What is a Booster Pump?
HOW DO BOOSTER PUMPS WORK?
A booster pump is a device that connects the water source to endpoints such as taps, faucets, and showers. A booster pump draws water from a source and pressurizes it to the necessary pressure at the outputs.
The higher the pressure, the faster the water moves through the pipes. Booster pumps are used to maintain optimal water pressure in tall or high-set structures, as well as in places where water pressure is low or fluctuates. They're often installed where a municipal water line enters a structure and set to run at desired pressure. The pump takes water from the water supply line when the pressure in the tank declines, raising the pressure in the tank and increasing the water pressure in the building.
Why You Need a Booster Pump
DO YOU NEED A BOOSTER PUMP?
Low water pressure is one of the most common issues that plagues both homes and businesses. Water pressure is the force that drives water through the pipe system to reach fixtures in the building unit, not to be confused with water flow at the tap. People need high water pressure for a variety of reasons, and there are numerous approaches to achieving it. Using a water pressure booster pump is one option.
Perhaps you've tried one of these methods if you're having trouble with low water pressure. Perhaps you tried cleaning or adjusting the aerators in the faucet heads, you've attempted to increase the volume of your pipes by retrofitting them to a greater size, or you may have even enlisted the help of a local water service inspector.
Each option has advantages and disadvantages, but if you want an efficient fix, consider purchasing a water pressure booster pump. Booster pumps are additions to a system that raise the system's fluid pressure.

THINKING OF INSTALLING A BOOSTER PUMP?
Booster pumps operate as their name suggests; they boost water pressure along the water line to recover lost pressure from water traveling through the pipes in the plumbing system.
Generally, booster pumps are centrifugal pumps that use a motor and a single or multiple impellers to draw water into the inlet and discharge water through the outlet of the pump. Most booster pumps are usually controlled by a pressure sensor that is adjustable to the desired output.

A booster pump is a centrifugal pump that uses motors to suck in water at a certain pressure level and expel it into your house at the pressure level that is most effective for your home or building! This helps prevent low water pressure in buildings and will regulate itself so you aren't spending unnecessary money on your water bill.

Yes, booster pumps will work in a power outage as long as there is still water flowing to the pump even if the motor is off! This is a common misconception, which is why it is important to consult the experts.
Make sure your booster pump has a means of shutting off the water supply such as an auto shut off valve in case of emergencies, but besides this a proper working booster pump should work no matter what the conditions.
Contact Integra Water now to make sure you aren’t left high and dry in an emergency!
Making sure you have the proper booster pump for your household will save you money in the long run! One common mistake contractors make is installing the wrong sized booster pump for the home or building they are working on. If they install an oversized booster pump this will cause the pressure in the building to be too high, and will use more energy and water than needed.
If you conduct a water test with an engineer and the water pressure exceeds 50-70 psi then you need to change the size of your water pump!
Don't wait, contact us today to save money and water with a booster pump from Integra Water!

I am so happy to have been referred to Jason at Integra by one of my family members who was a previous client. Jason effectively explained recommended treatment plan for our well water situation.
