Country Living with potential low capacity and pressure: We will be building soon. Our well is 400 ft. deep with 5 gpm. I use a fair amount of water: plants, shrubbs, cars etc. I was told I could install 2 bladder tanks, or a 1,000 plastic tank with a seperate pressure pump, seperatly plumbed from the domestic water. What do you think?
I would elect to use the second pressure tank. 1000 gallons of water sitting around with no chlorine in it is a bad idea. Or use the tank and install an ozone generator but this is expensive and exotic. You have many options to consider.
