will this pump be effective with a standard 1/2" PVC drip system?

This question is from 3/8 in. 160 psi Booster Pump
Asked by

I purchased the pump and am concerned that it may not increase the pressure in my proposed misting system. I am planning on using an adaptor to increase the 3/8" hose on the pump outlet to 1/2" for standard PVC and running that along my gazebo to the Orbit 1/2" PVC split sections with misting nozzle (Store SKU # 130605).

My question is this, with the increase of the pressure line diameter from 3/8 to 1/2, will this pump be effective in increasing the pressure as advertised?

Answer: 
Pressure in a closed system is equal regardless of the container size or shape. (discounting head pressure which is likely negligible in this setting) It might take slightly longer to reach 160psi (likely seconds) in 1/2 inch vs 3/8. As long as you don't exceed the recommended number of nozzles, you'll be fine.

Answer: 
Hi Socal Aaron - I was curious if you gave the booster pump a try on the 1/2 inch PVC system? We bought this system thinking we could use the booster pump...and now i am finding out they say not to. I don't see why it would not work, but was curious if you tried.

Hi! Thanks for the question. We recommend using the 3/8 in. 160 psi Booster Pump with with Orbit Professional Outdoor Mist Kit (model #11760). We do not recommend using the Booster Pump with the PVC mist system.

Answer: 
Gloria, that depends on the water pressure generated by your water tank. For the pump to work correctly and as intended, you will need a constant pressure of at least 40 PSI. Please feel free to contact our Support team at 1-800-488-6156 if you have any other questions, and we'd be happy to help. Thanks!

Answer: 
Minimixermike, yes you can feed the booster pump from an r/o storage tank. Although non-pressurized, there is ambient pressure from the volume of water in the tank itself. The ambient water pressure will depend on the amount of water above the tank outlet spigot at any given moment. You may proceed in this manner, but we leave a strong caution to you. As the tank level drops, the inlet pressure to the Read More
Minimixermike, yes you can feed the booster pump from an r/o storage tank. Although non-pressurized, there is ambient pressure from the volume of water in the tank itself. The ambient water pressure will depend on the amount of water above the tank outlet spigot at any given moment. You may proceed in this manner, but we leave a strong caution to you. As the tank level drops, the inlet pressure to the pump will drop, causing the pump outlet pressure to drop as well. This won’t be a problem if the water level in your tank is never allowed to drop below the tank outlet spigot, but if that did happen, please be aware that the pump would then run dry and be ruined. If you have further questions, please contact our Support team at 1-800-488-6156. Thanks! Read Less

Rated 3.0 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Just okay, make sure this is what you need. This is simply a diaphragm pump in a case, you must have good pressure going in, and the boost is not that great, but probably decent for most applications if matched correctly with the right misting line and nozzles. Don't wast your time trying to match fittings to integrate into another system. This simply has the push type fittings in and out. April 29, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not pleased! Like one of the other reviewers, I could not attached the tubing to the pump. She was given a very vague answer with links that don't work. After wasting way too much time searching the internet for the solution to no avail, I returned the pump and the kit to Lowes. The instructions that come with the product are a joke. Perhaps there was something missing from the box, but it looked like it was factory sealed. If there are connectors that need to be purchased separately you should mention it, and it they are included you should show a picture of them on the instructions so that at least the buyer will know that something is missing. What a waste of my time! July 21, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Finer most but very loud Definitely makes a finer mist leaving the patio less wet. However we returned it because the noise level with the pump running made sitting outside unbearable. July 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Does what it says.. The wife and I just got done erecting a greenhouse and have been experimenting on how to keep it cool during the recent heatwave we have been having in central Texas. Inside the greenhouse has been reaching temperatures of up to 120*. I installed just the Pro system without the booster pump and it dropped the temperature about 10* in almost 30 minutes, but drenched the plants. After installing the booster pump, it would only take about 15 minutes to drop the temperature almost 30*. Definitely get a pressure gauge and pressure reducer for the inlet pressure. My house has almost 90psi of water pressure and it was constantly popping off the slip-lok connectors. The system seems to works best between 30-40psi. Home Depot had the best price for this pump that I could find. June 19, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by this made the difference to eliminate wet sidewalks Prior to installing this pump, the sidewalks outside my business would get wet. Now the mist evaporated and sidewalks are dry. The quick connect pump installed in about 30 minutes and I needed to drill through stucco to install indoors to prevent theft. Works great. I would recommend that you have the nozzles a minimum of 8 feet high for proper evaporation. August 16, 2013

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amped up the misting system! Purchased the booster pump for our patio misting system. So impressed! It really made a huge difference on our 30' patio! Without the pump the patio would get wet from the heavier "mist." Not a problem now as the mist is truly fine. No need for more psi...this is perfect for the backyard patio! Bring on those 3 digit temps! June 8, 2013
