Leading-edge technology for a premium residential water system that makes life better!
Water Pressure When You Need It
Whether on well water or city water supply, fluctuations in water pressure can be a real nuisance. With the Pentek Intellidrive, you can take a shower, water the lawn and run the dishwash at the same time...without experiencing a decrease in water pressure.
Intelligent Pressure Control
The Prentek Intellidrive is a water pressure management system that works with your home's well pump to maintain constant water pressure regardless of how many people or appliances are using water at the same time.
Compatible with Link2O™ Technology
Today's homes are getting smarter every day, providing you with the kind of power and performance you demand. By investing in today's Pentek Intellidrive with Link2O, that power is yours: Increase protection, more control over your water pressure, and constant connectivity - alerting you to problems with your system.
What are the Benefits of Pressure Control?
The Pentek Intellidrive is a water pressure management system that works with your home's well pump to maintain constant water pressure regardless of how many people or appliances are using water at the same time.
The Pentek Intellidrive Water Pressure Control Center also eliminates pressure cycling during long-running applications, such as lawn irrigation, spa operation or pool filling.
The Pentek Intellidrive maintains constant water pressure in and around your house regardless of demand.
Extends Pump Life
Soft start / Coast to Stop function reduces the normal mechanical stress on your pump's motor, extending its overall life.
A system using the Pentek Intellidrive can utilize a smaller water pressure tank, saving space AND money.
LCD Status Indication
The Pentek Intellidrive includes an LCD display providing real-time status indication for system monitoring and trouble-shooting ease.
Why is pressure important?
Conventional well water systems are typically designed to work with a pressure switch, set at 40-60 PSI (pounds per square inch), and a storage tank. The pump turns on, at full capacity, when the pressure drops to 40 PSI to fill a pressurized storage tank. Once the tank is filled to capacity, the pump shuts off and water demand is met by the storage tank. The pump runs at one speed. When you use multiple sources of water (example: shower & dishwasher), your water pressure drops quickly causing fluctuations in pressure and water flow to diminish.
The Pentek Intellidrive helps eliminate these issues. The Pentek Intellidrive will maintain constant pressure output regardless of fluctuating demand. The Pentek Intellidrive works utilizing a pressure transducer that signals the pump to change speed to meet the water demand, while keeping pressure constant. When the water demand increases (i.e. the dishwasher gets turned on), the pump speed increases allowing constant pressure at all times. When the water demand decreases (the dishes are done), the pump speed decreases. The pump maintains constant pressure by only speeding up when it needs to.
