What Do You Need Pump & Tank Wise?
Terms To Know
- Float Switch: A switch that turns a pump on and off as the water level rises and falls.
- French Drain: A gravel-filled drainage system designed to channel water away from a structure or to a pump basin under the structure.
- Lift: The vertical distance from the water level to the highest point to which water is pumped.
- Impeller: A disk with curved veins connected directly to a pump's shaft, generating the pumping action.
Pressure Tanks: Good to Know
When choosing a pressure tank you will need to know the gallons per hour (gph) your pump pushes in your plumbing system and the number of plumbing fixtures, including outside spigots, in the system. Most manufacturers produce a chart that you can plug those numbers into to size your pressure tank. Just remember that if you're in doubt about the size tank you need, it's always better to go larger with pressure tanks. Larger tanks hold more water and reduce the number of times the pump is required to cycle on and off.
