Water pump for electric shower: private water supply

Hi everyone.
We've got an electric shower and very low water pressure due to being on a private supply from a spring. The shower has a pressure sensor, and won't heat water because of the low pressure.

The whole rig from top to bottom is
1) spring collection
2) into 10'000l storage tank
3) 100m run with 3 meter drop into gravity fead filter in the neighbour's shed.
4) Water splits after the filter to 4 properties including ours.
5) another 100m run with 3m drop to our cabin
6) water branches off to our shower, another branch goes to the kitchen
7) I can only put a pump, just before the shower, not in my neighbour's shed.

Can anyone recommend what power rating of pump I'd need? I live in the UK if that helps.
Would something like this do the trick?

Many thanks for any help
