Booster Pump Sets

Overview

Water pressure booster pumpsets are required when an increase in the water pressure is required. They offer pressure boosting solutions for tank water and domestic mains supply systems and are usually required to provide adequate water pressure to upper floors of high-rise buildings. Also known as pressure boosters or water booster system they can be installed on new construction and retrofit projects.

At Austere pumps, we have an extensive range of variable and fixed speed pumps and booster sets, to meet the needs of the customers. All our pumps are supplied by Davey Pumps. All pumps and sets are complete, ready to install, provide ease of access and are built to AS/NZS 4020 Standard.

Process

Booster pumps can be on demand or manually activated. The on-demand booster pumps work whenever there is low water pressure and a demand for the water pressure to be boosted. The manual one’s usually come with a switch to turn them on manually whenever there is a requirement.

A water pressure booster pump works with a closed tank, which is called an expansion tank. This expansion tank has a pressurized bladder. The pump pulls water into the tank on the side of the bladder. This compresses the air in the bladder and the water becomes more pressurized.

Applications

It is usually required for high rise buildings where the water pressure on the higher floors is not sufficient enough. Therefore, it can be used for both residential as well as commercial sky scrapers and high-rise buildings.
