With homes getting more technologically advanced consumers are finding that appliances are requiring higher pressures in order to operate. This could potentially cause you a problem if you have lower water pressure. A solution to this problem could be a Salamander shower pump. They are designed to boost pressure in both the hot and cold water supplies to thermostatic or manual mixer valves. They are also suitable for use with a large range of shower types and accessories such as heads.

Positive Head

Positive Head

Positive head shower pumps are for gravity-fed systems only. As a rule, if your cold-water tank is above the shower (maybe you have a shower in a converted room downstairs) and you have a flow rate as little as 0.5 bar, then you will need a positive head shower pump.

Powerful noise reducing technology

It’s no surprise that shower pumps can be on the noisy side considering the job that they do. That being said, they don’t have to be, providing they’re designed with noise reduction in mind. Salamander pumps are exactly that, featuring noise and vibration reducing feet which work in perfect sync with the natural vibration of the motor. Also, the materials used within the pump are capable of dampening the vibration of rotating parts, reducing noise further.


Solid state switching

Solid State Switching is the activation system used within Salamander shower pumps. Where other pumps rely upon moving parts within them to activate, the new solid state switching from Salamander uses an electronically operated switch with no moving parts, thus improving the reliability, the sensitivity, and the overall product life.


Compact size

Salamander are champions when it comes to producing small yet powerful shower pumps. This is not only great for an installer but you too, allowing you to fit and operate it in smaller than normal areas. Size really does matter when it comes to shower pumps and flexible installations.

Quiet Mark

Silent Showering

Quiet Mark approved means when the water is running you won't hear the pump operating - making it perfect for early morning and late night shower users!

Stuart Turner Showermate Continuously Rated Motor

Continuously Rated Motor

Continuously rated shower pumps effectively run until the user turns it off. This is particularly good in a family home where the shower needs to be used frequently throughout the morning or evening. A pump that isn’t continuously rated will turn itself off to allow the pump to cool, potentially causing issues with water pressure to the shower.

    5/ 5

    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. Its 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!

    Fitted this pump in a first floor flat, having some concern about the noise to flat below. The pump is very quiet and this is a big plus for this installation, so no worries. Simple to fit but DO follow instructions for flushing. Works perfectly as hot water booster to shower and two taps. Very pleased with Shower Pumps Service , highly recommended.

    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.

    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 dont expect much in terms of pressure. You get what you pay for

    5/ 5

    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

    Brilliant service from ordering to receipt of product. This was a straight forward swap for a CT55 already installed, seems they only have an operational life of 3-4 years. Plumb World came up with the goods though with next day delivery and on time.

    The pump was delivered the day after order and works well in my 17th floor flat.

    I ordered this pump in order to solve the problem I have been having with poor hot water pressure. The pump arrived promptly and the information from the shower shop insured that I was able to collect the item when delivered. On first inspection the pump looked sterdy and well built. My plumber found the pump easy to install however on further reserch found we would have to get the salamander S flange to go on the cylinder tank to insure the pump was compatible. Once installed the pump operates on demand when the hot water taps or shower are operated and it deliveres a very good pressure to the shower head despite being on the same level as the cylinder tank and having to climb a 2m shower hose. so to sumb up some extra parts were required at small cost, it was easy to install by the plumber and it operates very well, I would recomend this product to anybody whom needs to improve there hot water pressure on a cylinder tank system.
