Customer Questions & Answers

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

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?
Asked by: Anonymous
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.

Will it pump the water from a water tank and connect to my mist system?

I have hauled water and my water pump cycles constantly when my misters are on a timer (even when misters are not running since water faucet is on). Wondering if this will work to pump water from a storage container of water to mist system??
Asked by: Gloria
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!

Can I hook this pump to a non pressurized storage tank so I can used r/o water

The water district supplies water that is heavy in calcium and salinity and leaves a lot of residue on everything, I would prefer not to use this water supply
Asked by: Minimixermike
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!

3/8 in. 160 psi Booster Pump is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from junk pump used it for 45 minutes overheated and stopped junk. worked nice up until.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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!
