Showers are much more pleasant and invigorating when they benefit from decent water pressure, and this usually necessitates a shower pump. However, in some cases this solves the problem of low pressure while creating a new problem of noise. If you are struggling with a noisy shower pump, there are a number of things to consider…
The Quietest Pump Models
In our opinion, there are three shower pump models that stand out for their combination of high performance and low noise levels:
• The Stuart Turner Monsoon Range is another pump that stands out for its excellent performance and low noise. Stuart Turner use low voltage, brass bodied pumps with anti-vibration feet to guarantee minimal noise.
• The Salamander CT Force Range is one of the quietest pumps on the market. Salamander has a reputation for producing quiet pumps in general, but this particular model includes noise vibration reduction technology.
• The Grundfos Amazon Range represents probably the quietest of the Grundfos pump range. Grundfos pumps are known for their performance and reliability, and the Amazon range of pumps uses both low-noise motors and anti-vibration feet to deliver minimal noise output.
Other Noise Reducing Methods
While it is difficult to reduce the amount of noise a shower pump makes without exchanging it for a quieter model altogether, there are a few steps you can take. For instance, you might want to place the pump on to a concrete block or specialist noise-reducing mounting pad. This will help to reduce and absorb vibrations, minimising noise.
It is also often worth checking the pipes surrounding a pump and ensuring they are well supported and completely secure. This can help reduce vibrations in the pipework, which can also be caused by noisy shower pumps.
