7 Common Problems with Booster Pumps and How to Fix Them

Booster pumping systems or booster sets are a proven and effective solution for increasing water pressure, particularly in larger buildings.

Booster pumps are commonly used in environments such as apartments, hotels, schools, leisure centres and other buildings where it is essential that all outlets have access to adequate water pressure.

Unfortunately, booster pumps can experience problems; especially when they are not properly maintained. Booster pumps underperformance or complete failure can be extremely disruptive and often results in some or all building occupants having no access to water or experiencing low pressure.

In environments such as apartments, a booster pump failure could mean that residents do not have sufficient pressure to carry out essential daily tasks such as having a shower, flushing the toilet or using their taps.

To prevent this, our latest blog post takes a look at 7 problems with booster pumps and how you can fix them. The most common problems with booster pumps include:

  • Pump won’t start
  • High running noise
  • Leaking from pump
  • Contamination
  • Low water pressure
  • High operating costs
  • Pressure too high

Pump Won’t Start

A booster pump that won’t start means that water will not be available to any outlet fed from the pumps.

There are several reasons why a booster pump doesn’t start including a lack of power, water in the break tank, tripping, sensor failure, problems with the control panel and motor failure.

Firstly if there is a power cut then the pumps won’t run and there will be no water delivered.  When the electricity is reinstated the pumps might need to be reset to work, if in doubt please call our professional engineers for further assistance.

If the ball valve has failed in the break tank and the pumps are fitted with low level protection then the pumps won’t start.  Check the tank has water.

If these have been checked the other potential causes can be difficult to fix the issue without sufficient knowledge and expertise of booster pumps. Therefore, it is recommended to arrange a full inspection from a pump engineer.

High Running Noise

A high running noise from your booster pump is not only a sign of potential problems, but can also be frustrating for building users as they may be woken or otherwise disturbed by the higher operating noise.

There are several reasons why a booster pump can make excessive noise including high demand, incorrect positioning, worn or old components and excessive vibration from the pump or pipework within the building.

Along with regular maintenance, it’s possible to prevent noise from your pump by ensuring it can meet demand and using vibration isolators such as vibration mats, bases, and springs.

To find out more about this problem, take a look at our blog post on best practice for controlling noise in booster pumping systems.

Leaking from Pump

Leaking from your booster pump reduces its effectiveness and can result in more serious problems if not addressed. Leaks can be caused by issues such as broken valves, worn or cracked seals and the water pressure being too high.

To determine the cause of the leak, we recommend carrying out an inspection of the pump and its components. If you are unable to identify the issue, a full service should be arranged with a pump engineer.

If you are responsible for the maintenance of a booster set, take a look at our free booster pump maintenance inspection checklist which covers the key components of the pump that should be inspected regularly.


Contamination is a serious issue in any pumping system, but even more so with a booster set where end users are likely to be using and drinking the water it’s distributing.

Contamination can be caused by inadequate cleaning of the pump or failing to manage the maintenance requirements of the cold water storage tank.

If there is contamination within the pump, it should be switched off immediately and a full inspection should be arranged with an engineer who can test, clean and disinfect the cold water tank.

Low Water Pressure

The primary purpose of booster pumps is to increase the pressure of water, so it’s an immediate cause for concern if low water pressure is experienced.

A drop in pressure could be caused by high demand, the age and suitability of the pump, a faulty sensor, valve failure or a leak.

We recommend carrying out a visual inspection on the unit before arranging an inspection by an engineer who can assess whether a repair is required or whether the pump is no longer up to the job and needs replacing.

To find out more about what causes low water pressure and how you can improve it, take a look at our blog post on how to improve water pressure.

High Operating Costs

If you have noticed an increase in operating costs, it may not be down to increasing energy prices alone. As pumps age, they become less efficient; particularly if they are not being professionally maintained.

With the new features offered by modern pumps, upgrading can offer potentially thousands in cost savings whilst providing a better experience for residents and reducing your carbon footprint.

If your bills are increasing, we recommend arranging a pump energy check. This check gives you an accurate view of current pump performance and can calculate whether any cost savings could be made by upgrading the unit.

Pressure too High

When a pumps pressure is too high, it puts unnecessary strain on the pump and pipework without offering any real benefit to the users of the building.

One of the most common reasons for the pressure being too high is the pressure relief valve (PRV) which controls pressure being set too high or being stuck open.

If your pressure is running too high, we recommend checking the pressure gauge and manually reducing the pressure if required. If the PRV does not close or the pressure will not decrease, organise an inspection from an engineer.

How Much Could a Booster Pump Energy Check Save You?

Booster Pump Set

Booster pumps are an effective method of increasing water pressure and ensuring building users can access water of a suitable pressure, regardless of the number of outlets in use or size of the building.

Booster pumps are often used in larger sized buildings with multiple occupants such as flats, apartment blocks, office buildings, hotels, schools and Government buildings where mains pressure alone isn’t enough to meet demands.

Many booster pumps we find in operation are old units with antiquated controls which become less economical and efficient over time. With environmental impact becoming very important and the cost of electricity always rising, it can pay dividends to understand how economical your pump is and take steps to improve it.

Read our blog post to find out more about the considerable savings that can be unearthed through an energy check, the benefits of a modern booster pump and the importance of keeping your booster set professionally maintained.

Booster Set Energy Check Savings

A pump energy check gives you a clear view of your pumps current performance and the associated cost savings that could be made by upgrading your existing booster pumping system. When carrying out an energy check, the following factors are considered:

  • Pump & head flow
  • Motor power data
  • Operating hours per year
  • Age of pump
  • Pump use
  • Operating needs

From this data, the test can ascertain what energy savings could be made with the installation of a new booster set, including how long the payback time would be.

At Mawdsleys Pumps, we regularly carry out energy checks in line with the ISO 14414 Pump Energy Assessment Standards before making system recommendations to clients, often revealing thousands of pounds worth of energy savings that could be made.

In a recent test we carried out, we uncovered potential savings of over £40,000 over a 10 year period at an NHS facility in Bristol, read the full case study here.

The Benefits of a Modern Booster Set

Modern booster sets are made up of several components designed to enable adequate water pressure to any sized building. As technology has improved, so have the number of benefits a booster set offers, the key advantages are:

  • Variable Speed Drives – Modern booster sets are fitted with variable speed drives, these drives have pressure sensors and flow sensors which keep the pressure constant with varying demand, extending the life of the pump and meaning you only pay for what you use.
  • High Efficiency – As technology has improved, booster pumps have become more and efficient, offering adequate pressure on a normal mains water supply.
  • Environmental Benefits – As a result of improved efficiency and variable speed technology, modern booster sets use less energy, reducing the carbon footprint.
  • Duty, Standby and Assist – Modern booster sets are usually compromised of multiple pumps, meaning that there is a backup should the demand exceed the main pump, plus a standby pump should one fail. These are known as ‘duty’, ‘duty – assist’ and ‘standby’ pumps.
  • Lower Running Costs – Equally, improved efficiency and reduced energy use results in lower overall running costs, building owners can expect a booster pump to pay off its installation cost long before the end of its life.

Keeping Your Booster Set Well Maintained

Due to their critical nature, there is never a good time for a booster pump to fail or start to underperform.

In order to keep your booster set running at maximum efficiency, it is recommended that you have your pump serviced by a professional pump engineer.

As well as keeping the pump running at full strength, regular servicing ensures that any developing faults are rectified, reducing the risk of breakdown.

Additionally, there are maintenance checks such as visual inspections that can be carried out every month to complement annual servicing.

To help keep on top of routine maintenance, we have created a free inspection checklist for responsible persons. Click the button below to download your copy.

Low water pressure in showerhead

How To Improve Water Pressure

Water pressure is an essential part of any building with a water supply, yet it’s often taken for granted until something goes wrong and the pressure drops.

Low water pressure can be caused by a number of factors such as high demand and can affect every water outlet in the premises including toilets, showers, taps, pumps, washing machines, and water tanks.

Experiencing low water pressure is extremely frustrating for building users and in commercial and agricultural environments, can result in huge drops in efficiency due to the extra time taken to output water.

Read our latest blog post to find out more about the causes of low water pressure and how you can improve your water pressure.

What are the Causes of Low Water Pressure?

Water pressure is effectively the force that transports water through your pipes, so lower water pressure means that the water flows at a lower velocity.

There are a number of reasons why your water pressure may have dropped. The most common reasons for low water pressure are:

  • When demand for water is higher, pressure may be impacted
  • Properties that have a shared supply are more likely to experience issues with water pressure
  • In larger buildings such as hotels, offices, or blocks of flats, water outlets at the top of the building tend to get lower pressure
  • In gravity fed systems, your water pressure depends on how high the source of water is above your property
  • Additionally, the distance your property is away from the water source will impact the pressure you get
  • Old or damaged pumping facilities may no longer be able to cope with the demands of the building
  • Pipes restricting the flow of water due to diameter, corrosion, blockages, and leaks can reduce the water pressure

Low water pressure in showerhead

Why Water Pressure Matters

Low water pressure can create several issues in all environments, whether it’s a domestic premises, commercial office or leisure facility.  The most common complaints about low water pressure include:

  • Showers and taps can be reduced to a trickle of water
  • Toilets may not flush properly
  • Results in reduced efficiency in commercial premises
  • Any activities requiring higher pressure such as irrigation or high-pressure cleaning may not be possible
  • Certain modern appliances do not work below specific pressure thresholds
  • Equally, certain pumping equipment requires a specific amount of pressure to work

All of this can contribute to a poor experience for the users of the building and in a commercial building such as a block of flats, gyms, schools or a hotel, is likely to attract complaints.

Steps To Improving Your Water Pressure

If you’ve noticed a drop in your water pressure, here are steps you can take to try and increase it once more:

  • Check that the outlet for your water is not clogged up or blocked in any way
  • Check that the water valves for your property are fully open
  • Check for blockages in your water system
  • Check for any leaks in your water system
  • Ensure that your current pumping system meets your requirements
  • Test your appliances at peak times vs quieter times to see if there is a difference in the water pressure you receive
  • Invest in appliances such as power showers which can enable higher output even when overall pressure is lower

If you own the premises, you can take it upon yourself to check these or contact a professional if you do not have the expertise.

However, if you are a building user or rent a space in the building, it is likely that you will need to contact the landlord of the building to investigate further.

Benefits of a Booster Pumping System

If you are still struggling with water pressure, it is likely that you need to consider taking measures to increase the pressure of water to your system, this can be done very effectively with a booster pump.

Booster pumps are installed to increase the water pressure throughout a building and are an effective means of improvement in any type of building.

They can be installed in most properties whether you rely on a typical water supply or get your water from a private supply (such as a borehole or well).

A booster pump is a long term investment that will serve your property for years if properly maintained, download our free booster pump inspection checklist to find out more.

Booster pumps are available to suit any premises, whether it’s fixed speed or a range of multiple pump variable speed sets to meet demands and offer energy saving benefits.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can changing a shower head improve water pressure?

Yes, in some cases simply changing the shower head can improve the water pressure you get.

Shower heads can also become blocked up with limescale which restricts the amount of water that can be output, so in some cases a simple clean will help improve the water pressure.

Additionally, some showers have water saving heads that intentionally reduce the water pressure to save money.

How to improve water pressure from a well?

If you rely on a well as your water supply, it’s critical that you get adequate pressure from your system given that there is no backup.

A booster pumping system can be used to effectively increase the pressure received from private domestic water sources.

Can I install a booster pump to the mains water pump?

Yes, a booster pump can be installed to the mains water pump.

However, due to water supply regulations, pumps that draw more than 12 litres of water per minute cannot be connected to a supply pipe without permission, therefore, it’s typically a better option to install a separate water tank for your booster pump.

It’s highly recommended that you engage with a booster pump installation company who will be able to recommend the best course of action based on your situation.

A Buyers Guide to Sewage Treatment Plants

When you can’t connect to mains sewerage infrastructure, a sewage treatment plant is the recommended solution for waste treatment and disposal.

With septic tanks and cesspits slowly being phased out due to changing legislation and environmental consideration, many buildings across the UK are opting to have sewage treatment plants installed.

If you are thinking about having a sewage treatment plant installed at your commercial or domestic premises, our guide helps you understand what sewage treatment plants do, when they are suitable, how much they cost and what the benefits are.

What Is a Sewage Treatment Plant?

A sewage treatment plant is a below ground vessel that acts as an off-mains drainage solution for those that can’t connect to mains sewage.

Unlike cesspits and septic tanks, sewage treatment plants treat incoming wastewater to an acceptable level for discharge, making them more environmentally friendly.

How Do They Work?

Sewage treatment plants are multi-chambered units. First, the wastewater produced from the building through toilets, baths and sinks is deposited in the first chamber where the liquids and solids are separated by gravity.

The solids remain in the first chamber but the liquids flow into a biological chamber which is filled with compressed air, this helps to speed up the naturally occurring formation of bacteria.

Finally, the treated liquid is moved into the final chamber of the tank. Here the bacteria settles at the bottom of the tank to allow it to be moved back into the first tank whilst the clean water remains at the top of the tank.

The water at the top of the final tank can then be safely discharged out to a watercourse or to a ground soakaway field.

When Do You Need One?

Under the UK Building Regulations, if you can connect to the mains sewer then you should do this for the removal of sewage and wastewater.

However, if you are unable to connect to the mains sewers due to being in a remote location then you can review options for managing wastewater within your property.

It’s important to note that the responsibility for the waste produced lies with the owner of the property, so it’s critical that an appropriate solution is installed and properly managed if you cannot access the mains.

How Much Do They Cost?

As sewage treatment plants are far superior to cesspits and septic tanks in how they break down waste to a safe level, they do have a higher upfront cost and there are also additional costs to consider.

Once installed, you will need to budget for an annual service of the unit as well as emptying costs. In order to release sewage from the plant, you must first pay a small fee to get Discharge Consent.

Other considerations include the electricity costs to run the unit (which are very low due to the efficiency) and any repair and callout costs in the event of a pump breakdown.

To find out more, take a look at our blog posts which details all of the costs involved with installing and operating a sewage treatment plant.

What Are the Benefits of Sewage Treatment Plants?

A sewage treatment plant offers several benefits over other methods of sewage treatment such as septic tanks and cesspits. The key benefits include:

  • Treats wastewater to a safe level meaning that it can legally and safely be discharged.
  • Sewage treatment plants are modern technology which is reliable and extremely efficient.
  • Low running costs which offset the higher cost of installation.
  • Installation is simple and easy, though it should be done by a professional installer.
  • Whilst septic tanks and cesspits can reduce the resale value of your property, having a sewage treatment plant can make it worth more.
  • The system is compact and does not take up much room. Being underground, it will not impose on your outdoor space.
  • Alternatives such as septic and cesspits pose a number of potential dangers including gases, flooding and pollution. Sewage treatment plants are far safer in comparison.

What’s The Cost of a Sewage Treatment Plant?

Sewage treatment plants are used in commercial and domestic properties when access to mains drainage is not possible. The plant treats water to make it suitable to be discharged into a drainage field or watercourse.

With cesspits and septic tanks having a number of drawbacks including potentially dangerous gases being released, pollution and complications when trying to sell the property; most home and business owners are making the switch to a sewage treatment plant.

Whilst a sewage treatment plant is more expensive than a cesspit or septic tank, it provides superior performance and means that you can safely discharge water from the plant once treated.

In this blog post, we will examine the costs of buying and running a sewage treatment plant at your home or commercial premises.

Benefits of Sewage Treatment Plants

A sewage treatment plant is robust and extremely effective, offering many benefits over other methods of sewage treatment and disposal such as cesspits and septic tanks:

  • Sewage in a plant is treated to a safe level
  • Does not harm the environment
  • Reliable and modern solution
  • Cost effective over time
  • Compact system
  • Improve resale value of premises
  • Safer and poses lower risk to health
  • Simple and easy installation

Above all, a sewage treatment plant is a solution for the future. As environmental agencies impose stricter rules on the process of treating and disposing of wastewater; a proper biological wastewater treatment system ensures these standards are met.

Cost To Install and Supply a Sewage Treatment Plant

The cost to install a sewage treatment plant will vary dependant on a number of factors such as the size of the tank, the condition of the site and any additional extras you may wish to have installed.

In domestic premises, prices start from £2,000 subject to the size of the sewage treatment plant. The price of installation will vary and a site survey is generally required for an accurate figure.

Additionally, the price will be different if you are replacing an old system or a different type of sewage disposal unit or if you are installing one from scratch.

At Mawdsleys Pump Services, we design sewage treatment plant systems to meet the exact needs of our client; meaning you don’t pay anymore than you need to for a plant that meets your needs.

Additional Costs To Consider

As well as the initial cost to purchase and have the plant installed, there are other additional costs after installation that should be considered:

  • Annual Service – An annual service is essential to the ongoing performance of your plant and reduces the risk of breakdown. An annual service starts from just £350 in most cases subject to equipment and location.
  • Emptying – Once the sewage inside your plant is treated, it will need to be discharged. When a sewage treatment plant is emptied, there are costs involved including contractor fees and tanker charges.
  • Discharge Consent – In order to release sewage from the plant, you must first apply for discharge consent and will incur a fee for doing so. At Mawdsleys, we can help with discharge water testing and can also acquire discharge consent for your unit.
  • Repairs – In the event of damage to your plant, fast and professional repair is critical to ensure that you can use the facilities in your property once more. At Mawdsleys Pumps, we offer a 24/7 emergency pump breakdown service.
  • Power Costs – As sewage treatment plants require a power source, you will incur a cost to run the unit. However modern units are extremely efficient and use a small amount of power to run.
