I'm a newbie to the forum and to wells. We have gotten a lot of good advice on other DIY projects from this forum before so thought of this as a great go to spot to help with this project.
We have purchased a piece of property in New Brunswick Canada with the intent of build a small cottage on it this summer.
We had the well dug last summer. Here are the specs on it:
Depth of well 100ft
Well Casing Diameter 4” steel
Depth to standing water 20ft
Well driller recommended pump be set at 50ft but did not recommend a pump size
The sheet from the well guy indicated a recovery rate of 5GPM = he said it produces more than this but felt that only 5GPM should be noted on the form
Rock Well 2ft
The place we are building will be <900sq. ft. The cottage is for occasional summer use – weekends and occasional week long visit. It will have one bath and will be used by 4 people (2 adults, 2 7-yr old kids). The building will be about 20ft away from the well and level with the top of the well.
I have read through many articles on line and threads on this forum but still not 100% sure about right size of the pump. We are thinking about buying the following pump:
Berkeley 4" 1/2HP 5GPM Submersible, Two wire - Pump Model # B5P4MS+05231
Do you think this pump is right sized for our well and planned use?
Am I correct to assume a 2-wire pump does not need a control
Also wondering what other components we need for our set up ... a pressure tank, etc?
Any help or guidance you could provide would be appreciated.
