The best water pressure booster pumps are those that are quiet, work with gravity-fed hot water systems, and are easily installed to fit either existing or new pipes. These pumps work to elevate water pressure to a comfortably high flow rate. They deliver the water pressure you need in your home—particularly at the tap, at shower heads, and in the laundry room. Most pumps have a flow switch that is built in to activate the pump when someone in the home turns on a tap. The pumps boost the hot water flow into the tap to minimize that annoying “cold shower effect” we all know and love. There’s much less waiting time for hot water.  Here are five of the best water pressure booster pumps on the market today.
This versatile pump is made to not only pressure the water in your storage tank but to also deliver purified water to a given point of use…or to simply increase the water pressure when the need arises. For this reason, this pump finds use in misting systems, carbonation systems, medical lab ware, multi-fixture RV water installations, and even water treatment.
Before deciding on the right pump for you, you should first figure out for what you are going to need it. Does your basement get flooded from time to time? Do you have a pool or a pond that needs to be bailed out regularly? Water pumps are usually somewhat specialized, so you don’t want to get something that is made for adding pressure to your camper’s sink if you want to clear water out of your aquarium. So, to help ensure that you don’t make the wrong choice, here are the most critical factors that should go into your decision-making process with water recirculating pumps.
Low water pressure is one of the problems that consistently bedevils residences and businesses alike. Water pressure, not to be confused with water flow at the tap, is simply the force that propels water through the piping system to reach fixtures in the building unit. People desire high water pressure for many different reasons and there are as many different ways to try to achieve it. One way is using a water pressure booster pump.

A. No. The TQ and TQI Series pumps must be primed before operation. The TQ pumps have a built-in check valve, that will allow the pump to then pump water from depths of 25 feet or less without the worry of priming the pump each time as long as a foot valve is installed at the suction inlet. However, the pump must always be checked for prime if not used for a prolonged period of time. It is imperative to fill the pump with water before operation as dry running causes irreparable damage to the mechanical seal.

I have been using this pump on on my sprinkler system for about six months now, and I don't have any complaints. The city that I live in uses culinary water for watering lawns and the pressure has slowly gone down over the years. I believe the pressure was at about 30 psi from the city, which wont push more than about 4 heads, and once I installed the pump it jumped up to about 60 psi. Before installing this pump, I had dry spots all over the lawn because I was not getting very good coverage, due to low water pressure. Once I installed this pump, my lawn was green once again, and I had great coverage. My neighbor actually came over and asked what I did because he is experiencing the same problem. I did install a pump relay on the sprinkler controller for safety reasons, but I do think it is designed to turn on when it senses flow through the pump. The pump is installed outside with the sprinkler valves under a box that I built. It worked great for me because I already had 1" line feeding the system, and 1" line feeding the zones. The pump is very quite when it is on. I would recommended this product to anyone that is experiencing the same problem.

The Water Worker Pressure Booster is a whole house pressure boosting system. It will help increase water pressure in single and multi-family dwellings. Each system includes a reliable, heavy duty pump, a digital pressure control and a pre-pressurized water storage tank. The pump, digital control and tank are engineered specifically to boost water pressure by up to 40 psi, providing added comfort and improved appliance performance.
A plumbing system will typically lose eight psi of water pressure in a two-story house, getting the water from the basement up to the second floor bathroom. With no water flowing, the static pressure at the street main may be 60 psi, but the static pressure at the second floor basin might be 51 psi. Houses that are above the street or have third story plumbing fixtures, have a pressure disadvantage.

Most pressure side cleaners require a pool booster pump to work. These dedicated pool pumps drive the cleaner, and upgrading or replacing an old one is one of the easiest equipment upgrades one can make. Old boosters will often grow louder over time, and become less energy efficient in the process. If you’re looking to replace yours, there are four common options; one from Polaris, one from Kreepy Krauly, one from Pentair, and one from Hayward.
Like its bigger brother, this unit is designed to be as smart and effective as possible. It starts and stops automatically, adjusts itself to fit your needs, and shuts off if there is any problem. The pump primes itself, but if there is no water flowing or the motor is going to overheat, an alarm sounds, and it turns off. Not only that, but the control panel is intuitive and easy to use and won’t cause any problems. Finally, it is built with heavy duty materials and comes with a stellar two-year limited warranty.

I was very skeptical about this product. But after talking directly to the manufacture technical support I was immediately sold and made the purchase. Went from 43 PSI to 64 PSI (with a regulator) on city water and for the first time in years I can enjoy a shower. The main purpose for the purchase however was for the irrigation system. All zones are now super stiff and push the water out very far (beyond my expectations). No more heads flooding out. Did I mention super quiet???? Easy to install! Best purchase I have made in a very long time! And it is an American company out of Iowa.

Pressure problems create issues in the laundry room and particularly in bathrooms. What is water pressure anyway? It is the force of water pushing from the water main into the pipes of your home. The rate of flow depends on several factors, including the size of piping you have (1 inch, ½ inch or other diameter), whether your water is well-supplied or city-supplied, and how many water connections you have to one main water junction in the home. Modern homes usually have 1 inch pipe, but many older homes have 0.5 inch pipe.  When homes have multiple taps or appliances all connected to the same pipe, there may not be enough water (or water pressure) coming into the home.
Most are centrifugal pumps, relying upon one or more impellers to draw the pumped fluid into the intake of the pump, and to boost its pressure as the fluid passes through the impeller and the volute or diffuser casing. Some are single-stage, meaning that they have a single impeller. These are generally used in applications where the amount of additional pressure (head) that is required is not significant. There are also multi-stage configurations involving more than one impeller, which are used to deliver higher heads such as would be required to move water up to substantially higher elevations or through much longer pipelines.

However, before I ordered this pump from Amazon, I called Simer technical support. I wanted to get a feel for what their customer service would be like, IF I had a problem. The gentleman I spoke with was very nice and helpful. I told him I was considering purchasing their Simer 3075SS 3/4 HP Booster pump. I said I'd read reviews on Amazon and had a few questions:
Usually, water pump booster motors are measured in horsepower. While there are plenty of other factors that go into the durability and reliability of the machine, this metric can still help you find the right one for your needs. Considering that this pump will be working on a near constant basis, you have to make sure that you get one that can handle that level of activity. Thus, picking a motor with a higher horsepower or wattage can be a good choice as it will usually be stronger than one that is smaller.
With a booster pump, however, water is allowed to flow at high speed, which in turn can help you wrap up multiple activities in quick time. A water pressure booster pump can be operated either manually where you need to simply turn on a switch, or through an on-demand system that is automatically activated just when there is a necessity for more water. So, bring home a water pressure booster pump today and save time in getting sufficient water with a wink of an eye.
Saying that, booster pump installation is much simpler and quicker than most would think. All of the fittings you need for installation are included in the pump kit. Included are: washers, a filter washer, a straight connector, an isolation valve connector and some adapters to cope with either 15mm or 22mm pipe connections. Full instructions are also included, so you’re ready to start installing as soon as you get the kit.
When it comes to water pressure, you actually can have too much of a good thing. Pressure over 80 psi can cause you to waste water and the energy required to heat it. It can also damage water softeners, water heaters, faucets, appliances and seals. If your pressure test shows more than 80 psi, make sure you have a working pressure-reducing valve and keep it set between 50 and 60 psi.
My water psi is 55# measured by me and the municipality. The city changed the distribution system approximately one year ago and the water pressure has slowly dropped from over 100# to 55# as new homes were added in my area. The flow appears to be fine and the city says that they are going to do nothing to increase the pressure anytime soon. My neighbors have the same water pressure. My home was built with the proper plumbing (3/4" water in and reduced to 1/2" for outlets) so that if more than one facuet was being used, one would not notice a flow or pressure reduction. The house was setup with 80# pressure maximum originally and everything worked fine. Now with the pressure drop, if a commode is flushed while you are taking a shower you notice a reduction in the water flow. At one time, three showers could be operated at once and there was no sign of a reduction problem. Now, showers have to be planned as well as the use of the washer and dishwasher. This has really become an annoyance for my family knowing how the house plumbing used to work.
The other thing that we like about this unit is that it comes with a control panel in case something goes wrong. Sometimes the pump may shut off for various reasons, but you can activate it or reset it as needed without having to call a plumber to check it out. Finally, it has a pressure regulator and reader so that you can always be sure that you’re getting the best results.

Booster pumps can be found in both residential and commercial properties, in large homes and small homes, in corner stores and big factories, in farms and in car washes. Some use boosters simply for comfort, while others rely on them to run a business or even for drinking water. Some of the top manufacturers of booster pumps are Goulds, Sta-Rite, Berkeley and Grundfos. Discussed below are some of the most common applications in which booster pumps play a vital role.
don’t have to worry about setting your pressure level or anything. Also, it adjusts according to your needs so you can run water without any problems. Second, it will shut off if there is any problem. This includes no water in the line, a clog, or anything else that could damage its robust one-horsepower motor. It even has an alarm that goes off in such an event so that you know what’s happening. 
Now you need to know the required flow as well.  Again, it’s nice if you have a set of irrigation plans for the system that tell you.  But if you don’t then you will need to reverse engineer the system to determine the flow.  Remember the flow will be higher after the pressure is boosted, so when you reverse engineer it use flow values based on the higher new pressure.  This is a bit tricky.  The best way is to calculate the increase is to use flow data for your sprinklers that you will find on the manufacturer’s website.   So you look up your sprinkler model and discover that the flow for the sprinkler is 2.7 GPM at 35 PSI.  Then you look up what the flow for that same sprinkler is at 50 PSI is 3.2 GPM.   Now determine the percent increase in flow.  3.2 / 2.7 = 1.19.   We have discovered the flow will increase by 119%.  Lets say the current flow is 20 GPM.  The flow for the booster pump will need to be 119% of that.  So 20 GPM x 1.19 = 24 GPM (23.8 rounded up to 24.)  So the booster pump needs to have a flow of 24 GPM.

Saying that, booster pump installation is much simpler and quicker than most would think. All of the fittings you need for installation are included in the pump kit. Included are: washers, a filter washer, a straight connector, an isolation valve connector and some adapters to cope with either 15mm or 22mm pipe connections.

The BurCam 506532SS is equipped with an easy to prime stainless steel pump body with a completely enclosed 3/4 HP motor that is fan-cooled for thermal and overload protection. The unit has easy installation and is durable and is equipped with a capacitor to eliminate wear when starting. The BurCam 506532SS is built for dual application, allowing it to be used as a pressure booster or as a shallow well jet pump.
The ¾ Hp model we’ve looked at seems to be one of their most successful, and it’s sized just right for most pools in American suburbia. If you’re living in a neighborhood with faux European domestic architecture, then you’re also in luck, since the motor of this thing is efficient enough to punch above its specifications when it comes to the amount of water filtered every hour.

On new construction and retrofit projects, water pressure booster pumps are used to provide adequate water pressure to upper floors of high rise buildings. The need for a water pressure booster pump can also arise after the installation of a backflow prevention device (BFP), which is currently mandated in many municipalities[where?] to protect the public water supplies from contaminants within a building entering the public water supply. The use of BFPs began after The Clean Water Act was passed. These devices can cause a loss of 12 PSI, and can cause flushometers on upper floors not to work properly. After pipes have been in service for an extended period, scale can build up on the inside surfaces which will cause a pressure drop when the water flows.


We live on a hill with a 30 percent grade, and in seven years this is our third replacement pump. Easy to install, we paid plumbers before, and the pump started without any problems. Except it blew out the circuit breaker; old, I admit. Fixed it, turned on again, ran great. Hours later, the water pipes to the house broke. Old, more than fifty years old. Fixed, turn on again, works great. Thanks to this pump we have water pressure and no worries about weak electric circuitry or problems with water pipes. Very recommended.
​The pump also features a built-in dry run protection, which is great because the pump won’t burn out. Weighing in at around 30 pounds, the pump is lightweight and very simple to operate. The built in pressure tank has a self-priming unit to reduce the number of starts to extend pump life. The pump can be used in an outdoor environment with a weather protection cover.  Unfortunately, these pumps don’t last as long under harsher hard water or acidic water conditions, and replacement parts are in very limited supply or non-existent. If you need a repair, the parts are difficult or impossible to find and you end up having to throw the pump away and buy a new one.
Our photo of a pressure booster pump and tank system at left (and at page top) shows that stainless steel parts were used to enclose the pump parts: this system is designed for outdoor use in a non-freezing climate. You can see the pressure gauge and the gray box housing the pump pressure control switches above the stainless-steel covered pump assembly itself.
