There are many pumping systems, and not every one is right, and not every one is wrong. One key fact in water pumping is that the majority of pumps installed are working away from their duty point - that is, the pump used is the wrong pump for the job. The design of the best system involves an analysis of all the factors concerning the site, and then a decision  can be made as  to the most appropriate system to match those factors.
