Rated 4 out of 5 by A working shower! I bought and fitted this pump to turn a miserable dribbling shower into a fully functional one. Now the flow is even and quite powerful, though not what you'd call a power shower. My only reservation is the rather too short connection hoses, as they make the pipework a little fiddly. 3 May 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by replacement pump Ive fitted two pumps on different jobs now, nice quiet pump for the money both customers have been pleased with the performance.I have rated reliability as good because of past experience with salamander pumps these pumps are quite new so time will tell but as a rule their customer service is good. 17 Feb 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not as good as the old type Have fitted a lot of the CT50+ pumps over a 12 year period. Never been called back so my favourite pump to fit. This was the first one of these I've fitted and 10 months later it has become intermittent. Solution not found yet but very unimpressed that I need to go back and repair/refit. 18 Jan 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent My old Salamander pump was at the end of its life. This is the newer version which was straight forward to fit (some modification of inlet pipework required due to inlets now being on the top rather than side). Operates more quietly than the old one - barely noticeable when the airing cupboard door is shut. One of the better priced pumps especially with the sale discount. Can't comment on reliability at this stage but if it lasts as long as the old one... 12 Jan 2016

Answer: 
The CT50xtra pump is a gravity fed pump for both hot and cold sides. The seals in this pump would not cope with mains cold water pressure, the only pump we have that can be used directly on the mains would be the Home boost. The cold supply to the CT50xtra must be tank fed with a dedicated feed.

If you want to pump the hot water only against a cold mains we would advise a single universal pump e.g. the ESP80.

Answer: 
There are two types of shower pumps, regenerative and centrifugal. The main difference between the two is the way the water is forced around the pump in order to increase the pressure. With a regenerative pump the water is forced around a housing using a 'toothed' wheel called an impeller. The water then hits a water block which forces the water from the housing. Centrifugal pumps use a different impeller and centrifugal force.

Answer: 
The CT50+ Xtra can only be used to pump a single shower not a whole house. The only product we have that can be fitted to the incoming mains is Homeboost, which can raise the flow up to 12 litres per minute.
