Salamander CT50+ Twin Positive
9 Jun 2014
By mg190plus
, Epsom
"As usual SCREWFIX was blindingly quick with its ordering process for next day collection. I have installed the same pump in another house and found it to be reliable and reasonably quiet. This one went into an awkward location which meant only one of the flexible couplings could be used as they are very short. The instructions are general and not pump specific. It would help if Salamander marked the inlet and outlet connections as it is not obvious to a first time user."

Pump noise
20 Nov 2013
By Pantanal
, Lymington
"Had this pump since May 2012, It now makes a drumming / pumping type noise when switched off. Turn off the cold water feed into the pump noise stops! Turn back on noise returns, we live in a hard water area, Lymington. could the pump fins be blocked?
Any thoughts?

Good delivery from 1metre head
17 Sep 2013
By SparkyTyke
, Great Britain
"Good delivery from a Mira coda from a metre head.
Flexis are the usual fairly naff thing, i could have done with them both right angled, rather than a pair of straight and a pair of right angled, but it obviously depends on your particular installation.
Reliability, too soon to tell ??

Robust unit
10 Jul 2013
By DolphinDomesticServices
, Huddersfield
"I find this unit well built, decent length lead with attached plug.
Run's very quiet & positively activated.
Supplied flexi pipes are short, but then most are!
Increases water pressure to produce decent flow, when the header tank is only at ceiling height.

great boost to gravity shower
9 Jul 2013
By riddles
, Felixstowe
"Just moved house, and bought this to improve the terrible gravity-only shower. Spent a while researching pipe sizes and pressure amounts (didn't want to end up wasting my time for little improvement), but because of the good reviews ended up purchasing this bad boy over more expensive more powerful pumps and hooking it up with 15mm pipe both sides.
Turns out i needn't have worried - this pump and 15mm pipe is all we needed - the shower is fantastic now, but not so over-the-top powerful that the hot water drains in 5 minutes.
Highly recommended."

Direct replacement
16 May 2013
By snow1962
, Glasgow
"I bought this to directly replace the older model of this pump that was now not performing so well. Is more or less an exact match for the old one so installed trouble free.
Hope to get another 6 or 7 years from this one.

This pump kicks!
27 Feb 2013
By oldgits
, bristol
"Recently had a new ensuite put in and replaced old mira thermo shower valve with a Bristan valve. dramatic loss of water pressure resulted. Don't know why... Anyway fitting this pump has completely sorted it out. Superb pressure now, and I personally can't see how you'd need more than 1.5 bar, unless you've a massive showerhead or are used to standing under the Angel Falls... It's a quality looking well built unit. I've stood mine on a double layer of carpet underlay, to reduce sound/vibration. But it's pretty quiet anyway. Makes a high frequency sound which it not intrusive especially in a closed airing cupboard. Don't know about reliability yet, but very pleased with this quality pump."

Good value with 2yr warranty
8 Feb 2013
By Gawky
, Leeds
"Easy to fit (so my plumber said), great flow and pressure even with a large shower-head.
Mounted easily approx. 2.4m below header tank in airing cupboard next to hot-water cylinder.
2+1 yrs warranty via registration.
Only just fitted so can not comment on reliability.
It is a tad noisy though but that could be just down to the fact we have stud walls.

Decent shower pump
29 Aug 2011
By Tragopan
, Saffron Walden
"Chose the Salamander after reading a few other reviews. It was easy to fit (push fit flexible connections) and it works very well: reasonably quiet, instant pressure; works well with our Victorian style shower head. I was unsure about which connections were inputs and which were outputs; it was not clear (to me) from the very brief accompanying instructions. (The outputs point upwards and the inputs come in horizontally.)"

Nice pump
18 Jul 2011
By TimmyG
, Surrey
"I've had this pump installed for a previous bathroom for 5 years so know it is reliable. This one comes with isolator valves which the original didn't which is a bonus. It's probably not the quietest but that's no problem when having a short shower. Feels of good quality at a reasonable price."

Quiet shower
13 Apr 2011
By Moto
, Weston-Super-Mare
"I bought this shower pump to replace another, a well known brand beginning with T! - This is a much better pump, quiet, more powerful and cost about the same. The previous pump was one of three that have lasted, on average, 2-3 years each. We do have a lot of showers here but I'm confident that this pump will outlast the others already."
