Twin Impeller Shower Pump Connectors

Hi and good morning to everyone

I am looking for some advise please, I have installed a shower pump under my bath and connected the pump up to the mixer taps and pipe work by using flexiblle tap connectors. I later realised that I was suppose to buy the specific flexible connectors designed for the pump. The only difference I can see is that the specific flexible connectors have plastic screw on fittings and have plastic push on fittings to the pipe , where as the tap connectors i have used have metal screw on connnectors and compression fittings to the pipe .

I have not turned the pump on yet as i am not sure if it is safe to run the way I have rigged it up. I am just running the water form the gravity for now.

Please can someone advise me if it is ok to run the pump as I have installed it or if I should buy the correct fittings and install it again.

Look forward to your replies...

You should always use the right parts for the job, especially when it comes to water.

The flexible pump connectors serve 2 purposes.

1. Reduces pipe vibration to and from the shower pump.

2. Has no nasty tight bends and thus helps the flow rate.

Its up to you but I would go back to where you bought the shower pumps and get the correct connectors.

What type of shower pump is it? As I fit Salamander shower pumps and they always come with the connectors in the pack.
