What Are Chemical Feed Pumps?

It may come as a shock to many homeowners, but not everyone in this country has access to clean, drinkable water. For homes that get their water from a well, there can be a variety of contaminants in it that have leeched into the water supply. Petroleum products, fertilizer, pesticides, paint residue, grey water can all contaminant the water table where some people get their water.

In those cases, a powerful filtering system is needed to make the water potable. Chemical feeds pumps do just that. For homes with a well, the chemical pump sits between the well and the home’s faucets. The feed pump distributes the appropriate chemicals into the water that neutralize the contaminants and improve the quality of the water. The amount of chemicals that the pump distributes is usually automatically determined by the rate of flow of the water from the well to the home.
