Why are Well Tanks Needed?

All well systems require pressurized water storage to reduce pump cycling. Most pump motors are designed to run for a minimum of one to two minutes to prevent over cycling and potential failure; an expensive repair or replacement often costing thousands of dollars. Without supplemental storage, small water uses like running a faucet or flushing a toilet would cause rapid pump cycles. A well tank provides a buffer of stored water, protecting your system and reducing energy use.
