How does a water mains booster pump work? Isn’t the flow rate solely determined by what reaches the property in the first place? Leave a comment

When getting quotes for a boiler replacement, we’ve been recommended to install a mains booster pump (e.g., Salamander HomeBoost). We live in a 3rd story UK flat and currently get a dismal 5 l/min flow rate, so the prospect of improving our flow rate/pressure is an appealing one, but I’m struggling to understand how a pump can increase the flow of water arriving to our flat in the first place. Is anyone able to explain the mechanism by which these systems work to somehow draw more water from the incoming system?

Thanks very much for any help!
