Shower Pump Installation

Shower Pump Installation

If you’re suffering from low shower pressure, a shower pump installation needs to be considered. A shower pump will increase the amount of thrust in your system, forcing more water through your pipework. This results in increased water pressure from your showerhead. Shower pumps are compact devices that increase the amount of water that is allowed into your pumps.

Aside from increasing the hygiene credentials of your bathroom, a shower pump installation will make your everyday life easier and, ultimately, save money on your energy bills. Thinking about an installation? Speak to the experts at Complete Plumbing Solutions today.

Booster Pump Installation

If your home has trouble with low water pressure, a booster pump installation is a worthwhile investment. A booster pump is a small device that is connected directly to your plumbing system. Once you’ve invested in a water booster pump installation, the device will monitor your water pressure. When levels are low, it will automatically kick in, boosting the pressure of any water coming into your system.

A booster pump installation is popular with commercial premises that suffer from low pressure issues. However, a shower pump installation is also worthwhile if you live in an apartment in a multistorey building that regularly suffers from low water pressure.

Submersible Well Pump Installation

Submersible Well Pump Installation

Not everyone has access to a mains water supply. If you depend on a well pump to redirect groundwater to your plumbing system, a submersible well pump installation should be considered. During a submersible well pump installation, a compact pumping device will be installed in your well, positioned below the water line.

They’re designed with deeper wells in mind, where your water supply needs a helping hand to get to where it needs to be. Submersible well pumps are incredibly efficient. As they’re placed beneath the water line, they don’t have to work on overtime to push water into your home. They don’t require priming, providing you with ready access to fresh water.

Wash Down Pump Installation

Wash Down Pump Installation

If you’re in the commercial or agricultural sector, a wash down pump installation is needed. Wash down systems require far higher water pressure levels than conventional plumbing.

To produce these high pressures and increased water volumes, parlour wash down pump installations are essential. It will allow you to meet the strictest hygiene standards, while also providing consistently high volumes of water output.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How does a shower pump work?

Shower pumps are fairly simple devices. Low-pressure water is redirected through a fast-spinning impeller. As water is pumped through, the pressure increases, leading to a noticeable improvement when the water leaves your showerhead. If you’re constantly dealing with a dribble of water in the morning, a shower pump is a quick and effective way of making your everyday routine that little bit easier.

Q: How is a shower pump installed?

Although installing a shower pump can be done relatively quickly, it involves many steps. To install a shower pump correctly, you’ll need to have advanced knowledge of plumbing and electrical wiring. For safety and peace of mind, it’s always best to call in the experts to install a shower pump.

Q: How much does a shower pump cost?

Shower pump installation costs ultimately depends on the model of pump you opt for. Once you’ve picked out a pump, you’ll also need to factor in additional things like VAT and labour costs. Ultimately, the cost of having a shower pump installed should set you back around €600.

Q: How long will a shower pump last?

Even a basic shower pump will prove to be surprisingly robust. Factoring average usage into the equation, a typical shower pump should perform well for at least 8 years. However, if you notice any noticeable drops in water pressure, it might be time to call in a plumber to diagnose any underlying issues.

Q: What does a booster pump do?

Booster pumps are often used to tackle issues with low water pressure or poor flow rate. An effective booster provides water with the extra pressure it needs to find its way from your water storage tank to other areas of the home. If your plumbing system is far from your water source, they’re a must. They’re also handy if you’re experiencing multiple plumbing issues that can’t be resolved or you’re based in an urban area with low-pressure water.

Q: How do I know what size booster pump I need?

For a booster pump to prove effective, you’ll need to have a clear idea of performance requirements. For most people, this is as simple as improving flow rate and pressure. However, it’s always best to call in a professional to give you a clear idea of the size of booster pump your home or premises needs.

Q: How is a hot water booster pump installed?

When it comes to installing a hot water booster pump, never attempt to fit the device yourself. Just one minor mistake can lead to costly damage to your hot water cylinder and pipework. For peace of mind, speak to plumbers for all your hot water booster pump installation needs.

Q: How do I stop an outside well pump from freezing?

There are a couple of ways you can stop an outside well pump from freezing. Sitting water is the main cause of frozen pipes and pumps. To overcome this issue, ensure some water is constantly running through your system, even if you’re not actively using it. Once external temperatures increase, you don’t have to worry about constantly forcing water through your system.

Q: How is a submersible well pump installed?

Installing and replacing a submersible well pump requires considerable time and effort. Just one little mistake can lead to increased expense, not to mention a delay in your water supply being restored. If you want to take control of costs and ensure you’re not left without water for long, the best advice is to use the services of a professional plumber.

Q: What's the cost of a deep well pump?

Deep well water pump installation isn’t as expensive as you might think. However, installation costs ultimately depend on the pump model you pick and how deep your well is. Deep well pump installation is markedly more expensive than pumps for shallow wells, for example. On average, having a deep well pump installed should set you back around €1,200. This includes VAT and labour costs.

Q: How long will a well pump last?

There’s no easy answer to this question. Some well pumps will last for around 15 years, while others can perform for twice as long. A basic well pump model will typically require being replaced earlier than a premium one. However, how frequently you use your well pump is the main factor determining its lifespan.
