The ShowerPowerBooster is a great little pump to boost the temperature in radiators which are not getting hot without replacing the main central heating pump or redesigning the whole system. In many homes radiators are not working because of air locks and the WrightChoice Radiator booster will solve this problem.
Our pumps are designed to work in very aggressive environments and we test our pumps to 8 bars pressure, working pressure at 85 degrees centigrade is 4 bar, they will not cavitate, burn out, can pump against closed valves, run dry, work 24/7 if needed, use just 12.5 watts of power, and are more efficient than any recirculation pump designed for pumping central heating water.
The manual version, the SP1 Shower Power Booster is what you want.
Our pumps come with a filter to stop the pumps jamming but if ever you did need to fix a jammed pump the pumps can be easily serviced without removing the pump.
A shower power booster will pump more water than your central heating circulation pump so if you let it run full out there is a danger that the radiators that never get hot get too hot and others go cold. A cheap 1/4 turn valve either side of the pump will allow you to perfectly balance your system.
Clearing Air Lock
Our pumps are brilliant for clearing air locks and after you fit them you will often find that the air lock will clear and the system works even when you turn off the pump. Air will accumulate and will collect again so do not take the pump out.
Where to fit the pump
Fit the pump either on the pipe upstream of the pipe downstream of the radiator or radiator you which to boost.
How to control the pump
1.0 Simply plug and unplug the transformer.
2.0 Add a Radio Remote (contact Alan Wright if you want one of these or buy them locally)
3.0 Connect it to the power supply to the existing central heating pump so it turns off and on at the same time.
4.0 Use a standard room stat so the pump only comes on when required.
The choice of how you control your pump will be whatever suites your situation.
The SP1 (described as a manually operated pump) is the perfect solution for making the end of run radiator or group of radiators or group of radiators on a ‘lazy’ leg which never runs hot, run hot.
They can be used for extending the central heating systems to a newly built extension.
