Subject:  Wells and well pumps Date:  12/9/2012  9:41 AM

I have a well on my property that is not being used. I also have a pond. I want to pump water from the well and let it flow downhill to make a small waterfall for the pond.

The water is about 25 feet down in the well so that's how far I'll need to lift. I don't need much volume, maybe 1-1.5 gallons per minute. I don't need much pressure as the water will flow downhill to the pond.

Can anyone give me some suggestions for electric well pumps that will deliver and the approximate cost? Also, I'd like to determine approximately how much electrictiy I'll use per month with the pump running continuously.

Thanks to anyone with knowledge who responds.
