I want to fill my 5500 gal. swimming pool with water from my well. One person
told me it was best to let the pump run continuously rather than off and on
to let it cool down after periods of time. This will probably take me a full
day or more to fill.
As long as your well recovery is up to the job, continuous is best.
The pump is cooled by the water and won't heat up as long as there's
water. Are you sure it won't run dry?
That said, it's unlikely that you can get enough water from a normal
hose bib to keep the pump running 100%.
