A fire sprinkler system for a single building requires a tank for water storage as there is only a well at this project's remote site. We're considering using a diesel pump with a pump house adjacent to an aboveground water storage tank.
What type of fire pump would you recommend for this scenario?
The building is only Ordinary Hazard Group 1, so I'm expecting an approximate pump size of 500 gpm, 75 psi, 50 HP. There will not be much suction pressure since the water storage tank will not be pressurized.
