BOKYWOX Food Grade Automatic Booster Review

Features

The BOKYWOX pump is one of the most popular and adjustable recirculating pump models available on the market. One of the reasons for this is that it is an automatic circulation pump. This means that it can auto-start when you open the faucet, and it can also auto stop when you close the tap. There is also an option for manual operation.

Another essential feature of this product is that it is highly efficient, and at the same time, it is characterized by low consumption of energy. The fact that it consumes less power than similar products makes it an environmentally- friendly option, which many people prefer.

The pump also features high-temperature resistance – it can resist up to 212 F high fluid temperature. There are built-in high sensitive electronic sensors that give the pump signals when to start and when to stop the running water.

What Does It Do?

BOKYWOX 120W 110V Food Grade Automatic Booster PumpThis BOKYWOX pump provides a high flow of water for all kinds of city buildings, villas, and suburban houses. If you are interested in statistics and numbers – the minimum water flow is 21Lpm (liters per minute). In other words, the pump is so powerful that it can be connected even to tankless water heaters. In addition to this, it can be used to circulate water in boilers, air conditioners, and solar systems. Thanks to its performance parameters, this product can be applied to most of our household heating appliances. You can connect this unit to both electric and gas water heaters. A definite benefit is that the pump can pass water even when there is no power. Also, it can be used to circulate both hot and cold water.

Unlike other products from the same class, this one can be used directly into drinking water pipelines. However, this doesn’t mean that it can be applied for potable water.

Keep in mind that the shaft should be installed and kept horizontally. Another thing to take into account is the fact that this pump is not self-priming. So it is your responsibility to make sure that all air is out of the system. You shouldn’t run the product empty – check if there is water in the pump before you switch it on.
