Does your home have low water pressure? If you’ve ruled out other possible causes of low water pressure, like leaking pipes or a faulty pressure reducing valve, you may want to consider installing a water pressure booster pump. These devices use an electric pump and pressure tank to adjust the water pressure of incoming water from the water mains at the street, putting it at an ideal pressure of about 45-55 PSI.
At A1 Sewer & Drain Services, we provide water booster pump installation service in New Jersey, along with sewer pump installation and sump pump installation. We also offer water booster pump repair and replacement. For a free consultation and cost estimate, call us any time at 201-645-0888.
Why Install a Booster Pump?
Water pressure booster pumps installation is an inexpensive and effective solution to chronic low water pressure, or for ensuring suitable pressure under heavy use. The pump has a closed expansion tank, which has a bladder and is pressurized. The pump pulls water into the tank, compressing the air in the bladder and pressurizing the water. The pumps can either be activated manually, or powered by an on-demand system that monitors the water system and activates the pump when there is an increased need for water.
Booster pump installation is useful if the water pressure in your area is unusually low. They can also be helpful for large families that create periodic high water demand, such as that caused by multiple people showering at the same time.
Before calling a plumber for water booster pump installation, it’s recommended that you rule out problems that could be causing unusually low water pressure in your home. Some of the most common causes of low water pressure include:
- Clogged pipes. Debris or gradual mineral buildup inside the pipes can obstruct water flow, potentially lowering water pressure at faucets and fixtures. Mineral deposits can be removed by plumbers using specialized chemical preparations.
- Leaking or corroded pipes. Metal pipes corrode over time, which can lead to leaks. Leaking pipes can suffer from lowered water pressure, as well as potentially causing water damage in surrounding areas.
- Problems or construction at nearby water mains. If low water pressure is also a problem for your neighbors, it’s possible that the problem is in a nearby water main. Broken or burst mains can cause an abrupt decrease in household water pressure in homes and buildings served by the faulty main. You can call your water company to determine whether this is the case.
- Faulty pressure reducing valve. If the incoming water pressure from the water main is too high, you may be required to have a pressure reducing valve installed to lower the water pressure to an ideal 45-55 PSI.
If you’ve ruled out plumbing problems that could cause low water pressure, installing a water booster pump can help improve water pressure throughout your home.
Water Booster Pump Installation NJ
At A1 Sewer & Drain Services, we offer water booster pump installation service in northern New Jersey. We’ve helped many homeowners improve their household water pressure by simply installing a booster pump.
Before installing the pump, we’ll generally test the water pressure with a pressure gauge. If the pressure is below 30 PSI, it’s too low. The pressure booster system attaches to your main water line. The pump’s output goes into the water pressure tank, and from there, it enters your home plumbing system at the right pressure.
