Have you ever wondered how water pressure tanks work? If you’re about to buy a new home in Midland, it’s goo to know how these work. It’s not incredibly complicated. It’s just that things need to work together and be balanced.

So, the first thing to consider is that the pressure switch is how the pressure tank knows how to get more water. When the tank pushed out enough water to trigger the pressure switch, it lets more water into the system from the well pump. Then, the well water refills to maximum capacity, creating more pressure. . The pressure gauge measures how much pressure is in the system. When the tank is full, then it shuts off again.

Pressure switched are set to a 20-psi range of the starting and stopping pressures. Let’s say the pressure switch is set for 40 psi to turn on. Then, it will be set at 60 psi to turn off. After enough water is drained from the tank to make the pressure lower than 40 psi, the pressure take will turn on and get more well water using the pump. When the pressure gets back up to 60 psi, then it will turn off again.

You will want to make sure that you have the right size pressure tank for the house. That helps extend the life of the pump and the pressure tank.
