Water Pressure Pump
I looked through the forum and could not find anything relating to my situation. Feel free to direct me if there is one I missed. I have a lake cabin that uses a gas trash pump to pump water to an elevated water tank that feeds a shower, sink and kitchen sink using gravity alone. As you can guess water pressure is next to nothing. I am wanting to add a water treatment system so we can drink the water from that same tank. This treatment system requires at least 40 PSI to push water through it’s various filters. As of yet, we do not have a solar power system yet but I am currently working out my power requirements. One of which is powering a pump that will add water pressure. Correct me if I’m wrong but I am thinking all I need is a pump similar to what RV’s use running off 12V, hooked in line that only turns on when it detects a draw. I need to determine what equipment I need and then how much power will be required to run it.
