Ormeau Water Pump Buying Guide

It is important to select the correct size water pump for the job in your area of Ormeau. The first thing you need to consider is the flow rate required and the pressure needed.

If the water is pumped at too low a pressure, you will not achieve the required flow rate.

Some common applications can be found below.

• Houses of an average size in Ormeau may use just two taps, the toilet and the shower. The maximum flow rate required for a typical household water pump is around 35 litres per minute.
• A larger home would need four tap combinations so 50 litres per minute is recommended.
• A larger home with two bathrooms needs a water pump able to deliver 70 litres per minute, so a household pump of this size should be suitable.
