So what are the specs on your 3500 heads? I don't install them (don't install any mini-rotor heads)

Here is another worthy line of jet pumps, the JS series by Goulds. I include this, because I don't see the equivalent info on the Myers website. You may find that a good 1/2 HP jet pump will work after all. Understand, though, that you can't fudge the numbers, and also understand that any pressure losses in the suction pipe plumbing have to be converted to additional suction lift.

I ran a twelve three electrical line for a 220 hook up.

Sight unseen, I don't recommend anything. To run three model 3500 heads, you probably don't need the full output of the HJ100S. I have installed the Myers jet pumps before, so I know they are a reliable product.

here's a question - what's the power to your pump - you do know that a 1HP 'pro' pump is going to pop circuit breakers on a 120-volt line

This is the pump you would recommend?

RE: Myers Shallow Well Jet Pump 28 GPM 1 HP # HJ100S

What is the difference between:

this pump


that pump
they are the same pump, but only the first page is showing the correct pump photo (the second page is showing the 1/2 HP pump from the same series)

The difference that 15 feet of lift makes may be the difference between your existing pump working or not working for the job you have in mind. Or another way to look at it, is that it could make the difference between a 1/2 HP pump being good enough, with the pump by the lake, and a 1 HP pump being needed, if placed 15 feet higher. As for brands, there are the pumps that pros install, with the support they get from their distributors, to pumps you can buy online as reclaimed freight, for hundreds less. One possible quality bargain will be the Water Ace pumps, which are made by Myers, a company that sells to pros.

I install Myers pumps. However, a Red Lion from the big box store would provide you with enough water.

15' of elevation.

From my foot valve to where my pump is going to be placed is 15'. What brand name do you recommend?
