What is a Water Well Pump?
A water pump pushes or lifts water from below the ground into your home. These come in two different varieties, including jet and submersible pumps. Submersible pumps are installed below the water level so any periods of drought won’t impact them. These are most common in households today. Meanwhile, jet pumps are used in wells that are around 4 inches in diameter or less.
What is a Water Well Pressure Tank?
Pressure tanks compress the air in the tank when water is pumped into it until the air reaches a specified level. This level resides between 40-60 pounds per square inch (PSI). When somebody turns on a faucet, pressure pushes water throughout the entire plumbing system until the pressure drops to 20-40 PSI and the well pump kicks on. When the faucet is turned off, the pressure builds again until it hits 40-60 PSI.
