solar pump with trickle tank
Any one using this combo out there for home water? I have an electric pump with a regular ol' pressure tank (55 gallon tank I'd guess) but the idea of this combo sounds like a winner; first the pump is solar and then the trickle storage method uses less electric (even if solar sourced that would still save on the size of soalr panel required I'd say). Only draw back I can think of would be the need to elevate tank for pressure (any ideas as to how much of an elevation needed for good pressure??) and the large size of the tank needed.
