    Need specs for new pump

    I need specs for a new pump and pressure tank.
    The well is in the mountains of western NC and was installed in 1983, is 200 feet deep with 49' of steel casing. At time of installation it had 20 gpm. This info was passed on to me by well installation company.
    Presently the well has a 1 HP pump and does not serve the four houses on line adequately. We have low pressure, rusty color, smelly hot water, and coliform bacteria.
    The well has been shocked twice but coliform returns so I use a ultraviolet system to purify the water and cartridges to filter out the rusty stuff. I want to deal with the pressure first then the water quality.
    Thanks,

    Howard

    The 20KS15 1.5hp 20 gallon per minute pump will use all the water you have in the well and give plenty of pressure. As for the coliform bacteria, I would post in the Water Quality Forum here. There are a few guys that can tell you how to deal with that.
