New to living on well, doing bath remodel


All those wells have a high static level compared to the well depth. There is a lot of cold water underneath the motor. I don't know if that is what makes the difference but, it is a lot different than a 300' well with a static at 250'.

Give me figures of depth and static. I will look.

To compute the voume of water in a pipe, you take the area of the pipe times the height of the water.

A 4 inch ID pipe has an area of approximately 0.09 square feet, so 15 feet of water in the pipe would weight .09 * 15 * 62.4 = 80 lbs +/-
Dan, that has nothing to do with what we were talking about.

We where talking about calculating TDH (total dynamic head) and you don't use the "weight" of the water the way you explain it or how Chris thought he had to. And you should know that.

I told him how to convert the "weight" to psi in terms meant to be easy for him to understand; .433 times the height of the column of water to the highest fixture in the system is part of the TDH calculation.

Gary is correct. The weight of water must be converted to psi in order to calculate TDH otherwise the figure would not make sense.




Hey Dave, you are earning your money this week

Thanks
