adding a water tank to well system
Adding a water storage tank to an existing well system
This is my first post on this forum. I've tried searching for an answer but couldn't find what I was looking for.
I have a well that produces good quality water just not very much of it. A test back in March showed just over 1 gpm output. Today I ran a short hose wide open and I ran out of water after just 15 minutes. I measured the output of the hose with a couple of buckets and my watch and the output varied btw 7 and 8 gpm during that 15 minutes. The well is 80 feet deep and the pump is at about the 70' level inside the 6" casing. The pressure tank is 40 gallons (nominal) and it turns the pump on at 30 psi and off at 50 psi.
I'd like to add a 2000 gal above ground storage tank. I'd like to place it 50' from the well. The existing submersible pump is a half HP model that's wired with 12/3 cable on a 15amp/220v circuit.
After placing the tank I'd use the existing submersible pump to fill the tank. A second pump would be used in or outside of the storage tank to supply the house. I could also move the pressure tank next to the storage tank.
I can't find any pump company that will do it for me. they all want to redrill another well ($5,000.00) does anyone have an idea how to do this? Any suggestions are welcome.
