Rated 5 out of 5 by Does what is says Pump was easy to install. But if it does break down, do not remove the end covers to check for residue in the flow valve as that will invalidate your warranty. 26 Jul 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Salamander ct55+ Great brand, great product, great price, easy to fit easy instructions, extra fittings inside bow of 2 flexible connectors fitted in minutes. 6 Jun 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quick & Simple The pump feels solid when you first pull it out of the box, instructions are easy to understand. The installation was pain free with the push fittings and was up and running in know time Fairly quite and very compact if you are tight for space 26 Apr 2016
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

Also, the bath in a separate bathroom is very weak and slow to fill, would this work for a bath too?

It's a little difficult from your question to work out what type of hot water system you have as you mention both gravity fed and combi.

The CT55 wouldn’t be suitable for a combi system. For that type of system we would advise either to increase the flow of water via a cold water storage tank to an ESP55 to the combi, or a Home boost increasing the mains to the combi up to the 12/m.

We can give you more advice on which of our pumps would be suitable if you want to give us a call on 0191 516 2002.

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.
