Anything is possible, the problem is cost / reliability.

For example, finding a "only" pressure switch is not easy and there is a chance that you will pay more for it than the 1st price suppressor ...

It is like aluminum profiles which are more expensive, per kg or linear meter, than ladders ...

your pump (which must be an empty cellar) must be able to build up pressure, at least 3 bar,
recover an expansion tank and mount it on the model of the booster and obviously find a pressure switch (I had bought one, it can be found at "tool warehouse", price ???

See this same subject that ends with a variety of equipment where we got tired for nothing: abandon KO !!

For 147 € (er 119 € in Germany) we have everything working, pump, booster, pressure switch vase, without intellectual work to understand!
ebay sells songs on dominilab !!

With the submerged pump, you can fill a high tank with a flush type float that controls a switch that stops the pump when full, for a few €.
The water flowing by gravity from the tank feeds taps, cabinets and showers without a booster!

it is sure that the booster is more practical, (I got mine for around 80 €)
but if you want to tinker, nothing prevents ........

Hi everybody.
Sure enough I looked a bit on my side and I will rather buy a pump with booster, it will go faster ... I will test the do-it-yourself when I have more time
thanks guys
