  • power to water well pump

    hi. my well water line freezes sometimes in winter. i recently moved the pressure tank and switch into a heated space and am now concerned that when the line freezes the pump will continue to run because the pressure switch will stay on. is there an electric breaker type switch that will cut power to the pressure switch and will need to be turned on after the pipe thaws and water is flowing again.

    You can get a switch with a low pressure cut out. so if the pressure at the tank drops below 20lbs it with open the switch killing power to the pump.They are more typically used for situations where the pump is capable of out pumping the well.

    Come spring time you should look into a more serious solution to avoid freezing lines.
