Transfer Pumps

When moving water from point A to point B, a booster pump is necessary to create a sufficient pressure and lift. This can be the case when using several water tanks at the same time in a domestic building where you need to transfer water from one tank to another, for instance from an underground tank to a roof tank.

Transfer pumps will often be installed outside and must be robust and able to handle the sun, rain, wind and dust. 

Transfer pumps are typically used to fill water storage tanks, and as this is a task you most likely just want done as quickly as possible, a fixed speed pump is perfect for the job, while paying for a variable speed motor is an unnecessary expense in a transfer pump.

The pump must also be able to start and stop automatically according to demand in the tank, which is often solved by using a float valve. If the highest tapping point, Hmax is above the start pressure the pump will never start and choosing a pump with an additional external input that can be fitted with a float switch is therefore recommended.
