Pros: Cheap and simple to install
Cons: Casing rather lightweight and no vibration pads in the mountings
The pump was installed for a very "particular" client. It has done what we required in boosting the cold water supply from an existing cold water tank to all taps in the property.
Although this didn't have any vibration pads in the mountings there has been little vibration on the installed product
Pros: Compact size , Good value, Reliable , Well made
As we live in a bungalow our first Salamander pump was to boost presure on a shower, this second one was to boost pressure on hotwater tap at kitchen sink.
Both purchases were extemely successful.
However this second pump situated in loft is rather noisier than expected, but as it is only run in short bursts, can overlook this shortcoming.
Overall very efficient pumps and we are well satisfied.
Pros: This is our second Salamander pump, other one is on our shower. These are well built practical units, trouble free and reliable.
Cons: Have mentioned the pros, the only con, which is minor is that these pumps are noisier than I expected but as they are only used in short bursts one can overlook this shortcoming.
Installed to improve water pressure at kitchen sink and performs admirably.
Pros: great push fit fittings , very easy to fit , very sturdy outer shell
Cons: only thing that i would say is if it was fitted next to a living area it would be a bit noisy
fitted pump in my brothers house due to bad pressure
at thermostatic shower and was blown away with the pressure of such a small water pump great product
Pros: cost , easy fitting , seems well made
Cons: bit noisey. I though putting it in a loft would make me not notice but I still can
Well priced, well made. Comes with everything you need to install. I am using it for a shower and it took me, an amateur, about an hour to get up an running. All in all perfect for my needs. I might add though that its a 1.6 bar pump so don't expect much in terms of pressure. You get what you pay for
Pros: Good construction, Good design
Well designed and built pump which meets my requirements as a replacement for old one over 10 years old for a home shower. Would recommend this to anyone.
Pros: Easily installed., Solid, neat and tidy solution to poor water pressure. , Suitable for hot water use.
Cons: Initially, a *little* louder than expected, but you soon get used to it, and as soon as the tap stops, the pump stops, so it is not constant and intrusive.
This little pump is absollutely amazing - so powerful for its size! It comes with a comprehensive colour leaflet detailing the various set-ups in which it can be used. It's very solid and well built, and, at about 12" long, took up very little space and screw-fitted easily to the floor of my hot water tank cupboard, to do its job. My plumber had no problem fitting it at all, especially with the flexi pipes included, and was impressed with the pump. Some additional plumbing and electrical work was required, copper piping, wiring for the mains, and so on. You must use qualified tradesmen.
Drawing a bath used to be a painfully slow process, with my hot water tank being at the same level as the bath, but not any longer! It was a pleasure to run the bath for my son this week, and he got to splash around for 10 minutes longer as a result!. Because the pump has a plug, I can switch it off and use water pressure-only to fill the bathroom or kitchen sinks if I want, thus saving electricity as well. I am so glad I bought this!
Pros: My plumber says easy connections and functional.
Great product.. Fair price ! Due to living on Kenya coast humidity and salt air the first one brought here llasted 3 years before corrosion set in. This is my second one and having experienced performance worth using airline weight allowance to carry another back ! Have recommended to others in area who have also purchased.
