When it comes to boosting your domestic or industrial water pressure, there are two types of water booster pumps available in the market: The traditional booster pump and the VFD water booster pump. Be sure to do your research about the differences between these two different technologies and then make a choice based on the cost, performance, and reliability. That being said, let’s make a fair comparison.
Low water pressure is common in high-rise facilities since they are tall and impose more water pressure issues. This is why there is an increase in the installation of water pressure booster systems to eliminate low water pressure in such buildings. Often known as on-off controlled pumps, these pumps require a large pump shaft and are likely to cause secondary pollution of water.
They incorporate some type of pressure switch, bladder tank, and flow switch. Because traditional water pressure boosters are composed of a water tower, high water tank, or pressure tank pressurization equipment, they have a high equipment investment cost.
Also known as pump variable frequency controllers, VFD pumps, in recent years, have been widely used in constant pressure water supply systems, firefighting apparatuses, water treatment plants, and more areas. Compared to traditional water pumps, they are more reliable when you want to control the pressure rate at which the pump distributes the water.
By using the VFD water booster pump, you can quickly create a constant-pressure water system with obvious energy-saving effects. Here are the benefits of using VFD pumps.
