We are designing a warehouse which has a system demand of about 150 psi at 2,000 gpm.
There is an existing facility with a 150 psi @ 1,000 gpm rated pump installed approximately 1/4-mile (350 m) from the warehouse. We are planning to add a new 150 psi pump at 1,000 gpm near the warehouse roughly 65-feet (20 m) from it.
Is there any code limitation we might hit to serve one building with two separate pumping stations installed remote from each other?
How would you recommend we set the pump operation sequence for the two pump rooms?
Each pump room will have an electric, diesel, and jockey pump. Thanks in advance.
