A Water Pressure Pump is used mainly to transfer the water from your rainwater tank to the house and/or garden. They keep pressure in the line.
If a presscontrol or pressure tank set up is included on the outlet of the pump, this automates the system so that water flows when a tap is turned on and stops when the tap is closed.
For most above ground tanks the pump will be located at ground level next to the tank outlet where the water from the tank feeds directly into the pressure pump.
Underground Tanks – Some rainwater tanks are located under the ground. If this is the case then a pressure pump can be used to suck water up from the tank. Most pressure pumps are capable of sucking water up from about 6m depth. Please see my blog as there are some things you need to know about the installation when you are sucking water up from an underground tank. Alternatively a submersible pressure pump can be placed inside the tank.
Rain to Mains Pumps use water from the rainwater tank. When the tank is empty it automatically switches over to Mains water. When the tank has water it switches back. Our Rain water to Mains water changeover pumps can be found under our ‘Rain to Mains Pumps’ category
Self Priming Pumps are used when the water tank is far away from the house, the pump is higher than the water source with a straight pipe from the water source to the pump, or the pipe from the tank to the pump has a lot of bends or elbows. A range of Self Priming Pumps can be found under the ‘Self Priming Pumps’ category.
Jet Pressure Pumps are a specially modified Pump with a nozzle and venture pair inside the nose of the pump. Jet pumps are designed to generate relatively high water pressures from a single stage. They are all surface pumps and can use a pressure vessel or pressure switch so they operate automatically when a tap is turned on. You can find our jet pumps under the ‘Jet Pumps’ category.
The Deep Well Jet Pump has 2 pipes connected to an external venturi and are used to lift water from an underground tank, bore or well.
