What pump would you recommend to run two showers? They will not be used at the same time. One in bathroom the other in en suite. Is a mixer shower the best type to buy if using a pump too? We have a gravity fed system with hot and cold tanks not a combi boiler. Any advice you could give is much appreciated.

The Showermate pumps in either size of 2.0 Bar or 2.6 Bar would be suitable for this usage. For additional pressure, it would be advisable to go for the 2.6 Bar Pump.

Hi. Thinking of fitting a pump and a new mixer shower from yourselves. The question I have is does the pump have to have a separate switch to turn it on or off or is it controlled by water flow. I currently have a gravity fed shower that is week at the best of times, is a pump a good option to boosting the pressure?

A pump would be a perfect option to increase your pressure. The pump works when you turn your tap on, it would kick start the Pump, and then pump the water into the Bath/Sink/Shower. In regards to instalation, please speak to a qualified plumber.

Historically, British water systems are generally connected to a cold water storage tank which is kept in the loft. These are known as "gravity fed systems" which are low pressure, and rely on the height of the tank to provide the water flow pressure for the house. Due to height restrictions imposed on where the tank can go, low pressure is a resulting factor - it can be as low as 0.1 bar.
For those who prefer power shower performance, it is necessary to pump a gravity fed system, or install a high pressure boiler or unvented system.
NOTE: Only low pressure gravity fed systems can be pumped, check with your installer that the cold water storage tank and hot water cylinder is big enough (the hot water may run out). The standard UK domestic tank is 225 litres, (this should be sufficient) but for larger homes a 450 litre tank is recommended. A 120 litre cylinder for hot water should be sufficient, but a larger home may require a 166 litre cylinder. Pumps must be fitted in accordance with current Water Regulations, and not be connected to the water mains, either directly or indirectly via a mains fed water heater.
The pumps work by pushing water rather than pulling it, and are situated as close to the water supply as possible. Therefore they are commonly fitted close to the hot water cylinder in the airing cupboard.
Our pumps are all "Twin Impeller Pumps" which are designed to boost the performance of two water supplies (hot and cold) to a fitting with separate flow controls. Whole house applications, one or two complete bathroom suites or a single mixer valve can have their performance boosted depending on the rating of the pump chosen. Note: Avoid pumping water to traditional WC systems with lever flush operation as this can reduce the lifespan
of the pump. The disadvantages of pumped systems are that there is an element of noise during operation, and also servicing issues need to be considered. However, for many homes that require power showering from a gravity fed system, they are the only solution without having to replace the full hot water system.
It is important that the correct pump is chosen to achieve the desired performance.
The following table can be used to identify which pump would be required to satisfy your installation.
|Pump Type Needed|
|Basic bathroom suite (basin / bath taps shower mixer taps)||*||*||*|
|2 Basic bathroom suites||*||*|
|Shower mixer valve - single spray pattern||*||*|
|Single shower mixer valve, up to 3 spray patterns||*||*|
|Single shower mixer valve, multi function (4 spray patterns)||*||*||*|
All of these shower pumps come with a manufacturer's 2 year guarantee.
PR50D and BP65D are booster pumps. If you wish for true continental power shower performance, we recommend the BP100D.
