Low pressure at the suction side of a pump can encounter the fluid to start boiling with reduced efficiency cavitation damage of the pump as a result. Boiling starts when the pressure in the liquid is reduced to the vapor pressure of the fluid at the actual temperature.

To characterize the potential for boiling and cavitation, the difference between the total head on the suction side of the pump - close to the impeller, and the liquid vapor pressure at the actual temperature, can be used.

Based on the Energy Equation - the suction head in the fluid close to the impeller can be expressed as the sum of the static and the velocity head: hs = ps / γ + vs2 / 2 g where (1)
