Also asked, what is the maximum height water can be pumped?
The maximum theoretical suction height of the water, at sea level, is about 10.33 meters. in practice we consider the NPSH of the pump and the pressure losses due to fluid flow. The practical maximum suction height is located around 7 meters at ambient temperature.
Subsequently, question is, how high can a 1/2 HP pump push water? A two-line jet pump can typically raise water from depths of 30-feet to 80-feet, and at water delivery rates of 4 gpm (gallons per minute) (for a 1/2 hp 2-line jet pump serving an 80 foot deep well) to 16 gpm (for a 1 hp 2-line jet pump serving a 30 foot deep well).
Also know, how deep can a pump lift water?
The shallow well jet pumps draw water from one line situated in wells no deeper than a maximum of 25 feet deep. Deep well jet pumps use two lines, one for pulling the water, and one for pushing the water into the delivery system. Deep well jet pumps can pump water from wells that range from 25 to 110 feet deep.
How do I know what size water pump I need?
Measure the diameter of the fountain spout with a tape measure. You will be calculating the gallons per hour, or GPH, by multiplying the diameter by 100. For example, if your fountain spout is 1 inch in diameter: 1 x 100 = 100 GPH, your pump will need to be rated at 100 GPH.
