Salamander Pumps HomeBoost HB Booster Mains Water Boosting Pump 1.6 is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from water regulations? as far as i know it is forbidden to put a pump on mains water supply in uk.. it causes problems for other houses using the supply and, in worse case scenario, can suck bad water from another location! and you cannot pump what is not there! there' s plenty of info here...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from salamander Home Boost Great purchase,I had problems with low water pressure on an unvented hot water(steel) cylinder, this solved the issue .a cinch to fit and came supplied with adapters for 22 and 15 mm pipes, a lot quieter than any shower pump ive had. I FINALLY got a power shower!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Low water pressure? Over the last few months my water pressure had been dropping more and more. After a neighbour had some underground pipe work done it dropped to the point where my shower would hardly function. Not being in the position of being able to spend a fortune getting new pipes laid by the water-board, I stumbled across this Salamander home boost pump after an internet search. After fitting new pipework from the main to a under the sink cupboard, I fitted the pump. My water pressure shot up when the pump kicked in and although it's not like having Niagara Falls throughout the house it does power the water through the pipes. Having said that it still falls a little short if the downstairs water is running and I'm taking a shower. All in all, it does the job, as long as you're sensible with your water use and don't expect waterfall speed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Salamander Pumps HomeBoost HB Fitted 2 days ago. nearly doubled water flow, a little noisy as fitted near stop cock in dining room, but well worth the inconvenience. A bit expensive but having had very poor water flow we can now have an electric shower and actually enjoy it even when another tap is turned on in the house!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What Cost? These pumps are fine but what cost are they to your neighbours? The water has to come from somewhere and these pumps draw pressure down from immediate properties.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fantastic pump!!! Outstanding good value pump which comes with fittings which is a bonus! I can now have a decent shower before work on a morning now! We would recommend this pump to boost your mains pressure, really did the trick here and very quiet too. 10/10

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good shower at last !! Got this because I was fed up with weak shower and combi cutting out. Went to a Salamander home boost road show, very impressed. This has definitely sorted it, shower is so much better! Cons:- It doesn't come with (and you are not told) with fittings for 15mm pipe work, so off you go to screwfix (this was really annoying ) All plumbed in & flushed...Didn't work!!! so off you go to screwfix AGAIN!! for replacement. All sorted. it seems a bit pricey but with a two year guarantee it should realize it's value Doesn't seem quite as quiet as made out, but soon blends in background

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Reliable Pump Installed this pump in a basement of a 2 storey flat to supply a few bathrooms, toilets & kitchens. It's quiet powerful and did the trick. As long as you install it correctly, it will do what it says on the box. Opened multiple taps but it still supplied enough pressure to accommodate this. Would recommend this pump to boost your mains pressure.
