    Default Shallow well pump and tank combo

    I have been tempted to buy from Home Depot a Flotec unit but read the forum does not suggest this. I have two pumps on one well. One pump is a sprinkler pump then I added another pump to provide hose water around the outside of the house. I made a mistake buying a Harbor Freight combo unit and it burned up electrically. I need to replace it and need some recommendations please. I live in Florida and irrigation is necessary for growing anything.

    I don't know why you would need two pumps, one pump should do the job. Even cheap pumps will last much longer if you don't let them cycle on and off all the time.
