Pressure Pumps are a vital part of any irrigation, water, or circulation system, but there are a number of factors to take into consideration before deciding which pump is best for your application. The first being: the use of the pump! Whether you plan to install a pressure pump as a means to water your garden directly from a tank, as the basis of an irrigation system, or to provide water to your bathrooms and laundry: alternate flow, pressure, and type of pump may be required for the job. As a general rule, the higher the flow and pressure required from your unit, the larger and more expensive it will be.
A Sump or Drainage Pump is a small, compact pump installed in the lowest part of a basement or crawlspace of a property. The primary job of a Sump or Drainage Pump is to help keep the area under a structure or building dry, prevent flooding, and assist in the removal of accumulated water. A Sump Pump is usually installed in a specially constructed pit, which accumulates water through drains or by natural water migration.
Smart Water Shop offers a range of quality Sump & Drainage Pumps, including those made by Davey, Bianco, Grundfos, and Karcher.
Suction Hoses are ideal for use in medium to high-duty suction and delivery of fresh water, salt water, light chemicals, and assorted liquids. The most common application for suction hoses is evident in agricultural and industrial constructions and installations, as they are particularly resistant to UV damage, changing temperatures, and crushing/abrasion.
Smart Water Shop proudly offer Suction Hoses in a range of lengths and kits.
In most applications of rainwater tanks, the storage tank is utilised to provide a steady supply of water to a household or irrigation system, which is ideal during months when ample rainfall is available. However, an issue may arise when water levels are depleted within the tank during dry seasons. Tanks to Mains Switches are automatic switching controllers which swap between water sources (tank storage and mains water access) depending on the volume of water available within the tank system. These Tanks to Mains Switches will automatically switch to the mains water source when stored water is lacking, then back to utilising stored rainwater when the tank begins to fill again.
Smart Water Shop offers a variety of quality Tank to Mains Switches, including those manufactured by Davey, Bianco, and Grundfos.
Pump Covers are specialised housing units designed specifically to fit exposed pressure pumps. Although many Pressure Pumps are designed to function in open, external places without additional protection; they will still be exposed and vulnerable to harmful UV rays, rain and hail, and the temperamental Australian weather throughout the year. To ensure a long service life and good working condition of your unit, it is best to provide it with the most protection possible – which can be achieved by housing your pump within a Pump Cover. Not only do Pump Covers assist in protecting Pressure Pumps from eventual corrosion, but they also improve noise reduction and aesthetics.
Smart Water Shop offers a range of quality Pump Covers for any variety of Pressure Pump, including those made by Melro, Polyslab, and Kingspan steel water tanks.
To ensure your Pressure Pump unit and the system it is installed in is working at maximum efficiency; various Pressure Pump Accessories may be applied. Pressure Pump Accessories available at Smart Water Shop include: pressure tanks, pressure controllers, and pressure gauges.
The main purpose of a pressure tank is to prevent a pump ‘cycling’, which is the behaviour of a pump turning itself on and off constantly when small amounts of water are required for a project. Instead, a Pressure Tank is able to feed small amounts of water where necessary to a system without having to activate a pump.
Controllers are installed to remove the need for manual operation of a pressure pump or water system. These controllers also generally feature loss of prime protection, which prevents the pump from running and getting damaged when water is unavailable.
Pressure Gauges are installed within a system to allow the operator to monitor and measure the internal pressure or vacuum of a system/vessel. These Gauges are required for the set-up and tuning of fluid power machines, and are indispensable in troubleshooting issues.
Usually installed as part of a bushfire protection system or on properties that are susceptible to fire attack, Firefighter Pumps are the ideal Pressure Pumps for places where power may not be accessible. These pumps have the ability to draw water from a shallow or deep well when power is not available, and can be easily transported for ease of use. Firefight Pump Applications include firefighting, water transfer (high head general or tanker to tanker), irrigation applications, boom spraying, and sheep jetting.
Smart Water Shop offers a range of quality Firefighter Pumps and Fittings, including Davey & Bianco pumps, and various hose fittings and nozzles.
Pumps with Variable Speed Drive
One of the biggest advances within the Pump and Irrigation industry in the past 25 years has been the introduction of Pumps with Variable Speed Drives. With the increased awareness of energy-efficiency within the community, Pressure Pumps have been designed with VSD (Variable Speed Drive) to ensure that maximum efficiency is achieved while utilising the least amount of motor power available. The VSD Controller is designed so that it keeps the outlet pressure of the pump constant, regardless of the flow required out of the pump. Another benefit of using a Variable Speed Pump is that it provides you with a constant water pressure supply by preventing pressure and flow spikes that occur within most conventional house and irrigation pumps.
Smart Water Shop offers a range of Pumps with Variable Speed Drives, including those developed by DAB.
