Well Manager Reviews
In our Well Manager reviews, we let the amazing changes in our customers’ lives speak for our products. We won’t waste your time with claims that don’t have any backing to prove them; instead, here we share with you some of the Well Manager products reviews we received. We encourage you to continue reading to learn what Well Manager® and Well Watcher can do for you.
Thanks, Dan and Co. for the perfect solution to our long-term problem!
Few things are as annoying as a shower running out of water at 3am or a washing machine stopping mid-fill because you pumped your well dry. Here in WV, I have a 400′ deep well, but it is very low yield. Running out of water can happen easily whether I was doing laundry, power washing the deck, or the back flushes for our water conditioning tanks had gone off recently. We changed the well pump, looked for holes in the water line, replaced the pressure tank and pressure switch…. nothing seemed to help.
Short of digging a new well, I did some research and came across Well Manager. After watching videos and reading about the product, I was convinced this could help me. I spoke with Lynn and after consultation with Dan, we decided the Well Watcher system would suit my needs best. We chose the 220 gallon upright reservoir tank to be installed in our garage. Shipping was fast and easy. (fast forward 11 months, I finally had it installed by our local plumber). Dan at Well Manager was always available for any questions I had. And I had a lot! He explained everything clearly and we made minor adjustments to the Cycle sensor to ensure everything was running well.
I love seeing how much water we are using and the well watcher sips from the well during the day so we never run the well dry. It is very adjustable (I like to keep mine refilling at 0.5 -1 gpm). While the back flush system runs directly off the well, everything else comes out of my reservoir which has plenty of water to handle our activities. Best of all, if I ever need more water reserves, you can purchase additional tanks that connect to one another.
When I have questions I send Dan a text and he calls me back promptly to walk me through anything I need. I can’t recommend this product highly enough. It was a huge relief to our family and the best purchase for our house I have made in 15 years, Previous to that was the water conditioning tanks that made our iron filled water clear and delicious.
I would like to thank you and your staff on a great product
We have been living with running out of water since 2013 every winter, which means we had to go down into the crawl space in the snow and reset our low-pressure cut-off switch. Drill a well was an expensive option and not guaranteed to find water, so we decided to go with the Well Manager system for 2 reasons, to allow the well to slowly fill up the tanks and not have to continually reset the well and we could also manually fill if necessary for a large usage coming. I am happy to say that since the well manager installation has been complete, we no longer have to reset the well low pressure cut off, no longer have to trudge through the snow at 5am and crawl into the crawl space!
We are very happy with the system, thank you!
Dan and the Well Manager team are awesome.
The product does what it says it does and it does it well. I purchased the Well Manager for a 10-15 gallon/hr well and have plenty of water for multiple showers, dishwasher, power washing, clothes washer, etc. I have had the system over a year with just one issue. The team was very responsive and got me up and running again quickly. It mostly runs as an appliance and has required no maintenance otherwise. Way cheaper than digging a new well!
The Most Reliable and Least Evasive Solution to Our Low Yield Well
When purchasing our dream home, we encountered an issue with a low-yield well during the inspection. After researching solutions for this problem, we found that Well Manager offered the most reliable and least evasive solution. Our Well Watcher system has performed exactly as described, and the peace of mind alone has been well worth the investment.
I Can Provide Water for My Family of Six
After dealing with a low-yield well for over five years, and countless hours of research, I decided to invest in the Well Watcher system from Well Manager …and it was worth the investment! The increase in water pressure alone was worth the money. This system is easy to set up and keeps on collecting water all day long. I have a very low yield well… for instance, I only collect at a rate of 0.2 gpm (yes, 0.2) and this gives my family of 6 enough water. There are times that we have to be careful about our water usage, but that is due to the nature of our well, not the system. If you have a low yielding well, I would recommend this system as it will certainly help and is a much cheaper alternative to drilling a new well. Dan was great to work with and knows his stuff. I had an issue with the pump and the company resolved the issue quickly.
Great Customer Service and Reasonable Pricing
Not often do clients feel as comfortable and assured as when they are treated with professionalism, respect, and genuine concern by their service person. The guys at Well Manager know that an interruption of water to a customer is never a light matter and are always there immediately to handle the problem and remedy the matter as quickly as possible, and always at a very reasonable price. Thanks for your great service! It’s comforting to know my WM system is in good hands!
Easy Installation and Flawless Execution
Installed a Modular Well Manager over 4 years ago. I live near the company headquarters and bought one on site from the designer Andy Reid.
I was impressed by what he developed and he was very generous going through how the whole thing worked and how it was assembled. With the modular, all the components were separate from the tank. Got two 150 gallon tanks. Took about a day to install myself as a first timer. Mostly due to figuring out how to situate it and had both pex and copper to plumb. Wiring was straight forward. Has worked flawlessly since.
If you have iron deposits, I would suggest a 5 micron sediment filter which will keep the tanks cleaner. I used oxalic acid to clean the tanks to like new before the filter, but they are much cleaner now with. Well Manager does what it claims to do and is a quality build. Recently replaced my original very old 80 gallon pressure tank to a small 14 gal with a cycle stop valve which converts it into a constant pressure style. Got instant help from Dan who is extremely helpful and gave me suggestions right over the phone. Highly recommend this product.
The Well Manager System Allows Us to Maintain Our Pool
This is a customer install. Our well was originally yielding about 3.5 gpm when first installed. After 11 years it had dropped to about 1 gpm. It is only 250′ deep and I figure we only had about 100′ max reservoir in the well. In 2014 we put a 18’x36′ pool in and we were unable to keep up with the evaporation to maintain the pool level.
This was system rocks. It doesn’t over pump our well and gives us enough water to maintain our pool. We can even conservatively run our irrigation system, but I really need to add another tank or 2 to run that. This setup gives us 450 gallons of water for a family of 4 this is plenty of water. Andy was great with helping me spec out this system and with my install. We have had this in place since 2015.
5 years later we had an issue with our automatic pump that controls the well pump. Dan was great and walked me through trouble shooting steps over the phone. He was very patient and walked me through things step by step. We finally found out that the problem was some silt that was in the clear back pressure tube that keeps that kicks the pump off so it will not pump dry. Cleaned out the tube and all is good. Dan recommended that I put in a 5 micron filter in between the water entry and the tanks to mitigate this issue in the future.
I highly recommend this system. It will keep you from having to drill a new well and give you more water pressure than most city water systems.
I Can Take A Real Shower Now
Before we got the Well Manager we were concerned about doing the laundry. Even one load of wash would cause our water to go down to a trickle. Now we do our wash without pulling the well down. We are thrilled with the increase in water pressure and I can take a real shower now.

All Of Our Water Needs Are Taken Care Of
Background: The owner built this home in the Sourland Mountains in the late 1970s. Water had always been a problem but with 4 adults and several children in the house things became intolerable. It got to the point where someone had to keep the pressure switch engaged using a stick or no one got a shower because the system would not maintain 20 psi.
Mr. Nemeth was so skeptical about Well Manager that we offered him a written money back guarantee. The terms were 50% on installation and the other 50% in two weeks if he wanted to keep the system. If he didn’t want to keep it we would remove the Well Manager®, replace his pressure tank and refund all of the money he put down.
Once the conversion was complete Mrs. Nemeth was asked to try the kitchen faucet. She opened the faucet, jumped back and said she had never seen that much water pressure coming from that faucet before. Two weeks later we stopped by and offered to remove the system. We got a check instead. Here’s what Mr. Nemeth said 4 years later:
“Our Well Manager has been great. Before its installation we would lose water supply on a regular daily basis. Now, all of our needs for water are taken care of.”
Worries Are Gone
Background: The Basarabs live in an area where the ground is tight and just doesn’t transmit water readily, so their well would frequently leave them high and dry. This is a problem shared by the Basarabs and their neighbor. Rosemary was fed up not having enough water to take care of her garden, do laundry or wash dishes when she wanted. Mike and Rosemary had a Well Manager® installed and the neighbor drilled his well deeper. The neighbor got little relief but the Basarabs did far better.
“I don’t know how we would have gotten through this past drought without the Well Manager. Worries are gone!”
Mike & Rosemary Basarab, Central New Jersey
Since Installation, We Haven’t Run Out Of Water Once
Background: Bob’s well pumped large volumes of sand and the water was so hard that his hot water coil needed to be cleaned several times a year. Previously there was no softener because he didn’t have the water to backwash one. He installed a 165-gallon Well Manager system and a new water softener.
“We were running out of water almost every day. Since the installation of our Well Manager we haven’t run out once.”
Robert Snell, Central New Jersey
Our Livelihood Depends On Water Consumption
This is a letter I am happy to write! We installed the Well Manager and it has been the best home improvement we have ever made.
We are a husband and wife who own and operate a dog grooming business from our home. We had all the state-of-the-art equipment, except for our water system. The quality of our water has always been great but the volume has been a problem. When our well ran dry we had it refracted. We could only use water from one source which meant while we were working no other water could be used. The dishwasher and washing machine were run on our days off. To complicate matters my son and his family were moving in with us and we were adding two new bathrooms and 1000 sq. feet to our existing one bath home. Water was our main concern so laundry was done at the Laundromat; showers had to be short and before work. After much research, we decided to try the Well Manager so we installed the 220-gallon tank. Our family of five can now shower whenever they want (and as long as they want) and we can use three showers at the same time! We now do our laundry at home whenever we want even when the dishwasher is running. We are also planning to add an additional tub to our grooming shop.
Water consumption has always been our main focus especially since our livelihood depends on it and the Well Manager has definitely changed the way we live our lives. Thanks!

Since Installation We Have Not Had A Single Incident
Background: Large custom home on three floors with indoor pool, two pool showers with multiple heads and body sprays, 8 bathrooms, and landscape irrigation on a 5 gallon per minute well. In spite of the 3 large pressure tanks, the irrigation system would run the well dry, you could not use the master bath shower and do anything else at the same time and the pool showers were unusable. Now they can open every faucet in the house at the same time.
“Since installation of the Well Manager we have not had a single incident when well water was exhausted. Prior to this installation we were unable to water our lawn since the demand exceeded the on-hand supply of water.”
Kevin Johnson, Northern New Jersey
We Do Not Have To Worry About Running Out Of Water
Background: Bob is an engineer and familiar with plumbing and well products.
“My wife and I have lived in Rock Creek Canyon south of Colorado Springs for twenty years. We have a shallow well that usually provides adequate amount of water for our life needs plus a little outside garden watering. But with the drought worsening in Colorado over the past three years, our well level dropped to the point of producing only about 10 minutes of water every 2 to 4 hours. We still conserve but we do not have to worry about running out of water in the middle of a shower or burning up the well pump or pulling silt from the bottom of the well. We can do laundry at home and more than one load a day. We also have constant pressure for luxurious showers. Many times we have praised our Well Manager.
I installed the Well Manager myself with the help of an electrician to install the 220V wiring. The instructions, preassembled components and the much-appreciated customer support made the installation easy and uncomplicated.”
Robert VanDepas, Rock Creek Canyon, Colorado
We Now Have A Very Capable Water Supply
Background: Ron is a retired Texas oil field geologist. His daughter Kerri, an engineer, works at a high-profile banking organization in NYC. Together they installed the Well Manager® because the nearest plumber is 70 miles away. Using the internet to send digital pictures back and forth, they completed the installation which required some radical plumbing and wiring changes. Why? Because Ron wanted to replace his 3,000-gallon cistern system which would occasionally run out of water. When that happened, it would take days to get the huge system back up and running. During those periods he had to haul water. It was not easy to convince Ron that a 425-gallon tank could replace a 3000-gallon cistern!
“This morning I raised the Tank Full shutoff to nearly 400 gallons, which will be plenty. We love having the water pressure and a good supply. I’m pretty proud that my smart daughter and I, with your coaching got it going…We now have a very capable water supply from a 1/3 gallon per minute well.”
“…Our home is at a remote location 10,280 feet above sea level so after sales service is important to us. The Well Manager people are always ready to help.”
Ron Keisler, Weston, Colorado
Great Service & Support
Well Manager allowed us to harvest water twenty-four hours a day from our 1-2 gallon per minute well. It was a real help and helped to delay us needing a new well for several years. Great service and support as well. Thanks.
D. BLANKENSHIP, CEDAR CREST, NEW MEXICO
We Constantly Ran Out Of Water Prior To Installation
Background: The church had a well with a submersible pump connected to a galvanized pressure tank. The longer water would run, the poorer the pressure and the dirtier it got.
Before Well Manager we constantly ran out of water during our dinners and other functions at the church. Now we have plenty of water for those tough cleanups after serving 80-90 dinners.

CPM Addition Exceed Expectations
Background: When Rob remodeled his cabin he reworked everything, including the plumbing. Once that was done, it didn’t take long to find out that there wasn’t enough water to run it. With two people in the house he ran out of water all the time.
“Amazing!! All water problems are solved!!”
Update: Rob added a large hot tub that he has no trouble at all filling. Having water has made him want to make some other changes. He now plans to add a Jacuzzi multi-head shower system and that started him thinking about the Consistent Pressure Module. Rob ordered and installed a CP Module and now he says: “The CPM addition exceeded all of my expectations. Can’t understand why I didn’t install it sooner! The only thing better than the unit itself was the service and support that I received from you! Thanks again!!!”
ROBERT BOETTCHER, NEW YORK
People from all walks of life have installed their own Well Manager® systems. Some did it to save money and others because they were so far out in God’s Country that there was no one else to do it. All either had a working knowledge of electrical wiring and piping or knew someone else who did. These projects were staffed by fathers-in-law, Dads, neighbors, friends, and in one case a daughter.
These pictures represent the labor of folks who were so fed up living with their poor wells that they took matters into their own hands. Every one of them is rightfully proud of the job they did and happy with the result they achieved. They were so pleased that they offered to share their story and pictures with you.
System Fit In A Tight Space
Lou’s 3 bedroom, 2 bath home has a 750’ well that started out producing 2.5 gpm but production fell off slowly over time until he felt compelled to contact us in June of 2005 when the yield was so poor that he would run out of water on weekends when everyone was home.
Part of Lou’s problem was that he just did not have much room for additional equipment in his tiny mechanical space. The well had a chlorinating system with contact tank because of an iron bacteria problem so he needed to retain that. The nice thing about the Well Manager was that he could eliminate the chlorinating system’s contact tank because the Well Manager tank would serve that function but, in 2005 the only Well Manager that would fit in the room did not hold enough water so he was looking at other locations to install a system.
When our new 210 gallon systems became available in 2006, the space problem was solved and Lou found the answer to his problems. There were quite a few plumbing changes required to reconfigure his well and water treatment systems. Lou’s mechanical abilities are evident in the before and after pictures he provided. Nice job, Lou!
LOU LIBERTI, LANDENBERG, PA
Happy With The Outcome
Walt bought a Consistent Pressure Module to use on his existing well pump. He installed the unit himself.
Walt is an engineer who had a friend with a problem. When her geothermal heat pump ran it caused the well pump to cycle every 1.5 minutes. With the hottest weather of the year approaching something had to be done or he would be replacing the pump. The well yield was adequate so he needed a way to modulate the well pump outlet. He could have changed the pump to a variable speed but a CP Module seemed a much simpler solution.
You can tell by the look on Walt’s face that he was pretty happy with the outcome. A very nice job indeed! The unit fit into the small space quite easily and fixed the problem in short order.

Your Product Has Saved Me From Drilling Another Well
I have run my “Low Yield” well dry on numerous occasions. The well only produces one-eighth of a gallon of water per minute. After reviewing your very informative website and discussing my situation and needs with you on the phone, I believe that I have made a good decision in buying your well manager 425 CP unit.
I installed the unit myself and found the instruction manual to be complete and easy to understand, making the set up quick and easy…..it was up and running in two hours. Everything worked properly the first time. I am impressed with your quality control and pre-shipment checkout.
The constant pressure feature is great. To have high pressure showers is very nice. The washing machine fills faster and the cycles are running in less time. Best of all is knowing that I have water when I want it and when I need it. The well manager has also allowed me to live off the stored water while I cleaned and disinfected my well.
Thank you for all your advice and for the excellent product. It has saved me from drilling another well that may not have produced any more water than the first. I have recommended the well manager to my neighbors who also have low yield wells and run out of water. I am very happy with your product and “thank you” again.

Our Lawn Is Bright Green, While Our Neighbors’ Is Brown
Occasionally we ask a Well Manager owner if they would mind speaking to a prospect who asked to talk with someone who has lived with a Well Manager system for a year or two. I have never had anyone refuse to do that and most are enthusiastic because they remember what life was like before their Well Manager was installed. On this occasion I contacted two owners in the same area as the interested person. One offered to speak on the phone and the other, Greg Denalsky, sent the following email and pictures.
I’ve had a Well Manager for about 4 years and it’s been everything I could have wanted.
Let me tell you a little about our situation here in Granby, Ct. Granby is a small town of about 10,000 people and the majority of them are on wells. After building our house we drilled a 500 plus foot well that produced about 2 gpm. With a low yield well and low pressure, we decided to contact you about a possible solution. We could not water our lawn sufficiently and when we did our well was so low we needed to install a drinking water filter because of sediment. After much deliberation we decided the Well Manager was a perfect solution for our low yield and pressure.
I wish you could see our lawn compared to our neighbors. We live on about 1.5 acres and our neighbors on each side have brown grass while ours is bright green.
GREG DENALSKY, GRANBY, CONNECTICUT
The Installation Was Very Easy To Do
Tijeras, (pronounced Taheras) is in the mountains east of Albuquerque, New Mexico at an elevation of about 7,000’ MSL. There’s not a lot of water up there but many enjoy the quiet beauty. It is home to a lot of self sufficient folks who are used to fending for themselves. Richie had a pretty good well considering the area but when he saw the well yield declining he decided to do something about it before it was too late.
The Barnes residence has a crawl space with a dirt floor. The WM210CPH was the perfect system as it is only 48” high. Richie leveled out a spot, put down some pressure treated boards and set the unit on them.
I am very pleased with the complete Well Manager System I purchased. The installation was very easy to do for anyone with basic skills in Plumbing and Electrical. The recovery of my well had dropped to about 3-4 gallons a minute from about 15 gallons per minute when drilled 26 years ago. I felt that my best bet was to install your system so I would have a constant water pressure in the house without overworking the well.
RICHARD BARNES, TIJERAS, NM
The Well Manager System Has Worked Flawlessly
We purchased our rural home in northeastern Washington State …on 20 acres, in what has turned out to be a wonderful little community. Shortly after purchasing the property I determined that the well was going to be an issue. I had the well tested during the inspection period but I didn’t realize that just because the well pump works doesn’t really tell you much. One day I was running a lawn sprinkler and it just shut off after about 20 minutes.
I’d made an appointment with a well pump Service Company to come out and see what was going on. The owner, a very helpful man named Theron, came over and tested the output of the well. My sorry little well put out less than 1/3 of a gallon per minute without the water level dropping. So the pump guy offered a couple of options. I could drill a new well or I could add an in-ground tank fed by the well pump along with a separate jet pump to feed the house.
I made a call to the largest well drilling company in town. They could either drill a new well or they could remove my pump and pit-less adapter and drill my existing well deeper. He said that more than likely the wires running from the breaker panel to the well were too small for the larger pump and that would require digging a 500 ft’ trench to the well, etc, etc, etc. The price kept getting higher and more than once he reminded me that there was no guarantee the well would produce any more than I was currently getting.
I called Theron back and asked him to tell me about his in-ground tank and jet pump solution. He explained some possible layouts and estimated it would cost about $2800. At some point he mentioned something called a PumpTec. That simple two syllable word was the key to finding my solution. I searched the Internet for PumpTec and one of the hits was your website. I spent a lot of time that night learning about the Well Manager System. I really liked what I was reading. Even though the price was comparable to drilling a new well I understood how my current low yield well could slowly but surely fill a storage tank. It all made sense.
I filled out your questionnaire and I got a call from you the very next day. We spoke a few times over the next week. Never once did I feel like you were just trying to make a sale. You were genuinely interested in my situation and finding a solution that would work for me. I never felt pressured to buy and more importantly for me you never made me feel stupid while explaining the system to me. I told you I’d give this some thought and call you back in a few days if I had any more questions.
A few days later I phoned you and placed the order. It arrived at the freight depot the following week so I drove the 100 miles down to get it. We got the system home and carefully unloaded it. Since you had already told me the size of the condensation pan as well as some suggestions on making sure the floor where the tank was going would support the load we were ready to start the installation the next day. The guy that was helping me with the plumbing said he had heard about some sort of system like this but didn’t think it was going to work. He also said that I could have spent my money better by drilling a deeper well. When I told him the quotes I’d received and that I was comfortable in my decision that this was the best way to go he basically said, “I guess we will see”.
I followed the instructions for powering everything up and was pretty excited watching the tank fill. Based on your installation manual and your help over the phone I set the timer to ON for 1 minute and OFF for 20 minutes. It’s been that way since day one and it seems to be working just fine.
It works wonderfully! There are four of us living here. My lovely wife Myra, our adult son Jeremy and our high school aged daughter Savannah. Myra has never had a problem with having enough water for laundry, dishes, etc. We can water the lawn around the house and have no problems keeping the horses, the goat, the dogs, cats and chickens watered. Even my daughter is happy now that she can take as long of a shower as she likes.
Thank you Andy for developing the Well Manager System. Drilling a new well or deepening our existing well might have worked but it was a very expensive risk that I couldn’t afford to take. The Well Manager has done everything you said it would and it has worked flawlessly now for almost 3 years.
HUGH HUMES, ONION CREEK, WASHINGTON
Everything Is Working Great
It’s been about a year since I installed my system, and everything is working great. All winter my neighbors have had well companies parked in their driveways as they either dig deeper or hydrofract. Meanwhile we had a full house over the holidays (8 people, with one who is obsessive about doing laundry every day), and didn’t even come close to running out of water.
After a year of successful use, I’m thinking about expanding my capacity to drive a sprinkler system (the system was already in the lawn; I estimate I’ll need about 600 gal a day to water a full inch per week).
1. He is working from the same aquifer as the neighbors. The neighbors decided they could convince nature to give up more water and Matt chose to take the more gentle approach and get in step with nature. Sounds like Matt has plenty of water and the neighbors don’t.
2. Having an adequate water supply has a huge impact on quality of life. It frees you to plan the day around family needs rather than water availability and it allows you to expand your horizons. Many people have written to say that they have added a bathroom or modernized their plumbing after installing one of our systems when before they could barely function. Some were so fed up that they were thinking about selling and now they are making plans and improvements where they are.

Confident Our Water Problems Have Been Solved
After 2 weeks of operation, I am very confident that the Well Manager and pressure module have solved our water problems. We now have excellent water pressure throughout the house, even when using multiple fixtures. We are a five person, 1 & 2 half bath household and I can’t imagine running out of water now. After 2 weeks of close observation, I have never seen less than 110 gallons in the tank, so we are considering adding a shower stall to one of the half baths.
The back pressure gauge on the flow element gives us a good handle on our water usage versus well production, and so far it looks like we’ve gained a few feet in the well. Additionally, the storage tank gives us greatly increased contact time (for chlorine injection) to treat a stubborn sulfur problem. (As I am writing this, my wife is folding laundry and looking over my shoulder and she swears the clothes are much cleaner since going on the Well Manager).

I Installed It Myself With Ease
Gary and his wife purchased a house from his employer, Lycoming County, Penna. Gary thought he had checked the property over thoroughly until he ran out of water shortly after moving in. The County did everything they could to help the Staggerts resolve the problem but things were looking grim until Gary discovered Well Manager.
The Story in Gary’s words:
“My wife and I purchased a home located in central PA. We are a young couple and everything seemed to be going great for us. We had all types of inspections done to this home before purchasing, but never thought to have a well yield test done and nothing was mentioned in the disclosure about any past problems with the water.
After one week in the house we ran out of water and burned up the well pump. After notifying the sellers (which was the County we lived in and the one I worked for) they were more than willing to help make things right. We installed a new well pump and a Pump Tec pump protector giving us water again, but this did not solve the biggest problem which was the quantity of water I had.
After talking with some people and doing some research I found out that this problem has always existed with this home along with others in the area and it was mentioned in the disclosure when the County purchased the home from the past residents. Now the County was even more willing to work with me on getting this problem taken care of, so I requested to have the well hydro-fractured which did not help as the well yield was still only 1/3gpm (Note: I have seen some great results with this process on other wells).
From this point I had a lot of people trying to talk me into installing a 500 or 1000 gallon underground storage tank system in my yard but I could not get myself to like this type of system for a lot of reasons. At this point I thought I was running out of options so I started doing a lot of research and searched the Web in an attempt to find the best alternative for my problem. This is when I came across the Well Manager.
After looking over some of the literature it appeared to me that this was the ticket. I presented the Well Manager system to the County (the sellers) and they agreed to help cover the cost of whichever system I decided to go with. After communicating with Andy Reid I decided to go with the WM160M-50 system with the Consistent Pressure Module. I installed it myself with ease (great instructions) and it is working wonderfully. It feels like a huge weight has been lifted from my shoulders because I now have the water quantity to live a normal life without the worry.”

Well Has Not Run Dry During Drought
We have been in a drought situation in Central Texas for several years now; The last two have been severe. So far my well has not run dry and I attribute that good fortune to the Well Management System. Just as you pointed out when I first got the system, it is very easy to forget that it is doing its job 24/7. I have two 200 gallon storage tanks and that seems about right for me. My timer is set to activate the well pump for three minutes each hour. Some things that I particularly like about your system are:
Self monitoring and shut down if a problem is detected. For example, if there is no flow from the well the system turns off the pump within five seconds.
The ability to program (not at all complicated) the timer to activate at selected times for the specified amount of time.
The ability to bypass the well pump timer with the flip of a switch. That is useful when watering the lawn, etc.
Water pressure. It is great.
One of the things that I appreciate most about the system is your expert advice and willingness to help with any questions. For example, my son also installed a well manager after he saw mine. He recently called you with questions about the pressure pump, and an O-ring that he needed. You answered in detail all of his questions, told him where to find a spare O-ring that was shipped with the system, and sent another O-ring so he would still have a spare.
Thank you Andy for an excellent product, and for friendly expert service before, during, and years after the sale.

The Well Manager Is Like Magic
Sometimes it takes people a while to make the decision to buy a Well Manager. Well Manager just seems to be too good to be true or some local contractor convinces them to hydrofract, drill a new well or buy their job built system which is “just as good” as a Well Manager and costs less. Sometimes the local expert simply says “that will never work.”
Many of those who initially choose another option or defy the naysayers become Well Manager owners. Once they see what a Well Manager can do they become so enthusiastic that they want to tell others. John Rogers of Tijeras, New Mexico purchased his Well Manager after considering the purchase for some time. John needed a place to install the system so he had a new well house built then installed the Well Manager himself.
John’s story in his words from an email:
“We moved to the mountains east of Albuquerque 31 years ago. We cleared the land for a house and had a well drilled. We new nothing about water wells. The driller said that he had hit water at 90 feet and continued down to 220 feet. He also said that the well was producing 7 gallons per minute. Over the years we would periodically run out of water, but if we shut the well pump down for a few hours we could still get water. It was not a warm fuzzy feeling. As our area became dryer and dryer and neighbors complained of well problems, we started looking for alternatives.
The Well Manager is like magic. We measured the well production and found that over the years the static water level had remained the same but the well production was down to half a gallon a minute. That explains why sometimes we ran out of water. Now we have all of the water we need. We even have a “savings account “of water thanks to extra 210 gallon tank that we bought. We have plenty of pressure thanks to the constant pressure module, something we never had with the old pressure tank. Most importantly we know we will have water. This has been the most important and significant upgrade that we have ever made to our home.”

Well Manager Hasn’t Let Us Down All Summer
I completed the installation the first week of May and our Well Manager hasn’t let us down all summer. We supported two homes on the output while most folks out here on the ridge were having water trucked in.

End The Aggravation & Get A Well Manager System
It took me a little time but I finally installed the WM, Consistent Pressure Module. I don’t know how to thank you enough! Everything worked perfectly and I couldn’t be happier! You and your product are amazing. I was very impressed how you had everything set up from just the pictures and measurements I sent you.
I have dealt with a poor yield and quality well from the day we installed it. After drilling 600′ deep and casing the entire way we decided to stop dumping money in the ground and install a storage system. The storage system the well driller installed was crude but worked at the time and saved us further aggravation so we thought. We assumed that the well would always be an issue that we would have to deal with. Over the course of about 5 years since we built our house the system started to break down (the centrifugal pump would trip, the shut off wouldn’t work so the tanks would overflow, the pump would run too much and create a lot of sediment) we knew it was time to look at other options. We did some research online and found your website and system to be the answer we were looking for. Your response time was great when we inquired about your product and you were very helpful with giving us multiple options for us to select from. Once the choice was made to make a hybrid system using our tanks with your components it was only days until you had the box at our house. I installed the system myself and was very impressed with everything you supplied. You can tell how much thought and experience went into your products at first glance and only increases as you set it up. We have two 200 gallon tanks which now stay full or nearly full at all times with water that is as clear as spring water! We also have pressure like city water which was another great bonus.
I thank you once again and would urge anyone reading this with well issues to end the aggravation and get a Well Manager system. I will certainly tell everyone about your company and wonderful product!”

Easy To Install & A Great System
My wife and I purchased a Well Manager. It was easy to install and a great system. I should have sent in a testimonial a while ago but I wanted to see for myself. Well we have not run out of water since and it gives us a great deal of relief knowing we can be normal. We still conserve water because folks who are in, or have been in a situation of running out of water know how valuable water is.

It’s Such A Great Feeling To Have Plenty Of Water
We are a family of 6 with a low producing well. While the WM has helped out a lot over the years, we never really had enough water to be truly comfortable.
Sure, things got better when we had consistent rain and worse when we didn’t.
I experimented with the settings and I eventually figured out the proper timing for our well. The problem was, our well pressure was really low and the amount of water that we’d receive each day from those pulls just wasn’t cutting it. So out of desperation, I’d change the setting to pull for just 10 or 20 seconds longer each time and we’d end up with more water — temporarily.
Understanding well theory and living with the results are two different things, especially when the wife is complaining about lack of water all the time.
Anyway, things got really bad here in June. We had hardly any water for day to day life and we seriously considered spending $7-$10K on another well. We started to hate this house. Around the same time, we had a new liner put into our above ground swimming pool and we needed to have water delivered (of course). Our pool requires 10,000 gallons and the tanker truck delivered only 6,000 at a time (2 deliveries = 12,000 gallons which is 2,000 too many).
So I had an idea.
I adjusted the well settings to what I knew was proper for our well, and then I pumped the excess 2,000 gallons from our swimming pool into our well. Of course, this boosted the well pressure significantly and we had a full tank of water each morning for weeks. This much was expected.
Knowing that we use approx. 700 gallons per day as a family, I figured at worst, the 2,000 gallons would last us a couple of weeks and then we might go back into the same pattern as before.
What I didn’t expect is that 4 months later, our pathetic well is still producing plenty of water despite a pretty serious drought in these parts. The tank is almost always full and we haven’t skipped a shower or visited the Laundromat since mid-June.
The best I can figure is this:
• Getting the timing right meant that we always requested less water than the well produced.
• Adding pool water to the well gave us the cushion we needed to continue living our lives while waiting for the well to recover. This is something that just wasn’t possible before due to our needs.
• Because the well has plenty of water now, the well pressure is consistently high so the WM tank fills itself faster than before, meaning that the well can now rest for 6-8 hours per day whereas before, it was always pulling water without a break. This, of course, also helps the well recover.
The full tank light on the panel is real and it’s not a gimmick ☺
It’s such a great feeling to have plenty of water. As long as we’re careful and we don’t waste water, I’m starting to think that this could be a permanent solution. I’m looking around at all of the dried up ponds and creeks and I am so thankful that I have a WM system and that I think I’ve finally figured it out.

This Product Does EXACTLY What They State It Does
Review of the WM210MLH Well Manager®.
My well was only producing .77 GPM for my family of five, not good. All my neighbors’ wells are 400′ deep while mine is only 130′. Three different well companies each gave rough estimates of $10,000 just to drill down to the presumed 400′ depth. That price did not include raising my power lines for the drill truck to get in or any parts needed.
There had to be a better way, I thought and so began to search the internet. My searches lead me to R the Well Manager. While pricy, the WM was thousands less than a new or re-drilled well that came with no guarantee. I was pleased to see the WM210MLH that would fit in my crawl space.
Once in place I spent two days slowly filling it about 2/3rds full then had my plumber connect it while I did the electrical work. The instruction book is written in plain “talk” language as if you were talking to Mr. Reid himself. After some calculations I was able to determine the time/cycle of the well pump and flipped the switch. To my delight the well pump turned on and began to feed/fill the holding tank. We then did a full test by back flushing my water softener (that I had to shut off as it would run the well dry). As the softener did its thing the WM kept its pace filling our bladder pressure tank when needed and asking for water from the well at its specified time. Within a little over an hour the softener had back flushed (approx. 40 gallons) and the WM tank had fill to its capacity without over taxing my well.
I went from dictating when my family could take showers, flushing toilets with water from a rain barrel, doing limited laundry, not running my softener system to living a normal life all in the matter of a few hours. This product does EXACTLY what they state it does; harvest water from your well at a given rate based on your wells production without over taxing it. Plus the safety checks on it will save your well pump from burning out just in case.
Thank you for a well thought out design solution for low yielding wells.
