3 SQF-3 - Strain? Consequences?
I have a 3 SQF-3 in a well at 360'; static depth has been 60'; I've not pumped below 200'. I'm presently delivering water uphill 35' via 700' of 1" PVC; I'm getting 1.5 gpm. Calculations of head and friction loss at 1.5 gpm result in psi values that are within those that are calculated for the pump's specs; just barely within specs when pumping from 360'. I'm considering extending the delivery another 500 feet (no additional head). What are the consequences I might expect, such as adverse effects on the pump itself? (Power supplied is 180W at 160V.) Thank for your comments.:roll:
