My wife and I just purchased a fixer upper summer home about 10 hours drive from our home. We plan to use it during summer months only for now. It currently has no running water or electricity. There's money in the budget to run power but it will be a year or two before we can afford a well.

The house sits about 300 feet from a spring fed pond which is on the property. I'm considering what it would take to pump water from the pond up to 55 gallon water storage tank close to in perhaps in the attic of the house.

Would a centrifugal pump be the right tools for this job? Or could someone recommend a suitable pumb for this kind of application?

Once a well has been dilled would it be suitable to reuse the same pump for the well?
