Where are booster sets used?

Water booster sets are used across the country for many applications. So no matter if its a school, office block, apartment block, hospital or hotel – all of these places rely hugely on pumped water to ensure water gets to where you need it, when you need it.

Water booster pump sets come in all different shapes, sizes and configurations. Because of this, every manufacturer has their own interpretation of how a booster set should be put together and how they should operate.

What can go wrong?

After years of operation, water booster set breakdowns can occur. This can range from any type of fault including leaking mechanical seals or electrical breakdown. Repairing the unit can be either a short or long term solution, depending upon its condition. Eventually the unit will require refurbishment or replacement.
