Booster Pump Installation
What does a booster pump do?
A booster pump boosts water pressure. It is used in places where there’s not enough pressure, or the water pressure is inconsistent.
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?
Booster pumps may be used in these situations:
- 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
In order to boost water, it is not possible to simiply connect a pump to the water main; first you will need a break tank, to collect water from the mains. A booster pump is then used to boost the water from the tank. This is an important consideration as it is not possible to successfully boost water directly from the mains.
How much does it cost to install a booster pump?
The cost to install a booster pump will depend on the type of pump you need. This is something best discussed with our experts who can advise you on the best course of action and provide a quote for all parts and installation.

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.
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. In some instances a pump could have up to ten or more stages, depending on how big it is and what it is required to do.
