Product description

The DAB Booster Silent water pressure boosting pump is suitable for increasing pressure in your water pipes, for supplying water (e.g. rainwater for the toilet or cleaning), or for using water from wells and tanks for irrigation purposes. The 3.7-bar 3M version is the most common model for any household.

The pump's main feature is that it is so quiet (67 dB). Thanks to its 2-litre water reservoir, the pump does not constantly switch on/off if water is required. which greatly reduces energy consumption.

The pump is fitted with an electronic control feature, by means of which possible faults in your water circuit are indicated clearly, as well as with a dry-running protection system and a non-return valve.

Summary

  • Provides sufficient pressure and capacity for about five sprinklers
  • The hose that can be used for this pump has a diameter of 1" for the delivery connection and 1" for the suction connection
  • Draws water from a maximum depth of 8 metres
  • The maximum delivery head is 37 metres, which equals 3.7 bar output

Water tank

This pump is equipped with a water tank, which may be handy in a number of situations; for example, if the pump needs to supply water occasionally (drip watering). In that case, a pump without a tank will start pulsating (continuously switching on and off). A pump that is fitted with a tank can supply water from its tank so that the pump does not need to switch on immediately. Such pumps are very handy to use with, for instance, irrigation tubes and controlled irrigation, or for filling a toilet reservoir, which is usually also a gradual process. A second advantage of a tank is that it greatly reduces water hammer, the hydraulic shock - or ‘blows’ - that water pipes experience if a water supply point is opened hard and fast. Pumps that provide instant high pressure may increase instances of water hammer, and are therefore equipped with a (built-in) tank.

Quiet

This pump is labelled as being 'quiet'. Of course, like any electric appliance, a pump can be heard, but special attention has been given to its noise level. Thanks to its ultra-low noise level, the pump is highly suitable to be placed indoors, without being disturbing. The perception of noise is subjective, of course, but no other pumps are quieter than these.

Dry-running protection

The name says it all: this pump is protected from running dry. Most pumps cannot, if at all, operate dry for long, which usually ends in the pump immediately burning out and/or seizing. For example, this could happen if the source has run dry and the pump can no longer draw water from it. Garden and booster pumps are particularly sensitive to running dry. Some borehole pumps and somewhat more advanced garden pumps are already equipped with built-in dry-running protection. Others can be easily fitted with a dry-running protection system: for example, with a separate one or with the DAB Control-D. This definitely guarantees that the garden or booster pump will not run dry.

DAB

DAB is one of the best-selling brands of water pumps for consumers as well as for professionals. These pumps adhere to a very high standard of quality, with each pump being tested manually by a staff member before it is put on the market. This is the only way DAB can guarantee that you obtain the absolute best. They have a solution regarding almost any situation, whether it involves an industrial application or simply spraying a garden. DAB's professional quality is also reflected in its consumer line. The DAB pumps we replace for people are usually over ten years old.

Automatic activation / deactivation

This pump switches on or off automatically if you open or close a water point that is connected to the pump. In many cases, this feature is a considerable advantage: for example, when irrigating a garden with a hand-held sprayer, or supplying a toilet or washing machine with rainwater. It is also useful if you want to increase the water pressure in your home. Unlike standard garden water pumps, water pressure pumps - because of the difference in pressure - 'notice' when one or more water points are opened or closed. This is how the pump knows that it needs to start or stop. Standard water pressure pumps (which are mounted to a tank) are equipped with a mechanical switch, and the more advanced ones have electronic switches. Both systems have advantages and disadvantages. The mechanical switch is reliable but can either not be set or it is difficult to do so, while the electronic version can be set but is dependent on electricity.
