Choosing a Fresh Water Pressure Pump - Solar or Marine

Pressure controlled diaphragm pumps provide fresh water that is as easy to use as a domestic water supply — with the versatility to offer full flow or a trickle.

The pump is controlled by a switch which senses the pressure drop when a tap is opened and activates the pump; it turns off when the system pressure builds to a pre-set limit as the tap is closed. This system allows any type of tap or shower valve to be fitted, from 3/8" (10mm) bore for minimum water use to 1/2" (13mm) bore.

Choosing the pump for your needs is simple — just check your system size and the number of outlets you need to operate simultaneously and select the appropriate pump.

Diaphragm pumps are self-priming, quiet and can run dry for extended periods.
