Rated 2 out of 5 by from Works as expected but v.loud Installed by professional plumber. Works, normal running sound is loud, similar to a washing machine on fast spin. However while running, the pump occationally makes a very loud grinding sound, comparable to an angle grinder. There is no air in the pipes, installed as per instructions, flow and pressure is good, just the noise. Think i will be finding an alternative.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional product. Fitted quite easily, but doesn't come supplied with any fittings so please check and buy what you need before leaving Screwfix. The pump makes a massive difference to the water pressure on all outlets, I couldn't believe it to be honest, the pump is fitted under the kitchen sink and to be honest it isn't the quietest thing ever, but not too obtrusive. Gonna try the double check valve idea on it though as it does run on when the taps are closed. Great product.

Answer: 
The Stuart Turner Flomate unit can provide a flow of up to 12 litres per minute, at this point it is regulated in order to comply with water regulations.
Assuming the tap uses between 2 and 4 litres per minute the Flomate unit should still supply the shower with between 8 and 10 litres per minute which should provide a satisfactory shower, even when a tap is turned on.
