I'm working on water infrastructure for our camp. Our camp has several water uses -- in our interactivity area, our kitchen, and our misting shower. We're designing the endpoints to be low-usage, but I want the overall infrastructure to be robust.
Last year, we got a 500 gal tank from MECO which mostly worked well, except for two problems:
- The pump burnt out (and so did the backup) -- possibly due to faulty switches.
- The flow switch never seemed to work (perhaps there wasn't enough pressure in the tank to activate it). So we had to manually turn on/off the pump for each use.
- Can anyone recommend a reliable pump? AC or DC...We have a generator or could also run it on a car or marine battery.
- Does anyone have a suggestion on an auto flow switch such that someone can just turn on the endpoint and the pump kicks in? Would a prepressurized accumulator tank help?
