There are a range of different showers and shower heads all of which require different bar pressures (pressure required to function to maximum capacity). For this reason there are different pumps for different showers and water pressures.
People living in urban and rural areas may experience different water pressure. In addition if you live on a hill it will also be different to those who live on flat ground. Also, most shower pumps are designed to be fitted onto open vented hot and cold systems.
If your shower head is below the cold water storage tank and when in use you are getting a minimum flow rate of 0.6 litres per minute from it, to boost this you will require a positive head booster pump.
A booster pump is designed to be installed onto both hot and cold stored water supplies. This is to ensure that both supplies are boosted to the same level which is particularly effective for mixer showers. Therefore giving you a greater level of control over the temperature when showering. Depending on how powerful the twin impeller pumps are they can be used to boost multiple showers simultaneously.
Pumps are rated in ‘bar’ which is the measure of pressure – 1 bar pressure being equal to 10 metres static head of water. The higher the bar rating the higher the pressure. The following is a general guide for applications: Up to 1.0 bar pressure = Low boost Up to 2.0 bar pressure = Medium boost 3.0 bar plus bar pressure = High boost
