The pressure booster pumps need to be sized to maintain the design pressure while experiencing the maximum expected flow at the lowest suction pressure to the pump. A pressure control valve is used to balance the system and maintain the desired pressure in the system as the flow rate decreases or suction pressure varies to avoid overpressurisation and control problems.   In instances where the flow  requirements vary significantly, multiple pumps are placed in parallel. As water consumption changes, additional pumps are staged on or off to maintain the pressure.
