  • Low water pressure from ground level well

    I have a ground level well, water is coming out of it but not at a fast rate, would a pressure tank help boost the pressure to the sprinkler heads??

    not a expert here but if you put a vacuum gauge on the pump. Hi vac like 22 to 26, not enough water available from well, Low vac. pumps not too good.

      A tank does not add anything to the system as far as volume is concerned. It can only disperse out what the pump has put in the tank and only for as long as it takes to empty that much water. The tank is basically there to keep the pump from cycling too much.

      I am assuming you do have a pump and not just a flowing well, since you didn't mention one. If you do, describe it, brand name, horsepower, deep or shallow well system etc. Size of well and water level would be very helpful.
