How do i maintain water pressure in my well?
with a pressure tank and pressure switch
If you have water pressure and wish to maintain it, do not cause flow in the line, which will reduce pressure due to friction. To keep pressure up, reduce friction by increasing the line size or eliminating some other restriction. To maintain water pressure in the line, it might have a pressure transmitter and Booster pump to maintain the set Pressure in the network & I disagree the above answer to maintain the pressure we…
Wells are actually electric pumps that supply the water pressure to a home's water. When a faucet is opened, the pressure drops, activating a sensor which starts the pump to maintain pressure. So only if there is no one inside (or out) using water and the pump is cycling is that a problem, and indicates a ruptured pipe.
The pressure balance valve compensates for changes in water pressure. It has a piston inside that reacts to relative changes in either hot or cold water pressure to maintain balanced pressure. As water pressure drops on one supply line, the valve reduces the pressure on the other supply line to match.
How do you stop the water pressure of a well from spurting and almost stopping the flow of water when there seems to be lots of water in the well?
The water is pumped upwards by the atmospheric pressure acting on the surface of the water in the well. That is only strong enough to support a column of water that is 10m tall.

Depending if your on a well or public water system ,Well sys just increase your pressure with your pressure switch ,adjustment of your pressure regulator valve if so equiped (turn in )clockwise Plumbers generally apply a narrow vent in the tubular flow of your plumbing pipes to increase the water pressure. If the flow is divergent one, you may use a water knob or a valve to enhance the water pressure.
An artesian well is simply a well that doesn't require a pump to bring water to the surface; this occurs when there is enough pressure in the aquifer. The pressure forces the water to the surface without any sort of assistance. The aquifer absorbs and stores water and in an artesian well the porous stone is sandwiched between a top and bottom layer of impermeable rock such as shale or clay. This causes positive pressure…
The 121 degree temperature is maintained by the pressure itself, if the pressure were to drop bellow 15psi then the boiling point of the water would drop, and the temperature would fall. The boiling point of water is affected by pressure, the more pressure the higher the boiling point, hence a higher temperature.
