We have mentioned that knowing the mains pressure and flow rate is key to making sure mains fed systems both operate and perform to expectations and with poor flow rates MainsBoost and TwinBoost patented systems can be the answer, but what if the pressure is poor or fluctuates. Traditional cold water storage tanks and pump sets are commonly used, and will overcome the problem, but they are generally noisy, expensive and ongoing maintenance costs can be high.
TWS have developed the only WRAS approved direct on mains pump, used in conjunction with an accumulator or accumulators to increase both pressure and flow rates on poor supplies. The small trickle pump provides up to 3.5 bar pressure at 12 litres a minute complying with water board regulations. The pump along with a by-pass feeds the accumulator to increase the pressure to 3.5 bar, simply and extremely effective quiet in operation and with lower energy consumption than large pump sets. The pump is available with an accumulator known as MainsBoost Plus or supplied as a separate cased unit to be installed with multiple vessels.
