Water Pressure Booster Pumps: Uses and Applications

May 8, 2018

Many households are fitted with pressure reduction valves. Essentially, mains water is forced through wide pipes, so the pressure needs to be dropped before the water enters a home. Conversely, water pressure booster pumps increase this fluid force. If you're wondering why there's a need to ramp up water pressure, wonder no longer, for the answers are impending. Let's start with land topography, the terrain the water pipes journey across.

Boosting Terrain-Hampered Water

Out in the wilds, among the infrastructural pipes and mains water channels, water culverts carve their way up steep slopes and down into sunken streets. The tops of these hills are sometimes crowned with water storage tanks. You've seen them as part of the local skyline, towering over the region below. Water pressure booster pumps play a major role in this height defeating solution. Near the storage container, or perhaps at the bottom of the slope, a pump house is buzzing away against the street noise. It's in here that the lazy fluid is forced rapidly uphill by motors and pumping mechanisms. Similarly, high-rise apartments require that extra mechanical oomph to make sure every resident receives a healthy outpouring of tap water. In this case, that storage tank is likely located on the roof of the high-rise, so gravity is working in concert with the pumping system.

Solving the Velocity-to-Pressure Riddle

Meanwhile, in a swimming pool or garden pond, the water pressure is falling. A peak consumption period is being experienced. People are making their tea during a commercial break or they're watering the garden before the sun scorches the grass. Municipal water pressure booster pumps stop pressure spikes from impacting a citywide infrastructural network. Beyond that mains threshold, there are booster motors and mechanisms taking care of business at the local level. They ensure an adequate pressure, therefore the flow velocity of this localized resource is properly maintained. Back at the swimming pool, the entire volume of water is rapidly filtered and conditioned because of this domestically incorporated water boosting system.

Water pressure booster pumps regulate mains water and wastewater flow rates. Thanks to that pressure amplifying feature, peak usage spikes are smoothed. Furthermore, domestic units carry out the same duties in high-rise complexes. They provide needed fluid force when firefighters couple their hoses to hydrants and risers, and they ensure that all-important complete-cycle filtration and conditioning flow rate when swimming pools and pool ponds are processing their heavily soiled contents. Finally, irrigation solutions function efficiently when these pumps are in motion, as do HVAC circulating systems.
