The 500l Cat 5 booster set and break tank is designed to boost pressure in medium sized garden irrigation systems, the pressure booster set will store a buffer of water in the storage tank, provide compliance with the Water Regulations and boost the pressure. It is ideal for lawns that require watering with pop-up sprinklers.
The submersible pump is built into the 500l tank allowing easy installation and also quiet running. The built in tank overflow ensures that the irrigation system is separated from the mains water supply in accordance with the Water Regulations. By holding a 500l buffer of water the irrigation system can operate for a limited period of time with flows that are higher than the water flow from the main tap – ideal for larger lawns sprinklers which are quite thirsty. The pump also provides a pressure of up to 4 bar, again ideal for lawn sprinkler systems.
The submersible pump is designed to automatically operate when it detects a drop in pressure. To protect the pump, in the event of the tank running out of water, the pump will stop running, periodically checking to see if the tank has refilled. The pump is quiet running as the noise from the pump is reduced by the surrounding water in the tank.
Installation of the 500l Cat 5 booster set and break tank set is simple. The tank requires a firm, level site and needs power and water. The unit is designed to be delivered on a pallet direct to the customer.
Category 5 backflow is achieved using an approved Type AB air gap. As part of the specification for type AB air gaps, any overflow water must flow freely through the weirs in the tank. This must be taken into consideration when siting the unit.
Dimensions: 610mm x 1060mm x 1330mm high. Inlet: 3/4″ BSPM Outlet: 1″ BSPF
Max Inlet flow: 1,400 l/h (achievable inlet flow is dependent on available incoming water flow and pressure). Tank capacity will be reduced due to the air gap.
Pump output: 4,200 l/h @ 2 bar; 3,000 l/h @ 3 bar; 1,400 l/h @ 4 bar
For larger irrigation systems we manufacture a 1,250 litre storage tank and booster set.
