Finding solutions to the problem of low mains water
pressure is even easier with the extended range of Flomate mains
boost pumps from Stuart Turner.
Following on from the successful introduction of the Flomate
Mains Boost Extra 60 litre version pump earlier this year, we have
expanded the product range even further. In addition to the
existing 60 litre capacity model we have introduced 80, 100, 200
and 300 litre options providing water pressure boosting solutions
for all sizes of property.
Flomate mains boost extra pumps provide a consistent flow
of water and increased water pressure to a property, boosting
multiple outlets simultaneously such as taps, baths and
Pumping water directly from the mains supply is now
Many installers are uncertain as to whether a water supplier
will permit the connection of a pump directly to the mains supply
to a property. This belief is based on the fact that historically,
pump products that complied with water regulations for direct mains
connection were simply not available. This situation is no longer
the case. Stuart Turner has designed and engineered their range of
'flomate' mains boost pumps to comply with UK regulations ensuring
the flow of water drawn from the mains is limited to a maximum of
12 litres per minute and is also approved by WRAS for connecting
directly to the incoming mains water supply. This means finding a
solution to the problem of low water pressure has just been made a
whole lot easier!
Flomate - the answer to low mains water pressure
WRAS approved products such as Stuart Turners
patented flomate provide a simple and cost effective solution to
boost low or intermittent mains water pressure without the need for
a cold water break tank, making it ideal for properties where space
The flomate pump uses an extremely reliable flow regulator to
ensure flow does not exceed the 12 litre per minute UK water
regulation limits. If, however the mains water pressure increases
at times of low water demand and exceeds the minimum guaranteed by
the water supplier, flomate's patented bypass feature ensures that
the resulting increase in water flow will bypass the flomate's pump
head and be supplied to the property without being restricted to 12
litres per minute, unlike alternative mains boost systems.
The 60 and 80 litre water vessel versions
will sit neatly within a standard 500mm kitchen base unit and
deliver up to 16 litres per minute at 3.0 bar pressure. Whilst the
100, 200 and 300 litre versions are designed to sit within a
standard 600mm larder style cupboard and provide up to 30 litres
per minute at 3.0 bar pressure, depending on the pressure vessel
variant, to multiple outlets within the property.
By supplementing the water pressure boosting performance of the
flomate pump with the supply from the pressurised water vessel the
patented 'flomate mains boost
extra' offers the householder the ability to
store water at pressure to meet peak demand.
The flomate range comes with a 3
year guarantee, are easy to install, require no on-site
commissioning and provide a fully assembled and tested solution to
low water pressure problems!
