The solution of choice for commercial properties, and now available to homeowners, ScubaTANK® puts an end to slow filling baths and underpowered showers - and it does it in style. The only domestic pump with the coveted WRAS approval, ScubaTANK® combines several unique features which set it apart from other pumps in the marketplace.
Fortunately, there’s now a way to get round the problem of low water pressure. ScubaTANK is a high quality pump system that can transform low water pressure at the same time as being energy efficient, low on noise and certified to maintain the quality of drinking water. It works by storing water and then pumping it through your water supply when you need it.
It is a fully self-contained water pressure booster system that is designed to increase the mains water pressure in a variety of properties. It is the best way to turn low flow into high flow regardless of the location or size of a property. Put simply, ScubaTANK means no more dribbling taps, no more waiting aeons for the bath to fill, and no more disappointing showers.
For many years, ScubaTANK has been used in commercial properties but it is now available for domestic properties too. It is currently the only domestic pump system of its kind with full system WRAS approval and combines a number of unique features which make it hard to beat. These include:
Water pressure you can rely on: It doesn’t matter how many showers, baths or other outlets you have, your water pressure will be consistently reliable around the clock

Space saving: ScubaTANK may be big on impact, but it’s small on space. Compared to alternative products it won’t take up much room in your property
Low noise: The ScubaTANK pump is fully insulated meaning you don’t have to listen to the annoying whir of motors doing their thing every time you turn on a tap
Eco friendly: Energy use is kept low thanks to ScubaTANKS’s variable speed device. Not only does this mean you save money, it also means less maintenance and a longer service life

In order to guarantee protection from legionella, ScubaTANK is insulated to ensure that water does not rise to a temperature at which legionella is able to grow.Can I use ScubaTANK for my garden hose/sprinkler system?
With a minor modification, ScubaTANK can be used for these applications. An additional safety feature known as an 'AB air gap' is required in these situations to ensure that dirty water does not contaminate the mains supply. In most cases it is simpler to connect any externals taps directly to the mains.Why does ScubaTANK need to store water?
Water regulations only allow a pump to draw 12 litres/minute from the mains supply. This is barely enough for a single shower. Because ScubaTANK has an integrated water storage tank, this limit does not apply, allowing you to use multiple outlets, including rainhead showers, at good pressure, at the same time.Where is ScubaTANK made?
All ScubaTANK are built and tested in the UK.
