fantastic pump!!!
2 Dec 2014

" Outstanding good value pump which comes with fittings which is a bonus! I can now have a decent shower before work on a morning now!
We would recommend this pump to boost your mains pressure, really did the trick here and very quiet too. 10/10 "

Improved shower massively
8 Jan 2014
By pressurelow

" We read lots of reviews online for this product and didn’t know whether this product would improve our issue. We have a rain shower head installed and we were only getting a very light amount of water out of it. It was still fine to have a shower, just the pressure wasn’t great.
We had contacted the water company to check the water pressure and we were advised that we had the minimum water pressure (1.5bar) and flow rate (9 litres per minute on cold). Therefore we weren’t sure that the pump would actually help us.
Pleased to report that it has made a really great improvement in the water pressure and I would recommend this product.
Only downside is that it is noisier than the DBs stated on the box and as the pump is in our kitchen which is open plan it gets a little noisy when the dishwasher, washing machine etc, is on.

Salamander Pumps HomeBoost HB
23 Mar 2015

" Fitted 2 days ago. nearly doubled water flow, a little noisy as fitted near stop cock in dining room, but well worth the inconvenience.
A bit expensive but having had very poor water flow we can now have an electric shower and actually enjoy it even when another tap is turned on in the house!!!

A good shower at last !!
1 Sep 2014
By johngt6
, Hampshire
" Got this because I was fed up with weak shower
and combi cutting out.
Went to a Salamander home boost road show, very impressed.
This has definitely sorted it, shower is so much better!
Cons:- It doesn't come with (and you are not told) with fittings for 15mm pipe work, so off you go to screwfix (this was really annoying )
All plumbed in & flushed...Didn't work!!! so off you go to screwfix AGAIN!! for replacement. All sorted.
it seems a bit pricey but with a two year guarantee it should realize it's value
Doesn't seem quite as quiet as made out, but soon blends in background

Reliable Pump
28 Aug 2014
By Hjeraj
, Stratford, London
" Installed this pump in a basement of a 2 storey flat to supply a few bathrooms, toilets & kitchens. It's quiet powerful and did the trick. As long as you install it correctly, it will do what it says on the box.
Opened multiple taps but it still supplied enough pressure to accommodate this.
Would recommend this pump to boost your mains pressure.

What Cost?
13 Mar 2015

" These pumps are fine but what cost are they to your neighbours? The water has to come from somewhere and these pumps draw pressure down from immediate properties. "
