What to look out for when purchasing waterworks
There is a wide selection of different water pumps. Therefore, you should inform yourself all the more precisely before buying domestic waterworks, and think carefully about which functions you need and which projects you have planned with the devices. There are a few key factors to consider.
Suction height, output and flow rate
The local conditions, the individual requirements and the required delivery height are decisive for the intake height. For example, if you have a cistern in the garden, the water level will vary depending on the time of year, being higher when there is a lot of rainfall and lower in dry periods. The suction height is therefore influenced by the size of the cistern and the height of the water level inside. If the water level is low, your pump will need more power to pump the water out of the tank. However, you should also pay attention to the flow rate, i.e. how many litres of water the domestic waterworks can pump per hour. If you use the plant or the automatic domestic waterworks, for example, for garden watering, and you have a lot of flowers, shrubs and vegetable beds to water, you need more output than in a small, less planted garden. Depending on the model, our domestic waterworks and automatic domestic waterworks deliver between 3,300 and 5,000 litres per hour. With this selection, you can find the right domestic waterworks for every requirement!
Water reservoir or space-saving pump
Depending on whether you opt for domestic waterworks or automatic domestic waterworks, both types of pumps have their advantages. The domestic waterworks store up to 8 litres of water in the pressure vessel, so that there is a constant pressure in the boiler. The stored water is sufficient for flushing the toilet, for example, after which water is automatically pumped back into the boiler. In comparison, however, automatic domestic waterworks are more space-saving, since the devices do not require a pressure vessel. If the pressure in the appliance drops – for example, because the washing machine is switched on, the toilet is flushed or the garden hose is used, the automatic domestic waterworks will switch on automatically through the pressure switch and only convey as much water as you are currently consuming. If no more water is requested, the pump switches off. This is why automatic domestic waterworks are also known as automatic home and garden pumps.
Quality and service life
Even in frost and heat in summer, the devices must constantly deliver full power. Protection mechanisms such as overload protection, frost and thermal protection as well as protection against dry running should be available. In addition, the pump housing should be made of a robust, high-quality material. If you use your automatic home and garden pump, or your domestic waterworks, for garden watering and do not need the device in winter, a water drain screw is useful. To prevent damage to the pump due to the expansion of the water when freezing, you can simply drain the water from the pump to protect against frost.
