CONSTANT PRESSURE SYSTEMS
Water Pressure Systems
For many home owners, having constant water pressure isn’t crucial, that is, until their pressure drops off when they need it most. Using a private well is a great source for water that’s reliable – but low water pressure can be an irritating problem. Constant pressure systems installed by Aqua Pump and Well Service are the inexpensive answer.

How the Standard System Works:
The standard system operates with a pressure switch that generally is set with about a 20 psi differential. For example if it was set at 40- 60. The pressure switch would turn on the pump when the pressure goes below 40 and turn off the pump when it gets above 60.
How the Constant Pressure System Works:
Constant pressure systems operate with a Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) The VFD is like a computer that gently speeds up and slows down your water pump as necessary to maintain constant and continuous pressure. You can even set your constant pressure system to mirror city water pressure – delivering all the benefits of a private well water with the reliability of city water.
More information and Benefits of the Constant Pressure System
A constant pressure system will change the speed of your water pump to meet an increasing or decreasing demand for water. The pump then gently shuts off, instead of abruptly turning on and off like a conventional standard system. The drives within a constant pressure system have a built in sleep mode that slowly and softly starts and stops your pump and motor. This reduces the intense torque associated with conventional systems, lessening the wear and tear that can often lead to pump and motor malfunctioning and failure.
This system also protects against dry run, which occurs when a standard pump runs with insufficient water passing the motor. By eliminating dry run, your pump motor won’t overheat and will never need to be repaired due to components melting. Additionally, because of the way a constant pressure system works, you can have a smaller pressure tank with a drastically reduced footprint.
