Shower pumps are available as twin or single ended, positive head or universal. Shower pumps are ideal for boosting hot and/or cold supplies to thermostatic or manual mixer valves, supplying a wide range of shower types and shower heads, individual taps, cisterns and whole house boosting applications.
One of the biggest problems with Shower pumps is incorrect installation.
Does your shower pump have a dedicated supply from the hot and cold tanks?
The Hot supply to your Shower pump be fitted with one of these valves:
This ensures that no air can get into the shower pump and prevents the pump running dry which can cause damage to the propellers.
The cold supply should be directly from the cold water tank as far away from the inlet valve as possible.
The pump should be sited at the base of the hot water cylinder or within 5 meters.
Have you got the right pump?
Positive head pumps are designed solely for pushing the water, they require a flow of water started by gravity to get them to work
Negative head pumps pull the water as well as pushing the water, these are used for showers that are above the cold water storage tank or shower pumps that need to go into the loft.
