Super shower power
2 Aug 2014
By CombiFix
, Bolton
"This is one truly low noise power shower, fitted it in the loft and can't hear it at all in the en-suite directly below it., 50 gallon tanks a must for this flow rate of up to 40L/pm or it's a quick shower."

"This is a very good quiet pump and easy to fit. I have had two of these in my own house for several years and haven't had any problems. Much better than my old pumps which could be heard allover the house."

Showering again
12 Jun 2014
By Macca1950
, Kent
"After eight years our old shower packed up,
I then hit the internet to review what choice of showers are out there and of course the cost.
After the best part of a day trawling through all the reviews I decided the Salamander RSP50 Twin would suit just fine. Because it was a Saturday afternoon I then looked for somewhere that was open and had one in stock, eureka the old faithful Screw fix was at the end of a phone line had one in stock at a fair price, and was only up the road.
After picking it up it was just a couple of hours fitting it ( most of the time spent clearing out the airing cupboard ). It works great a powerful stream of water, and very quite in operation.
Allthough recently fitted the three year guarantee gives peace of mind.
I am not a plumber, and hopes this helps you decide.

excellent shower pump
27 Oct 2013
By Yorkshireman
, Tamworth
"We already have an en suite shower which is gravity fed. We wanted a shower installing over the bath and had a plumber in to install. He recommended fitting this pump as the new shower was coming off the same feed as the existing and the pump would boost the supply to both. What a difference it has made to the pressure, very pleased with the result."

Absolutely Fantastic
20 Jul 2012
By Matlockman
, Matlock, Derbyshire
"We have two Mira Excel shower units (one in the ensuite delivering 2.14 litres/min and one in the main bathroom producing a dribble of 1.67 litres/min) - both fed from a cold water storage tank providing a mere 950mm head (you can only crawl in our low roofspace).
I fitted an Essex flange to the side of the hot water cylinder and connected the pipework to the new Salamder pump (located alongside the base of the HWS cylinder).
The new flow rates increased by 264% in the ensuite and by a staggering 342% in the main bathroom - an unbelievable result from a wonderful pump.
Please note that with the RSP pump it dosen't matter which side you choose for the hot and cold inlets and outlets.

Good Pump
23 Apr 2012
By SeanTC
, Stroud
"I bought a new build house 5 years ago and the builders installed 2 Showermate Pumps feeding 2 showers. After 2 and half years the pump that powered the main use shower packed in, shortly followed 6 months later the pump on the other bathroom. I replaced the 1st pump with a Mira own branded one and it is very good reduced noise etc..
I let the other shower run through gravity as it wasn't in demand much but recently upgraded it with the Salamander pump. I am very impressed - it is even quieter than the Mira branded pump at half the cost and was very simply to install with JG Speedfit pipes.

Super pump
30 Aug 2011
By montofri
, Cardiff
"What a fantastic unit. I'm amazed how quiet it is. I've put it under the hot water tank in the airing cupboard. Lots of pre-installation advice from Salamander and I've installed a Salamander cold water cut-off float rather than double the size of the cold water storage. The individual stop valves are also a great idea."

Superb if fitted correctly
26 Aug 2011
By Philip
, Bradford
"I'm about to buy another of these pumps.
Please don't be put off by the 2 or 3 bad reviews above, as a plumber I'm often called to diy installs that have 'poor pump performance' and its ALWAYS due to them being fitted incorectly. Pumps in wrong location no dedicated feeds, no anti gravity loop (if needed), restrictive ballofix valves, pump miles from clyinder, blocked showerhead, restrictive or twisted shower hose. You need to have a minimum flowrate or the pump wont even start.
I even went to one where a guy had simply cut the pipe at the top of the cylinder (feeds hot water to all outlets) and just fitted the pump in series, granted it was a single impeller pump but he was adamant the pump was at fault and the reson for his dissapointing shower.
I've never been called back to any leaking shaft seals. Although I did once have one with failed flow switches after a couple of weeks, (jammed on), Salamander sent a replacement with no fuss."

Fantastic Shower Pump
19 Mar 2010
By JMCC

"Nice and easy to fit, comes with short push fit connectors, beware that the heights will not match (ends are shorter than the top connectors) and push fits are easily removed. Very quiet running, comes with foam feet and fitted plug.
Decent power output.

Pumps two showers without fuss
7 Aug 2009
By Jinlye
, Shropshire
"Can't speak highly enough of this little unit.
The pressure is just right - plenty for a satisfying shower, but without the daft stinging power of a 3 bar pump that bounces spray off the far walls and empties your hot water tank in no time at all.
And yes, it really does supply two showers simultaneously without a fuss. I use this in the airing cupboard to power the shower in the nearby family bathroom and the shower in the en-suite at the end of the house, and honestly if you are in the one shower and someone turns on the other one the difference is barely perceptible - it really does supply two satisfying showers at the same time.
The instructions with it are good. Note that Salamander say (and they seem to know a thing or two about good pumps) that the ideal location for the pump is as close as possible to your hot water tank horizontally, and significantly below the top of it vertically.
Note that it is not as whisper quiet as some people are suggesting (maybe they were used to a much nosier pump - my previous one screamed). The noise is a nice strong induction motor strong whirr - not offensive, but you will hear it."

good performance & good value

"This is an ideal pump for a single shower. Just enough pressure and does not use too much water. Salamander are very helpful if you need advice.
TIP - standing the pump on a piece of concrete slab will help to reduce any vibration transfer."

Easy to fit and use
9 Feb 2009
By Budgieman
, East Anglia
"I've had mine around a month now. The 15mm push fit connections are a doddle to use. I've fitted mine in the airing cupboard which is directly below the header tank. I then go back into the loft along the floor and down into the bathroom. Without fitting a one way valve the system works great with 300mm of head from the up and over pipes in the loft and the bottom of the header tank. ***Make sure you flush the new pipe work of debris before fitting the pump *** The pressure from this is more than adequate for a single shower. No need to spend any more than this as far as i can see."

"Ideal pump for single shower applications - boosts pressure to reasonable levels for most applications, but without using too much water. Very easy to install - recommended."
