New Pressurized Water System

I'm currently looking to install a new water system at a lakeside cabin.

Currently we pump lake water up 25ft to a ~300 gal holding tank and then use gravity to get the water to the cabin. Unfortunately the holding tank has sprung a leak(s) so its time for something new.

I'm thinking of putting a diaphram tank under the cabin and then using the current pump is down by the lake (it would be about 20ft from the tank). I thint the only problem I have is the pump doesn't have any type of pressure shut off switch. How big of a deal would it be to hook up a pressure switch to turn the pump on and off?

Any tips or comments on this would be greatly appreciated.

Check out and for great info on pump systems.
It isn't difficult to install a pressure switch on the pump or a pressure tank.
