Flow rate thru a 3' well point
Can anyone tell me how many gpm's a 36" well screen is capable of flowing . The local well supply specialist in my area tells me the limiting factor in a wells gpm is the strata which the point sits in and not the point,he tells me a 36" point is capable of at least 30 gpm , needless to say I dont believe him, anyone have any opinions? my well is producing about 11 gpm, I need 15 gpm to make my irrigation system function properly/ how about driving a second point & joining them w/ a manifold?. Also I have a 1 1/2 h.p. Goulds j15s pump that is supossedly capable of 17.6 gpms at a static water level of 10 ft. My static water level is 8 ft. How can I get the full 17.6 gpm's out of this pump?
