Constant Pressure Water Systems
Why is Pressure Important?
Conventional well water systems are typically designed to work with a pressure switch, set at 40-60 PSI (pounds per square inch), and a storage tank. The pump turns on, at full capacity, when the pressure drops to 40 PSI to fill a pressurized storage tank. Once the tank is filled to capacity, the pump shuts off and water demand is met by the storage tank. The pump runs at one speed. When you use multiple sources of water (example: shower & dishwasher), your water pressure drops quickly causing fluctuations in pressure and water flow to diminish.
