Default new pump

Hi guys
Just a quick one , If i change my water pump from a submersed one to a pressure operated one , would I still be able to use the same taps if I disable the micro switchs or would the pressure be to much for them.
Cheers
chas

Something like the Fiamma aqua 8 should work fine with your existing taps.

pressure switch is set to 22psi and flow rate is 7ltr or 10ltr minute depending on model

the 7ltr is rated at 1.4amps and the 10ltr is 3.4amps so your existing fuse should be OK, but check the fuse rating first.


you wont need to disable the micro switches, just simply join together the wires leading to one of the taps to give a permanent 12v supply.

I did the same on a caravan we owned in the hope of making it a bit more self sufficient than a water hog and external pump.
that was originally on micro-switches.

worked absolutely fine but I couldn't find an internal tank to fit so scrapped the project.
