The latest in a long line of innovations from Whale, the Watermaster IC Pump Controller eliminates the need to adjust your pressure switch and stops the pump running dry.
Whale's new product has been getting lots of press coverage lately, and has been hailed as 'the water system upgrade caravanners have been waiting for' by Caravan Industry magazine.
Caravan Times were also keen to find out more about how Whale's new Watermaster IC Pump Controller was developed. Click here to view the video.
How does watermaster IC work?
In a pressure based water system a surge in battery voltage can cause the internal pressure switch in the socket to fluctuate. This leads to pulsations in water flow. Similarly, if the battery voltage drops, the pump may be unable to product enough pressure to activate the pressure switch and the pump may run on continuously. Also, if the external water container runs out, the pump will continue to run on. This drains the battery and may reduce the life of the pump. Until now the only solution has been to manually adjust the pressure switch.
Watermaster IC eliminates these problems and the need for pressure switch adjustment.
Innovative electronic control circuitry monitors the level of battery voltage and compensates for any surges/reductions in battery voltage that can occur. It also cleverly senses when the water container runs dry and switches the pump off.
• Never adjust your pressure switch again
- Enjoy a smooth, constant water flow
• Never let your pump run dry
- Protect and prolong your submersible pump’s life
Easily retro-fitted to any Whale Watermaster pressure switch socket*, the Watermaster IC Pump Controller is available to buy now and the kit comes complete with a High-Flow Watermaster pump.
*The Whale® Watermaster IC Pump Controller is ONLY compatible with Watermaster sockets with built-in pressure switches (ES1001 / ES5001). It is NOT compatible with in-line pressure switch systems.
