Shower Pumps

Shower Pumps

The purpose of shower pumps is to boost the water pressure in your home in order for your new high power or mixer shower to function as it should ie with a good flow rate. Different kinds of showers require different pressure (mixer showers, for instance, require more) and which it’s important to always check the water pressure in your home before buying a new shower.

Having said that, if your heart is set on a particular shower then a shower pump could give you the extra water boost necessary.

How to check your water pressure

You can judge how good – or bad – your water pressure is by watching the rate at which your toilet cistern fills up. Around 15 litres a minute is judged to be a good water flow rate.

What kind of hot water system do you currently have?

You’ll need to know the type of hot water system in your home before you buy a pump. Older properties tend to have gravity water fed systems and problems with water pressure and more often than not you’ll need a pump if you’re adding a powerful or mixer shower. If your home has a combi boiler, on the other hand, you already have a high pressure vented system so the water pressure for your shower should be fine as it is. In fact, it’s against the law to use a shower pump with a combi boiler.

There are numerous manufacturers of shower pumps around. Here at Bathroom Supastore we stock the top-rated Stuart Turner shower pumps.
