Storage Tanks and Booster Pumps for Weaker Well Systems

A well system is a great way to provide your home with clean, fresh water. However, if you have a weaker well system, you may experience problems with water pressure. This can be especially noticeable during times of high demand, such as when multiple people are showering or washing dishes at the same time.

One way to improve water pressure in a weaker well system is to install a storage tank and booster pump. A storage tank provides a reserve of water that can be used to supplement the flow from your well. A booster pump increases the water pressure, so that it is sufficient for your home's needs.

Storage Tanks

Storage tanks come in a variety of sizes and materials.

The size of the tank you need will depend on the number of people in your household and the amount of water you use each day. A good rule of thumb is to choose a tank that can hold at least twice the amount of water your well can produce in an hour.

Storage tanks can be made of a variety of materials, including plastic, metal, and concrete. Plastic tanks are lightweight and easy to install, but they are not as durable as metal or concrete tanks. Metal tanks are more durable, but they are also more expensive and heavier. Concrete tanks are the most durable, but they are also the most expensive and difficult to install.

Booster Pumps

Booster pumps are available in a variety of sizes and capacities.

The size of the pump you need will depend on the size of your storage tank and the desired water pressure. Booster pumps can be either jet pumps or centrifugal pumps.

Jet pumps are less expensive than centrifugal pumps, but they are also less efficient and can be noisy. Centrifugal pumps are more expensive, but they are also more efficient and quieter.

Storage Tank and Booster Pump Installation

The installation of a storage tank and booster pump is a relatively straightforward process.

We'll first help choose a location for the storage tank. The tank should be located on a level surface and should be protected from the elements. The tank should also be close to the well and the house.

Once the location has been chosen, the tank must be installed. The tank should be placed on a concrete slab or a bed of gravel. The tank should also be anchored to the ground to prevent it from floating away in the event of a flood.

Once the tank is installed, the booster pump must be connected. The pump should be connected to the intake and discharge lines of the tank. The pump should also be connected to the electrical supply.

Once the pump is connected, it must be tested. To test the pump, turn on the water supply and open a faucet. The pump should start automatically and the water pressure should increase.

Regulating Household Water Pressure

Once the storage tank and booster pump are installed, you can regulate your household water pressure by adjusting the pressure switch on the pump. The pressure switch is a device that turns the pump on and off when the water pressure reaches a certain level.

To increase the water pressure, adjust the pressure switch so that the pump turns on at a higher pressure. To decrease the water pressure, adjust the pressure switch so that the pump turns on at a lower pressure.

It is important to note that the water pressure should not be set too high. High water pressure can damage your plumbing fixtures and appliances. It is also important to note that the water pressure should not be set too low. Low water pressure can make it difficult to take a shower or wash dishes.

Benefits of Using a Storage Tank and Booster Pump

There are several benefits to using a storage tank and booster pump in a weaker well system. The first benefit is that it can improve water pressure. This can be especially beneficial during times of high demand.

Another benefit of using a storage tank and booster pump is that it can extend the life of your well. By reducing the number of times your well pump has to turn on, you can extend its lifespan.

Finally, using a storage tank and booster pump can also help to conserve water. By storing water in a tank, you can reduce the amount of water that is wasted during times of low demand.
