Manufacturer Salamander offers a step-by-step of how easy it is to install... Salamander’s Home Boost improves the water performance from combi boiler systems in areas of low water pressure. Home Boost is a pump that responds to varying incoming water conditions, boosting flow rate up to a constant 12 l/m the legal maximum you can draw from the mains. It only works when it has to. INSTALLATION Step one: Firstly, read through the installation and warranty guide to familiarise yourself with how the pump needs to be installed – it’s not difficult and doesn’t take long. Following the instruction guide will mean a correct and safe installation, as well as validating the warranty. Step two: All the fittings are included in the pack and HomeBoost requires just two inline connections on to rigid, fixed pipework. A suitable location is within two metres of your stop-tap (if going on the cold mains into the combi, non-return valves on all previous outlets should be fitted). Step three: Using the supplied fittings kit, assemble the plumbing connections to the pump - reducing sets are supplied for either 22mm or 15mm copper pipe applications. Step four: Measure and cut a section of pipe away to install Home Boost. Fit full bore isolating valves after the pump and if needed, one before the pump. Install the pump into the space and tighten all the connections. Step five: To commission, simply run water through all outlets before the pump is switched on, checking all the time for leaks. Then, plug in to a nearby 13 amp socket. Step six: Switch on the power supply and confirm everything is working, indicated by a clockwise rotating light on the front of the pump. Step seven: Finally, return the warranty card back to Salamander Pumps for Pump Wise, Salamander’s acclaimed service support scheme.
