How to calculate whether the pump I'm using is suitable for my system? I want to fill a water tank from a river to the tank up hill. The head from the pump to the tank is approx. 50meter. The distance and pipe I'm going to lay is approx. 100meter from pump to the tank. Which mean approx. 45deg diagnal. I'm using a 1inch size poly pipe to bring the water from pump to the tank. Is it ok to use a 6.5hp pump? Any help in calculation?
