rule of thumb is 1.5 gal/min/ton, and between 7000 and 20000 gal per day. Theoretically that would require my entire spring. I have a discharge pond. I wonder if it might be practical to at least offset some of my heating cost. Any body ever use any system like this? I live in northern Vermont.


    ps March 26...no replies...guess I'm the smart one...I'll figure this out on my own
