We are increasingly asked if it is possible to boost the water pressure in a domestic installation. This is commonly because an existing water main has had its pressure reduced to combat leaks or new buildings are sharing an existing water main which cannot cope with the increased demand at peak times or you have just had a combi boiler fitted.
NO! Fitting a pump directly to the main is not possible for two reasons:
If all of your outlets are at least a metre below your storage tank then a simple flow-switch such as the FS150 can be used, if as is more common some or all of your outlets are not at least a metre below your storage tank then a BRIO pressure sensing controller should be used, this will turn the pump on when it detects a drop in pressure in your pipe work and stop when the flow stops. Both of these controllers will also protect your pump against dry-running. If you have a particularly large amount of bathrooms which may or may not be used simultaneously then you may wish to consider using the Sirio controller along with the 4CR80 pump. This allows you to set a pressure which you would like to maintain through out the property and will slow down and speed up the pump as more or less outlets are opened to maintain a constant pressure at all of your outlets
If you are looking for an out of the box solution to your problem which will involve the least amount of additional plumbing and time spent on installation then you may wish to consider one of our all in one pump and tank solutions. They are a packaged water pressure boosting solution and incorporate a Diver 75m or 100m submersible water pump with equivalent performance to the Pedrollo pumps and either a Brio or Sirio controller. All they require is for you to plumb your incoming water main into the float valve entering the tank and from the outlet of the controller to the plumbing in your house.
