Residential Constant Pressure/VFD Systems

As a homeowner, you are always on the lookout for appliances and systems that will be both energy-efficient and cost-effective. Paramount Well Service installs and services constant pressure systems in wells in homes across New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania, including Hunterdon, Somerset, Mercer, Monmouth, Middlesex, and Bucks Counties. Unlike most pumps which just run constantly at full speed, constant pressure systems, frequently referred to as VFD systems (variable frequency drive systems), are able to slow down or speed up the pump to match (or meet) the demand, which gives you control over the pressure of your water supply.

Not only do these VFD pumps give you more control over your home’s water, but it also feels more like “city water” pressure. A pump controller, or VFD, is a computerized device that can change the speed of your well pump to meet your water demand, ensuring your pump delivers constant water pressure from your well. This differs from conventional systems that run all the time at full speed and require more energy. A VFD controls the frequency of electrical power supplied to the pump, compared to otherwise fixed-speed motors.

The “soft start” feature of VFD pumps is one of the most important parts of the system. This slowly starts the pump and will gradually bring your pump up to speed as needed. Not only is the soft-start feature energy-efficient, but it also significantly extends the life of the pump. This removes the torque of the motor starting off with a strong force that causes the pump to slam and beat off the sides of the well, which puts additional wear and tear on the unit and wire. Most of the deterioration in the submersible motor comes from the startup of the pump due to the amperage draw.

If a problem arises with your pump, our well pumps that ensure constant water pressure have features built-in to protect the pump from issues such as dry run, high amperage, and low voltage that will shut the pump down. Built-in diagnostics let our expert technicians know exactly what the malfunction is. VFD systems have built-in surge protection to avoid electrical burn-outs. Overall, the benefit of variable frequency water is optimum performance, longevity, efficiency, and possible energy savings.
