Forests cover nearly 31% of our planet’s land area. From the air we breathe, to the water we drink, to the food we eat—forests are crucial to sustain life on Earth. Outdoor clothing company, Patagonia, took this into account when developing an interesting new technology for the material in their wetsuits. Unlike many companies that use neoprene, Patagonia uses renewable Yulex natural rubber. This rubber is tapped from hevea trees that can produce rubber for over 30 years; it replaces conventional, nonrenewable neoprene. After being tapped from hevea trees, the raw latex is refined in a process that removes over 99% of impurities. This includes the proteins that cause latex allergies, and results in a stronger rubber. Also, the raw natural rubber comes from trees that aren’t grown on newly clear-cut rainforest land. This helps preserve the rainforests, which generate millions in revenue for local economies, provide livelihoods for millions of farmers. They are also home to 80% of terrestrial species of animals, plants, and insects. Patagonia has implemented a way to get unnatural performance, from a natural source, in a responsible way.
The water in your well is also a natural resource. C&J Well Co. offers multiple ways to get the best performance from your well, and one of these ways is a Constant Pressure Pump System from Grundfos.
Constant Pressure Pump Systems perform consistently. Grundfos constant pressure systems actually adapt to fluctuations in home water pressure, and automatically adjust your well pump so that water pressure remains constant. For example, you can take a shower and run a load of laundry at the same time without losing water pressure at either point.
Constant Pressure Pump Systems perform conservatively. With a constant pressure system, you can reduce your pressure tank size, conserving space. The sensors in constant pressure systems are also surprisingly accurate, adjusting to the slightest variations in water pressure in your home. This means much less fluctuation in felt water pressure and fewer pump startups and stops. This reduces wear-and-tear on well components and conserves electricity.
Constant pressure systems are ideal for larger families, larger homes, and households with greater daily water demand. Contact C&J today and see if you should upgrade the performance of your well system!
