Term Main definition

Pressure is the ratio of a force over a given area, which the force is applied to. When dealing with water pumps it is usually measured in psi or kPa.

When dealing with water pumps the term psi relates to pounds of water pressure per square inch. The maximum pressure the pump operates at represents the force of water or fluid received at your outlet or discharge point. 

In relation to a domestic or home pressure system with town water, the pressure is between 30 to 80 psi. Ideally the pressure will be higher ( above 40 psi) resulting in a good shower.

Kilopascal ( kPa ) is a unit of pressure measurement used as an alternative to psi. When converting PSI to kPa, 1 PSI = 6.895 kPa.

When purchasing a pump, our pump technicians will size your required pump according to your both your flow requirements and pressure needed at the discharge point.
