Are you suffering from low mains water pressure at home? The Stuart Tuner Flomate range can help boost the incoming mains supply and provide you with a flow rate of 12 litres/minute.
The Flomate range is a relatively new range to our website, so below we have explored some common FAQ’s about the water boosting pumps.
Does the Flomate pump comply with water authority standards?
Yes, The Flomate range of pumps are fully WRAS approved and compliant with UK water regulations.
Does the Flomate pump need a minimum flow rate before the pump will start?
Yes. The pump activates when an unassisted flow of at least 0.6 litre per minute exists.
How much extra pressure and flow can I expect if i install a Flomate?
The Flomate Pump (46574) will deliver up to a maximum of 12 litres per minute (in accordance with current UK water regulations) and will provide a minimum of 1.5 bar on top of the existing incoming mains water pressure.
If the property is larger, with a greater demand you may wish to opt for a Flomate Mains Boost Extra pump. These systems will boost incoming water pressure to 3 bar and flow up to 30 litres/min for up to 40 minutes at a time (depending on model selected – see product specifications for guidance).
Can the Flomate be used with an unvented cylinder system?
Flomate extra models are suitable for use with unvented cylinders and can provide a compact and effective solution if the mains water supply to the cylinder is inadequate.
Most manufactures of unvented cylinders recommend a minimum water supply input of 1.5 bar and 20 litres per min to give an adequate supply when more than one outlet is used. In such circumstances and to meet these specific requirements, the Flomate extra 200 & 300 units would be most suitable.
