How Home Water Pump and Pressure Systems Work

Update:03 Feb

  When choosing a water treatment system, it is important to understand the basis of the well water system's function, because if the wrong type of treatment system is used, it may adversely affect the water pressure and flow in the house.

  For example, if the well uses a pressure tank, a water treatment system must be installed after the pressure tank to avoid damage to the Electric Drinking Water Pump.

  Fundamentals of well pumps and pressure systems

  Most well water is automatically pumped out of the ground using submersible pumps or jet pumps, which are located above the ground and pump water from the ground to create water pressure for the house.

  Some well water systems use large storage tanks to store water before pumping it to the house. Other well water systems use gravity feeding and use gravity to provide water pressure to the house.

  In addition to the well itself, the domestic tap water system also has two important components: a pump and a pressure tank.

  Electric Drinking Water Pump

  There are many types and sizes of pumps used in water systems. Some are only designed to remove water from water sources. Others not only remove the water, but force it through the rest of the water system.

  Some pumps are used for special tasks, such as boosting or providing special outlets. The booster pump should be installed behind the water storage tank. If your pump installation plan is incorrect, you will not be able to get a satisfactory water supply service.

  pressure tank

  The pressure tank provides storage for your water system. There are three types of storage tanks:

  Diaphragm air bag canister, maintain permanent isolation between air and water;

  A storage tank that isolates air from water by floats or water (unused in recent years)

  Ordinary steel storage tanks-each type of storage tank has a specific purpose.

  Extra storage space

  Some well owners prefer to arrange additional water storage tanks. Generally speaking, the extra storage capacity for one day of water supply is sufficient.

  In power outages and other emergencies, additional water storage is useful.
