Conventional Water Well Pump Systems
The conventional water pump (traditional water pump) system is the most common option for selecting a water well pump. These units operate at only two speeds, on and off. A pressurized switch controls the conventional pump system, turning the unit on when a certain pressure level is reached, and likewise, shutting it off once the necessary level is reached.
Residential Water Well Pump System Sizing
A properly designed residential water supply system should deliver water at the desired quantity, quality, and pressure to any outlet on the system during periods of heaviest use. To accomplish this, the peak demand for the home is determined and the well and pump are sized to meet or exceed the demand. If local geological conditions prohibit the development of a water supply with quantity to meet the demand, additional storage facilities are necessary.
Determining Water Well Pump Capacity
A simple method of determining pump capacity is based on the number of fixtures or outlets using water in your home or business. The pump capacity (in gallons per minute or GPM) should equal the total number of fixtures in your home or business.
Conventional Water Well Pump System Benefits:
- A larger tank model produces longer cycles
- Overall length of the pumping cycles being determined by the varying size of tank which you need
- The pump not running while you are consuming water
- Due to its “on” or “off” cycles, helps to conserve water and avoid unnecessary or wasteful usage.
