I am getting ready to settle on a house. Never had well water in my life so I am really unfamiliar with how it works. I do understand that you need electricity to pump water from the well or else no water, no flushing the toilet, no shower. Here's my big question... Do I need a generator for the well pump? If so, how big should I go for (I've looked at generators and some are a little pricey)? I have no idea about watts, amps or any of that. It's a small house, 1100 sq ft, just me so it's not like I have a whole family to manage. Here's my other question, if I get a generator, should it cover some major appliances? Fridge, stove/microwave (right now I have an electric stove), certain lights/outlets? Advice would be helpful so if I do buy one, I don't go too small for even my well or too large and end up wasting my money.
