These Aquatec booster pumps provide "town pressure" for remote home water supplies where 12 or 24 VDC power is available. They have a longer life and greater flow rate than other diaphragm booster pumps and they use less than half the energy consumed by an AC jet pump. The 120 VAC version can be used on remote power systems with inverters.
Aquatec's 550 pressure pumps deliver up to 4.5 gpm flow rates at pressures up to 60 psi. These pumps operate with minimal pulsations and noise and are designed for intermittent duty, though most models can be run continuously for hours at a time. They are commonly used to pressurize water from an atmospheric tank, to deliver purified water to a specific point of use, or simply to increase pressure when required. The built-in pressure switch is set for 60 psi off and 40 psi on. The pumps come with straight threaded male half-inch fittings that snap into the quick disconnect ports. The optional strainer is highly recommended to keep debris out of the pump and thereby prolong diaphragm life.
