Booster Pumps

May 20, 2020

What is a booster pump?

  • For your city water supply, a booster pump is a pump which will increase the pressure of the water supply for your home or your irrigation system.
  • Booster pumps are generally found in areas where the city water pressure is considered low.

How Does a Booster Pump work?

  • A booster pump consists of a pump and an expansion tank. The pump is installed in the main water supply line.
  • When a booster pump runs it pumps water into the expansion tank where it compresses an opposing volume of air, hence increasing the pressure.
  • Once the pressure reaches a desired set point the pump shuts off.
  • This increase in pressure is stored in the expansion tank until there is a demand for water such as a faucet being turned on.
  • When the pressure drops below a certain point the pump turns back on and repeats the cycle.

Do booster pumps increase flow?

  • Booster pumps don’t necessarily increase water usage but they do increase the flow rate of water. 

How much does a booster pump cost?

  • Booster pumps vary in price and cost to install. As a general rule of thumb, expect to pay a minimum of $1,000.
  • If you are interested in receiving a no cost, no obligation quote please contact us to schedule an appointment.

What is the best water pressure booster pump? 

  • There are several manufacturers but Grundfos and Starite make quality units.

How do you install a pressure pump? 

  • Pressure or booster pumps are installed in the main water supply line.
  • The main water line is routed into the pump and the discharge pipe is plumbed into an expansion tank with a “tee”.
  • Electrical power is used to operate the pump and the pump controls.
  • The system pressure is monitored to tell the pump when to kick “on” and “off”.
  • The pump manufacturer will supply their recommended installation directions. Care must be taken to follow the directions correctly for the system to work properly.
