Rated 4 out of 5 by from Upgrades mains supply It delivers the minimum 12 litres per minute, if you have that at any point it does not come on. It is a bit noisy as it’s a pump, if you can fit it somewhere out the way then it is brilliant. I fitted it in an airing cupboard in a 4th floor flat and the customer was happy with it. Note: it does not come with the required pipe connections. You might want to order these when ordering the pump.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very Noisy It sounds like a jet engine starting up (ok not quite that loud) but loud enough to turn it off and accept reasonably low water pressure. There must be quieter systems out there.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Squeeling/leaking on 3rd pump This is my 3rd pump sent under warranty from salamander . and the 3rd one to make a squealing noise on start up then after 6 months develop a small leak internally and blow the fuse . I would not fit these for any customers .

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Oh my Installed this pump to give a boost to the whole house water flow rate, sounded ideal for what I wanted. What I didnt expect was the NOISE. This thing sounds like a jet engine starting up and then leaves you with a constant loud whine while it is running. I think I will have to resite it in the shower feed so it only runs when the shower is on.

Does it require a power supply?

Asked by: Daniyella

Fitting the pump

Why does the demonstration Video Show And Mention that the Pump comes complete with the necessary isolation Valve and fittings when there are none of these supplied in the box when sold?
Asked by: Gravham
Hi, apologies for the confusion, the HomeBoost is no longer supplied with the fittings kit as demoed in the video, but it can be purchased as an additional accessory from our website. I hope this helps answer you query, should you require further assistance regarding this matter please feel free to contact us on 01915162002 and a member of our Technical Support team can offer assistance.

Will this work with a standard mains 9kw electric shower

Current shower works but dismal water flow, and if someone flushes downstairs toilet it affects the shower. Can this be used safely with shower, assuming it is installed where the mains enters the property?
Asked by: AmishBoy

Will this boost the flow to max of 12L per min if you have mixer shower that already delivers approx 9L p/m flow? And can the booster be turned on and off to use only for the shower?

We only really need a boost for the shower, so we would probably like to simply turn it on when using the shower (to save electricity, keep noise down), so is it possible to run the Salamander only when you want to at shower times?
Asked by: Jozudave
Jozudave - The Homeboost will deliver upto 12 L/Min, the pump can be installed inline to boost water to the shower only, however non return valves may be required if water is drawn before the shower for other outlets. You can use our online pump selector tool also as we have other pumps in our range which may provide a suitable alternative should the Homeboost not be suitable ..https://www.salamanderpumps.co.uk/pump-selector.php

Will this pump work with an unvented system?

Unvented cylinder. Poor pressure, showers turn hot and cold, mornings especially. Large house with 5 bathrooms with at least 2 people taking a shower at the same time in the morning. Will this work with an unvented cylinder and will it resolve this issue?
Asked by: sasmjuk
12 L/minute water flow is reasonable for 1 shower but pretty poor for two simultaneously. Unvented cylinder... why fit one with such poor pressure? Are you sure its not a fault on the system? A reputable installer shouldn't be fitting £1000's of equipment when you dont have the water supply to use it in the first place. have you considered an accumulator? Your installer shold have known better.
