When it comes to well pumps, both constant pressure systems and traditional pump systems can meet your needs. However, there are distinct differences between the two. Just like with any appliance in your home, it’s best to be aware of the advantages and disadvantages of all your options prior to making a purchase. Below, we have provided a simple guide to help you make a decision that’s right for you.

Constant Pressure Systems

If you’re searching for the most up-to-date pressure pump, a constant pressure system is the best of the best. While a traditional water pump can certainly meet your needs, constant pressure systems go above and beyond to eliminate issues and inconveniences. While it is the pricier option, it includes plenty of benefits:

  • Constant, reliable water pressure. Traditional systems, while fully functional, can only pump up to 15 gallons per minute. In comparison, constant pressure systems can pump up to 45 gallons per minute. This means that if you’re washing dishes while someone else in your household is taking a shower, neither of you will experience a severe fluctuation in water pressure. The sensors in these systems are quiet, highly precise and adjust quickly.
  • Lower the size of your water tank. Constant pressure systems operate without a pressure tank. So, you will be able to save space in your home.
  • Less maintenance. This kind of system “soft starts” your well pump. Over time, this helps prevent damage to the inner workings and mechanics of your well pump. You’ll find that these systems don’t require quite as much upkeep as a result and may increase the life of your pump.
  • State-of-the-art diagnostics. Any system in your home that contains more up-to-date technology will function better. A constant pressure system includes complex, highly refined diagnostic systems to assist it in running efficiently.

Traditional Well Pumps

Traditional well pumps might not include all the bells and whistles, but they work well and many owners will be happy with the results. Smaller households that don’t require much daily water usage may prefer traditional well pumps. If some fluctuations in pressure aren’t too bothersome, you’ll find that traditional pumps are just as dependable, like:

  • Cost-efficiency. Simply put, traditional pumps are inexpensive compared to constant pressure systems. Most people prefer to upgrade, and a higher demand hikes up the price of newer technology. However, an older system can run just as well.
