Choosing the right hose for your submersible pump is important for the device to work effectively. In this blog, we look into the discharge hoses available for various types of submersible pumps, covering aspects such as diameter, length, and durability.
During the cold winter months, frozen water pumps can be a serious problem. It is therefore important to understand why freezing can harm your pump and what you can do to prevent it.
Submersible pumps are currently very popular, but people often do not know which model is most suitable in their situation. To give you a better idea of their applications, we highlight in this blog our best-selling submersible pumps in terms of type of water.
Learn how to maintain your central heater's efficiency by bleeding it in just a few steps. With basic tools and a little know-how, you can keep your home warm and cozy during the winter. Regular bleeding prevents issues like noisy radiators and uneven heating. If problems persist, replacing the circulating pump might be necessary. We provide guidance on choosing the right replacement.
If you are planning to renovate your home or maybe add an extra bathroom in a location where it is difficult to connect sanitary devices to the sewage system, a Saniflo macerator might be an ideal solution. This handy device enables you to install a toilet or bathroom wherever you want.
To assist you with the installation process, we have created an instructional video. This video explains step by step what actions you need to take. This video uses the DAB Genix as an example. Even with another variant, you can largely follow the steps in the video.
This blog consists of two parts. The first explains how a DAB Control-D is mechanically connected to a garden pump the second explains how to connect the device’s power cable to the pump.
We consume an average of 142 litres of clean tap water per person per day. About half of it is used for drinking, cooking, or taking a shower or bath. The other half is used for applications that do not actually require tap water, which is a usage that amounts to pure waste. You can save considerably in costs and act sustainably by collecting and using, in other words recovering, rainwater.
Everyone loves a lush, colourful garden, but if you want to keep it that way, you need to maintain it and to give your plants sufficient water. Sprinkler systems are ideal devices for this purpose, and are simple to install by yourself with the right materials.
Whether you use a water pump for domestic purposes, to spray the garden, or for industrial purposes, preventing it from breaking down will save a lot of stress and costs. In this article we discuss the possible causes for a water pump to break down and what needs to be done to prevent this. If you recognise and tackle potential problems at an early stage, you will benefit longer from a well-functioning water pump.
Flushing a toilet is a sustainable practice and will reduce your annual water bills considerably. Normally, rainwater ends up in the sewage system and is purified, which is costly and unnecessary if it is used for particular purposes. Groundwater or rainwater is perfectly fine for flushing a toilet or spraying a garden.
Some time ago, we had the opportunity to advise Bosch on a showroom setup for one of their new washing machines. After a successful test setup, this setup was eventually rolled out to more than 100 appliance stores, with a booster pump from us installed in each store.
The cost of maintaining a swimming pool can be very high if it is not done correctly. To keep costs as low as possible, you will need an efficient swimming pool pump. The most suitable model in this situation depends, among other things, on the size of your swimming pool. In this blog, we explain how to calculate your pool’s volume in cubic metres.
You may want to spray your flower or vegetable garden properly but have no water available from external sources, such as a canal, a pond, or a ditch. In this case, you may want to consider installing a well. However, this can only be done if the intended area is suitable and has the appropriate features.
Water your plants with natural water if you really want to give them a treat. This could be rainwater collected in a rainwater reservoir, for example, or water from a ditch or canal. Natural water is full of healthy minerals that are beneficial for your plants. You will save considerably on your water bills and contribute to a more sustainable environment.
To create a beautiful, colourful garden, you need to spray your plants often. However, using tap water (drinking water) will result in higher water bills and the unnecessary costs of purifying sewage water. An alternative, sustainable solution is to use groundwater, a natural resource that can be taken straight from the ground with a water pump. Groundwater can also be used for other applications such as flushing the toilet. Here you can learn about the advantages and challenges of spraying with groundwater and read our tips for an efficient and sustainable use of this valuable resource.
Rainwater often disappears straight into the sewage system, which would be a waste. Did you know that more than 50% of the precious tap water used in and around the house can be replaced by rainwater? Filtered rainwater can be used for garden irrigation, for flushing a toilet, for supplying water to a washing machine, and for cleaning your car.
If you are interested in sustainability and the latest technological innovations, we are pleased to tell you about the latest DAB LIVE! App. This App was designed to make water pumps both efficient and interactive, thereby contributing to a more sustainable, environmentally friendly future.
It is not surprising that everyone is looking for ways to save energy, because the current prices have gone through the roof. Many people buy a pump switch for their underfloor heating system in order to reduce energy costs. This is not always the best solution, however, and certainly not in combination with an A-label pump. More information is provided in this blog.
Are you experiencing flooding? With these measures, you will be well prepared for a wet period and you will also contribute to a better environment!
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.
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 central heating 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.
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.
