This brief article outlines the basic installation layout for water pressure booster pumps coupled with back-up water tanks. Where possible, we recommend the use of both water pressure booster pumps and water tank stands. Water tanks on tank stands ensure there is always some pressure available, even in the event of a power failure.
The typical installation consists of a booster pump and back up water tank
The pump and water tank need to as close together as possible and a power supply will have to be installed at the chosen site for the pump and tank.
The water tank and pump are connected into the main water supply to the property. The water supply is routed into the water tank thereafter it goes to the pump and back into the water supply and boosts your pressure in the house or office. The water is constantly going through the tank so there is no chance of stagnant water.
A supply tank is necessary for the installation for it to work effectively. If you have a pressure problem then there is not sufficient water coming into the system, therefore you cannot boost the system without a backup water supply. A booster pump needs water for it to work effectively therefore if there is not sufficient water coming in the pump will run dry and cannot run at its full potential.
With a backup water tank you will never be without water again when the municipality are busy with emergency repairs and maintenance that can sometimes take days.
