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.
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.
Regenerative pumps work in a similar way to a classic water mill, making them reliable and easy to install. This type of pump rotates incoming water and moves it back to the opposite side of the impeller.
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.
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.
This universal pump is suitable for use with both a positive or negative head. It boosts water pressure for gravity fed hot water systems, giving you the perfect shower each and every day.
When it comes to shower pumps you want something that’s going to last, especially if you’re fitting it underneath a bath or at the back of an airing cupboard. That’s why the components need to be reliable, and you don’t get much more reliable in the bathroom than brass. These Salamander pumps feature heavy duty brass ends designed to give you year after year of total reliability.

I installed this as a replacement pump for a standard shower pump fitted in the loft. It is an excellent and quiet pump. However one word of caution, it is a crossover pump. This means if your hot water pressure is either low or aerated it pushes cold water through the hot side to prevent damage the pump. As I only had the expansion pipe for hot water , I had to fit a small hot water holding tank. For a standard fitment however there should be no problem.
Second pump we have had and this one is so much quieter and powerful than the previous one, well worth the extra cost.
I bought this to replace an older pump, as I was installing an ensuite, and I bought a negative head, or universal, pump as the head is marginal. Fitting was straight forward although when priming the pump the water does not - or did not - flow through the cold side of the impeller as it did with the hot, it only seeped through. A quick call to the help line put my mind at rest. It is still quite noisy (in the airing cupboard, by the hot water tank) even though I also purchased a sound mat. Pressure is good but if you have a large square rainfall shower head as do I it is only rainfall whereas at 3bar I was hoping for tropical storm Alfred. As for the rest only time will tell.
