The UK’s Quietest Shower Pumps
Actual comparative tests under laboratory conditions confirm that Stuart Turner manufactures the quietest peripheral (regenerative) shower pump available.
Anti-vibration Hoses as Standard
Supplied complete with 15mm anti-vibration hoses.
EPDM/PTFE/Aluminium Oxide Seals
PTFE and Aluminium Oxide seal materials provide the most reliable sealing solution available, reducing risk of pump leakage and resulting water damage to the home while the use of PTFE (Teflon) also reduces the chances of the seal sticking when a pump is not used for periods of time.
Stuart Turner shower pumps use less power than competitors products, saving money and the environment.
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.
Dry Run Protection
Dry run protection is really important for the wellbeing of your shower pump. Bearings and other internal parts may get seriously damaged if there is a blockage or a drop in pressure causing the pump to run dry.
Flow Switch Sensitivity
An automatic flow switch is crucial to have the shower running when it needs to be. When flow exceeds 0.8 litres per minute the pump automatically starts, delivering that powerful flow that it’s there for.
Induction Motor with auto-reset thermal trip
Thermal protection prevents dangerous overheating if the motor shaft locks or the bearings seize. It’s a valuable addition to stop your shower pump from being damaged should the worse happen and a fault occurs.
CE Marked for safety
CE marking means that the product is assessed thoroughly before it is listed for sale on the market whether that be in a shop or online. It means that the product meets certain requirements, like health and safety, to allow it to be sold.
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.

Supplied rubber feet are perfectly adequate if you seat on a firm base with well supported inlet/outlet hoses thus minimising sound sources. Pump seems well balanced with very little vibration. Installed in my bungalow loft (where there is no frost risk) alongside a new 50 gallon water tank on a raised platform giving 600mm head to the pump inlet via a short run of 22mm copper pipe. Approx 2M 15mm polypipe output to feed an Aqualisa Quartz 10.kW electric shower a further 1M below the pump. The whole system works sweetly and you wouldn't know there was a pump running. Not 5 stars only because I can't vouch for longevity.
