All of the cold water booster sets from Flowmech are designed to deliver constant water pressure at variable flow demands. We provide WRAS listed booster pumps for potable water applications, as well as valves and 316 stainless steel pipework.

What is a water booster pump?

Put simply, a water booster pump is a small mechanical device that is used to maintain water pressure when the controls recognise lowering pressure and flow rate. A booster set is often used to improve the water supply in buildings where there is insufficient pressure and flow available or water storage is required.

A water booster pump, like the ones that we supply at Flowmech, is designed to boost performance automatically. Offering a high level of efficiency, it’s no surprise that they are used in hospitals and industrial units.

How do water booster pumps work?

The way that a water booster pump works is simple. Fluid is drawn into the pump from a break tank fed by a mains water supply and water enters through the pump suction into the volute (pump body) where impellers, when activated, generate the flow & pressure. The impellers found within the water booster pump are close tolerance high efficiency that spins at a high rate to boost the pressure of water.

The water that enters the system will be delivered at a constant pressure through a varying flow range.

What are the main features of the home booster pump?

There are several important features associated with the home booster pump and these include the following:

Flow – the flow rate describes the optimum volume of water that can be delivered by the home booster pump expressed in litres per second or litre per minute.

Pressure – the pressure or bar rating refers to the optimum pressure of the water that is delivered by the set.

System – depending on which water booster pump you choose from our extensive range, it will either be inverter driven variable speed or fixed speed pressure switch operated. Either system is activated when there is a drop in the pressure.

Impellers – the more impellers that a home booster pump has, the higher pressure the set will be capable of delivering. A home booster pump is selected to deliver the required pressure with maximum efficiency.

Why do you need a booster set?

Is your shower lacking power or fluctuating? Perhaps you’re fed up with it taking hours to wash the dishes- or run a bath. These are all problems that arise when water pressure is poor and a booster set from Flowmech can make a big difference.

Here at Flowmech, we supply a standard range of booster sets that can be installed to the existing plumbing system but we also manufacture bespoke booster sets which are guaranteed to meet site space constraints. No matter which booster set you choose from our range, they are each wet tested and manufactured to be easily maintained- allowing you to repair or replace components.

When it comes to choosing a home booster set, our technical sales department will size booster sets based upon building type and diversity with advice on the best operation and storage to suit the duty.

Our commissioning/service department offer after sales service for all our equipment as well as other manufacturers’ products.
