- normal pressure in the water
- independent water source
- circulation pump
One of the pressing problems of the owners of country houses or apartments onthe upper floors, is the pressure in the water system.Lack of pressure leads to that the tap pouring a thin stream of water, which not only creates particular problems when water is used, but also irritates the occupants.
What is the cause of the weak water pressure?A thin stream means that the water supply system does not have enough pressure.Therefore, the main task is to normalize the water pressure.
normal pressure in the water
norms water pressure
pressure in the water is measured in special units - atmospheres or bars.These units have almost the same value, so they are quite interchangeable in the calculations.
According to GOST, the normal pressure in the water has a value of 4-6 atmospheres.
Fewer atmospheres can not provide comfortable use of water, and more - will lead to failure
selected as the standard value of atmospheres in the water should be taken into account:
- Simultaneous use of multiple appliances in need of a certain constant pressure water washing machine, dishwasher.If the pressure in the water does not allow to include two units at a time, and regular supply of water during operation, for example, a washing machine will be completely unsatisfactory.
- Simultaneous incorporation of water in the kitchen and other locations in the apartments without losing the existing pressure.
- Certain appliances - such as a jacuzzi, require relatively high pressure in the water.Therefore, before purchasing a bathtub with additional functionality necessary to consult with a specialist about the possibility of installing and using the desired object.
If there is a jacuzzi, require more powerful head
insufficient water pressure in the pipes, sooner or later it makes the owners to address the issue of increasing pressure in the water closely.In practice, this is not as difficult as it seems.
There are several ways to increase the pressure in the water.
plan water supply with accumulator
independent water source
owners of country houses have the opportunity to organize their own independent source of water in the area.Equip it with modern tools in the form of a submersible pump, accumulator and system delivering water from the well in the house all the remote corners.However, the pressure is largely dependent on the size of the aquifer, as well as the power of the equipment.
Cases when at non-uniform use of the level of water is reduced and water intake in the required amount becomes impossible.Hardware independent source of water associated with the resolution of the following tasks: delivering water to the house, as well as its distribution in the house.The main problem is the preservation of a constant pressure at any point in the building, whether it is a kitchen, toilet or shower.This problem is easily solved by using a pressure accumulator in the house.Thus, self well requires two pumps: submersible - for delivering water to the surface and the pump distributes fluid.
If it is impossible to organize their own water source in the area can be arranged in the house of a special unit, which regulates normal water pressure throughout the day.To install it need a capacious water tank, as well as equipment that is sensitive to lack of water pressure in the water system.At night, when the pressure is stabilized, the tank is filled with water.During the day, when there is insufficient pressure in the water pipe, the system is activated and complement the pressure in the pipe by the water stored up in advance.This method requires a separate room for the location of the accumulator and other equipment.
circulation pump in the water
No less popular method, which requires the installation of a circular pump.This unit helps to increase the flow of water due to "exhaustion" additional amount of fluid from the water system.However, when variable pressure performance of such equipment does not exceed 20-30%.Therefore, this method is justified if there is a constant pressure, which requires just a little zoom.
Himself homeowners may not always be clear how to increase the pressure in the water.Therefore it is recommended to hire the services of experts to obtain an objective picture of water supply and select the best method for getting rid of problems related to lack of water pressure in the pipes.The consultant can describe the overall picture of the water supply to the house and offer several options to optimize water supply using modern equipment.
