What causes a noisy shower pump?
Generally, the majority of shower pumps are noisy. A shower pump’s mechanism produces vibrations and this is what usually creates an unpleasant noise that can be heard when water is being run.
We have found that it is generally the cheaper pump models that cause the loudest noises – as the product is made from cheaper components that that are more likely to vibrant.
However, most of the noise that can be heard is the sound of water running through the pump.
Which shower pumps are the quietest?Although you should expect some level of noise from your shower pump, some models ARE quieter than others. This is all down to the brand that you choose and the quality of the product. As we mentioned above, cheaper pumps are characteristically more likely to vibrant, causing a louder noise.
Many of the top shower pump manufacturers have taken numerous steps to resolve this issue for their customers, using high quality materials that offer a quieter vibration when in use. Grundfos in particular have focused on creating noise reducing products, which aim to emit an extremely low operating noise whilst still maintaining the highest performance.
Popular manufacturer Stuart Turner has also tackled this problem, designing a range of shower pumps that feature anti-vibration feet to help keep noise to a minimum.
Many of shower pumps now also now quote 'Quiet' on their products, stating that their range of shower pumps are relatively quieter in operation to other pumps on the market.
How Can I Reduce the Noise of My Shower Pump?
If you already own a shower pump and are looking for simple ways to reduce the noise, a popular solution is to mount your pump onto a concrete block, which will help absorb the vibrations and in turn, reduce the noise.
Stuart Turner has also launched anti-vibration noise reducing pump mounting pads, which provides improved sound insulation to address the problem. Here is a perfect example of how the anti-vibration pads will help: “I have recently installed a shower pump which is located in the airing cupboard in a bathroom. Due to the way the airing cupboard is made, the vibration caused by the pump is causing a loud echoing noise throughout the house”. To resolve this issue, our expert team would suggest Anti-vibration pads or in some cases even concrete slabs to act as an anti-vibration pad to help reduce the noise.
Another tip is to make sure that the pipes surrounding your shower pump are fully secured and supported. This can help to limit the vibrations which can be transferred throughout your water systems.
