3 Reasons to Equip Your Well With a Constant Pressure VFD System

As New Jersey and Bucks County’s leading providers of residential well services, we know what it’s like to deal with low water pressure, high utility bills, and costly pump repairs. That’s why we dedicate ourselves to providing cutting-edge solutions that allow homeowners to take control of their water supply. A constant pressure system, also known as a Variable Frequency Drive (VFD), allows you to do just that. With a VFD, you get better water pressure, lower energy costs, and a longer life for your well’s pump. Let’s take a closer look. 

Take Control of Your Water Pressure

A VFD’s purpose is to control the speed of your pump so that it matches the demand for water in your household. In other words, as you use more or less water throughout the day, the pump will speed up or slow down to keep your water pressure stable. This will allow you to enjoy tap water that flows consistently like “city water.”

Save on Energy Costs

By controlling the speed of the pump in your well with a VFD, you use far less energy than you would without the pump controller. Your constant pressure system also comes with a “soft start” feature, which saves energy by starting the pump off slow and gradually bringing it up to speed as demand increases. This is a much more efficient process than simply running the pump at full speed indefinitely.

Extend the Life of Your Pump

Did you know that most of the wear and tear experienced by a well pump is caused by the amperage draw during startup? With a constant pressure system managing the startup and running speed of your pump, depreciation is slowed down tremendously, and you get much more life out of your pump. In other words, you can save money on both energy and maintenance costs by equipping your well pump with a VFD pump controller. 

When we perform residential water well repairs in Bucks County or New Jersey, one of the most common issues we encounter is a pump malfunction. It’s no surprise, considering the amount of abuse sustained by the average well pump on a regular basis, but it doesn’t have to be that way.
