"the best shallow well pump" will not be found at home depot, lowes, etc.. they are all cheap big box pumps. your myers would be better than anything from those stores. you also dont want a pump with a screen up front. thats a pool pump, it wont make pressure, and the screen is too large to catch anything anyway. you need a regular jet pump, good quality with a cast iron head. goulds, sta-rite.. something like that.
