Salamander Pumps HomeBoost HB Booster Mains Water Boosting Pump 1.6bar is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good little pump. Bought on recommendation. Easy install once you follow the instructions. Fittings don't come with the pump so i purchased the fitting kit also. It was useful as I needed to downsize to 1/2" pipe. Only downside is that it takes a 10 seconds or so to get up to full pressure. I presume this is the "brain" in the pump assessing the water pressure and then applying the pumping force required.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NOT suitable for Dublin This does not follow suit to regulations set out by d.c.c in dublin Ireland, no pump should be installed directly on the mains and furthermore no combi boiler should be directly fed by mains water

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it says - perfectly. Installed for a client with low pressure off a group water scheme. Worked perfectly and solved the problem of poor shower pressure upstairs. Resolved small issue of pressure reduction when kitchen tap was used at the same time as the shower by reducing flow out of the sink tap with the penny valve, this effectively balanced the system. Its a pump - it makes a noise but its not intrusive. Supported weight with metal strap. Wouldnt hesitate to use it again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy As we have pretty poor water pressure here circa 6l per min I was looking for a pump to improve the pressure on our Combi shower. After some research and googling I purchased the Salamander IBoost pump. Very happy with pump so far and its nice and quiet and shower is now performing as it should, lovely. Time will tell just how reliable it is and for the high cost I would expect it to last many years. I had read it could be installed in an hour but as it didn't come with any fittings and I'm not a plumber I spent best part of a day trying to get the connections a real pain, please consider including them or at least the pump connections anyway. First time using Screwfix and part arrived very quickly so I'll definitely use them again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good performance Happy with the pump performance. One of the pump connections was faulty. Had issue tightening. The thread was too tight so had problem sealing the joint.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Salamander home boost pump I bought this to replace previous failed unit as there is no refurbishment service available

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... http://community.screwfix.com/threads/is-it-possible-allowable-to-pump-water-directly-from-the-mains.128393/
