A centrifugal pump delivers water at the rate of $0.22 m^{3}/s$ from a reservoir at ground level to another reservoir at a height $H$,through a vertical pipe ot $0.2\:m$ diameter. Both the reservoirs are open to atmosphere. The power input to the pump is $90 \:kW$ and it operates with an efficiency of $75\%$.

Fanning friction factor for pipe flow is $f=0.004$. Neglect other head losses.
Take gravitational acceleration, $g=9.8\:m/s^{2}$ and density of water is $1000\: kg/m^{3}$.

The height $H$, in meters, to which the water can be delivered (up to one decimal place) is ________.
