Low water pressure due to shared mains pipe
The customer contacted Pump Express with a situation concerning a shared mains pipe that supplied 6 other properties and they were on the very end of that shared mains pipe.
The customers aim was that they would be able to have a shower at any time of day and it not being reduced to literally a drip from the shower head whilst they were showering.
The property was being heated via a Combi boiler that was constantly tripping out due to poor supply.
We measured the water flow from the mains at multiple times of the day to find the worst possible flow rate. It was below 6 l/min and the nearest main water with a size of pipe to increase the mains flow to the properties was found many hundreds of metres away.
The customer was offered a 270 litre Powertank that would increase their mains pressure and flow to a more consistent pressure of 3 bar and a flow rate of 40 litres a minute.
The unit was supplied and the customer now enjoys a shower at their leisure and consistent heating, for a fraction of the cost of replacing the mains pipe underground coming to the property.
