Rated 4 out of 5 by Low water pressure? Over the last few months my water pressure had been dropping more and more. After a neighbour had some underground pipe work done it dropped to the point where my shower would hardly function. Not being in the position of being able to spend a fortune getting new pipes laid by the water-board, I stumbled across this Salamander home boost pump after an internet search. After fitting new pipework from the main to a under the sink cupboard, I fitted the pump. My water pressure shot up when the pump kicked in and although it's not like having Niagara Falls throughout the house it does power the water through the pipes. Having said that it still falls a little short if the downstairs water is running and I'm taking a shower. All in all, it does the job, as long as you're sensible with your water use and don't expect waterfall speed. 13 Apr 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Salamander Pumps HomeBoost HB Fitted 2 days ago. nearly doubled water flow, a little noisy as fitted near stop cock in dining room, but well worth the inconvenience. A bit expensive but having had very poor water flow we can now have an electric shower and actually enjoy it even when another tap is turned on in the house!!! 23 Mar 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by What Cost? These pumps are fine but what cost are they to your neighbours? The water has to come from somewhere and these pumps draw pressure down from immediate properties. 13 Mar 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by fantastic pump!!! Outstanding good value pump which comes with fittings which is a bonus! I can now have a decent shower before work on a morning now! We would recommend this pump to boost your mains pressure, really did the trick here and very quiet too. 10/10 2 Dec 2014

The Homeboost is a WRAS approved pump designed specifically for mains pressure operation. Mains water is a little different to stored tank water so we only recommend it is used on the incoming main.

If you have an electric shower and a tank then you have a lot more options available to you !

I would recommend using the ESP55CPV in this system which will deliver 1.5 bar to the shower, make sure the pump installation guide is following as it's really important for the operation of the pump! If you do get stuck then you can always give our technical team a call on 0191 516 2002 where we will be happy to help!
