Pump suggestion for rain collection system?

I've got a cabin on my deer lease with electricity but no water, we've built and plumbed a bathroom and all that's left is creating water pressure. Does anyone have any suggestion for a 120v pressure on demand type of pump? Most of what I'm finding is 12v. It will pump out of a 500 gallon tank at ground level. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

I looked at one just like that, it seemed a little on the weak side. I was hoping someone had set something up with a small hottub pump and some sort of pressure switch or something along those lines

1/2 HP jet pump with a small pressure tank. You can buy them as a package.

Idea Grundfos Pumps

There are several pressure booster pump packages on Amazon.com

One is :Grundfos MQ3-35 96860172 3/4 HP Pressure Booster Pump - 115 Volt

There are several on the market, but this is a good one..

Good luck,

SG

Try one of these I am going to link you to. I use it on my washing unit for cleaning roofs. Plenty of psi to push it through a 200 ft plus hose. I am getting roughly 40ft with little to no wind.

Run your collection to a storage tank and then boost the water out with a small 120v jet pump (1/2hp). PLumb into a 20ish gallon pressure tank with a 30/50 pressure switch (don't forget the pressure releif valve pressure tanks make great bombs). Then plumb into your cabin and you should be good.

When buying a pump you will see the term "foot of head" it is just another way of measuring pressure. It takes 2.31 foot of head to equal 1 psi. Since your tank is at ground level all the force generated by the pump goes straight into pressure. No lifting of the water. This allows you to use a much smaller pump. Any pump that will generate 120 foot of head (50psi) will make your system work just as if you were at your house. The other thing to look at is the pump curve. When you read the information in a pump box you will see what I mean. Stay in the middle of the curve.

I forgot to back up the comment on the pressure relief valve. Do not get cheap and think you don't need that. When Outrigger said "bomb" he is very right. Just look on youtube at water heaters exploding.
