Lightning and power surges are just one of many problems associated with variable speed pumps. They really are and expensive tar baby when you get stuck with one. Here is a video I found showing how much more a variable speed will cost and how much more energy they use over time. I am making another video with a column for Cycle Stop Valves that will show how the CSV beats both the VFD and conventional pressure tank systems on cost and supplying water dependably for years and years.The pump quoted was 10gpm. It would produce 15gallins per mijute. I am definately houng to avoid the computerized drive. I am at the end of the line for power here. It isnpretty stable most of the time but we have som big storms and wind and lots of people lose power. Spikes are not uncommon.
