Water Dr. can install and repair the fresh water supply system for your property as well. We have extensive experience installing pumps, pressure tanks and water filtration systems. It often makes sense to deal with one contractor for both your water supply and water treatment when you are building a new home on a rural property.
The standard FPS 4400 4-inch submersible pump features the Tri-Seal floating stage system. This system improves efficiency and protects against wear when pumping abrasives like sand.
In a conventional well water system, when you use multiple water sources at once, like the shower and washing machine, water pressure drops quickly, causing your shower to sputter or washing machine to fill slowly.
Franklin Electric's constant pressure systems, change the speed of the pump to meet the demand for water, while keeping pressure constant throughout the system. A pressure sensor detects water pressure, sends a signal to the controller and regulates the speed of the pump. Instead of turning on and off when pressure tanks read a certain psi, Franklin's constant pressure system keeps your tank at one pressure level, providing your home with a steady flow of water.
In a constant pressure system when water demand increases, pump speed increases and when water demand decreases, the pump speed will decrease. To maintain pressure in the most efficient way possible the pump only runs as much as necessary. Franklin constant pressure systems do not require large tanks for storage; smaller and lighter tanks can be used and even mounted off the floor, saving space.
Fresh water cisterns are used on rural properties in place of a well. Water is trucked in to fill the cistern. They are used on properties where drilling a well is not possible or practical. Some homeowners prefer a cistern for better quality water. Water Dr. can supply either concrete or fibreglass water cisterns. Fibreglass cisterns to not require very heavy equipment for installation. Lighter equipment is less damaging to existing landscaping.
