Do I need a pump that would be able to change frequencies or is a standard well pump ok to use with a CSV?

The CSV was designed to work with a standard full speed pump to replace those expensive, troublesome, and short lived VFD or variable speed drives.  Actually most variable frequency controls also work with a standard pump.  There is really nothing different about the pumps.  Just the expensive VFD controller makes a good pump give troubles and not last very long.
