Question Shower pump help!

Mod note: Member is in the UK.

Hi there,

I need to boost the low water pressure I have in my top floor flat at peak times when everyone is getting ready for work. I think a shower pump will do it but not sure which one? The diagram on this home boost pump looks similar to my set up can anyone confirm this is right for my flat before I part with my hard earned cash? Salamander Home Boost Pump 1.6 Bar

Thanks for your help in advance

This is primarily U.S. and Canada forum. Here in the U.S. the problem usually, if there is one, is the pressure is too much. Most here won't be familiar with your problem and those who are probably won't be familiar with pumps available in the U.K. Even some of the terms in your link like "bar" are strange. However hang in there. Someone may be able to help.

Do you have your own water heater or it hot water provided by the building's boiler? It could work if you install it in the one water line feeding your apartment and before it splits to go to your water heater.

Ok, plumbing terminology differs - I didn't realise!
