The pressure tank in a water well system creates water pressure by using compressed air to bear down on the water. Because of this pressure, when a valve is opened water is pushed out of the tank through the pipes in your home. When the water in the pressures tank drops below the required amount, a pressure switch is activated turning on the pump. The pump then refills the pressure tank. The combination of the pressure tank, pressure switch and the pump is what allows water to flow through your home.
When choosing a pressure tank you will need to know the gallons per minute. You’ll also need to count the number of plumbing fixtures, including outside spigots, the system needs to service. If you have any more questions feel free to give us a call.
