Tired of your underperforming shower? Is it more of a drizzle than a deluge?
The most cost effective way to increase the power of your shower is with a shower pump.
The CTFORCE30TU is part of the new range from Salamander. It’s a twin impeller regenerative pump designed to ensure your shower works to the best of its abilities.
Twin Impeller means the pump will boost both hot and cold water to an outlet or a shower.
They pump both hot and cold water individually or at the same time and are designed to be used with gravity fed water systems.
Ideally a twin pump is suited for use with showers and mixers as they produce a balance supply to give better mixing capabilities. Positioned best at the base of the hot water cylinder as they push water to the shower.
The pump is supplied with anti-vibration feet to assist in stability and to aid in reducing excess noise during use. No more worries about waking the entire household when having a morning or late night wash.
Regenerative pumps works in a very similar way to a powered water mill. Grabbing hold of the incoming water, rotating it then throwing it out the opposite side of the impeller. The biggest benefits to this style of pumps are the reliability and ease in which they can be installed.
A 3 year guarantee is supplied as standard. If you register your pump with Pumpwise then this can be increased to 5 years.

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. Sent off my £30 cash back offer...nothing heard as yet.
