With so many pumps available on the market, there can be a minefield of infomation available.So where do you start when you need to select a pump for a new or existing rainwater tank installation or a pump replacement or upgrade?


Firstly, you’ll need to think about what you your client is planning to use the pump for:

  • Does the customer want to supply rainwater to their garden only, toilet and laundry only or to the whole of their home?  
  • If it’s for garden use only, do they have a large garden or a small garden? How many outlets would like to be able to run at one time? 
  • If it’s for home water supply, what size is their home - a large multi-storey home or small townhouse or unit? Does it have multiple bathrooms or wet areas?

Secondly, determine the water source:

  • Is the rainwater tank situated above or below ground?  
  • Is the tank set above or below the level of the home or garden they want to supply?  
  • What sort of distance is the tank from the home or garden they want to supply? 

Next you need to determine what additional features or technical requirements your client may want and need:

  • Do they require the pump to be able to run on a generator?  
  • Do they require a pump with the capacity to be able to provide a mains water backup if the rainwater tank runs dry or in the event of a power outage? 
  • Is the pump situated inside or close to the house? If so, is the noise level of the pump important?

All these factors need to be taken into consideration when selecting a pump. If the pump is being used infrequently, a cost-effective pump solution may be all that is needed. If the pump is being run for whole of house supply, then energy efficiency and cost savings may be important, and a pump that is able to adjust its speed to meet varying demand might be just what your customer is after.Grundfos pumps are renowned for their high quality, innovative design and reliability.
