“Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” claims the Declaration of Independence. In a society where everyone claims, “I have rights” many groups of people have certainly been added to this list.
This past summer I was frustrated when my lawn sprinklers did not work correctly - dry spots everywhere. What I discovered was that on my street, the City of Spokane was not providing good water pressure at all! Twenty-five pounds of pressure will hardly run onesprinkler head, no less an entire sprinkler system. My first thought was, “This stupid city - I pay dearly for water every month… why do they not supply an adequate amount?” Somehow, my cries fell on unresponsive ears with the government, so I was forced to find an alternate solution.
What I found was a booster pump. Water goes into the pump from the city line. From there, pressure is boosted with an electric pump motor. There are many of these pumps available, however most require a separate control switch and expansion tank. I found a model that had everything I needed built into one small compact unit. The Gurndfos Scala2 was very easy to install and cured the problem. Now back to, “Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”
