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.

Why choose us?
I was really pleased with the work that Jason has done for us. We were happy with the quote and that all the arrangements were in place. I would definitely recommend Jason and JAS Plumbing and Heating
I used Jason this week to replace a shower, sort out a leak in our bathroom and replace a toilet cistern. I have to say that he first came round the week before and quoted for the work and at this point I found him to be on time and polite, he sent me the quote within a matter of hours and we went ahead with the work. I arrived home from work to find the work completed within the timescales and there was not a sign of mess anywhere which is unusual these days when you have tradesman in, trust me I know. Jason also had to undertaken a little extra work on one of the issues and again didnt charge anymore and only told me when he had completed it. I would not have any issues recomending JAS Plumbing and we will be having him back to replace our downstairs and upstairs bathrooms as soon as we can.
