Inadequate flow rates and water
pressure are common shortcomings for many properties, often
resulting in underperforming showers and water using appliances.
Stuart Turner addressed this issue for larger domestic and light
commercial applications with the inclusion of the iBoost F200 unit within the Aquaboost
range. This fully integrated system is highly effective, combining
a 200 litre cold water break tank and a high performance,
multistage pump to overcome restricted water flow and insufficient
pressure respectively. Stuart Turner have now officially launched
two additional iBoost solutions: iBoost V200 and iBoost +200.
The iBoost V200 features the same
capabilities as the iBoost F200 unit, generating
pressures of up to 4.5 bar and flow rates of up to 100 litres per
minute. The distinguishing feature of the V200 is the advanced
variable speed pump control system which enables the unit to supply
water at a constant programmable water pressure as the water
demands on the system fluctuate.
The user is able to set the system
at the desired pressure with ease and precision. Adjusting pump
speed to meet actual water demand has the added benefit of reduced
noise as well as providing a 'soft start' and maintaining stable
water pressure when additional outlets are opened. The lifespan and
efficiency of the pump is optimised due to the variable speed pumps
operating at a rate below their maximum. Ultimately, wear and power
consumption is reduced resulting in a more environmentally friendly
Aesthetically speaking, with a high
gloss white front panel, an iBoost unit will not look out of place
amongst other appliances in a kitchen, utility room or garage. This
reliable and compact system will sit neatly within any standard
600mm kitchen larder cupboard and does not require the large
ventilation clearance gaps associated with some systems.
Both the F200 and V200 are very
user friendly, with control panel and status indicators, simple
installation and set-up and dry run protection.
The iBoost +200 water storage tank
featuring a high flow fill valve effectively doubles the capacity
of an iBoost F200 or V200 unit from 200 litres
to 400 litres. In essence, this ensures all water appliances within
the property can experience adequate water pressure with the
reduced risk of the cold water tank emptying during peak use.
Installation is simple; the kit supplied will allow you to connect
the tank to the main iBoost unit through the tank sides.
Ultimately, larger domestic and light commercial applications with
multiple bathrooms and water appliances would greatly benefit from
the +200 unit.
