Rated 1 out of 5Â by Clarkean Don't purchase this pump
After just over 3 years of reliable service the pump has burnt out. As it happens only 4 months after the warranty expired. The previous model lasted 12 years. So my recommendation is to buy an alternative and spend a bit more on a better warranty

Rated 2 out of 5Â by boneyG Cheap for a reason.
Bought because of review of older type salamander pumps, thinking this pump would be the same. It is not.
Cheap plastic impellers, faulty flow switches and general weak overall design and quality.
Im now on my 3rd pump in as many weeks.
1st pump worked once. Flow switch issue which meant the pump would not turn off....
2nd pump (took back to screw fix for instant replacement), leaked from impeller casing after just a couple of weeks.
Now on 3rd pump, but i have my doubts.......obviously,
My pump has been installed by a registered plumber, including the salamander s flange to prevent air being drawn in from the vent. Pump is at base of cylinder and less than 2m away from shower etc etc.
My advise would be to spend Â£50 more and get the older salamander pumps (green), or buy a STUART TURNER pump. ST pumps also do a budget range whoch are far superior to the salamander.
Just to note: screwfix customer service is spot on, quick replacements of pumps.

I bought this as a direct replacement for a failed pump of the same type. The flexible slip-on connectors make it extremely easy to fit and I am delighted with the result

Bought this pump to replace a 4 year old shower pump that burnt out. Installation was simple as pipework was already there, but it is no big deal to install anyway. The pump is quieter than the unit it replaced and so far it is working well with no problems. On balance, it seems a good twin impeller pump for a single shower application.
