What is a pressure booster? A pressure booster takes the incoming water pressure and increases it by a desired amount of pressure. In the city of Chicago our water pressure can sometimes be as low as 30 pounds coming into our homes. 30 pounds is adequate for most people however someone that relocated here from out of the area might be used to considerabley higher pressure and desire a booster installed for their comfort and convenience. Another reason you might want a pressure booster installed is if you have a 2 or 3 story home and that 30 pounds in the basement becomes only 20 pounds by the time it gets to the top floor. 20 pounds is very low and most people would not be satisfied at that low pressure. In the city of Chicago it is actually code to have a booster in a 4 story building and higher and even in some 3 story buildings depending on their floor height.
