- Submersible Pumping Systems
- Booster Systems
- Constant Pressure Systems
Traditional Well Systems work by storing pre-pumped water in a pressure tank. Pressure Tanks usually range in between 20 and 60 gallons. Unfortunately, people often use more than 60 gallons at a time, and so the pump must run quite often to keep a consistent water pressure going to the home. This causes excessive wear on your well pump. The answer is installing a storage tank system with booster pump to your well system. This only requires your well pump to engage when the water level in the tank drops below a preset level, saving wear and tear on your pump. A common example is shown below.
Other Advantages to a Storage tank system
- Sulfur gas removal: Well water has a lot of dissolved sulfur gas that gives water a “rotten egg” smell. The storage tank will allow the gas to vent off. Just like carbonation in a soft drink, when the water is not under pressure, the gas will “boil” off.
- Dependability: The pump in the well will start about 1/20th of the time. Starts are very hard on pumps and should be limited as much as possible. This water well system will double or triple the life of the average pump. Additionally, because the well pump is discharging the water into this “zero-pressure” storage tank, you can use a smaller pump in the well than with a non-storage tank water well. Smaller pumps last longer and cost less to replace.
- Backup System: This system is equipped with a backup. If the well pump is unable to fill the tank, the customer is notified, and the reserve water is used until the well can be fixed.
- Better pressure and flow: Many water wells do not provide the flow and/or pressure that you desire. The storage tank can fix this problem.
- Gravity fed system: If the tank is installed uphill from the home, you will have water even when the power is off.
- Sediment removal: The tank allows sediment to fall out of the water without restricting the pressure. The tank also removes iron from the water. The tank can hold several hundred gallons of sediment before it needs to be cleaned. Cleaning is easily done with a siphon hose.
Types of Irrigation SystemsThere are many different types of irrigation systems, depending on how the water is distributed throughout the field. Some common types of irrigation systems include:
Water is distributed over and across land by gravity, no mechanical pump involved.
Water is distributed under low pressure, through a piped network and applied to each plant.
A type of localized irrigation in which drops of water are delivered at or near the root of plants. In this type of irrigation, evaporation and runoff are minimized.
Water is distributed by overhead high-pressure sprinklers or guns from a central location in the field or from sprinklers on moving platforms.
Center pivot irrigation
Water is distributed by a system of sprinklers that move on wheeled towers in a circular pattern. This system is common in flat areas of the United States.
Lateral move irrigation
Water is distributed through a series of pipes, each with a wheel and a set of sprinklers, which are rotated either by hand or with a purpose-built mechanism. The sprinklers move a certain distance across the field and then need to have the water hose reconnected for the next distance. This system tends to be less expensive but requires more labor than others.
Water is distributed across land by raising the water table, through a system of pumping stations, canals, gates, and ditches. This type of irrigation is most effective in areas with high water tables.
Well plugging is done by removing the pumping system and other well obstructions, filling a well with layers of clean fill and sealing materials, removing the upper 4 feet of well casing, and removal of the well pit, pump platform, or at grade well curbing or structure. Once a well is properly plugged, there should be no further well safety issues or future threat to groundwater and the area can be used for purposes.
If you’re paying me to pull a pump, a camera is a very cheap insurance policy for the well owner. If there’s a sand problem and we didn’t fix it, it will cost a lot more later down the road.
