Just bought a 3000l slimline tank. Water will not be plumbed to the house but only used to water veggie garden, lawn, wash car etc. Looking at attaching 1 or 2 taps but only 1 will ever be in use at any time. It's a suburban garden, the furtherest watering from the tank will be by hose (30m?) or a hose with sprinkler attached.
I phoned the local pump store and husband went in there (& played dumb). We each spoke to a different person. Each has advised a different sized pump. They are either a DAB 82 (60l/min, 462kPa) or a DAB 102 (60l/min, 531kPa). Also given 2 different sizes in Davey being XJ50 (50l/min, 46m head) or a XJ70 (70l/min, 48m head).
I don't know which to go for. Will the smaller pump be enough (either DAB or Davey) or is the bigger pump overkill? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks
