    Hi,

    We got a water pressure issue. We live in a 2 bed semi-d house.
    The pressure coming out from the shower in the en-suite and bath (external hose from the taps) are not great. Apparently the main pressure is only about 2.7 so not great either.

    Was thinking to fit a pump up on the loft which feeds water from the hot tank.

    Salamander CT force negative head 3.0 bar pump with brass impeller is the one my plumber recommends.

    Would this be a good option?

    My current fitting is a vented tank in my son's room in the cupboard.

    Any advice welcome?

    Pump should really be on the floor next to the hot water cylinder. Why a negative (universal) head pump, if you are getting flow from the shower head (about 1L per min from each) that should be plenty to trigger a standard pump and it will be cheaper.
