Heating and hot water

It might be surprising, but a high proportion of heating systems rely heavily on water pumps. Many radiators utilize circulating pumps that move hot water through the device’s pipes, thereby allowing the device to achieve the desired temperature. These circulating pumps are often also used to provide hot water to your taps. Whenever you use a non-electric radiator or turn on your hot tap, you’re probably using a circulating pump.

 Getting water into your home

Water pumps aren’t just used to circulate water around your home’s pipes: they are also integral to helping water reach your home. Water has to reach individual houses from a main supply or reserve via an enormously complex system of pipes. Obviously, this system has to use pumps to keep water moving and ensure that it reaches you the moment you need it.


Sprinklers and garden irrigation devices use water pumps to ensure that water reaches your garden at the right pressure and in the right quantities. If you’re passionate about gardening, you’ve probably used a water pump at some point without realizing it.
