Rated 1 out of 5 by from VERY NOISEY Plumber recommended we install this pump we sited it in a cupboard in the kitchen. the noise on start up was akin to a 747 jet taking off!! We relocated the pump to an outbuilding adjacent to the kitchen and still we found the noise unacceptable. the plumber is coming to remove the pump and I we are going to return it. We contacted Salamander pumps and they said the noise was normal after listening to to over the phone. If you don't want to hear a jet taking off every time you use a tap don't buy one of these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant I've spent tens of thousands in upgrades/renovations to my house and this is without a doubt the best purchase I made. We were getting a flow rate of 6-7l/min and shower was pretty rubbish. Now it is fantastic and we get 12l/min as advertised. It is a touch noisy but depends where your incoming mains supply is located whether that will be an issue for you. Fittings not supplied so make sure you pick those up separately, Salamander do a fittings pack to ensure you get the recommended items.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too loud It works, but this is described by the manufacturer as a quiet pump, and yet it produces a loud, high pitched sound. I has to turn if off because my neighbour complained about it !

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good pump but expensive to run Fitted one did the job well but recently discovered that turning pump off literally halved my electricity usage in the home. So with soaring energy costs low pressure it is! Lol

Unvented System

Will this work on a Unvented System
Asked by: Stephen1C

Can I connect this pump before water softner?

It is very difficult to find a place to install booster pump after water softner machine, can I connect this pump to the mains before the softner connection
Asked by: sojanjames2002
As there are different types of water softener we always suggest confirming with the softener manufacturer. Our preference is after the softener, this will ensure the pump is receiving the benefit of the softened water also there is no restriction from the softener which would reduce the benefit of the pump

Can these be switched off as and when needed

My electric bill has rocketed up since having one installed so just wondering if they can be switched off and back on when needed
Asked by: Bambs
Thank you for your query The pump can be switched off if not required, however we would not recommend do this on a regular basis as it may cause the pump to blow fuses , the pump has a 240v power supply so should not massively impact electric usage.

District heating

Can this be installed on the mains of a flat with district heating (no boiler)? Thanks
Asked by: Lorenzo94
Hi Lorenzo94. The HomeBoost is a cold water mains pump, it can be used on the cold water mains only. It will need to have its own dedicated feed and not a shared feed and will provide up to 12litres per minute. https://www.salamanderpumps.co.uk/uploads/downloads/Installation%20Guide/HB-CB-Installation-Guide-July2020%20(ONLINE).pdf

Is this the right model?

Purchased this and the one i received is in a black and copper case with a red logo - is this still the same thing as advertised?
