If your current pressure pump doesn't work well, then you might want to replace it. While upgrades sometimes work, you might be better off switching to using a different kind of pump. For example, a constant pressure pump often solves common problems in the home. What are the benefits of making this switch?
1. Get Reliable Pressure Levels
Some pressure pumps don't deliver water consistently and at the right pressure through all your home. While a pump works fine if you aren't using too many outlets, it might struggle if you are using a lot of water at once.
For example, if you're running your washer, a tap in the kitchen and a shower, then you might notice a significant drop in water pressure. The pump can't deliver the pressure you need when it has to supply multiple outlets.
A constant pressure pump works at variable speeds. This enables it to set and deliver a constant pressure that gives you the same results whether you're running one tap or multiple outlets.
2. Improve Your Pressure Efficiency
An efficient pump doesn't just deliver the right levels of pressure. It also uses energy efficiently; it runs smoothly without developing any problems. If your pump doesn't work right, then you're likely to spend more on energy bills than you strictly need to. The pump might cycle too high too often or run too long without cycling down to rest.
If your pump has to work too hard, then it is also more likely to fail. It might overheat and suffer from stress damage. A constant pressure pump is more efficient. Its variable speed system keeps it running safely and smoothly. If you aren't using much water, the system will adjust itself to save as much energy as possible. So, the pump should keep your energy costs at the right levels. It should also last longer and need fewer repairs than other pumps.
3. Reduce Pump Noise
Some pressure pumps are noisy. Even a pump that started life quietly can become a noisy nuisance as it ages if it struggles to deliver the pressure you need and then settle down again. Constant pressure pumps are quieter. They run all the time at a regular rate. So, you won't have to deal with start-up or booster noise. These pumps also reduce the chances that you'll get water hammer problems in your pipes, so you lose this noise too.
To get the best pumping solution for your home, it's best to choose products from a reliable specialist manufacturer. For example, Davey pumps work well in domestic settings. To find out more, ask your plumber for advice.
