I am curious if anyone here has opinions on VFD's and Cycle Stop Valves (CSV's)
I am moving into a home on well water (for the first time). I have worked on wells but just doing basic repairs, since I'm a city folk and that's where 99% had me over the years. I wouldn't mind have constant pressure at my new home. Just curious what peoples thoughts or experiences are on both of the options for obtain constant pressure. As always thank you in advance.

    Constant pressure is a good way to go. Pay particular attention to wire sizing and length from the drive to the pump. Leave a couple extra loops of wire taped to the pipe at the bottom.

    The pump is already installed... it's just a typical .5hp. I haven't pulled to check the specs yet, and I'm not sure on the depth of the well. If it means dropping a new pump I'm not apposed to that either.
