What pump i need to get water to tank?

The House well 45 feet deep. Water is rising and lowering daily about 5 to 9 feet.the house is 3 storied.the water tank is at the top and is about 30 feet from ground and about 60 feet from water. What type of pump will be perfect for pulling water from 35 feet and sending water to the tank. The water pump cannot be fixed right on top of the well due to design problem and it is to be fixed 10 feet away from the well at floor.

A couple of things that are pertinent to your situation. One-is the well drilled, or a very deep dug well? It matters in terms of the type of pump to be used. Keep in mind that a pump is sized in terms of total dynamic head.

Meaning, from the bottom of the well, or rather 7ft from the bottom, to the highest point to which the water must go. You want the pump to function in the middle of it’s performance curve if at all possible to prevent “starving” the system and “cycling” the pump. Horizontal travel really doesn’t matter much. The size of the pipe does matter, most typical installations use 1 1/4″ poly pipe which coincidentally is usually the size of the connection of the submersible style pump.

Two-well recovery is important also. How many gallons per minuet does the well recover? With a submersible pump it is very easy to EMPTY the well and suck gravel and sand if the pump is over-sized for the situation. So use caution. My best suggestion would be to contact a speciality wholesale plumbing supply in your area to help you size the pump correctly.

Just provide them with this information and they would probably be happy to help. If not, just take you business elsewhere.
