Answer: 
Hi Jack,
Thats a good Question, depending on the size of the well jacket. the type of a pump use can be an above ground jet pump or a submersible deep well. The first question to be asked is what is the well supplying, this is important becuse at 100 ft you will need to know the GPM or Gallons per minute. on a typical 2 bath house the requirement is around 7 to 10 GPM. on a 3-4 bath house the GPM's should be around 15. The next issue is how deep is the water? the well is 100' but the water level can be at 25' so you would have 75' of draw down. with tha being said look at page 3928 in the 403 book a 2EHL7 will be a submersible pump with control box. this will be just part of what you need.. but its a start.
The HP is irrevelevent it is the GPM at elevation that makes the difference. but 3/4 to 1 HP should work.

Answer: 
It all depends on what you are doing with the water up top and how much flow you need. ie. are you running irrigation, filling a stock pond, or filling tanks?

Answer: 
I would try a Franklin submersible well pump vs. a shore mounted pump it will be more efficient. Just size the pump correctly and have a properly sized intake screen.

I have a oil change shop and the pump and system for sending the used motor oil from the pit to the storage outside has stopped working after sometime. it seems that the way it was originally set up was all wrong to begin with. So I would like to know what an efficient pump would be for my circumstance.

Answer: 
A submersible pump like is used in a well works great, just put it on a stand so it's above the bottom of the lake. Just use a pressure switch in the line to cut off power to the pump when the pressure gets too high such as when a valve is closed.

Answers

Answer: 
For this type of application we are going to need more information like pie size, pipe length, how many elbows, how many valves, how high you are pumping? Voltage and phase to the motor? What inlet pressure and gallon per minute? What pressure are you trying to reach? Please feel free to contact your local Grainger store and have them transfer you to Product Support for pumps.

Answer: 
The pump must be sized to the lift or head. How far to the highest point of the loop? What is the design volume of the system? Most condenser loops use centrifugal pumps.
The Regulator must be sized for the highest volume expected for the equipment being cooled. You will also need to understand the wetted surface requirements of the cooling tower, it may be necessary to use a bypass if this is the only unit on this loop.
You might want to look at another design for your system, like changing out controls to handle the head pressure of the existing loop, or if this is the only unit needing lower pressure on this loop install a secondary loop with a heat ex-changer.
I hope this gives you some ideas.

Answers

Answer: 
Different pumps use different methods, small pumps like Armstrong and Bell and Gossett have kits with the parts but in most cases I would recommend their Seal bearing assembly they are easy to install even with limited experience.
Larger 1 HP plus pumps must be disassembled the new bearings pressed into the housing and new seals installed. This is very technical and should only be done by persons with good mechanical skills. I hope this helps.
