Seeking info for a shallow well pump 12 volts

HairfarmHairfarm Solar Expert Posts: 225 ✭✭✭
Does anyone have a recommendation for a 12 volt shallow well pump (above surface) that will work with my 80gal pressure tank. In the neighborhood of 4-10gpm. The pumps I've seen are mostly 24 volt and don't seem to use cutoff switches.

How do others on this forum pump water to a pressure tank using a 12 volt pump?

thanks,

    How deep to the water surface? I know you can pump ~20' at sea level--But adding strainer, foot valve, priming, and small air leaks--And lifting water by suction becomes a real pain.

    BB,
    It would only draw water from an above ground 2500 gal water tank. It's pulling fresh water from only 10 feet away. No lifting at all.
