Choose the proper pump on your JoJo tank

Installing a JoJo tank to reap rainwater or as back-up storage to municipal water supply is step one in water storage for most householders. But once the tank is in place and connected, selecting the best pump could be a challenge.
Luckily, JoJo has a extensive range of pump options to select from. Before making your decide, ask your self these questions:
QUESTION 1:
Where is the JoJo installation in your property, and is noise a factor to consider? If your tanks are near a bed room window and the pump is linked to a relaxation room, you don’t need a noisy pump that can wake you up in the midst of the night time if a member of the family uses the loo! The identical applies if your tanks are on the property’s borders – offended WhatsApps from neighbours should not be part of your water storage journey.
JoJo’s Variable Speed Drive pumps provide fixed water strain and boast noise ranges under 60dB. To put this into perspective: 60dB is the sound a standard air conditioner makes when it’s operating. With a Centrifugal Pump, you might be able to maneuver larger volumes of water, however these pumps usually have noise levels between 60 and 74dB.

QUESTION 2:
What is the pump’s primary purpose? If the pump might be pushing water to your dishwasher or washer, then the smallest pump will do. But in case your JoJo tanks are connected to your showers and bogs, and an irrigation system on your backyard, a stronger pump is necessary – again, bear in mind to assume about noise levels if you install a bigger pump. If necessary, choose a different position for your JoJo set up so noise doesn’t turn into a difficulty.
