Anyone have experience with the sta-rite SN series of cast jet pumps.
I'm looking at the 1.5hp STA-Rite SNF-L:

SNF-L Specs

Considering this as an alternative to a Goulds J15S.

It'd be setup with a CSV and a 40/60 switch, largely per recommendations in another thread.
It'd be a primary drinking water supply pump from an above ground tank.

That pump has a max pressure of 67 PSI. It will work fine with a 40/60 switch if you are drawing from an above ground tank. However, if you are lifting from a well there may not be enough pressure left to use a 40/60 switch. Might have to turn down to 30/50.

Thanks. That points out the main difference between that pump and the Goulds J15S, which has a max pressure of 80psi.
Price difference: Goulds J15S $600 (max pressure 80psi @5' lift)
STA-Rite SNF-L: $350 (max pressure 67 at 0' lift)
