Salamander Pumps HomeBoost HB Booster Mains Water Boosting Pump 1.6bar is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a difference!! I have been contemplating getting one of these for some time. We had a pressure of 5/6 ltrs min, which made using the shower interesting if someone turned on a tap !. Fitted this to the main stopcock input and now have power shower pressure at ALL outlets. The noise comments on previous reviews was concerning, but without foundation. Yes, you can hear it - bit it is not intrusive. Its early days in terms of reliability, but all the signs are good !! Wouldn't hesitate in recommending it !

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of time In my opinion this pump is pointless. The reason being it works on the basis of flow rate, not pressure. I fitted this pump to the cold main at a customers house who had a combi boiler because they did not want their shower to be affected when someone else opened a tap. What actually happened is when one tap was open the machine would work really hard, then when 2 or 3 taps were open the pump would stop working. The reason for this is at the cold main the flow rate was 12L/min but at the 2 taps the flow rate was between 6-8L/min. If the pump was only supplying the combi the hot water only would be boosted which would make any mixer showers unbalanced because the cold supply would not be boosted if another tap was used while the shower is being used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pump We had a serious problem of shower pressure in one of the bedroom and our plumber suggested this product. After this was installed the low pressure problem of last 5-6 hours is solved. it is fitted in loft and so not so much noisy. Great product, highly recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from water regulations? as far as i know it is forbidden to put a pump on mains water supply in uk.. it causes problems for other houses using the supply and, in worse case scenario, can suck bad water from another location! and you cannot pump what is not there! there' s plenty of info here...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from salamander Home Boost Great purchase,I had problems with low water pressure on an unvented hot water(steel) cylinder, this solved the issue .a cinch to fit and came supplied with adapters for 22 and 15 mm pipes, a lot quieter than any shower pump ive had. I FINALLY got a power shower!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Low water pressure? Over the last few months my water pressure had been dropping more and more. After a neighbour had some underground pipe work done it dropped to the point where my shower would hardly function. Not being in the position of being able to spend a fortune getting new pipes laid by the water-board, I stumbled across this Salamander home boost pump after an internet search. After fitting new pipework from the main to a under the sink cupboard, I fitted the pump. My water pressure shot up when the pump kicked in and although it's not like having Niagara Falls throughout the house it does power the water through the pipes. Having said that it still falls a little short if the downstairs water is running and I'm taking a shower. All in all, it does the job, as long as you're sensible with your water use and don't expect waterfall speed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Salamander Pumps HomeBoost HB 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!!!
