Help is at Hand to Choose the Right Pump

bathroom towels
Updating your kitchen and bathroom or renovating a whole house can be an exciting time, but there’s lots to think about before you get to the bit we all love – choosing your beautiful fittings, fancy tiles and fluffy towels.

Making sure you’ve got decent water pressure may not be the glamorous end of home improvement but it’s vital if you want to avoid any shocking shower scenarios or bathroom bloopers.

How annoying would it be to go through all the hassle and spend hundreds or even thousands of pounds, if at the end of it all you’re still putting up with a trickle of water from the shower, or waiting half an hour for your gorgeous new bath to fill with water?

Water pressure problems are a pain in the pipes, but there are lots of simple ways to solve them, from checking for damaged pipes and making sure valves are fully open, to cleaning any mineral deposits from taps and shower heads.

If the simple things don’t work and you need more advice, try websites such as, which can help you diagnose the problem and decide on the right solution.

You may well find that installing a pump is the answer to your water woes.

We know a thing or two about water pumps and we’re good listeners, so when our customers told us that we had such a wide range of clever shower, bathroom and whole house pumps it was hard to choose the right model, we got to work overhauling it to make easier for them.

The upshot is that we’ve re-engineered our popular centrifugal range and launched it under the new Right Pump label.

If you’re a person who likes all the technical info, that means we’ve reduced noise; used crossover technology to allow the former RSP ‘shower only’ pumps to power the whole house; and included a ‘spiders’ web’ design to strengthen the plastic end caps for extra strength, rigidity and reliability.

We’ve also improved the electronic system protection which guards the pump against the three most common faults which cause damage to pumps – dry running, excessive heat and leaks in the system.

So not only are you getting more pump for your money, you’re getting the confidence that your pump will be quiet, smart, strong and reliable.

Good water pressure is essential to domestic life, so before you start dreaming of beautiful bathrooms or steamy hot showers, give a thought to the unsung hero that is the water pressure level in your home, and browse the Right Pump range at Salamander Pumps now.

Introducing the CT Bathroom from Salamander Pumps

Salamander pumps are one of the most respected brands on the market today, with their products renowned for quality and performance alike. The company’s highly successful CT range of pumps has now been expanded with the addition of a new bathroom pump.

CT Bathroom from Salamander Pumps


The CT range of pumps includes some of the finest models in Salamander’s current offering. Existing models in the CT series include the CT Xtra family and the CT Force range of ultra-powerful pumps. The CT Bathroom is the latest addition to this highly successful series, specially designed for domestic and small-scale commercial bathroom applications. It boasts higher pressure outputs and performance fine-tuned for the needs of a bathroom setting. The CT Bathroom pumps are capable of boosting hot and cold water supplies separately or at the same time, using unique crossover technology to prevent the overheating problems that can arise in other pumps when hot and cold sides are active separately.

CT Bathroom pumps are quiet, energy-efficient and highly effective. They are suitable for just about any bathroom application you might have in mind. Showers, bathroom sinks and lavatories all fall within the domain of Salamander’s latest CT pumps. These pumps will prove useful when water pressure has to be boosted to accommodate multiple or high-performance outlets, or when other factors have caused water pressure to drop before it reaches the bathroom.

Salamander now produces several variants of the CT Bathroom range, including the CT60 Bathroom and the higher-specification CT80 Bathroom. Both of these pumps also come in a universal variant, which is perfect for negative head applications.

Salamander Home Boost Product Update

With over 20 years’ experience, Salamander’s trusted pumps are made from the highest quality components, the vast majority of which are sourced in the UK. 

Salamander Home Boost

Salamander pumps offer a great solution if you are experiencing poor water pressure or flow at home, where an easy-to-install and cost-effective pump can solve any water pressure problems you may be encountering. This means, no more sluggish performing showers, baths that take a long time to fill or combi-boilers working on go-slow – just high-powered water pressure and flow, as and when you need it.

Salamander is continually looking at ways to improve its already high-performing pumps. With innovation is at the heart of the brand’s ethos, with ease of use and installation also key considerations.

Most recently, Salamander has made a number of changes to its popular Home Boost pump, to enhance the quality of the product to an even elevated level. Through a range of components, the pump is now much easier to install than ever before, making it arguably the UK’s easiest fit shower pump unit

Home Boost is usually connected to 22mm pipe work, which can be fitted using standard nut and olive compression fittings. Salamander appreciates that not all customers have this standard size of pipe work, so it has now made it much easier to install for pipes of different sizes.

For 15mm pipes, for instance, the Home Boost kit comes complete with two reducing sets that can connect the pump to the smaller bore pipe. A set of two 3/4″ tap connectors come with the reducing sets to further increase the ease at which the pump can be installed.

Getting hold of supplies for non-standard fittings is not always that easy for customers, so the news that Salamander is including these items with the kit is positive news. Not only does it mean customers can save time and any inconvenience caused, but they can also make savings.

One of the key features of the Salamander Home Boost pump is how quiet it is. It has already been officially recognised as one of the quietest pumps on the market, and duly awarded with the Quiet Mark from the UK Noise Abatement Society. Read more about the Salamander achieving this award in our latest blog post here.

To further boost the quietness of the pump, Salamander has been working hard to create further improved electronics of the system, to boost better noise quality. This has been achieved through the use of sensor-less motor technology, which has the capability of changing the way that the electronics communicate to the motor, further enhancing noise reduction from the pump.
As one of the most trusted, UK brands of pumps, these new Home Boost features now make the product even more desirable than before.

Salamander Homeboost Awarded Quiet Mark

We’ve covered the issue of noisy shower pumps numerous times here on the Anchor Pumps blog, therefore we were happy to hear the news from Salamander, that their Homeboost products have received the prestigious “Quiet Mark” award!

Salamander Homeboost products received the international award from the UK NAS, which is awarded to products after independent testing proves the product to be one of the quietest in its class!

The principle was a reduction in water turbulence – if this effect is reduced as water flows through the pump, there will be less vibration. The solution for Salamander was to re-design their products, replacing the metal ends of the motor with a polymer which dampened down the vibrations. The result is a booster pump that generates less noise than the average domestic boiling kettle.

That’s why Salamander Pumps deserves its international award for the quietest of Homeboost pumps, creating a new consumer demand for quieter pumps — something many householders thought was impossible.

There are added benefits to this technology. As well as reducing the water turbulence, the new and improved Salamander design has produced an even better showering experience, proven to dampen down the vibrations and also control all thermal transfer, to avoid sporadic changes in water temperature when showering.

Available from £275 + VAT from Anchor Pumps, the Salamander Homeboost also includes 3 years warranty, free delivery and price match guarantee – and if this wasn’t enough, Anchor Pumps are now also offering £15 cash back on all Salamander Pumps!
Designed to boost low mains water pressure into a domestic house, the Salamander Homeboost is the extremely popular option to help improve low water flow from the mains supply at peak demand times.

This pump also complies with all Water Fitting Regulations and is very energy-efficient, as well as costing significantly less to run than home booster pump of similar power!
