    Stuart Turner monsoon are very good. But the location of the pump makes a huge difference as do the input pipe size. Has yours been correctly installed? I had Stuart turner in my old house and the clueless idiot who installed it completely ignored the requirement to be close to the hot water tank, so it basically cavities regularly and needs to be bled. Nothing to do with the pump and everything to do with the installation.

    After 3 in 5yrs I would think there is something wrong with the installation.

    Our Homeboost has done 5 years or more, no issues at all.

    Surprised really as we are in a hard water area.
