Default Lake Water System

I'm looking for more information on how a lake water system works in terms of components needed/part lists.

I've tried searching online, but may not be searching the correct terms.

Any on here able to help guide me?

Are you looking for a system to pull lake water for lawn irrigation or for drinking or something else?

One shower and two sinks - drinking would be a bonus.

Pump with pressure switch and check valve to a pressure tank to a water heater.
Cold water from pressure tank,
Hot water from water heater.
Use pex for lines it's cheep and ease.
Just the same as a well except the lake is your well.
I wouldn't drink water from a lake.

"Maximum suction lift: 26 ft." What's your elevation above lake level?

Put a screen on the intake end of the hose to prevent lake debris from getting into your system. Doesn't have to be fancy. I put rocks, for weight, in a 5 gallon bucket with as many 1/8" holes as possible drilled in the sides. Secured the intake hose thru a hole in the side, put a lid on it, and lowered it into the lake. I put a gallon jug on the rope, about 2 feet below the surface, and marked the location on my locator. The jug is below prop depth, but easily found if the bucket needs to be raised. We had an issue, at one time, of marker jugs being used as targets by jet skiers and others.

About 20'.

Do you run filters on your system?

We have a sediment filter between the pump and the pressure tank to filter sand and grit. The system at the inlet prevents debris such as algae or underwater plant growth from being sucked into the pump.
