Pressure boosting

Use this application when you want to: 

  •  boost pressure of your water supply
  •  pump your wastewater up to a gravity wastewater system
  •  connect to a pressure sewer system.


Why do you need this application?

  1. You need to apply to pump water from your water connection to boost supply pressure:
  • if you're in a low pressure area
  • to serve fire services or header tanks for multi-storey buildings.

Note: You don't need our approval for a pump if there's a tank between your water main connection and the pump. 


2.    You need to apply to pump to a:
  • gravity sewerage system if your property's wastewater can't drain to our service
  • pressure sewer if you're not part of the Priority Sewerage Program.
