Conventional Well Pump Systems


How it works


Home well systems run on typically 40 to 60 psi of tank pressure. The pump in your well runs at a constant speed. Its job is to keep the pressure in your tank between 40 psi and 60 psi. When the pressure in your tank drops to 40 psi, the pump begins to run and continues until the pressure reaches 60 psi and shuts off. As you use water in and around your home the pressure in the tank drops, once the tank pressure reaches 40 psi the cycle begins again.

Problems can occur when you high water usage at. Water pressure drops quickly, causing your shower to slow down, your washer to fill more slowly and water flow in general falls off. This is typical operation. There are new constant pressure systems that help you avoid these issues.

With a constant pressure system as water demand increases, the pump speed increases to meet demand and when water demand decreases, the pump speed will decrease as well. The pump only runs as much as necessary to meet demand, which saves you money. In addition, constant pressure systems use smaller storage tanks; we can mount smaller and lighter tanks off the floor, saving floor space.
