Applications / Cycle Sensor application
« on: August 18, 2020, 11:08:51 AM »
We have a well which produces 4.5 gpm and a pump which pulls 5 gpm so a net deficit of 0.5 gpm. We have an irrigation system too. I am trying to prevent pump from running dry. The well has a reserve of about 600 gallons (450 feet deep with 40 foot static level).

I have a Square D pressure switch with low pressure cut off. The switch is 40/60 so it cuts off below 30 psi. We also have a 90 gallon Wellmate tank. We have had no issues until the other morning when we had no water. Pressure switch had cut off. I’m not sure if it was truly a low pressure situation or a glitch with the switch. It happened in the middle of the night.

Would the Cycle sensor be a good solution for our situation? Also, what would be the benefit of a cycle stop valve?
