The ABC’s of Plumbing – Pressure Booster Pump

Low water pressure in the home can have many causes. If pressure is low for the entire house, it could be a supply problem from the well or city’s municipal water supply. Your plumber can help you identify the specific cause and offer solutions.

If the municipal water supply can’t deliver enough water pressure, one option is to install a water pressure booster at the water meter. The booster works by taking the water entering from the water main and increases the pressure through an electric pump and pressure tank. A dial on top of the pump is used to adjust the pressure. A safe setting is usually somewhere between 45 to 55 psi. The tank helps to hold a supply of pressurized water so that the pump doesn’t have to work every time water is used. When the demand for water increases, the tank helps to boost flow so even pressure is maintained for all fixtures like showers, faucets and toilets.

Have questions about increasing water pressure in your home? Call ABC Southwest Plumbing & Air Conditioning. We can test the water pressure, pinpoint any problems, and offer solutions to improve the performance of your home’s plumbing system.
