Techflo qt Universal 2.3 bar Twin - Shower & whole house pumps

Previous Products

The Techflo qt Universal 2.3 bar Twin pump has been phased out and superseded by the equivalent Monsoon pump (for a whole house) or Showermate pump (for a single shower/bathroom).

For whole house applications, see Monsoon U3.0 bar Twin

For single shower/bathroom applications, see Showermate U2.6 bar Twin



Techflo qt Universal Twin pumps are designed to boost the incoming hot and cold water supply to an individual shower, complete bathroom, or whole house. Suitable for both positive and negative head applications.

Universal pumps do not require a gravity flow of water to start.


  • Boost hot and cold water supplies equally
  • Single function shower
  • Multi-function shower
  • Bath/basin mixer tap
