Modern living can be a noisy business, whether it’s mobile ringtones, loud traffic or other people’s choice of music assaulting our ears. We all want to reduce noise pollution, especially in our homes.

Here at Salamander Pumps we know that noisy pumps are a big ‘no no’ for householders, and that when installers and consumers are choosing a pump, noise is very much a deciding factor. So we’ve invested a lot of our time into reducing noise in our range of shower and whole house pumps.

We’re a company compulsive about providing what our customers want, so we recently had all our pumps independently tested against our competitor's products by the UK’s leading acoustic test and calibration specialist, the University of Salford, so you don’t just have to take our word for it.

We’re proud to say we came out really well, with the majority of our range sitting somewhere between the sound of gentle rainfall and a quiet kettle on the boil. From as low as 42dBA.

If you will forgive us blowing our own trumpet for a moment, we’ve slashed our pump noise levels by 15% in the last five years – that’s quite an achievement.

As a result of this hard work we are pleased to confirm that CT Xtra, CT Force, the new Right Pump Range and our HomeBoost mains water pump have all achieved the Quiet Mark award, making them some of the quietest pumps in their class.


See for yourself just how quiet our pumps are by checking out the Noise Ratings page on our website. You can see how some of our twin pumps rank against competitor products, and you can even click on the link to listen to one of our pumps in operation.

If you want to know more about our product testing, give us a call on 0191 5162002.

We can’t promise you that our shower pumps will be silent, but we can say they are some of the quietest on the market. And that’s a fact.
