Nothing quite beats the ease and practicality of a shower does it? Whether you wake up to yours, enjoy one before going to bed or both, getting in and drenching yourself in clean warm water is a real luxury. Unless, of course, your shower is feeling the pressure - it may be that you need a booster pump installed, or if you already have one, it may just be a simple fix.
We've collected everything you need to know and put it into this simple guide 'All You Need To Know About Booster pumps' to help you choose the best booster pump for your setup. If you already have a booster pump, this guide will help you decide if your current pump can be fixed or if you need to replace it with a new one.
What is a booster pump?
Before we can answer the question 'What is a booster pump?' it's better to explain quickly how a shower works. When it's switched on, water is fed into the hose, or into the unit first to be heated if you have an electric shower, which then travels upwards toward the shower head which then sprays out and showers you.
For the water to travel upwards it needs to go against gravity and this is where water pressure comes in. Depending on the distance the water needs to travel will require a variety of water pressures (measured in bars). If the water pressure is too low, then the spray from the shower head will typically be a dribble; not quite the shower effect we'd all hope for huh!
A booster pump is a small device measuring around 30cm in length (although sizes do vary and can be much smaller and much larger) which boosts water pressure in your pipes by increasing the volume of water which is pumped through your pipes. The improved water pressure is visible at the shower head where the force of the spray becomes greater as the pressure and flow rate increases.
