Readers of plumbing’s best blog (that’s the one your reading, by the way), will already be aware of Home Boost, Salamander Pumps’ innovative solution for poor domestic water pressure and flow, not least because I’ve been banging on about how amazing it is. Ask Mike Sharrock, or Jethro Healey, if you need a second (and third) opinion!
Well now, Home Boost has been given WRAS approval. Home Boost was always WRAS compliant, but it’s great news that our game-changing product has now been given the WRAS ‘thumbs up’.
Just in case you don’t know, let me tell you just one more time: low water pressure is a daily source of irritation and inconvenience to countless people in the UK, but, as all plumbers and heating installers should know, it’s an offence, under The Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations 1999, to ‘connect a pump or a booster drawing more than 12 litres per minute to a supply pipe; either directly or indirectly’.
The software built into Home Boost recognizes increases in mains pressure and flow and reacts by automatically reducing its assistance to the incoming mains. In other words, Home Boost is regulated so that it can’t exceed the 12 litre per minute rule. ‘Simples’, as the mother-in-law’s favourite cuddly toys might say.
BTW, what is about those bloody meerkats? (Having said that, it just occurred to me that it’s either them or that fat opera singing bloke. I suppose I should be grateful that the old lady doesn’t insist on taking a miniature version of him to her bed every night. Ughh!)
I know I see things through Salamander tinted spectacles, but for me nothing comes close to Home Boost when you’re talking ‘innovation’
Home Boost was a finalist in the Plumbing Industry Awards, (PIA), as I told you last time, because of its innovation and design.Maybe, if we’d bought a table at the awards do instead of a couple of seats, we might have done better. I know I see things through Salamander tinted spectacles, but for me nothing comes close to Home Boost when you’re talking ‘innovation’, especially when that innovation leads to new business for plumbers…
But that’s all history now. Winner or not (and getting nominated was as good as winning, it says here), the fact is that householders now have a simple, low cost solution to poor mains pressure and flow, and installers have another string to their bow, as it were. And now, with WRAS approval, installers can have added confidence in a fantastic product that’s easy to install, efficient to operate; is comparatively inexpensive to buy and now -did I mention this?- has full WRAS approval.
So, go forth chaps, into the homes of those afflicted by dodgy showers, of those whose upstairs tap doesn’t work when the downstairs tap is open, of those denied a combi boiler because the pressure just isn’t there; and solve those domestic horrors with a Home Boost!
Your customers will love you for it: although, thinking about it, who doesn’t love a plumber?
See you next time
