How does a Single Impeller Shower Pump work?
In order for these single impeller shower pumps to work efficiently the water in the home needs to move in the direction of gravity (downward) to create a sufficient boost to your shower. The sensors within the shower pumps are activated by different sensors depending on whether the pump is a positive or negative head. These single impeller pumps react automatically when the shower valve opens and closes or another outlet such as a tap is opened or closed.
What Type of Single Impeller Shower Pumps are Available?
Positive Head Shower Pump
Positive head single impeller shower pumps feed water outlets such as shower heads and taps, which have a ‘positive’ location. In the case of your shower this means that your shower head is below the level of the cold water storage tank. The pump is activated by the gravity allowing the flow of water to reach the pump as the shower is turned on and then deactivated once the shower is turned off again.
We stock positive head single impeller shower pumps in a wide variety of pressures from some of the leading manufacturers in this market. Choose from a 1.0 bar to 4.0 bar depending on how much extra power you require for your shower and which pump will be compatible to your water system.
Negative Head Shower Pump
Negative head single impeller shower pumps feed water outlets (showers, taps etc) which are classed as having a ‘negative’ location. For your shower this means that the pump outlet (shower head) is level with or above the cold water storage tank. These negative head pumps are pressure sensitive and are activated when they detect a drop in pressure between the device and the pump. Once the flow of water is running it will continue pushing water to the outlet until the shower is turned off again.
