Water Pressure Booster Pumps
Why CJ Plumbing & Heating
What Is a Water Pressure Booster Pump?
A water pressure booster pump is a device that assists in increasing the flow where there’s low water pressure. It provides an extra boost that could be needed to bring your water pressure to a more ideal level. A water booster pump could provide pressure to move water from a storage tank or throughout a whole house. This eliminates the possibility of current or future problems with your home’s pressure booster system.
What Are Water Pressure Booster Systems?
A water pressure booster system is a great way to combat the issue of low water pressure. A decrease in the flow of water is followed by an increase in pressure requirement. Regardless of the flow of water from the city supply, one or more pumps installed as a pressure booster system could result in a significant surge of water pressure in your household. These pumps come with a check valve, which is a pressure or flow sensing device. Other core components of a pressure booster pump are a motor, inlet, outlet, and impellers.
Latest pressure booster systems include variable speed pumps, which equip you with further control over pressure fluctuations. Even if one pump fails, the system still works efficiently to provide better water pressure.
Challenges Surrounding Low Water Pressure
The challenges that come with neglecting low water pressure faucets, showers, and toilets are a common dilemma for everyone, as well as the residents of the greater Chicago region. While there are certain ways to increase the water pressure, such as an elevated water tank for example, installing a water pressure booster is the most efficient and guaranteed way of achieving your desired water pressure.
Water pressure booster pumps use compressed air to increase the flow of incoming water from the city supply and give a boost to the outflow of water into your household.
Why You’re Experiencing Low Water Pressure
You may experience low water pressure for several different reasons including gravity, as it drives or slows the water flow. The further you are from the source, the more difficult it becomes for the water to get to you and reach the ideal pressure. Your local water supply line, current water system, or existing plumbing issues can also bring down your water pressure.
