I have dug an irrigation well (40 feet), and installed this pump: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005X53JC8
It has the following description: Red Lion RJS-75-PREM Shallow Well Jet Pump, Cast Iron, 1-HP 24-GPM
The pump did not come with a power cord, and therefore I'll need to wire up a cord and plug to the pressure switch.
What gauge wire does this pump take?
I current have wired up a computer cable, I'm guessing the individual strands in there are maybe 16 or 18 gauge (no idea, really). I noticed that the chord gets pretty warm when the pump is running.
Should I go with a lower/thicker gauge?
Thank you in advance!
