    Hello all, my street and neighbouring ones suffer from pretty bad water pressure.

    I've decided to try a Homeboost.

    Fitting wise it just hangs off the pipework which seems a bit strange to me, is it worth adding a bracket of some description or is that just a waste of time/ effort?.

    Couple of pipe clips wouldn't go amiss, it's quite heavy. I've got a slightly used one sitting in my garage looking for a home if you're interested....

    I've got a new one on it's way, would have been interested in yours though!.

    They go for good money on ebay if you can put up with the hastle of selling it.

    Pipe is solidly clipped in but seems a lot to hang off a pipe..

    Did yours not have the required results?.

    It worked very well when attached to an old well supply, but was made redundant when a new water main was brought in from the road. Will get around to selling it one day!

    Message me what you'd want for it, might be worth having as a spare at right price ;).

    Had a look today, the Homeboost is quite heavy and no chance of just hanging it off the pipes where I intend to fit it!.

    Making a shelf to take the weight and to strap it to, job for the weekend I think..
