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.

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.

Positive Head

A positive head shower pump is designed to be gravity fed, therefore it needs a 'head' of distance (at least a metre) between the pump and the bottom of the cold water cistern. The gravity feed 'kick-starts' the pump, pushing water straight through to your shower.

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.



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.

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

    I bought a Salamander 2.6 Bar Twin Impeller Positive Head Pump (CT80B) I had searched the net for the cheapest pump and found that plumbworld was the cheapest, I ordered on line and received it in two days. I am not a plumber but I do have an idea how the plumbing world works. I found the pumb easy to fit and it works better than i thought it would, Iread on line that it was a good pump but the rubber feet come off easily so I made a simple wooden tray to sit the pump in and pinned the tray down with rubber washers and screws which works well. The pumb does work great and is a lot quieter than the one I took out. I rate Plumbword a 5 star because of the easy ordering and delivery. must say though the pump came with 22mm anti vibration connection pipes so I had to go to the local DIY store to buy 4 reducers which cost £6.00 in total for the cost of the reducers you would think that they'd be supplied as part of the fitting kit. overall I am very happy with plumbword and my purchase.

    Quality pump at a sensible price. This is my third shower pump, and in the past I’ve paid top money for products that only lady for a few years. This was well under half price of what I’ve paid in the past. It does the job just as well and looks well made. I’ll review again in five years and give you all an update!

    This ended up not being the right solution for pumping my whole system, but Salamander were really, really good at advising the best way to achieve this and the heavier construction brass CT Universal pump has worked perfectly for a year now. Highly recommended unit and manufacturer.

    Bought this pump to replace my old one and I'm not disappointed. I needed a pump that would power two showers, at the same time if required. This pump does the job superbly and is great value for money too. Easy to fit and commission.
