Universal Pumps

These are more expensive than standard pumps, but on some occasions are the only option.

If there is insufficient flow at the targeted outlets without the pump (as a guide, less than 1 litre per minute) then a Universal pump must be fitted.

Standard Pumps

These pumps will normally be sited at the base of the hot water cylinder.

Careful consideration needs to be made when choosing the type of pump required, and the manufacturers’ instructions should always be adhered to – this will ensure that any guarantee claims are valid.

A common mistake found is the installation of a standard pump when the configuration of the CWSC, pipework & outlets demands that a Universal pump be installed.
