- What is a shower pump?
A shower pump is a relatively small device, which works to boost water pressure in your pipes by increasing the volume of water that is pumped through them. The effects of the shower pump will show through a strengthened water flow to make for an improved showering experience.
- Should I get a shower pump for my shower system?
If you’re finding showering more complicated than it needs to be due to low water pressure, it will be rather apparent that you’re in need of a shower pump. However, there also might be a case of you not fully realising how weak your water flow is. To check your water pressure, reach out to your water supplier or plumber. To test it yourself, grab a one-litre measuring jug and a stop watch, and then place your jug under the flow of water, timing how long it takes to fill the jug. If it takes longer than six seconds, you have a poor flow rate, which may be due to low water pressure. If such is the case, it is time to invest in a shower pump in order to transform your showering experience.
- What shower pump is right for my shower?
Our shower pumps are listed to detail their pressure rating, for example, 1.5 bar. This ranges from 1.5 bar to 4.0 bar, and the pressure rating that is needed will depend on the size of your shower head and how much pressure is needed. A 1.5 and 2 bar pressure is generally suited to low pressure showers, whilst 2.5 and above are typically required for power showers and large shower heads, where a large flow of water at a high pressure is needed. Some shower head also include body jets, which will require a particularly high water pressure.
- What is a negative head shower pump?
Most of our shower pumps feature a negative head shower pump, which is placed above a cold water tank and draws water from the tank to the force it towards the shower. They are used in homes that don’t have the room below the tank.
- Are shower pumps noisy?
Shower pumps work to improve water pressure for an invigorating shower, and could make for loud noise levels if not equipped with noise-reducing features. Many of our shower pumps are designed to limit noise with features that minimise turbulence within the pump head, or include silicon carbide seals and anti-vibration feet to keep noise levels low.
