Energy useage of a water pump
I know there is a water pumping section but my question is about energy useage. Just had to replace my well pump ( ) and the ratings dictated that I move from the 3/4 HP pump that was installed, to a 1 HP pump. The reason is the pump depth @ 340 feet. Anyway, the change meant an increase of about 25% in amps, but the gallons-per-minute doubled so theoretically it will recharge the system in half the time. So this should mean an overall reduction in the energy used, right?
