Sizing a well pump, and what is lift?
Posted by Bruce Janis on September 25, 19100 at 21:30:21:
I am building at a very rural area at about 2000 feet elevation.
Ground water is shallow; my well is dug to 3.2m (10.5 feet) and there is a lot of clear, sand-and-clay free water
in gravel ground.
The well is about 50 feet from the house. The floor of the bathroom of the house is about 15 feet higher than ground level
at the well. (So the shower head is about 5 feet above that)

How do I pick the size of the jet pump? The pipes? I can't find this information anywhere, and the local folks
just want to sell the "out of towner" the biggest and most expensive they can supply...
