Choose the proper pump for your JoJo tank

Installing a JoJo tank to reap rainwater or as back-up storage to municipal water supply is the first step in water storage for most owners. But once the tank is in place and connected, choosing the right pump could be a problem.
Luckily, JoJo has a variety of pump options to choose from. Before making your pick, ask your self these questions:
QUESTION 1:
Where is the JoJo set up on your property, and is noise an element to consider? If your tanks are close to a bedroom window and the pump is connected to a bathroom, you don’t desire a noisy pump that may wake you up in the center of the night time if a family member makes use of the loo! The similar applies if your tanks are on the property’s borders – indignant WhatsApps from neighbours shouldn’t be a part of your water storage journey.
JoJo’s Variable Speed Drive pumps present fixed water stress and boast noise ranges below 60dB. To put this into perspective: 60dB is the sound a standard air conditioner makes when it’s working. With a Centrifugal Pump, you will be able to move larger volumes of water, however these pumps typically have noise levels between 60 and 74dB.

QUESTION Confidential :
What is the pump’s main purpose? If the pump might be pushing water to your dishwasher or washer, then the smallest pump will do. But if your JoJo tanks are linked to your showers and toilets, and an irrigation system for your garden, a stronger pump is important – once more, remember to consider noise ranges when you set up a bigger pump. If essential, select a different place in your JoJo set up so noise does not become a problem.
