Our team can help you choose the optimal booster pump for your home and budget and install it in a manner that will serve you well for many years to come.
What Is a Booster Pump?
A booster pump is a device that moves water and is often installed as an intermediary between a water source, such as the municipal water line or well, and endpoints, such as faucets and showers. Typically, a booster pump works in conjunction with a source pump in order to improve water pressure and flow. Multiple booster pumps can be installed in order to achieve the desired water pressure, and there are single-stage pumps that operate at a constant rate and multi-stage pumps, which are also known as variable speed drive or VSD pumps, that can adjust the rate based on the current pressure. One single-speed pump is usually enough for the average residential booster pump installation.
The Benefits of Booster Pump Installation
The main benefit of a booster pump installation is that it allows you to achieve optimal water pressure and flow rate for your home. A booster pump is a relatively inexpensive and long-lasting upgrade to your plumbing system that will improve quality of life but also pay for itself over the life of the equipment due to reduced wear and tear to your plumbing.

Signs You Need a Booster Pump Installed
The main indication that your home needs booster pump installation is low water pressure, which may be a constant issue or one that comes and goes. But it’s important to note that not every home with low water pressure needs a booster pump. That’s why it’s important to have a plumber perform an inspection. We can determine if the source pressure is low, in which case booster pump installation is generally recommended, or whether something else is causing the problem, such as a clogged pipe or a water meter or pressure regulator that’s faulty.
Reasons to Hire a Professional Plumber
There are certainly handymen out there who’ll perform a booster pump installation for you and perhaps save you a little money, but you won’t have the peace of mind that you will get by hiring Christian. Our plumbers are experts who will determine if you actually need a booster pump and provide you with an honest assessment. Installing an unnecessary booster pump can actually do more harm than good. With Christian, you also have the confidence that we’re going to help you choose the perfect booster pump for your needs and then integrate it into your plumbing system in a manner that will stand the test of time.
Many homeowners take a break-fix approach to their plumbing systems, but you can save yourself money over the long term and avoid many issues through an annual inspection and maintenance appointment. This is particularly true when you have plumbing add-ons like a booster pump, and we’ll inspect and service all of those additional plumbing components along with checking your pipes, faucets, appliances, and so forth.
