Why use Flomate?

Many houses and apartments have problems with low water pressure and flow resulting in:

  • Poor water flow from taps
  • Poor shower performance
  • Problems with combination boiler operation
  • Problems with pressurised hot water cylinder systems

Flomate by Stuart Turner is a range of water pressure and flow boosting pump solutions designed to solve problems with low pressure and poor flow quickly and simply.

 

'Flomate - The solution to low mains water pressure and flow in your home'

A Flomate product to meet your specific water demands

A Flomate product to meet your specific water demands

Flomate is installed directly in line with the mains water supply where it enters your property.

The different products in the Flomate range are designed to cater for the water demands of a variety of property sizes, from an apartment with a single bathroom up to much larger properties with multiple bathrooms.

Increased water pressure and flow

Increased water pressure and flow

Using an innovative patented design, Flomate will activate automatically whenever a tap, shower or other water using appliance is switched on.

When activated, Flomate will boost the water pressure and flow throughout your property resulting in:

  • Improved shower performance
  • Less time taken to run a bath
  • Faster washing machine cycles
  • Improved combination boiler operation
  • Improved pressurised hot water cyliner operation

Pumping water directly from the mains supply

Flomate optimises your domestic water supply by boosting the water pressure and flow in your home - especially useful at those times of day when water demand is at its peak.

Uniquely, if at other time of day your water pressure and flow increases, Flomate's patented bypass feature will allow this increase in pressure and flow to reach your taps and other appliances without restriction!

Compact size

Compact size

Flomate is installed directly in line with the mains water supply where it enters your property. This is often under the kitchen sink.

Flomate solutions for smaller properties are very compact and designed to fit under the sink or within a standard 500mm kitchen base unit.

Flomate solutions for larger properties feature larger water storage cylinders which are more suited to installation in a utility room or garage.

Quiet & Reliable

Quiet & Reliable

Flomate products are relatively quiet in operation and generate a typical noise level of 50dBA. This is about the same as an average dishwasher.

The precision machined pump head is manufactured from brass and is driven by a state of the art induction motor. This results in the superb reliability and long life associated with Stuart Turner products.

A Flomate product to meet your specific water demands

The different products in the ´╗┐Flomate range are designed to cater for the water demands of a variety of property sizes, from an apartment with a single bathroom up to larger properties with two or more bathrooms or ensuite facilities.

Flomate

Flomate

Flomate will deliver an additional 1.5 bar pressure and provide a maximum flow of 12 litres per minute. The boost to water pressure and flow created by this compact pump is suitable for smaller properties where space is limited.

Flomate Mains Boost Extra

Flomate Mains Boost Extra

Flomate mains boost extra models are designed for larger occupancy properties and combine all the features of the Flomate pump. They can still be installed directly in line with the cold water mains supply and they supplement the water drawn from the mains supply with that from a pressurised water storage vessel.

Pressure output up to 3 bar and flow rates of up to 30 litres per minute can be achieved depending on the model selected.

Flomate iBoost

Flomate iBoost

Flomate iBoost is ideally suited to boost poor mains water supplies to larger domestic or light commercial properties using a high flow combination boiler or unvented cylinder system and with two or more bathrooms where higher pressure and flow are required.

Flomate iBoost pumps will provide an unrestricted 200 litres of stored water to ensure a consistent pressurised supply to multiple outlets. These compact pumps fit within any standard 600 mm kitchen cupboard and are easy to install with no on-site commissioning required.

* Assumes that the storage tank refills at a rate of 20 litres per minute from the mains supply

The standard Flomate product will boost the mains water supply flow rate up to 12 litres per minute continuously.

Flomate Mains Boost Extra systems supplement this flow using a pressurised water storage vessel. Depending on the rate of water use within the property, these systems will boost the water flow rate for a given period of time, after which the flow rate will drop to 12 litres per minute until the pressure vessel has had time to re-charge.
