You may take the pressure tank in your private water system for granted. But it is a good idea to understand the purpose of the tank and how it works. The pressure tank in a private water system has three purposes.  It stores water and provides water under pressure when the pump is not running.  It builds up a reserve supply of water so the pump starts and stops less often, prolonging the life of the pump.  In addition, it provides a reserve supply of water for use during times of high demand. Operation of a pressure tank is based on physical properties. Water cannot be compressed into a smaller area, while air can. When water is pumped into a tank containing air, the air is compressed, putting the water under pressure. The more the air is compressed, the greater the water pressure. When the water reaches a preset pressure, typically 40 to 60 pounds per square inch (psi), the pump automatically shuts off. As water is used, the pressure in the tank is lowered.  When the water reaches a
Water is an essential need in our daily lives. We drink it, use it for taking baths, for laundry, for cooking, for cleaning, flushing the toilet, washing your beloved car, and almost every other thing.  No one can deny its importance, so it is always the number one priority of every household.

Boreholes are shafts that are drilled into the ground horizontally or vertically. Even though these shafts are narrow, they are intense. An installed water borehole taps into aquifers or underground stores of water that is created through rain and evaporation in the permeable geological matter. Boreholes are drilled and lined with a proper casing and screen. Just around the screen, an annulus is placed and then packed with rounded inert silica sand
