The real Rollocks!
31 Dec 2014
By Anonymous
, Goffs Oak, Herts
" I have had the earlier model before..with daily use, it lasted over 10 years..that's reliability..as for the price..I purchased locally, ten years ago..when I called, didn't have in stock and couldn't order from suppliers, for a week, as they were closed for the Christmas break.. Ordered Sunday (am) on the Screwfix site..picked up Monday pm..alerted by text..and after 10 years plus..£30 cheaper today..Now..that's what I call Screwfix service and value! "

new pump
19 Dec 2014
By keefb
, berkshire
" this is my second salamander pump, bought this to replace existing 1.5 bar pump, so an upgrade.
the old unit is now installed with a relative, by no way unusable.
now have two showers so needed a little more power.
great quality comes with all you need to install, old unit never faltered hence good quality score.
these units are always quite pricy never want to spend hard earned cash on something like this but it will last. easy to install and no real setup up required , just plug and play.
small and quiet, installed in the airing cupboard "

Salamander CT75+
10 Dec 2012
By motnightmare
, Chingford London
" Salamander CT75+ Positive Head Shower Pump with Isolators 2bar
this shower pump is as good as it gets for the price, it does exactly as it says on the box, Its a lot quieter than my old unit, the pressure is very good and was very simple to fit 15min change over and this is for a moderate DIY man myself ,,Not sure yet about reliability as i have only fitted it only last month but so far so good,

Salamander CT75+ Shower Pump w
28 Jun 2012
By retrocarbon
, macclesfield
" This is a replacement for another salamander pump that is 5 years old which only failed due to a cracked housing on the hot side.excellent service life would recommend salamander always.
the supplied flex pipes with push in fittings, complete with isolators make this an easy product to change,depending on location a 1hour change over is very possible if not quicker .Cost is a little bit more than competition but in my opinion well worth the extra from a satisfied customer relations point.a nine foot head creates a good flow to a rain head shower using tank cold and hot water feed making sure the cold tank can handle the flow.

Very small powerful pump
16 Jul 2009
By Auklet

" Easy to fit with push fit fittings and very quiet (sat on a piece of concrete paving slab) I was most impressed especially with the price of£164.99 and for a single shower it is brilliant really does put the POWER in the shower. "

" You get what you pay for, its decent enough but watch out for leaks from impeller housing; the day after commissioning, the pump developed a weep from cold side plastic housing, was only visible if you lay on floor & watched pump for several mins & not enough to cause damage to surface but was an irritation having to return to job, especially since coyldn't charge for it! 1/4 turn on each of the allen bolts appears to have resolved the problem. These bolts should not be over tightened & frankly would expect a brand new pump to be fully checked, with bolts torque tested before leaving the factory! So don't go in cheap with the install charge & allow plenty of time for thourghly checking after install. "

Poor Quality
21 Mar 2012
By CaptainRich
, Huntingdon
" Pump is of poor quality and lightweight materials. First one I got had been opened and returned (didnt see this until i was on site). Pump was difficult to start and regularly pumped without demand. Had to replace with another which so far has worked but again has difficulty sensing demand even with a good pressure drop on the output. "
