Has anybody installed one of these and found it beneficial? Would really appreciate feedback. Somebody has also suggested a header tank, any thoughts?

If you don't have a header tank and your on town supply then you'll have a tempering valve and a copper pipe on the roof which takes the place of the header tank. Extend the pipe and reset the tempering valve

I have tank supply with header tank. Water pressure to shower was not good so had good fortune of having mate fit an in-line booster pump. Certainly made a difference-not up to mains pressure but well acceptable now.
Adjusting temp can be tricky-too far into cold and flow through pump drops below pressure needed to keep pump turned on. A couple of instant cold experiences makes one careful.

what's the objective? whats the situation?

obviously low HW pressure... but.. more info required.

a pump requires electricity, fine if you have plenty. also runs intermittently, PITA if you like to shower without listening to a pump running.


cheers

A cousin installed one in a house where the hot water pressure from a header tank was very poor to the new upstairs bathroom.
We used the shower, and didn't notice the pump running or anything wrong with the pressure, so it was working well!
I can't say what the pump was, but it probably isn't available here anyway, as this was in Yorkshire.[;)]
