Well pump question

I'm trying to get the specs for my well pump so that I can size a new pressure tank for my system.

It's a Goulds model# 5ES03412 (4" submersible).

I've checked their site, but I can't find this pump.

Is there a way to decipher the model number to get the discharge rate and horsepower?

Also, are there any pressure tanks to stay away from? How's Flotec? Is Amtrol still good?

Thanks all.

Goulds doesn't use this designation anymore, but I believe that you have a 5 gpm, 1/3 hp, 4" submersible pump.
I'd be a little leery of the Flotec. They're cheaper for a reason. Amtrol is still a good tank, as is Myers, the Goulds Hydro-Pro line, and others.
