I recently, with the help of a friend in the water biz, changed an old
1HP jet pump out for a 1HP Submersible (2-wire 240/1-phase).
I want great pressure and volume from my more efficient submersible.
I have a bladder storage tank (about 1-year old) about 18 inches in
diameter x 55 inches high.
I have been setting the pressure at 20-40 but find that I would like
more pressure in the house.
I do water the lawn and small garden in the Summer, but for the most
part, I just bathe and wash clothes during the rest of the year.
Also...I travel as a sales person and I want to know how to protect
myself against having a pipe burst and then have my well running for
hours and hours until I come home.
I am told that in my area (Gridley, Butte County, CA) that there is
ample water, so I don't think I would run the pump dry.
What is the high tech stuff available.
Another thing... I would like to have an LED indicator in the house
when the pump is running. The circuit breaker is inside the home and
there is a secondary fused switch disconnect in the home as well. Is
there a way to switch an LED on when there is current flow?
