A Victorian house with a maze of gravity fed plumbing. 5 showers and low pressure kitchen tap. I was sceptical about taking out the two electric showers which worked well so we could have one pump that did all and I am delighted to say that it did not disappoint. Great pressure in all the showers, taps etc. The unit doesn't take up much space and sits on the floor of the airing cupboard. It makes some noise but it is not objectionable and switches off soon after the water stops running. My plumber recommended and installed this pump and I am glad he did! Plumbworld prices were better than the others I had sourced and delivery was the next day which is not something we often get when living in Northern Ireland. I can recommend this wholeheartedly. Important that you choose a good plumber who either has installed a pump before and has read in the instructions. Note: If it doesn't turn off when the water has stopped then check for a leak including toilets eg if a cistern is constantly filling the pump will keep running!
My last pump was a Stuart Turner twin three bar, and I installed that in 2006. No problems from the previous one, we live in a soft water area (Ayrshire). New pump is quieter, but it has reduced-bore connectors to accomodate service valves that I'm not best pleasedabout. Plus the "staggered" heights on the input and output meant I had to fettle my setup to accomodate it. Perhaps some "standard plate" interface could be used in future so that replacing a pump is easier, plus whether service valves are included being made an option. Overall, bloody good pump. Impressed. :-)
Unfortunately it had 22mm connectors and all my pipes are 15mm so I decided to return it and order another. It was done reluctantly because the product engineering looked too good for a domestic pump. I replaced it with a similar make but 2.0 Bar. Delivery was prompt but I had to pay for its return as it wasn’t damaged so I was mildly disappointed. However I found the insuranc quite steep and was particularly annoyed when the courier implied that if I didn’t insure it I obviously wasn’t bothered if it got thrown around; I took it as a threat!.
When we bought the house we inherited a power shower with a Stuart Turner pump. You had to turn it on via a pull switch and it was noisy, but it did the job. It also took ages for the water to flow. So searched the net and found Plumbworld and ordered a Stuart Turner Monsoon 3.0 Bar Twin Impeller Positive Head Shower Pump and it was with me the next morning, plumber came in next morning and fitted it. What a difference, for one we can barely hear the pump running. The pressure is greater and strangely the water appears to be hotter.
As I understand Suart Turner make the best shower pumps. I bought this to replace the previous model which packed in after 11 years reliable service. Plumbworld offered the best price I could find, good telephone communications and delivered next day (to Northern Ireland, yes that's correct) Although the courier delivered to the wrong address, 4 doors down the other side of the street, Plumbworld could not be faulted for that. So, a massive 5 stars, excellent customer service and value for money.
We order this item to replace an existing Monsoon and the item was delivered quickly from Plumbworld. Would have no issue using them again. Note: Like for like swap should have been straight forward but watch for the fact newer models have input and output connectors at different height but the flexible hoses are the same length so you will need to change your pipework. New motor runs much quieter than old model. Excellent build quality as expected from Stuart Turner.
There are no negatives with this purchase. Good pump. Good price. Even good delivery from Yodel which I'm told is unusual but perhaps my informant was biased. All in all, five star.
