Someone told me I will burn up my pump with a 1” supply line going 300’ and 50’ uphill. I should increase my supply line to 1-1/4” to 2’’. Is there any true to that? if so what size line and would a 1 hp pump still work?The 50' elevation to the house means you need to add 20 PSI to the pump pressure. So, instead of 40/60 you need a 60/80 pressure switch. Even at that pressure you still only need a 10 gallon size pressure tank when using a CSV like with the PK1A kit. Without the CSV I would use an 86 gallon size pressure tank, which still won't do as good a job as the CSV and small tank.
OP said 300 foot run and 50 foot rise. With .43 PSI per foot, that would be a 21.5 PSI drop. That means you need a pump that can produce 21.5 more PSI than the desired PSI at the top of the hill, so if 80 PSI is desired, the pump would need to produce 101.5 PSI. I don't think you will find a jet pump that can do that.Have any idea what the difference in height is switch to house. 2.31 ' per lb of pressure. 150' rise add 65 lbs to your switch cut in and cut out. Want 40 - 60, 105 - 125. Going to need a different control.,
That should produce a constant pressure of around 50 PSI, so less than what your current pump produces. Is it a multi-level home or a bungalow? At what elevation is the 67 PSI measured? Remember that you lose .43 PSI per foot of elevation and depending on the pipe diameter, you may also have friction loss.I ordered a 1 1/2hp gourd j15s and a pk1a with a pressure switch 60/80.
This is awkward, but...
