Need a cheap water pump
I am trying to find a water pump for a project.
I want to build a floating platform out of 4inch PVC pipe.
And put a water wheel on it.
I want the water wheel to drive a water pump.
Since the pump is at the water level it doesn't need much suction.
But it needs to push the water a vertical distance of about 40 feet.
I can float the water wheel out into the current
of the river behind our house and anchor it there.
Then it can just sit there and pump water up to my house.
I want the water for things like the garden or any thing else we plant.
Or we are thinking of getting an above ground pool.
But we have a well and can't use it to that extent.
The river is about 450 feet from the house.
So it is just a little too far to run electric.
Now I just need a source for a water pump.
Probably need a belt driven pump, but will listen to ideas.
Needs to be very cheap, as I don't have a lot to spend on this project.
