- Each floor is 12 feet in height.
- I already have the pump (Centrifugal Regenerative Self Priming 1HP Peripheral Type, Self Priming - 180sec At 3m STATIC SUCTION LIFT) and would like to know which is the best location to install it for maximum water intake to the overhead tank. The water Supply is only available for a limited period everyday and the goal is to achieve maximum water to the overhead tank.
- The Water supply line provides water from a bigger (8inch) main line but water pressure from it is not adequate to pump up water on top level. (Water pressure only enough to supply water to first floor and that too with reduced pressure.)
- The water pipe from main supply to pump and from pump to overhead tank is 1/2 inches wide.
1). Which position of the water pump in the above situation provide maximum water output to the overhead tank?
2). Will using thicker 1 inch pipe after pump (the input will remain 1/2 inch) make any difference to suck maximum water in?
