Best Shallow Well Pump

Expert Review
This pump earns our recommendation because it is a dual action pump. One application is the water supply pressure booster pump. This increases and maintains municipal home water pressure. The Booster Pump will give constant pressure delivering between 60 to 65PSI of pressure and will increase the city water pressure by what pressure is present in the system. For example: if the city water pressure is 20 psi plus the 60 to 65PSI that the pump will deliver, the pump will give a total more or less between 80 to 85PSI. If the incoming pressure is higher than between 20 to 25 psi, a 1" pressure regulator is required at the pump intake to assure that the discharge pressure will not be too high to damage the piping system of the house. That's the maximum pressure that the pump body can withstand. There is no pressure adjustment on this system. The second application is a tankless shallow well jet pump with an electronic control that prevents the pump from running dry. The maximum pressure that the pump will deliver pumping from a well is between 60 to 65PSI. The main feature of the electronic system is to regulate and control the delivery of water and to maintain constant pressure without the inconvenience of fluctuating pressure, especially useful when taking a shower, along with other applications. Everyone wants constant pressure. No pressure switch or tank is needed. 25-Foot vertical lift maximum, similar to all shallow well jet pumps. Because this pump is a dual action pump, it deserves our recommendation!
