Constant Pressure Systems

Private water wells can experience inadequate or low pressure for various reasons:

  • low water levels
  • new irrigation system
  • increased water usage

Conventional Well Pumps vs Constant Pressure Well Pump Systems

If you are using a conventional well pump instead of a constant pressure well pump, then you are probably familiar with fluctuating or low water pressure that occurs during everyday tasks like watering the garden, showering or running the dishwasher. A conventional well pump will give you a 20 pound variable in pressure, leading to low water pressure from your well system.

The constant pressure system will speed up or slow down the pump motor according to water demand. This will allow you to wash laundry, water the garden, and run the shower simultaneously without diminishing water flow.

A constant pressure well pump system operates with a variable frequency drive controller that automatically monitors household demand. Like the cruise control on a car, the variable frequency drive speeds up or slows down the pump depending on your household water requirements. The result is reliable, constant pressure where and when you need it.

Prairie State Water Systems, Inc. has answered many questions about well pumps and pressure. Read the answers to frequently asked questions. Contact us online to learn if a constant pressure well pump system meets your household needs.

The advantage of constant pressure systems

  • Support high volume needs
  • Variable speed monitors demand
  • Mechanical stress on the pump is reduced
  • Constant pressure regardless of fluctuation
  • Saves energy consumption and costs
  • Save space with a smaller pressure tank as needed
  • Can easily be expanded for future needs
