What is a water pressure pump and how does it work?
One of the most common problems with the water supply of households is that the water does not have sufficient pressure. The best solution is to install a water pressure pump. In this article we will tell you what these pumps are and how they work.
Whether it’s because your house doesn’t have an elevated tank, the pipes don’t have the right diameter, or because you live in the upper floors of a building, not having enough water pressure is a problem that affects your everyday life.
For all these reasons, the best way to avoid these problems in the long run is to install a water pressure pump. This type of pump increases the pressure of the water that comes out of the faucet or reaches the appliances of any home.
How does a water pressure pump work?
The operation of this type of pump is very simple. It has an inlet or a pipe that sucks in the water, which is then driven by a motor to the outlet pipe. This allows the water to come out with much more pressure and speed.
What is a water pressure pump used for?
The main objective of a water pressure pump is to provide a supply network with a higher water pressure. It can be used in houses with very small pipe diameters or in multi-storey buildings, so that the water reaches the upper floors with sufficient pressure.
There are other types of pressure equipment, such as fire fighting equipment and industrial pressure equipment.
Types of water pressure pumps
The main task of a water pressure pump is to optimise water consumption in the household. We have two basic types of water pressure pumps:
- Water pressure pump under the tank: This type of pump only works when water is flowing. This means that they are able to detect when a tap is opened or when the washing machine is taking up water. At this moment they are switched on to exert more pressure on the water so that it arrives under optimal conditions.
- Cistern water pressure pump: This type of pump always works. Its task is to maintain the constant water pressure in a system.
