Garden water / Water pressure pump
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.
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 is meant to help solve that particular problem.
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.
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.
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.
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 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?
