Question about Cars & Trucks
There is not enough information in this post
pumps ( centrifugal) have a suction height and a discharge ( head height)
so if you are sucking from a tank at ground level then the head height is the determining factor
if you have to suck from below ground level then the suction height also will determine the pump required
it will be best if you take the parameters ( suction height, head height, pipe length from pump to tank base and flow rate required in gallons per hour) along to a pump and irrigation specialist shop and from the performance charts that relate to pumps they will be able to recommend a pump that will handle the job and fit well inside those parameters
Too small a pump will struggle to do the job and although a pump that will handle 10% extra would be a good pump anything larger would be a waste --power consumption wise
I would not recommend a general hard ware shop for the pump until you know what capacity pump you need and then the hardware shop may have cheaper units than the pump shop
