Domestic Water Pump Service

Domestic Water Pumps

We are a Water Pump Service company based in Dublin. We were founded to help people with low pressure situations in their water supply. Most modern homes and apartments make use of a water pump to add extra pressure to the water supply where needed.

This can be achieved by using a shower pump, a booster pump or a pressurised system water pump.

These pumps are used to increase the water flow rate in areas where the incoming mains water pressure is low and is not adequate for good showering or poor tap pressure is present.

There a three main types of pumps typically used in homes around Dublin. They are Positive Head Pumps, Negative Head Pumps & Whole house Pumps. Normally they are one of three manufacturers

 Stuart Turner PumpsGrundfos Pumps or Walrus Pumps.

If you see your pump below and need help or information on it the please click on the picture of it.

Positive Head Water Pump

– used with a vented hot water cylinder where the cold water storage tanks are in the attic of a house and sufficient “head” pressure is available, (i.e. where the height distance between the bottom of the water supply and the top of the hot water cylinder is great enough to push water out of the expansion pipe on the cylinder).

Negative Head Water Pump

– used when there is insufficient “head” pressure to activate the operation of the pump when a shower/tap is opened. They are used mainly in apartments that have combined hot and cold water cylinders.

Whole House Water Pump

The last type of water pumps that are used where a pressurised water system is installed. These use stored water from tanks and feed a pressurised water cylinder and every pipe that comes from this cylinder is then pressurised.
