Its going to be a dry summer, my solar well pump setup is no longer working as the water table dropped too low. I need to go with a positive displacement pump instead of an open impeller centrifugal bilge pump. I had a Nemo pump picked out as its the least expensive option I could find. They are on on backorder but should fit pretty well with the panels I have. Its a standard Shurflow type pump that a separate company converts to a submersible.

Thanks, it looks like ram pump which is great if someone has low pressure supply and wants to boost it up, unfortunately I do not have low pressure supply. The ram pumps have even fewer parts

You will like the Nemo. Mine is only at 25ft but has pumped a lot of water.

I got the Nemo and was ready to hook it up and my poly tank sprung a leak. I need to fix it before the Nemo goes in. The tank was free about 20 years ago and I really do no know how old it is. It didn't have a steel frame and sagged when it was full and is leaking at a crease. Worse case is road trip to pick up a tank with cage on craigslist. 

It does look like a nice unit.
