Jumping into the shower is an invigorating way to start your day; it’s also more economical than running a bath too!
Sometimes your water pressure can let you down, and there’s nothing worse than a shower head dribbling drops of water instead of a fast flow.
In many cases, you will need a shower pump to give your water pressure a boost. You’ll need to make sure it is fitted properly so you don’t get any problems. The last thing you want is for a noisy shower pump to annoy the rest of the household.
We've found that usually the pumps at the lower end of the market which make the most noise, as their cheaper parts are more likely to vibrate, so investing wisely is one good option.
If you do have problems with a noisy shower pump, there are a few things you can try for a quick fix. If your shower pump is already fitted, you could try mounting it on a concrete block to absorb some of the vibration or checking that the pipes are tight and securely fitted to the pump to reduce noise. These small amends should lessen the vibration and noise pollution from your pump when you turn on the shower next.
If you have tried all of the above, and your noisy shower pump is still too much of a problem to solve, it is advisable to fit a new one.
