    I am going to install the above pump into my property, fed up with no pressure upstairs. It looks a pain. I have drawn out most of the plumbing system so I know what goes where. Has anyone any advice on this installation?

    I presume this does not affect the central heating side of things but would be interested to know if it changes pressure across the CH system!

    Yes good question. I sort of through that in as I was thumbing through the pipe work around my feet. I wanted to make sure I get a good solid installation without any faults popping up on the pump.

    I fitted the Salamander ESP. Make sure you fit it on a solid base to cut the noise. The heavier the better. If you have sufficient space then a heavy concrete block would be ideal. Make sure you read the instructions properly and fit a surrey flange to your cylinder. Is your header tank big enough? - they do give sizes in the book.

    We had a problem with ours after a few years, the pump kept on running in the middle of the night. We thought it was a leak, but it was the expansion vessel(ali can bolted on side). Replaced it for about £25 and system was nice and silent - only going on when a tap openned.
