Rated 1 out of 5 by Terrbile, REALLY terrible pump Lasted all of a couple of months. Wasnt much use when it was actually working either, barely much difference in shower flow to before I had it fitted (by a registered plumber). WISH id bought a twin version. Single is (in my house) utterly useless and a waste of money. Its doesnt even sense the hot flow at all now, and doesnt switch on. Yes i could return this useless item for a refund, but it means I have to pay the plumber AGAIN to come out and remove this junk, then get a replacement the SAME DAY and then have him fit the new one and fit the supply too. Quite frankly ive wasted enough money on this useless pump and paying for it to be fitted only for it not to work. Save yourself a lot of wasted time and money and buy a twin pump to start with, and certainly NOT a Salamander. 30 Nov 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by life saver awesome little pump shower went for a trickle to a monsoon ,very quite and next to no vibration, plus very easy to fit. 19 Nov 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Shower Pump Excellent pump easy to install comes with fitted plug, turned a very poor thermostatic shower with no hot pressure into the best power shower!!! for a vey reasonable price 3 Nov 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Quality Pump Sturdy construction and quiet operation - even attractive to look at (for a pump!) No issues with reliability yet but, obviously,only just purchased. 31 Oct 2015

Unfortunately you wouldn’t be able to use the CT55+Xtra as this is a positive head pump and requires a natural flow rate of 2 litres per minute which you wouldn’t be able to achieve through an electric shower and due to this the pump would either pulse on and off, or it wouldn’t come on at all.

You could instead use a ESP80 which is negative head and activates on a pressure drop so as soon as you call for water the pump will come on and force the water through.

The ESP80 is 2.4 bar which is an average mains pressure and is enough to power a electric shower with a standard sized head.

Please get back in contact if you need any further guidance.
