By applying compressed air, a pressure tank and pump keeps you with a steady supply of water from your well system. If your home is supplied by well water, odds are you have a pressure tank close to it. The pressure tank has two chambers inside of it; one for water and the other contains compressed air. When it comes to water storage needs, Cook’s can help you beat corrosion with polyethylene, fibre glass or metal pressure tanks.
Why do you need a well tank?
Your well pump forces water to the surface. Without a well tank, the well pump would need to turn on every time you opened a faucet in order to maintain water pressure. Your well tank acts as a water storage container giving your well pump a much needed rest in between cycles. When air pressure inside the well tank decreases due to water usage, a pressure switch automatically activates telling the well pump to fill the water. This assures an ample supply of well water will be on hand the next time you need it.
