Water Systems

MonoDrive/SubDrive

Constant pressure systems are changing the standard for private well systems all over the country. A private water well is one of the best sources of water for your home, but just as in municipal water systems, water pressure may sometimes be insufficient for the changing demands of the home. If you have a problem with water pressure in your home, you may have noticed that your washing machine fills more slowly when your dishwasher is running, or that your shower sputters when your sprinkler turns on. You don’t like it, but you live with it.


Now you have a choice.


With a constant pressure system, you don’t have to schedule your day around your water usage. Franklin’s SubDrive and MonoDrive constant pressure controllers vastly improve your home water system. Using variable speed technology, SubDrive and MonoDrive continuously monitor water demand and adjust the speed of your pump to provide the water you need without pressure fluctuations. Available in a wide variety of ratings, these systems also provide:


  • Smooth, quiet operation
  • Choice of pressure settings
  • Built-in pumping system protection
