There are many types of domestic water pumps in use in homes and businesses today. These include walrus pumps, Grundfos Pumps, wilo pumps and ebara pumps to name a few and there are many more! Then there are the different types of pump, positive head pumps, negative head pumps, shower booster pumps and mains- water boosting Pumps.
All of these pumps share common components and work on the exact same principles of operation. Thankfully this means that they can be repaired if necessary easily and quickly as long as you know what to do obviously…
How does a water pump work.
To understand how they work look at the image above which shows the water pump internal components. Firstly, the water flows into the pump at low pressure through the inlet pipe at the middle left of the diagram. Water then passes into the impeller chamber, these spin at very high speed as they are driven by the motor, bottom right. Impellers pressurise the water, which is then forced up into the top chamber, top middle, and is stored there at high pressure until required. When the tap/shower is turned on the water leaves the pump through the outlet, top left, at high pressure and the motor starts to keep a constant supply of water supply. The pump will keep running until the tap/shower is turned off and the pressure in the pump is stabilised.
