After drooling over the Well Manager system to manage our low yield well, I have decided to try to duplicate that particular system at the lowest cost possible. I would have purchased one of these systems but, with the economy the way it is, it is just not in the cards. I just cannot afford it.

I am "stuck" on one aspect of the build, and that would be whether to install a 1/2 HP jet pump or a submersible inside the tank. I would like to regulate the system at 50 PSI with the use of a Cycle Stop Valve, but I am not sure if the jet pump will supply that type of pressure. The set up in the drawings are based off of Cycle Stop Valve's PSide-kick. I will probably use my current 20 gallon pressure tank, but I am not sure...

Here is what I come up with from Microsoft Paint...







I have no experience with the jets, and since it would be installed with the atmospheric pressure of the tank pushing water in, rather than sucking, would it create more pressure? By the drawings, the easier route probably would be to go with the jet pump, but I hear that the submersible is great for pressure and efficiency. Any thoughts from the professionals?
