Modern homes often need more mains pressure water for a variety of reasons. When more flats are squeezed into a building, there are additional taps and bathrooms to supply. When small houses are extended or en suite facilities added, the same applies. The vogue for under-powered combi boilers is another reason, as are luxuries such as power showers, corner baths and hot tubs. OFWAT requires water companies to supply a minimum of 0.7 bar of pressure when 2 bar is more realistic and extended homes need more. Stuart Turner MainsBoost are a popular solution, with a range of pumps and additional mains-pressure storage cylinders. Stuart Turner MainsBoost systems are also a great solution when gravity-fed water tanks need removing from an attic. Stuart Turner MainsBoost vessels range from 100ltrs to 1000ltrs, and 1000-2000 litres are available in a slightly different design. This is their overall size so actual water capacity is less (about 55ltrs in a 100ltr vessel but proportionally more in larger sizes). They are sold as single units or can be fitted in arrays of two or three tanks. The flow rate from each tank is 80ltrs/min. Alternatives include the smaller Flomate and the slimline iBoost ranges. MainsBoost vessels are also available in a horizontal configuration. Properties still need decent mains pressure (over 2 bar) to benefit from a storage tank. Low pressure can be overcome using a MainsBoost plus charger pump. These take the pressure up to 3.5 bar (4.5 bar is achievable). Pumps are usually wall-mounted and can be at a distance from the storage vessel. Buy MainsBoost Stuart Turner systems in confidence from Heating and Plumbing World. Each unit is dispatched with a full line-in kit. We also offer an extensive range of insulation jackets, service kits, pressure and flow test kits, pump control modules, float switches, flanges and mounting pads.
