Rated 5 out of 5 by from Booster pump Easy to fit and because it was replacing an existing Salamander pump the whole job took less than a minute.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Salamander in the loft This value shower pump did just the job for not a lot of money. Restored a decent pressure to a thermostatic shower for our clients, they were delighted. Pump is relatively quiet, easy to fit, no nonsense, mounted in the loft it has made shower time a very positive experience.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from CT55xtra Easy to fit, shame about the after sales, 18 months and failed. Not covered under warranty due to being too far from dhw tank. Service kit is over 50% of the pump cost. Not happy!!

Kitchen sink

Can this pump be used under a kitchen sink to boost tank fed hot water through a mixer tap with mains fed cold water?
Asked by: TrevMK
Unfortunately this pump would not be suitable if pumping hot water against cold mains at a mixer tap. We would recommend the single negative head pumps such as the ESP80cpv or the CTforce20su. Please call our Technical Support team on 01915162002 if you require further information.

activation level

What is the minimum presuure needed to activate this pump when the flow is opened?
Asked by: Grae11

Pump power switching.

Does this kind of pump need a seperate pullcord switch, or does it have an auto-start system with flow/pressure actuation?
Asked by: NickMac
Dear Customer, The CT55+Xtra is a positive head pump and is activated from a flow switch and needs 2 litres per minute natural flow to come through the outlet to be able to lift the floats and activate the pump. If you are going against the mains, ( in a mixer, Tap, Shower) going to an electrical appliance you would need to use a negative head pump instead. Kind regards

Iam unsure if I need a positive or negative head pump .

My hot water cylinder is on ground floor fed by tank in the loft , I wish to improve the flow to bathroom basin tap ( first floor ) kitchen & basin tap ( ground floor ) Many thanks
Asked by: RJBell
Good morning, To determine if your system is positive or negative, it is best to carry out a flow test. Turn the power off to the pump and from the shower head (in its normal position) check that you are receiving the following flow rates as these are needed to activate a positive head pump. Using a measuring jug……. Turn shower to cold only – Need to be receiving 1 litre within 30 seconds Turn shower to hot only - Need to be receiving 1 litre within 30 seconds Turn shower to mixed – Need to be receiving 2 litres within 30 seconds If you are not receiving all three of the above flow rates or if you are unable to carry out this test, we would have recommend that you use a negative head pump. Kind Regards Tracey

I have a standard Gas boiler hot water system, Hot water tank in the airing cupboard, fed from a cold water tank in the loft of my bungalow. Would this pump or type of pump be suitable to improve my shower water pressure?

Asked by: rated
Dear Customer, Unfortunately the CT55+Xtra being a positive head single impellor pump is only suitable for a single outlet, if you are looking to supply a shower if you are only pumping hot and the cold is on mains you would need a single impellor negative head pump with the pressure matched to the mains pressure. or if you are looking to pump hot and cold this would need a twin impellor pump and to be able to specify the correct model we would need to talk through the planned installation in more detail, to do this could you please call our technical team on 0191 516 2002 and we will be happy to help. Kind regard
