What are the determining factors to whether you use a 30-50 or 40-60 pressure switch?

I am going to install my pump this weekend (if it doesn't rain). I purchased a Sta-Rite H series 1/2 HP, 230 V, 10 GPM pump which will be installed in my 35' deep brick well. I am using a 1" line attached to a pitless adapter(you need to see the mechanism I welded together to mount the pitless adapter 4' down in the well. Even I am impressed with it!!) I will then trench the line the necessary 200' to get it to my building. Once inside the building I will attach a Commercial water filter, pressure tank etc.

Thanks for all the help on this site. I'll let you know how smoothly it goes.

Leonard

1. Depends on how much pressure you would like in your shower.
2. Depends on the resistance of the 1" line for 200'.
3. Depends on what was in stock at HD or Lowes.

1. Don't have a shower.
2. Not much.
3. Didn't buy the pump at HD or Lowes and probably won't buy the pressure switch there either.

So in other words, it really doesn't matter??

Not with that pump, it will do as much pressure as you need.

You might want to look into the cycle stop valve.

And I'm really glad you didn't but the pump at those awful places.
