Salamander Pumps

Salamander Pumps

The core of a great showering experience is having the option to turn up the power of the water to the max and be completely and invigoratingly drenched if that’s what you want. In some houses, however, this takes teamwork. There’s only so much your shower can do on its own. That’s why Salamander Pumps is here to help.

Salamander Pumps

Water is something we often take for granted, turn on the tap and there it is.  Actually, getting a reliable supply of water to our house is quite a challenge and then there’s the issue of delivering to exactly where it’s needed.  Sometimes we can live with the water being delivered slowly, for example when a washing machine takes its time to fill.  Sometimes, however, the speed with which water is delivered can make a significant difference to our overall experience - like when you want a really good shower, or even when you just want to fill a bath at a reasonable speed.  The problem is that in many houses, including some fairly modern ones, the household water system is simply too low pressure to support modern appliances such as steam showers, hydro showers or whirlpool baths and replacing a household water supply can be a very expensive undertaking.  Fortunately, Salamander Pumps have developed a range of products to deliver your water right where it’s needed and at a suitable level of pressure.

Salamander Pumps offers three main types of pump to cover all needs.  ShowerBoost pumps are designed specifically to boost the power to one, specific shower.  They are particularly helpful when a house has a gravity-fed water system, which are notorious for their lack of pressure, exactly the opposite of what you need when showering.  BathroomBoost is also designed to work with gravity feed systems and gives you the power you need to enjoy a more powerful shower, such as a monsoon shower or a hydro shower or to enjoy the jets in a whirlpool bath.  HouseBoost is a highly unusual system in that it is one of the few pump systems which can legally operate with mains fed water supplies.  These are shared between multiple households and hence can often come under pressure at particular times of day, for example, in the mornings when many people are wanting to shower before work.

Like all products from legitimate manufacturers the warranty for them is carried and covered by that manufacturer - The duration of any warranty is advised on the items page. You should in all cases check the manufacturers page for further warranty terms as well as registering any warranty once an item has been received where applicable. 

 

How Do The Large Items Arrive?

LArge items are often supplied in a number of boxes (normally 3-5).  All boxes are able to pass through all standard doorways if the item is intended for indoor use. Care and thought should be given to if and how the boxes/contents will navigate stairwells. Often stairwells are narrow and have lower height regions, corners and banisters though the boxes that come will be able to be carried in homes unless there is a very unusual set up.

 

What Electric Connection Do The Steam Showers Require?

All of our Steam Showers require a single 13amp connection. Whirlpool showers, require 2 x 13amp.The shower should be connected via isolated fused spurs. If your mains board (consumer unit) has RCDs fitted, then REMOVE the ones fitted to the power cables of the shower. Must of our Hydro shower do not require an electrical connection, for those that have lights or radio etc, these units require 1 electrical connection. The hydro showers that do have electronics are transformed down to a safe 12volts. 

 

What Are The Water Pressure Requirements For The Showers?

Our showers require between 1 and 3 bar of pressure at the unit to operate. For optimum results 2-3 bar is recommended. Please note that all Steam Cabins require a flow rate of at least 14-16 litres per minute. The water supply to the unit must also be balanced.

If you have a combi boiler, this typically provides water at a pressure suitable for the shower, but if you are unsure, ask you plumber to check the pressure for you. If you have a Combination (combi) boilder, you WILL need a PEV. (Pressure Equalisation Valve)If you have gravity fed water, or you water pressure is not high enough, then you will need to fit a pump.

How Much Does It Cost to Run The Steam Function?

Based on current costs for electricity to operate the steam function for a recommended maximum of half and hour is around 30 pence. Compare this to the cost of visiting a Sauna in a Health Spa etc.
