A typical water pump system for a house produces a volume of approximately 10 GPM at 60-65 PSI. The common misconception that “if I have a well instead of a city water system, my pressure and volume will not be as good” is simply wrong! IF a system is engineered properly, there is no reason you shouldn’t have just as good, and in many cases better, pressure than the average municipal water system. Besides the standard system that incorporates the use of a pressure tank and pressure switches, we also install constant pressure systems that do not fluctuate more than 2 pounds. Many times, low pressure at the faucet is caused by:
- Poor or undersized plumbing
- Water treatment equipment that is undersized or partially plugged up. (Note: Cartridge filters can reduce pressure when partially plugged or if they are of a very fine micron size)
- Water Saver Orifices – these devices are found on almost all shower heads, faucets, etc. Though they may be helpful in reducing water usage, they can decrease flow and pressure drastically. Many times these can be removed by a plumber.
Mount Water Well Drilling uses top-of-the-line equipment on all of our pump systems. These systems are designed to last and come with a three-year warranty in most all cases. Our pressure tanks come with a five-year warranty. All pipe and connections are made up of stainless, brass, plastic, or copper (no galvanized or black steel), so corrosion is kept to a minimum.
