Shower pumps are installed in properties where water pressure is not sufficient to create a satisfying showering experience. The pump increases water pressure, leading to a more powerful stream of water from the shower. Shower pumps are fed from the cold water tank, not the mains water supply. Check our shower pump FAQ below for more details on exactly which pump is right for the job.

We have answered some of the most common questions about which type of shower pump you need below:
If you need to boost both the hot water and cold water supply separately then you need a twin impeller shower pump. If the hot and cold water supply are mixed, or you only need to boost one, then you need a single impeller shower pump.
Negative head pumps are used in systems where the shower pump is level with, or above, the cold water tank. This is often the case in bungalows, or properties with limited roof space.
Positive head pumps are gravity-fed, meaning they need to be installed at a height lower than the property’s cold water tank. This is typical in a standard multi-storey property where the water tank is in the loft.
