Imagine being able to water your lawn, run the dishwasher, and take a shower, all without a loss of water pressure. The Pentair Pentek Intellidrive water pressure control center for well pump systems eliminates pressure cycling during long-running applications, such as lawn irrigation, spa operation, or pool filling. It is an integral component of a premium residential water system, combining reliability and state-of-the art technology to deliver the right amount of consistent, managed water pressure.
Conventional systems do not manage the flow of water as different faucets and appliances are turned on and off. This causes the pump to run at one speed and the water pressure to fluctuate throughout the home.
The Pentek Intellidrive System will automatically change the speed of the pump to match your water demand, eliminating pressure fluctuations and delivering a consistent flow to showers, faucets, and appliances simultaneously. A pressure transducer detects decreasing water pressure due to increased water demand. The transducer instantaneously sends a signal to the Pentek Intellidrive System, instructing it to increase the water flow. The Intellidrive activates the well pump and adjusts the gallons per minute to match the exact water usage demand. It efficiently manages a residential submersible well water pump’s power demands. The well pump promptly replenishes water drawn from the pressure tank, providing constant, steady water pressure to the entire house.
In addition, the soft start/coast to stop function on the Intellidrive reduces the normal mechanical stress on your pump’s motor, which will tend the lifespan of your motor. The Pentek Intellidrive also allows you to use a smaller water pressure tank, which will save you space and money.
