Shower Pumps

With the fabulous range of showers on the current market there is nothing worse than poor shower performance. It is useless having a top of the range shower if your home doesn’t have the necessary water pressure to match it. Shower pumps help boost the water pressure coming from your homes mains water supply so that you get that fantastic shower experience that you crave. These shower pumps help to maintain water pressure by pumping water to the shower head which is especially useful in areas that water pressure is lacking. By pumping the water at a higher pressure shower pumps (and house pumps) help to keep your bathroom working to its optimum capacity and provide showers full of power.

Contemporary showers require a higher operating pressure than your water supply might offer and therefore the addition of a shower pump will be extremely valuable. Water pressure can vary in urban and rural areas and also depending on whether your house is located on flat or higher ground. When choosing the correct shower pump for your home it is important that you make sure that your homes water system will be compatible with a shower pump. At Bella Bathrooms our range of shower pumps help boost the water pressure in your home and are available from the leading manufacturers in the shower pump market.

What Types of Shower Pumps are Available?

Single Impeller Shower Pumps

This type of shower pump is designed to pump only one type of water to your shower; either hot, cold or a mixture of the two and helps to overcome low mains pressure. In some homes it can be more practical to have a pair of these pumps rather than a twin pump. If the cold water tank and hot water cylinder are not located near to each other in your home it is more efficient to have a pump for each of the hot and cold water supplies.

Twin Impeller Shower Pumps

This shower pump is designed to pump both hot and cold water supplies which work particularly well with mixer showers. They can pump hot or cold water either individually or at the same time making them perfect for mixer showers as they produce an even pressure. Twin pumps tend to be positioned at the base of the hot water cylinder to push water to bathroom devices such as showers or baths. This pump can be used to feed multiple showers at the same time depending on the BAR rating of the pump.

House Pumps

We stock a huge range of house pumps with differing sizes and power which is dependent on the specific homes need. House pumps are designed to pump cold and hot water separately when needed in the home. They help to improve the performance of both hot and cold water for the entire households’ demands like baths, taps and toilets etc when only hot or cold are needed at any one time.

What Shower Pump do I Need?

Choosing the bathroom suite, the tiles and the furniture can all be very exciting – but don’t forget about the most crucial part of a bathroom; the plumbing. It can be slightly more tedious and confusing than choosing the bathroom décor, but to create the perfect bathroom you need a fully functional shower.

Many people choose to boost the water supply to their shower to create a more powerful showering experience to rejuvenate the body and senses. This is done by installing a shower pump. When it comes to shower pumps there a few different options and you want to make sure you purchase the right one for your home. It’s not really about making a style decision; there are different pumps for different showers and water pressures so you need to know the necessary information about your house:

• The layout of the house: where the cold water storage tank is located

• Location of the shower: is it above or below the cold water storage

• The temperature of the water: do you need to boost the hot water or cold or both coming through the shower? Is your water supply balanced?

People living in urban and rural areas may experience different water pressure, and if you live on a hill it will also be different to those who live on flat ground. Also, most shower pumps are designed to be fitted onto open vented hot and cold systems, so if you have a combi boiler system you can only use a mains boost pump. If you have separate hot and cold water systems then here is everything you need to know:

Positive or Negative Head

A positive and negative head simply refers to where the shower is in relation to the cold water storage tank. This cold water is usually reserved in the roof or top floor of the house but you need to check. If the shower is located below the tank such as a ground floor bathroom, you will need a positive head shower pump. This type of pump relies on a gravity feed of water to kick start the pump and increase the flow. If the show is situated on the same level as the cold water storage, or indeed above the tank in a loft conversion, you will need a negative head shower pump. This kind of pump will suck the water upwards to operate the shower.

If you have two separate showers above and below the cold water storage, a negative head shower pump is the best choice.

Twin or Single Impeller

A twin pump is installed onto both water supplies, hot and cold separately; a single pump can only be installed onto a single supply. A twin shower pump is the best way to ensure that both hot and cold water is boosted to find the ideal temperature when showering. Single shower pumps can be used if only the hot water supply needs a boost, or to a premixed water supply. If you have difficulties installing a twin impeller shower pump, you could also install two single impeller pumps instead.
