Baller BraceMaker Posted March 24, 2014 Baller Share Posted March 24, 2014 How much water could a wind mill conceivably pump? "For a 10 acre ski lake, using a loss of 6 inches a month, surface area of 435600 square feet, that is a loss of about 1.63 million gallons. With John's pump adding 900 GPM, that's about 30 hours of pumping, or an hour a day every day." 900 GPM for 1/hr a day - vs a lower capacity wind pump but would run all day/night if there were prevailing winds. Sized appropriately it could meet demands - if it saved ~10 grand a year it could pay itself down rapidly. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
