When you use a powerful pump, you need to ensure that it can also release its pressure sufficiently. Releasing pressure is important with lighter models, but even more so with more powerful ones.
If you want to irrigate your garden, sufficient water and pressure need to be supplied to the sprinkler or multiple sprinklers. With an insufficient supply, water from the sprinklers will be unable to reach far enough and irrigate the entire garden as planned.
A groundwater source that contains large amounts of iron/rust may damage not only your pump's interior but also its exterior if it comes into contact with water when you spray your garden.
Booster pumps operate by means of a mechanical or electronic pressure switch, that measures the current water pipe pressure, enabling the pump to switch on or switch off automatically. If a pressure switch is not set correctly or too sensitively, the pump may not perform optimally. This blog will help solve that problem.
Watering a garden with water from an outside tap is usually possible if it involves a small size garden. However, if a longer hose needs to be connected or if multiple sprinklers are to be used at the same time, the amount of water and pressure is often too low. You may wonder whether in that case it would be possible to connect a water pump - for example, a garden pump or booster pump - to an outside tap in order to increase the pressure.
After a long, hot, and very dry summer, it is time to store your garden or booster pump. After all, you usually do not need to irrigate your garden during the autumn and winter seasons. We provide information below about how your pump should be stored.
Many of our pumps are supplied with a kit to be used for the suction connection. In principle, you need just one of our suction hoses to pump water and, in most cases, can start immediately. We also offer solutions if longer distances need to be bridged or the pipe is to be placed underground.
If you are not sure whether to replace your circulation pump, please read the information in the following sections. You can determine immediately whether the pump needs to be replaced.
Increasingly more people place a water well in their garden to collect rainwater, which is then filtered and reused. To be able to do this, a water well always needs to be equipped with a pump. In this article, you can read about which borehole pump model works best for you.
There are different types of water pumps, and the type you should order depends on its intended use. In this article we provide information about the different types of water pumps and their uses. Once you have read carefully the information on this page, you will know exactly which pump is best for your purpose.
There are different types of water pumps, with the submersible pump being the one most commonly used. The article on this page will provide you with information about what a submersible pump is and when it can be used, as well as how to find the most suitable water pump for your situation.
A submersible pump is one that has to be immersed in water, and is normally used to drain water. These pumps are used in situations that involve flooding, such as rising groundwater in cellars or basements, flooded boats, or flooded areas.
Just like garden pumps, booster pumps - also known as boosters or pressure-boosting pumps - are self-priming.
A garden pump is one that is used to obtain water from a well, a canal, a lake, or a ditch, and provides high pressure to irrigate a garden or plots of land. The device is fitted with impellers that push the water from the pump under a certain pressure. By means of hoses, this water can be pumped to an impeller, an irrigator, or a sprinkler, which in turn irrigate the soil.
The term water pump is a common name for a broad-based group of products, which, in many cases, are used to transfer water under pressure.
After you receive your order, you will want to begin installing the water pump as quickly as possible. Our aim is to help make installing it as easy as possible.
If your underfloor heating pump has broken down and may need to be replaced, it will be important for you to know exactly what is wrong. This article provides more information about this type of pump.
So you're looking for a pump, but what do you need one for? Do you want a pump to spray/irrigate your garden or land, or to use rainwater or well water in the house? Do you need a pump to increase the water pressure in your pipes, or perhaps to drain a space or cellar? As you can see, we supply a wide range of pumps, and for almost any situation. However, before buying a pump, it is important to know what exactly you are looking for. We have many models in stock and can provide one quickly. We will be happy to help you further once you know what you want the pump to do.
Imagine that you immerse your old or new submersible pump in water and turn it on. You hear it running, but it does not drain any water from the space. What is going on here, and how can you solve the problem?
You have installed a booster pump that does not switch off automatically, even though all the draw-off points are closed. How can you solve this problem? For you to understand this problem, we first need to explain how booster pumps actually work. Then it will be easier to understand what causes the problem and how it can be resolved.
Discharge hoses are supplied with three separate connecting pieces and several already attached. Discharge hoses can be interconnected with each other without extra accessories, which is possible if you have ordered two or more of these hoses at the same time.
A heating-circulation pump plays an essential role in keeping your home comfortably warm. It forms the heart of the heating system, and ensures that hot water is transported to the heating appliances. This pump also ensures optimal heat control.
Not only is an appropriate pump setup essential but also the way it is connected to the pipes. The pipe system has to be checked carefully for a pump to be able to operate optimally. This is where things usually go wrong, but this can be avoided by paying close attention to a system's actual pipe diameters. Although this usually requires a greater time investment, you will benefit from it in the long term.
We provide several series of water pumps that come without a power cable. This is because these pumps are used mostly in the professional market, which allows the user to determine which length of cable they prefer.
The cold winter months are once more on the way, and we have to start heating our houses and buildings again. You probably know already that your gas bill is going to go up, but did you realise that your energy costs also rise during the winter season?
Read this article if your house has an underfloor heating system, or you plan to have one fitted. It will save you a sizeable amount of money each year.
We frequently hear that self-priming pumps (e.g. garden and booster pumps) have difficulty drawing in water. In most instances, it involves water that needs to be pumped from wells or boreholes that are several metres deep. Although people often think it is a mechanical problem, in 99% of the cases the cause of the problem may be much simpler.
Summer's slowly approaching, with plenty of sunshine and little rain. People love the summer, but our gardens have a very different opinion. During this period, the grass and plants in your garden require a lot of water and a simple watering can is often not enough to keep up. The decision to buy a sprinkler is therefore very simple, but how exactly do you supply this sprinkler with water?
Are you installing an additional washbasin, a shower, or a washing machine, or does your tap/shower not supply enough water? In older houses, the water pressure is usually quite low and often needs to be boosted. But which water pumps are suitable for this?
Dirty-water pumps are often used on building sites where puddles caused by heavy rainfall may obstruct the construction operations. However, private consumers can also be confronted with, for example, cellars that are flooded with dirty water. In such situations, it may be necessary to buy a dirty-water pump to drain the area/site as quickly as possible.
In November 2013, Waterpump.co.uk added a new puddle pump to its collection: the DAB Nova Up 180 MNA, which has proven to be a great success. Of all the pumps available on the market, this pump from the Italian water pump specialist, DAB, works closest to the surface.
For all submersible pumps, booster pumps, and garden pumps, we supply multifunctional discharge hoses that are 10 metres long.
Autumn is underway, with rain showers that flood the streets, causing water levels to rise in cellars and crawl spaces.
If the ditch is shallow and contains relatively little water, chances are that solid particles will also be pumped with it. This situation should be avoided with regard to garden and booster pumps because they are unable to handle solid particles. The hose can be fitted with a filter. However, the filter can also become blocked, as a result of which the pump will be unable to draw in any water and may run dry.
The name says it all: a submersible pump is immersed in a liquid, and it pumps away water that is not needed.
Booster systems, also known as booster pumps, are used to maintain pressure in the water supply system. They can be used for several purposes:
Water pumps come in a variety of models and sizes and can be used for a number of different situations. Almost, every type of water can be pumped as long as the appropriate pump is used. So, what pump do I need?
Water, submersible, and garden pumps are complex products, and this leads to a fair number of questions about their performance. For this reason, Waterpump.co.uk intends to post informative blogs in the near future, in which, in cooperation with the manufacturer, DAB, we will answer the most frequently asked questions and also discuss examples from practice.
