180 foot rise from well location to home - design help needed
Posted by Mkandl on August 30, 19100 at 17:32:26:
I am building a new home at my farm and it will be 180 feet above (and 2400 feet away from) the current well location. THis presents about 90 psi of additional water pressure to the 50 psi house needed pressure (140 psi total). I want to control the pump from the well location due to the long distance from the home.

Will it be reliable to pipe this distance underground with 150 psi pressures on the pipe? Schedule 40 or something else?

I was thinking of putting the pressure switch (and tank)at the house and run 14 gage (or lighter?) control wire to the well with a relay switch to switch the local power to the pump... Any better way?

THanks for the guidance!
