If your taps have a poor flow, your showers have low water pressure water, or you tire of noisy power showers, you no longer need expensive changes to your pipe work or noisy expensive power shower pumps or shower boosters to give you a great refreshing shower. Our new invention is a very quiet shower booster, as seen on Dragons Den, and is the winner of over £20,000 from two Universities in recognition of its science. It won best water innovation 2012 from Imperial College London. All Shower Power Booster Pumps come with all the fittings to fit both 15mm or 22mm pipe, either vertical, or horizontal, upward or downward flows, as standard, so change your mind where to fit it, and you still have the correct fittings in the box. The shower pumps are 1/10th the size of traditional pumps so you do not fill your cupboards with big pumps, yet they increase the pressure in any pipe a shower power booster is fitted to. It works if you have a positive or negative head.
The fully auto pumps are designed to fit easily even if there is no play in your pipes as they slide over one pipe and back into place (but make sure you do not block the feed to the pump (see videos).
Shower Power Booster is uncomplicated and easy to install with little DIY ability, and fits to existing pipes in minutes with no additional plumbing. Unlike other power showers, everything is included in the pump pack to do the job and there is no need to increase the capacity of your cold water tank even if its a small Fortic Tank. You can run up to four pumps off your lighting circuit or just plug into a spare 3 pin plug socket. The fully automatic shower power booster, SPB02, is simplicity itself, its ‘plug and play’ with an automatic on/off flow switch amongst the best on the market Fit it in the airing cupboard, under a floorboard, in the loft, under the bath, and just enjoy the benefit today, tomorrow, and into the future, forgetting you ever had a problem.
If you are in doubt, try our shower power booster, and if it fails to please, we will give you a refund. Provided you have a shower or tap designed for gravity systems,it will work – its just pure science. A good traditional shower in the UK can be from 4.5 to 6 litres a minute (many electric showers are only 3.5 litres a minute) Please note that this is a true ‘eco pump’ and if you have a large rain shower type shower head which delivers 8 litres a minute you will need two shower power booster (on the hot and the cold), any more flow than that and the shower power booster will think you are having a bath and deactivate.
I believe in traditional values so the pumps are designed to last with no in built obsolescence. We give you a 3 year warranty. The pumps are designed to be fully serviceable by the customer without invalidating the warranty, with low cost spares available into the future through our site Click here for ShowerHeads&Hoses .I believe in giving great customer service and providing a great product – see our latest customer reviews on the right hand side of this page.

Shower Power Booster is manufactured in Derbyshire by Flowflex. This pump is designed to work on all systems and is the only pump you can buy which can improve a shower from a Combi Boiler, it will always improve the pressure to an Electric Shower. A single pump on the hot can improve a Poor Gravity Shower. Its great for solar thermal and wood burner heating systems and ‘hidro tanks’ in Bolivia.
The shower pump is ‘intelligent’ in that it recognises if you are running a bath, a tap, or a gravity shower,an electric shower, and adjusts its output accordingly. It does the same job as a large power shower with a much smaller and more efficient shower booster pump because it can selectively boost just enough water for a great shower or tap flow – and no more. The fully automatic version of this pump is ‘plug and play’ retrofit ideal for a DIY (please read Choose The Right Shower Power Booster For You and our section on Fully Automatic Shower Power Booster). A simply DIY job for many or a quick and simple job for a plumber solving problem which would have cost a fortune before the invention of this pump. In 15 minutes you could transform your dribbly taps to give a good flow and enjoy a refreshing more powerful shower.
Validated in the Oil & Gas laboratories at Cranfield University, Shower Power Booster was awarded a €20,000 cash prize by Imperial College London for Climate-KIC Best Water Innovation 2012. This durable pump will give years of service and allows us to give a 36 Month Warrantee
Its the smart new way to enjoy a good shower, save money, and help the environment by using a pump that uses intelligent physics and not lots of electricity and noise from an Inventor with 30 years experience in water supply, water quality, and water distribution.
For electric shower and combi boilers look at the relevant sections in this web site to see how it can help you however over 12.5 million homes have gravity hot water systems, and one in ten have low pressures. A typical gravity shower needs 1 metre of water to give you the minimum pressure for a gravity shower; we guarantee that this pump will add further 3 metres head to a typical shower after installation giving you 4 times the minimum. As a rough ‘rule of thumb’, the pump will increase the flow by 50% when it doubles the pressure so if you have a shower which has 1 metre head and 3 litres a minute, the flow will be better than double, plus, you will get much more force from the water jets.If the shower is in a basement and you already have 6 metres head, adding 4 metres head with a shower power booster will always improve what you have but the problem is the shower mixer itself. It is well worth checking if your shower or tap is designed for low pressure or is simply a high pressure version.There are thousands of shower mixers and taps which are designed to work on a minimum of one metre head and will always give you a better showering experience than a product rated at 5 metres minimum. The more efficient showers and taps look just as elegant, and are widely available.
Whilst we would encourage to to enjoy a great shower using a single pump, you as the customer has total flexibility in what you decide to install. For most people a single pump is the solution and all you will need, but you might decide to add a second pump on the cold for balanced flow, you might decide you want to double the pressure on the hot or cold to give over 10 metres head additional head rather than the 5 metres head a single pump can supply. 2 pumps in series will double the pressure. You can get the same pressure as you would for a power shower but without the noise and we do a special offer for fully automatic ‘balanced flow’ or fully automatic ‘double pressure boost’.
Shower Power Booster is eco intelligent giving you a great shower by using half the water of a traditional power shower without using a crazy water restrictor (many manufacturers sell big pumps which use far to much water so they add a restrictor to kill the pressure). If you already have a good shower, well shower power booster can sense that as well, so the pump rests, springing back into action when the pressure falls.
One single Shower Power Booster can solve low flows or low pressures in every shower and tap in your whole house or you might want to fit it to improve a single tap or shower for maximum effect. The Shower Power Booster ensures that you always have a substantial amount of water coming out of your taps and that your shower gives a much more powerful flow of water as well.
The pump can actually tell whether you are running a bath or a shower to give you the right flow and pressure for a bath, a shower, or a tap. If you turn off the power to a Shower Power Booster the flow will be the same as you had before you fitted it so in a power cut you do not lose water.
To install, all you need to do is simply cut the existing pipe, insert the Shower Power Booster, tighten the compression joints, and plug in the transformer. It truly is as simple as that. So now you can say goodbye to dribbling taps and low power showers in minutes at a fraction of the cost of traditional solutions with a great new British Invention.
A few customers may need a pump on the hot and cold pipes, but for most people the cold supply is a decent pressure, or even mains fed, a single Shower Power Booster fitted to the hot pipe can make every tap and shower in your house better. If you are unfortunate enough to need a second pump to boost the hot and the cold supply you can add a pump and upgrade within 3 months of buying your single pump at the same discount price as the multibuy offers on the web site.
Fitting is easy as you do not need to drain the whole system, you simply cut the pipe and install the small quiet pump into your existing pipe. Replacing a noisy water-guzzling power shower could pay for itself many times in a year. An electric shower that drops out when pressure is low no longer runs hot and cold. Not only will you save money, but you could also be doing your bit in saving water and saving energy.
And finally – when you buy our pump, our commitment to you the customer does not end there. We will not duck and dive to avoid warrantees. Should you need spare parts, these will always be available at low cost. Shower Power Booster is designed to be fully serviceable based on interchangeable components.
