Small Cabin Forum / Off-Grid Living / Water System for Hand-dug 10 Foot Well
Author Message
# Posted: 23 Aug 2021 18:34

My grandfather left me some land in upstate NY, and there are several 10-12 foot deep hand-dug wells on the property. They are filled year round, I'd like to setup a pressurized water system to use with my RV as I'm building. There is power on the property. What are some recommendations on a pump to use (Submersible or other), tanks for pressurizing the water, and filtration considerations ? Anyone have a sample design with product recommendations ?

I've looked at Water works pressurized tanks - with Plumb eeze kits but have never worked with them. any suggestions / recommendations would be appreciated.

There is not a one size fits all kit for well pumps. You could use a shallow well centrifugal pump or a submersible, both can be fitted with a pressure tank. In either case you would probably want some protection for a “run dry” situation with a dug well. This site s-life.4/ has a lot of good well and pump info

Power at the property and it's only a 10ft deep well just use one of those chinese 120v submersible well pumps. There about $140. Jet pumps are a pain to prime if going ever need to.
