    Hi all

    I would like to add a hot water pump to my system to increase the hot water pressure throughout the house.

    System is a conventional system with cold water tanks in the loft, hot water cylinder in the airing cupboard. House is a 4 bed with one mixer shower.

    I’ve been looking at the Salamander range but there are quite a few. Which would you recommend would best suit my requirements (positive head type)?

    Thanks

    Stuart Turner monsoon - no larger than a 1.5bar pump I would say. Don't forget though, unbalanced hot and cold water pressure and/or flow will cause issues with your mixer showers/mixer taps if you have them, so they need to be taken into consideration too. You may want to think of a twin depending on what's being pumped.

    I use the Stuart Turner for the shower but to increase hot water flow throughout the house I installed a flow flex sp2b in the 22mm hot water pipe from the hot water cylinder, works a treat.
