We often take good water pressure for granted until we see only a trickle from the faucet. Without the right water pressure, your well system will struggle to supply water to more than one location at the same time.

What Is a Well Pressure Tank?
A well pressure tank, also known as a storage tank, is one of the main components of a well. Its main job is to store water, but that’s not all it does. It also controls the water pressure as it pumps the water into your home.
Without a well pressure tank, every time you turn on your faucet, the well pump would turn on. This device helps control the flow.
