"I bought this as a direct replacement for a failed pump of the same type. The flexible slip-on connectors make it extremely easy to fit and I am delighted with the result"

small compact replacement pump
7 Feb 2014
By FordConsul
, shoreham
"My powerforce pump eventually packed up so opted for this new design salamander pump.
Not as powerful as the old one but certainly does the job. quiet running, not as noisy.
Its short and dumpy. a new design but under the bath no one can see it!
Fitting was easy, it comes with push fit hoses but I had to use longer ones due to my installation. a nice feature is the raised 'flow direction arrows' on the casing so you know which hose goes where.
Ideal replacement and being slightly less powerful, which is not a problem, means less water usage and now I'm on a meter it was the right time to replace my old one, afterall every little helps.

Quiet Pump
30 Jun 2014
By Ozymania
, Southampton
"Bought this pump to replace a 4 year old shower pump that burnt out. Installation was simple as pipework was already there, but it is no big deal to install anyway. The pump is quieter than the unit it replaced and so far it is working well with no problems. On balance, it seems a good twin impeller pump for a single shower application."

A good value basic shower pump
12 Jun 2014
By Elymac
, near Bury St Edmunds
"This is a compact and powerful little pump. It was very easy to fit as a replacement and the setting up process, too, was simplicity itself. The push fit connecting pipes are excellent and a real time-saver. I've had similar Salamander models in the past and have always been pleased, so let's hope this one is equally good. 'Does what it says on the tin'."

Disappointing!

"I've just returned my second faulty Salamander shower pump since March 2014!
When the unit worked - it worked a treat - noise wasn't an issue as it was hiddden behind a panel.
Both pumps started leaking water out of the side (within a week of operation) The capscrews would unlossen themselves causing water to eventually spurt out the sides!
Image shows jet of water from sides of shower pump.. soaked a bathroom in a couple of hours!"

Rubbish
6 May 2014
By Amsie
, Basildon
"Should have listened to the other Trade review. However thought I would try this pump due to its compact size. Shower would not operate unless the shower head was bought down to waist height. All pipework was installed correctly. Re-checked and flushed pipework and checked all inlet filters and still would not work unless the shower head was bought down to waist height.
Took back and swapped for the old model and all works, not after costing me half a day where I could have been working elsewhere though!"
