"Fitted one of these for a customer and the cold side stopped working after 2 months. Screwfix replaced the pump without question but the new one was faulty, the hot side would not turn off! I didn't want to change to another make as this one fitted the original pipework so I took the flow sensors apart and found that the magnets were sticking. Made one good one from the two. Hope this works but if not I will try another make. Also seems to run very hot."
"fitted 2 of these and on both times customers contacted me after a short time to say they have stopped working, seems to be a fault with the flow switches not always working. Even after lifting the cws tank 2 foot higher it still packed in. I will not be fitting one of these again, stick to salamander rsp pumps which are bomb proof"
"We always fitted Salamander pumps so when a customer wanted a new pump fitted we recommended this one due to the price and the reliability of salamander. 1 week after installing we had a call from customer to say it wasn't working. Screw fix were great and replaced it without question. New one fitted. Another 2 weeks later and a now rather irate customer calls to say the new pump has stopped working. On investigation, the flow switches are getting stuck and not activating the pump. We will be replacing with a different make, such a shame as Salamander used to always to be a brand you could rely on. It has cost us 2 hours of extra work and also the trust of our customer."
"Bought this Salamander CT75 pump 2.0bar for new shower installation. The main reason for picking it was price and also the fact that advert in the screwfix book said it was "Impressively quiet". As soon as I turned the shower on for the first time however I was shocked by the racket it made. It was excessively loud, over 70 Db but worse than that was the fact that it makes a high pitch noise and could be heard all over the house (I don't believe it was faulty). Took it back for full refund and purchased another less powerful pump (also from Screwfix - different make) for a little more money and this is much better. The shower we have installed does not have a flow control (just temp) and the Salamander pump was too powerful as well. The new pump is 1.3 bar and the force of the water in the shower is now perfect for us."
