I live in a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home. We use lake water for our domestic water source. We draw about 20' from the footvalve and the distance from the source is 175'. We have a 80 gal pressure tank and want a max of 55psi pressure

We require;
dual voltage
continuous running with out damage as we use this for home water to water lawns and such

Should we use a shallow water pump?
What HP should we use?

I would look at the Gould's J15S shallow well jet pump to see if it may meet your requirements. ... cts_id=549
