The garden pump is a sensible addition to a water tank. Often the pump designed for the garden are non-mains connected pumps.
NON-MAINS Connected Pumps – the garden pump
Some locations in Australia do not have access to mains water supply ie rural or semi rural properties. These properties must use pumps with No-mains changeover valve.
Also domestic homes who simply wish to use the water from the water tank to water their gardens, full their pools or simply washing cars may not wish to have a mains changeover pump.
All non-mains pumps have an automatic shut down when the tank water is not sufficient. This is to protect the motor.
The garden pump usually has a 50 to 70 litre per minute water pressure. This water pressure is sufficient to water a garden in a residential block. This water pressure is also suitable to wash the car, fill the pool and general outdoor usage. Often customers will add a pump cover to the external pump. The benefits of a pump cover is to protect the pump from the hash Australian weather but also to reduce the noise of the pumps motor.
As a final note, please remember the best water tank pump for your property must have sufficient water pressure to ensure that you won’t be disappointed.
