Drilled Well Components

A drilled well is not as complicated as one might think. When the kitchen faucet is opened, water will be pushed through from the pressure tank where water is stored. When the water line pressure drops below 40 pounds (typically) then the pressure switch will engage and send power to the submersible pump. Well water will be pumped up through the drop line and into the pressure tank. When the kitchen faucet is closed the pressure tank will continue to be filled until the pressure switch reaches its shutoff pressure (60 pounds, typically). Is your well pump not working or meeting your needs?
