How does it work?
As described in the “Conventional Pump” section, those pumps run at a fixed unchanging speed, operating only in an ON/OFF mode. Whereas, the Grundfos SQE constant pressure pump is uniquely designed with an intelligent built-in variable speed motor which can speed up or slow down depending upon the amount of water consumed.
As more water is required, the pump will increase its speed and likewise as less water is required, will slow down. This allows the home owner to comfortably use for example, the shower, washing machine and irrigation sprinklers all at the same time, and unlike conventional pumps, there will be no loss of water pressure.
Constant Pressure Pump
The SQE constant pressure system consists of a pump and motor which reside in your well and is controlled by the CU301 User Interface panel conveniently located in your home. Alternatively, the CU301 can be located outdoors wherever the homeowner finds it most convenient.
Unlike most conventional well pumps the SQE comes in a lightweight, 3 inch diameter, which allows for easy installation in small bore wells or older wells that no longer accept a traditional 4 inch pump. It is available in both 115VAC and 230VAC versions and comes in a full range of performance ratings guaranteed to match your exact needs. Never again buy too much or too little of a pump.
Benefits of constant pressure
With constant pressure pumping systems your water pressure will always remain steady and constant regardless of how many family members are consuming water. As more faucets are opened, the pump automatically increases its speed, maintaining your chosen pressure at any flow rate.
Greater comfort is added to your life and greater value added to your home.
