Hi Alan, looks like it could be an interesting product.

Have you got any data from an independent test house to show performance please?

A google search didn’t come up with much technical info on this.

One the things which the new landing page will do is give links to technical specifications etc (I am still trying to recover from a Marketing Agency that thought removing all technical data was a good idea and trashed my web site).
The validation of the Shower Power Booster took place at Cranfield University in the oil and gas research department with output data based on a pump which has since been upgraded and improved and automated. Since 2012 we have sold around £1.5 million worth of pumps worldwide.
TrustPilot
We signed up for Trustpilot to get independent reviews 6 months ago and our current TrustPilot based on 652 reviews gives 82% of customers saying its excellent (and 10% saying its great).
Shower Power Booster is rated "Excellent" with 9.2 / 10 on Trustpilot
Technical Specification

I’d be interested to see the flow lab data when you get the landing page up and running.

What sort of MTBF can you guarantee?

Are the units serviceable in any way or do you just recommend replacement on most faults?

How does the unit cope in hard water areas?

If the pump fails does it cause a restriction to flow?

I can see why you’d choose use a power pack rather than the unit being 240v but I’m never a fan of burying things like this in lofts or under floor boards from a fire safety perspective.

1.0 Lab flow data was based on an earlier motor which is less potent that the latest models.
2.0 Pumps sold in 2013 are still going strong but we sell about 1 pump motor a month and you can buy a replacement motor for £25 and just replace the motor
3.0 It works brilliantly in hard water areas - I have never had a failure. Pumps I fitted in in my own home which is a renowned hard water area shows zero buildup.
4.0 If you get a power cut there is no restriction to flow. A 22mm single check valves opens plus some flow still gets through the bypass pump.
5.0 There is a fuse in the plug, a trip in the transformer, a trip in the flow switch, and neither the pump or the transformer runs hot. Electrical safety is not an issue.
All our pumps are made under strict quality control by Flowflex in Buxton in Derbyshire. Each flow circuit is tested in Buxton Norfolk and then after assembly in Buxton Derbyshire the flow switches are retested as part of the whole assembly where a 8 bar pressure test is also applied.
I could make the pumps in China or Vietnam and save a bit of money but I wanted a quality product that would not fail in service.
There are circumstances where the only real place to put the pumps is inside a partition wall:- https://showerpowerbooster.co.uk/blog/boosting-showers-and-taps-in-hotels/

Looks interesting!

Still not a fan of power supplies plugged in permanently.

I’ve got UKAS certified pressure and flow instruments in the workshop and a shockingly poor vented hot water system/shower at home. Hopefully this will cut down on the nagging from the wife and I’ll be able to provide some good feedback.

Is a Surrey flange required as with other pumps?
