Re: well to supply two buildings 300 feet apart
Our sportsmen's club has two buildings: Original clubhouse built in the 50s and added onto several times - and another clubhouse built in the late 90s, down by the trap and rifle ranges.
When we built the newer clubhouse, drilled a well down there and installed the water system (3/4 HP submersible pump and a 40 gallon pressure tank). Also ran a 1" black plastic pipe down to the old building and set it up inside, to connect to that water system if needed, but never used it. The buildings are roughly about 500 feet apart.
Old building well eventually wound up being inside when they built another addition in the 60s, two pipe jet pump system w/20 gal. pressure tank.
That building is now demolished, new one underway.
Yesterday I turned on the water thru that 1" line that's been sitting there unused. Temporary set up now for the contractors, it will eventually feed the new building when it's done.
Plenty of pressure/volume.
