Booster Pump Accessories

There are three important accessories for booster pumps: acoustic insulators, slave tanks and pressure managers. Booster pumps and compressors are very noisy when operating and should be acoustically isolated on a resilient anti vibration pad. This pad is usually made of a composite material and should be fixed to a heavy base such as a concrete slab.

In many households, smaller pumps can be fixed to string plywood or MDF that in turn is glued to the top layer of the anti-vibration pad. If space allows, an MDF enclosure can provide further acoustic isolation 18 mm MDF is the best material for this accessory. However, the size of the enclosure should be large enough to reduce any heat build up around the pump. Slave tanks are a very practical option for boosting cold water supply in high occupancy households that use booster shower pumps, or in those where the mains water supply is insufficient to meet pressurised hot and cold water demands. They can add an extra average capacity of 180 litres to the main tank.

Pressure managers can be used to start and stop pumps according to the consumption required. The PM1-15 pressure manager can be used with Grundfos JP5 and JP6 pumps. These are useful accessories for submersible borehole pumps and can cut in a 1.5 bar and cut out at no flow. Other pressure managers can cut in at 2.2 bar. Once the pressure manager starts the pump at the start pressure, it keeps it running as long as there is flow. There is also a dry running protection and cycling alarm for increased safety.
