Salamander 1.5 Bar Twin Positive Head Centrifugal Shower & Bathroom Pump - RP50PT
£155.99 (Inc. VAT)
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 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.
Twin Impeller Shower Pump
Twin pumps are designed using the highest standard of technology to boost your water pressure of both hot and cold water supply to a single shower, bath, shower mixer or mixer tap. Put a stop to low water pressure with this pump. It is perfect for transforming your unsatisfactory shower into a powerful and invigorating shower that you'll never want to leave.
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.
This pump features an innovatively designed bypass tube which diverts the water from the end of the pump that isn’t pumping water. This can happen when one tap is switched off when a bath or basin is being filled, so the crossover is there to stop the expansion from overheating on the side of the pump which doesn’t contain any water.
Premium twin end pump
This wonderful premium twin end pump is compatible with showers, baths, basins, toilets, and a range of other home appliances when installed in a positive head gravity fed system. The pump works to efficiently boost both the hot and cold-water supply as quietly as possible.
Quite 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!
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.
3 Year Guarantee
When buying anything for your home you need to know that its going to stand the test of time. This is why this product comes with a fantastic 3 year guarantee against any manufacturing defects should the worst happen and the product is not up to standard.
Flexible hoses included
This shower pump comes complete with 4 x 15mm Pushfit Couplers (2 x Straight, 2 x Angled) (with Isolating Valve), which are used to link your shower pump to both incoming and outgoing water pipes. These hoses lmit the transfer of vibration from the motor and pump to the associated pipe work, helping to reduce noise and prevent damage to the pump itself.
WRAS Approved for quality
If you’re buying any sort of water fitting or product then it’s important that its WRAS (Water Regulations Advisory Scheme) approved. It’s the best way to work out if that particular product or part complies with the UK requirements for installation within the UK.

This was bought from Plumbworld to replace a 10 year old Salamander shower pump. Plumbworld’s technical guy was extremely helpful - knew his stuff and advised me which model was best for our needs/installation. I plumbed it in, made some improvements to the original bathroom fitters installation- using foam pads, including the ones supplied with the pump, and the result was a MUCH quieter shower pump, both from the motor noise AND the vibration noise. The kit includes replacement flexipipes. We’ll certainly be using Plumbworld again.
The shower pump arrived promptly,it was well packaged and it had residual water when the end caps were removed which meant the pump had undergone a pre delivery testing.I was replacing the previously fitted pump which was also a Salamander which had given me a good service life.Fitted and running it was so quiet, I am happy with the purchase and the price and would recommend this pump to anyone.
Bought this as a replacement for a CT75 pump and couldn't believe how quiet this was in comparison. I didn't realise a difference of +10dB is double!!! This just sounds like a running tap where as the CT75 was so loud!!!! Also very quick delivery and the best price I could find. Highly recommeneded.
Bought this to boost the pressure in our en-suite shower. It was easy to install in the airing cupboard. It has transformed the shower from what was just a gravity fed trickle to a great power shower. Really pleased with the performance of the pump.
This pump was to replace existing salamander pump that is now discontinued. So far works well and just as good (pressure/sound) as one it replaced. Hopefully if I don't melt this one it'll last the 14 years the old one did.
Purchased to replace an old Watermill pump. The installation was straightforward and the difference in noise is astonishing. Little more than the normal sound of a tap running. Very pleased and would highly recommend.
I have no experience at all in fitting pumps. But when my plumber let me down, I thought ‘how difficult could it be. I was right! Absolute doddle! So quiet that I had to check that it was plugged in
Excellent service from plumbworld Pump comes with all pushfit pipe fittings and even includes a plug These are much quieter than earlier versions Easy change over as pipes have isolator built in
Replaced 15 year old Salamander predecessor and installed flawlessly. Lovely and quiet - powerful too. Great price and fantastic service from Plumbworld.
Purchased pump to replace earlier model. Connections were the same so very easy to replace. Pump works well and is quieter than previous one
