Inline Model Water Pressure Tanks (Constant Pressure)
Inline models work in conjunction with constant pressure pumps (such as the Grundfos SQE pump). These pressure tanks are meant to act as a buffer for a pressure sensor, allowing the sensor to detect a drop in pressure before communicating with the pump to call for water. Without an inline pressure tank there would be an immediate drop in pressure until the pump engaged. Constant pressure pumps provide an on demand pressure service, meaning that the second a tap is turned on the pump will engage and provide a continuous stream of water directly from the well. This is a compact system that is usually mounted to a wall, the pressure tanks are very small and easily replaced if there is an issue or a greater demand for water.
The following table provides a list of the most common tanks used in our area. The tank size is noticeably smaller than the stand model pressure tanks, and are sized according to pump size and water supply demand.
