Where I live, the water pressure from the water utility is very low (About 8 PSI average). I am considering getting a jet pump with a 33 gallon pressure tank and a 400 gallon water tank for when there is no water at all. Electricity is a major concern because it is very expensive in my area, about $0.25 a KW. I use on average about 100 gallons of water a day.
Which type of jet pump or full setup in terms of HP and Watts would you guys recommend for my setup that would save me on electricity?
Most people around here just use a 1/2 HP well jet pump with the pressure tank and water storage tank. I've been reading much on Cycle Stop Valves which use a small pressure tank and Variable Frequency Drives, but that seems a little overkill.
