- Water supply on board -
To supply water on the boat, a number of water pumps are used and named according to their purpose and application.
Fresh water pumps, pressurised water pumps, drinking water pumps
Fresh water pumps, pressurised water pumps & drinking water pumps supply water on board. They are used to deliver the water from the tank to an outlet. Pressurised water pumps are located in the boat outside water tanks and are permanently switched on. They make sure water pressure in the pipes on board remains constant, so that the water reaches the outlet at full capacity. Depending on the manufacturer, these pumps can be called fresh water pumps, pressurised water pumps and drinking water pumps.
In line pumps
In-line pumps are ideal for the drinking water systems on smaller vessels. One in-line pump is used to supply water for each fresh water tap. In-line pumps can be installed like valves in pipelines and are connected to the outlet with a hose and cable. In-line pumps are operated via microswitches on the water tap (tapping point). In-line pumps for small boats are characterised by their low power consumption.
Flushing pumps are used for toilets, for example. They draw in seawater for flushing and only activate when the toilet flush switch is pressed.
Shower water pumps
Shower water pumps are grey water pumps and are used in bathrooms / wetrooms. They pump the used water to holding tanks / grey water tanks / outboards.
Double-port pumps allow the pump chambers to operate as two different pumps. In this way a tank (fish tank, ballast tank or similar) can be filled with seawater and a deck wash pump can be connected and used at the same time.
Water pressure systems / pressurised water systems
These systems are complete, compact pump systems featuring a pressure compensation tank, filter and other components. The compact systems are particularly suitable for boats with high water requirements and require various components to function correctly for them to be effective.
