How Does a Pressure Pump Work?

A pressure pump pushes water at a faster rate and at a higher pressure than the existing pressure, and switches off automatically when no water is used. 

All Pascali’s pumps and motors have stainless steel motor shafts, 100% copper windings, brass impellers and cast-iron or stainless-steel pump bodies to provide many years of hassle-free service.

When is a Pressure Pump Needed?

There can be many possible causes of low water pressure in your home, and you need to eliminate these before investing in a pressure pump system.

If there was a sudden change in your water pressure, there are some checks you can do to determine what the cause of your problem is.

Different Types of Pascali Pumps.

Like many things in life, a one-size-fits-all-approach doesn’t suit everyone. Your household water pressure and consumption is unique and that is why you need the right tool for the job.

Luckily Pascali’s range of pressure pumps is extensive enough to provide the perfect fit in nearly every situation.

How to Select the Best Pressure Pump for my Requirements.

There are many choices available when you start looking at pressure pumps, but it is important to identify your specific need before committing to one. Here are some tips to keep in mind when selecting the right pump for your requirements.

The first step in selecting the correct pressure pump is to know the performance requirements the pump needs to meet.

Difference Between Pressure and Flow.

It can be extremely frustrating having to deal with inadequate water flow and pressure, but there is something you can do to improve the situation.


Because a pressure pump combines electricity and water, the utmost care should be taken to ensure that the installation is done safely.

If you have any doubts whatsoever, please consult a professional installer, especially if your setup is more complicated, or if you live in an estate with shared services and maintenance on outside fixtures.

Installing a Pressure Pump & Rainwater Harvesting System

Harvesting rainwater to irrigate your garden is probably one of the most cost-effective and sustainable decisions you can make. In times of water restrictions, this is also a smart counter measure to take.

Rainwater is free and if you don’t use this resource, it simply flows away in the stormwater system and disappears. For every 100 square metres of roof surface area, you can potentially harvest 100 litres of water if it rains just 1 millimeter!

So, a downpour of 10mm on your roof could yield 1 000 litres of water. 

Maintenance Tips for your Pressure Pump.

Any machinery with moving parts will require periodic maintenance and your pressure pump is no different. Pascali pumps are designed and manufactured to last many years but even the greatest machines in the world won’t survive neglect and abuse.

Troubleshooting a Pressure Pump After Installation.

The installation went well, you have finished tidying up and putting away all your tools, now it is time for a well-deserved shower with your new pressure pump.

But something is wrong, and you are not getting the results you were hoping for. Here are some checks you can easily perform to troubleshoot many possible causes.
