    Default Recommend me a shower pump.....

    As above really, can someone recommend a shower pump for a better flow of water. It's only going to service one shower and will be sat beneath the bath.

    B&Q are doing one for £100 - is that a fair enough price? from what i remember it's a 2bar one.

    any help and advice welcome.

    £100 for a 2 bar (positive pressure if your header tank is in the loft) pump is not a bad price. I've just done a quick search and none are cheaper than that so far m8.

    Just a thought, are you pumping both hot and cold to a shower head or just the cold to an electric shower?

    funnily enough i was flicking through the screwfix catalogue last nigth and spotted the exact same one.

    i'm pumping hot and cold to a shower head, so will definitely need a twin pump.

    ditchp - i may need to pick your brains a little more on this, as you've had first hand experience with this pump.

    looks like i'll be swinging by screwfix this week.

    I'm upgrading our shower at the mo - does anyone know a way to gauge the mains pressure that is fed to my electric shower? I'm hoping there's something I can just screw onto the 15mm pipe to check (needs to be 1bar for my 10.8kW monstah!).

    As I can't fit a pump directly to the incoming mains feed, does anyone have any suggestions if the pressure isn't great enough? Would I be best taking a feed off the cold tank instead and fitting a pump to that?

    Have you considered fitting a power shower? I know they cost around £150 for a decent one, but then you don't have any additional wiring or piping to do once installed.

    I recently installed a Galaxy G2000LX & it works great, just needed 2 x T pieces & some plastic 15mm tubing, did the job myself in around 3 hours, & I'm no expert. Everything is then gravity feed, no hi pressures to worry about, the pump is built in to the unit.

    i did think about it, but the long term plan is to rent the house out when we move in to our next one (fingers crossed) - and having a power shower will be just another thing to go wrong and for me to have to sort out.

    likelihood is that students will be renting it as we are only a stones throw from brunel uni, so i don't want to spend a fortune only for it to get wrecked. the pump is the easiest solution for a powerful shower in this instance
