would like more info on the 1hp and 1.5.. 18gs10412c 230 volt single
phase 3 wire,4"pump, 1 and an quarter npt Also 1hp and 1.5hp on 25gs15412c I have 10gauge wire to control box. Three wires from old well pump that looks good. No ground I don't think. 24O' feet of schedule 8O 1- quarter pipe. I want to use wire and pipe again. I want to install an irrigation system. I have 171' frontage by 9O' wide . I may set the pump drop 200 or 22O'.
Question; what depth will those pumps,pump gpm at those depths and can I use my wire with your 1 phase 23O volt motors.I will use a 2O gallon pressure tank . A 2hp sta-rite motor came out of well that was used for a peach packing house. Also which motor would you suggest that would do the job? I
appreciate any inf given. Sincerely Arthur

if you follow the link, you will find a PDF containing the performance curves for both pumps in question. Normally, dependent upon the age of the wire, I would not recommend using the same pump wire. You never know if or where there may be a nick in the wire that may cause the pump to fail.
