What is a Water Pressure Booster Pump?

A water booster pump is a machine that enhances low water pressure and flow, providing the necessary boost to elevate your water pressure to the desired level. The water pressure booster pump intermediates between the water source and endpoints such as faucets, taps, and showers.

Several factors can cause low water pressure:

Distance from the Water Source
Low City Water Pressure
Additional Water Systems
Plumbing Problems

Booster Pump Types

Booster pumps are vital for increasing water flow and pressure in various applications. There are different types based on specific needs. Here’s a brief overview:

Single-stage booster pumps

Ideal for detached houses and residential buildings with moderate pressure requirements. They are usually sufficient for a building’s needs.

Multi-stage booster pumps

Used when water pressure requirements are incredibly high. Applications include pumping water up hills, for residential areas with multiple buildings, maintaining city water pressure, and transporting water through long pipes.

Home Booster Pumps

A single water booster pump can increase water pressure throughout a house. They are useful for homes with low-recovery wells that do not produce enough water to meet household demand.

Booster Pumps with Expansion Tanks

These pumps use expansion or hydro-pneumatic storage tanks to augment a booster system. The tank provides additional space for water as it expands and prevents the booster pump from cycling on and off each time the faucet is turned on.

At Hunter Pumps, we specialise in meeting your water pressure needs, whether it’s for residential homes or large complexes. Our selection of booster pumps ensures efficiency and reliability. Count on us for consistent and customised water solutions that keep the flow of life smooth.

How Does a Pressure Booster Pump Work?

A booster pump does magic by ramping up water pressure to supercharge the flow. It’s kinda like a fan, you know, with blades that spin to boost the airflow. Inside the pump, an impeller cranks up the water flow and pressure. Most booster pumps are centrifugal pumps that use an impeller or multiple impellers to increase water pressure.

A booster pump consists of several key components.


Powers the pump.


Rotates to move water through the pump.

Inlet and Outlet

Water enters through the inlet and exits through the outlet.

Pressure or Flow Sensing Devices

Monitor and control the operation of the pump.

Some booster pumps utilise a rotating propeller, while others employ an oscillating diaphragm. Pumps with oscillating diaphragms use two plates – one with a cup and one with a notch – to push and expel water. As the plates come together, the cup is compressed, forcing the water out. When they separate, more water is drawn in.

Booster pumps are usually used in water systems or applications with low waste contamination. They team up with other pumps, so they can’t move fluid independently in a system. Their main purpose is to “boost” the performance of an existing pumping system.

Installing a Water Pressure Booster Pump

Installing a water pressure booster pump is a handy solution for homes and buildings with low water pressure. It’s a multi-step process that requires a bit of technical know-how. So, here’s a step-by-step guide to help you with the installation:

Choose the Right Pump
Gather Necessary Tools and Materials
Turn Off the Water Supply
Prepare the Installation Site
Cut the Water-Supply Pipe
Install the Booster Pump
Secure the Connections
Prime the Pump
Restore Power and Water
Test the System

Note: If you’re not comfortable handling plumbing tools or if the installation seems complex, it’s highly recommended to hire a professional plumber for the installation. Proper installation is crucial for the efficient and safe operation of a water pressure booster pump.
