Re: Low water pressure in Flat

First link from google http://www.salamanderpumps.co.uk/pumps/home-boost/

The pump only runs when the water is running, the only time I ever heard it was after flushing the toilet, the pump being on the roof 60cm above the upstairs bathroom. If your on the roof you can hear it, it's no louder than the pump of a washing machine, probably quieter. Running a bath is much louder than the pump.
Although, if he doesn't have his own boiler then he could need two pumps, one for the hot and one for the cold - if his cold is really low pressure as well (which it is, as he wrote).

I fitted one on the shower back in the U.K. as the pressure really was quite low. It worked a treat until one of the internal seals broke and flooded downstairs very fast with high-pressure water.
That's something to consider if you are at the top of a shared building).
