Do you have low water pressure? When two or more water systems are being used at once, does your pressure reduce dramatically? Are external water fluctuations affecting your internal water pressure? Do you have low incoming municipal water supply pressure? If you answered yes to any one of these, then a Residential Water Booster pump is the answer. Depending on the size of your home and your irrigation system, Miami Pumps can help you choose a Residential Water Booster pump that’s best for you to deliver great water pressure throughout your home and water systems. That is why it’s important to first learn how much water pressure you have now and how high the booster pump will increase the pressure once it’s installed.
When thinking of a residential water pump, it’s important to remember that the needs of a single family home will not be the same as those of a mansion, or a home situated on a hilltop. It’s also important to remember that Residential Water Booster pumps only “boost” the pressure of existing water. If your home’s water demands exceed the actual incoming water supply capacity, you will need a water storage tank as you will eventually run out of water.
Where is the residential water pump going to be located and is there an electrical outlet near the place of instillation? Residential water pumps need enough room to breathe and for maintenance. While the unit is small, the space it’s located in should allow for it to be reached with little trouble. Also, should you have an electrical outlet nearby, you should be comfortable with it being the designated outlet for your residential water pump.
Also, before committing to a residential water pump, it’s important to know how much PSI (pounds per square inch) you currently have. To do this, you can test the existing water pressure using a water pressure gauge. It is not recommended for it to exceed 75 psi, so if your current system is coming in at 50 psi and you are in the market for residential water pumps, then you should look for one with a psi of 25, as anything above this may be bad for your plumbing. Our Miami Pumps experts can help guide you in this process.
