Pumping station is an engineering design that includes all the necessary pumping equipment (pump, hydraulic accumulator, automation, pressure gauge, metal-braided hose, check valve), designed to minimize all problems associated with pumping fluid.

  • The device and principle of operation of a household pumping station

The difference between a pumping station and conventional pumps:

  • the process of water supply is automated;

  • the pumping station increases the pressure in the hydraulic system, which is very important if you need to provide water, for example, to both the house and the household at the same time;

  • the pumping station creates a supply of water in the tank, which can be used even in the event of a power outage.

The use of pumping stations is equally effective when both open reservoirs and wells are used as a source of water supply. The pumping station, being a fairly versatile pumping equipment, has found application in a variety of fields.

Domestic and industrial pumping stations

Pumping stations can be divided into two large classes: domestic and industrial.

Industrial pumping stations are characterized by high power, increased productivity and durability. They are used for water supply and heat supply of various buildings, large agricultural facilities, fire extinguishing installations and other similar facilities.

Household pumping stations are used for water supply of private houses, for example, summer cottages or cottages, can be used for watering vegetable gardens, greenhouses and gardens, water supply for farms.

There are also domestic sewage pumping stations that are designed to collect and divert wastewater to local treatment facilities.

The device and principle of operation of a household pumping station

The pumping station consists of the following components:

  • Pump (in most cases with built-in injector)

  • Hydraulic accumulator

  • Pressure switch

  • pressure gauge

Starting work, the pump pumps water into the water supply system and into the accumulator. After the pressure in the accumulator reaches 2.8 atmospheres, the pressure switch will turn off the pump. While the tap is not open, the pump is in standby mode, and the water supply system is under a constant pressure of approximately 2.8 atm.

When the tap is opened, water comes from the accumulator, in which it is under excess (standard — 2.8 atm) pressure. If the pressure drops below the threshold level (about 1.5 atm), then the pressure switch automatically turns on the pump, which provides the necessary water flow with a given pressure.

When the tap is closed, the pump works to fill the accumulator with water and the moment when the pressure in the system reaches a predetermined upper threshold value. After that, the relay turns off the pump, and the pumping station is in standby mode until the next tap is opened.

Pumping station easy to use: after installing it, you do not have to turn something on or off: just open the tap and the water will flow. It saves energy, since the pump does not work constantly, but only at those moments when pressure drops in the accumulator.
