    You will get the pump pressure from the pump curve and knowing the flow. If you are looking for required head or pressure, then it will totally depend on the system and the required flow.

    You have to start with your system. You have to know what your piping system will provide in terms of head loss. Your piping and flow rate will dictate the pump selection. Pumps do not produce pressure, they produce flow. Your piping system creates the pressure as a result of resistance to the flow.
