Why Do I Need a Shower Pump?

In the UK, a lot of homes have a heating and hot water system that relies on gravity to move water around the home, this type of plumbing system is called a gravity fed system. Find out about the different plumbing systems here.

Whilst perfectly adequate for most of a household’s needs, gravity fed systems can rarely provide enough pressure to give a powerful, invigorating power shower or quick bath-fill, and that’s where our shower pumps here at Salamander Pumps come in.

Our shower and whole house pumps push water around inside them, creating pressure which then forces the water out of the tap or shower more quickly, giving you that power shower experience using a pump. The additional pressure created by the pump helps create a more invigorating shower, or can help your bath fill more quickly.

Poor Mains Water Pressure

Some households don’t have a gravity fed system but suffer from poor mains water pressure, often via a combi boiler. This could be at certain times of the day e.g. first thing in the morning when many others in the street are using their water to run a bath or shower. This can often be solved by our HomeBoost mains water booster pump.
