How far can you pump water from a well?
Consequently, how far will a well pump push water?
You can't suck the water up more than about 25 feet, but once you get the pump behind the water you can push it virtually forever.
Secondly, how long can you run a hose on well water? There are 1440 minutes in a day, so 14,400 gallons in 24 hours. So figure about 48 hours to fill it from one source. You could check with your city if they have a water district.
Herein, how far can a well be from the house?
How do you pump water from a well?
At the jet, the increase in water velocity creates the partial vacuum that draws standing well water into the second pipe and then back into the pump and plumbing system. Deep-well jet pumps use both the suction at the jet to bring water into the system and pressure applied by the impeller to lift the water.
