Booster Pump Installation

What is a booster pump?

A booster pump is often used to help in situations where there is a lack of water pressure, or water pressure is inconsistent. People will often opt to install a booster pump when they have a shower fitted to ensure they always have good pressure in the shower.

If you need a booster pump for your property, whether domestic or commercial – or perhaps you’re not sure whether you need one or not, and want to talk over your options with an expert, give us a call.

Do I need a booster pump?

Here are some instances where a booster pump may be used:

  • For a domestic shower with low water pressure
  • Moving water up a hill
  • For cleaning involving a high pressure water jet
  • Pumping water through a building, eg a block of flats or high rise office block

What is the difference between a booster pump andn a transfer pump?

A transfer pump is used to transfer a large amount of water at low pressure, whereas a booster pump is used to transmit less water, at higher pressure. The increase in pressure from a booster pump can reduce water usage, which makes them a popular choice.

Booster Pump Repairs & Maintenance

Does my booster pump need to be serviced?

We always recommend that all pumps should receive regular scheduled maintenance checks to ensure they are working well.

Whether we have installed your booster pump or not, we will happily arrange to visit your property to carry out maintenance checks on your booster pump.

As part of our service we will check all components of your pump & controls to ensure we accurately locate and diagnose the problem before suggesting and implementing a solution.

How does a booster pump work?

Most booster pumps are centrifugal; they draw water into the pump using an impeller which moves liquid by rotating. The rotation builds pressure so that when the liquid is expelled, it is at a higher rate of pressure.
Some booster pumps have only one stage or impeller, for example in a domestic setting. Where more pressure is required, for example to move water to the top floor of a tall building or through a long network of pipes, two or more impellers may be used. With each impeller stage, the water pressure is increased
