That pump will still work fine at 40/60 pressure.  At 10' lift and 50 PSI it delivers about 15 GPM, which should be plenty.

Will the j10s procure the pressure I need?  Also how do you calculate for the depth on the chart?

I am not sure the J5SH will pump enough water to supply all your needs.  But the J15S maybe quite a bit more than you need.  Maybe you could split the difference and use a J10S?

Cary,

Had a few setback and am looking to order the pump this week.  Still torn, given the situation and pretty big cost difference between the j15s and j5sh. I’m really torn what to do.  Given the setup I posted in the first post do you feel the j5sh will be sufficient? 

Thanks,

Mike

Reviews / Happy Camper even though Driller went Negative
« Last post by Cary Austin on January 11, 2019, 08:20:47 AM »
I have a new home with a new irrigations system. The Irrigation system has 13 zone with 6 heads on each zone at a total of 18 gpm. I have a close friend that is in the irrigation business that told me that when I had a well drilled to have them install a Cycle Stop Valve.


When I contracted with a well driller for a new well and I asked him about the Cycle Stop Valve he immediately went negative. So I just dropped it. We drilled to 410' and installed a 3hp pump putting out about 30gpm.

After the well was installed and the irrigation system was on, the pump
would cycle on and off about every 4 or 5 minutes. This would go on for 4½ hours every morning. Common sense told me this was going to cause premature failure of the submersible pump.


So against my drillers advise, I installed the CSV125-3. Now the pump comes on at 40psi, pumps up to 50psi and stays there the entire time that the irrigation system is running. Once the irrigation system turns off, the pressure goes to 60psi and the pump shuts off.


*Everything works just like your website said it would. *


*I am a very happy camper.*


Thanks

So it looks like this unit has cap tubes. Do those work ok for both heat pump mode and ax mode?

I am guessing you are talking about a check valve.  Picture maybe?

Why is there 2 pressure valves on each side? Cant find any information about this? One is the normal in Line type of valve and the other has a bleed nipple on it.

Yeah the switch on the pump is wired around.
