GWS FLE-PWB8V 8L Pressure Wave Series
It is recommended to use a pressure tank especially when a pump is connected to a toilet cistern. After a toilet is flushed it fills slowly and can cause a pump to cycle (switch on and off) until the cistern is full. Installation of a pressure tank will assist in eliminating this cycling.
Pressure Tanks are recommended to be installed in-line with pumps as they are:
- An energy saving device
- Eliminates the pump starting each time a tap is turned on
- Extends the life of your pump
- Reduces noise
- Protects against heat expansion
- Stops water wastage from hot water heaters
- Stores energy
This means that when a tap is turned on, the water in the pressure tank is used first prior to the pump being turned on. Once this (Draw Off) water is used, the pump will start. When the tap is turned off, the pump will continue to run to fill the pressure cell tank before the pump turns off.
