Do I need a Shower waste pump?

- Written by Connor

Some showers don’t have enough clearance for a gravity waste, this means that water can pool and not always drain away from the shower easily. Causing it to sit in the shower area or pipes surrounding the area. AKW is proud to present a great selection of digital shower waste pumps. They offer the benefits of simple and effective installation, they’re some of the quietest on the market and are compatible with a variety of outlet size pipes.

When selecting AKW digital shower waste pumps, it’s important to realise that the system will be most efficient, most effective and at its quietest when teamed with an AKW pumped waste and an AKW SmartCare Plus Shower. These products were all designed to work together and are at their most effective when they do so.
