Is a Pump Right For You?

WaterFed® in and of itself is pretty amazing. The concept behind pure water cleaning is brilliant. And more, pairing it with poles that allow you to clean windows as high as six stories is truly brilliant. Sometimes though, that concept needs help from other tools to become fully realized. In this instance, we are talking about pumps. Pumps are never required to get pure water clean, but they may be necessary when you are looking for height and power that may not be otherwise achieved with tap pressure.

1. The first instance is if you have less than ideal pressure from a job’s water source. With the exception of the DS9 system, you are at the mercy of your building’s PSI (pounds per square inch), to drive water through your filters. A pump is going to allow your system to produce a lot more purified water, which means your windows will be able to be cleaned faster because rinsing windows off will be significantly faster. In combination with a WaterFed® system, a pump has the potential to make your business more money and give it the ability to expand in the future.

2. Another instance you may find yourself in need of a pump to combine with your WaterFed® system is if you need your cleaning reach to extend higher than it has the ability to now. A pump will not only drive your water through the WaterFed® filters in a way that regular tap pressure could only dream of doing, it will also use the pressure to drive the now purified water up your pole. This allows you to reach heights above four stories. On the business end of things, this will allow your company to bid on a larger variety of jobs.

All right, you might want a pump. But is it right for your system?

Having a pump can be the solution to your WaterFed® dilemma dealing with power and pressure, but it is not the best solution for every system.

DI Systems

If you have a DI only system, ones like the abc Photon or the Unger Hydro, you may want to pause before the purchase of a pump. A DI only system has very little resistance caused by the DI filter, in other words, a pump is not going to help your system produce much more water. This system itself is ideal for those people looking to dip her or his toes in the WaterFed® pool, so to speak.

Multi-Stage Systems

Multi-stage systems, however, are ideal systems to use a pump with because the multiple filters that the water will have to run through will slow down the flow of the water. A pump will be able to pressurize the water to push it through the filters and in turn, you’ll see a significant increase of water coming out of your WaterFed® system.

A pump can be the answer if you’re wondering what can take you to the next level in WaterFed® cleaning. While it might not be for everyone, a pump can be the boost of water pressure that your cleaning strategy needed to get to that next level, whether that be a higher window or to more job bids.
