Water pump is the main element of water supply and irrigation systems. Operation of the whole system depends on its functionality. If the device is initially chosen incorrectly, it has not enough power or if construction design of the device is not suitable for the functions performed, failures are inevitable. In this case, you will either have to buy additional devices or change the model. It is necessary to take into account the construction design features, principle of operation, purpose and technical characteristics of the water lifting equipment to choose best water pump for house, cottage or garden. Each type of pump has its own design features, but the general principle of the operation of all pumping devices is the same. When the motor is turned on, a vacuum is created inside the housing. Due to the low pressure, the water is sucked into the vacuum chamber, moved to the outlet pipe and forced through it into the hose or pipeline. The force of “squeezing” water is determined by the pressure in the system. It must be high enough to overcome the hydraulic resistance. All pumps operate on the principle of drawing water through the inlet and ejection through the outlet pipe.
When choosing an electric booster pump for your home, cottage or garden, first of all consider its purpose. There is no ideal equipment “for everything”. First of all think what main tasks will be to perform the device, whether it will only work on pumping clean water or there is a possibility that it will have to lift the water with sand and mud.
When choosing a specific model, be sure to consider the most important technical parameters: power, performance, efficiency, maximum pressure. If you have doubts about the correctness of the calculations, consult a specialist.
