    I'm intending to install a shower pump. The supply pipes come from above but the feed pipes to mixer tap will go under the pump. Will attaching elbows fittings reduce the pressure or cause any issues?

    There’s usually no option not to use elbows. As long as the install has been done well, all should be fine.

    Let's hope so? Thank you for your advice

    The instructions usually say the max angle that the pump flexis can be bent so you’ll probably have to take your outlets up first then loop down to the pipes you describe using fittings or bends if there’s space.

    As alluded to above - you MUST use the flexis supplied.

    Have you considered turning the pump by 180 degrees which may make it easier?

    I didn't know you could have the pump upside down if that's what you mean by 180°?

    No, spin it round so inputs and ouputs swapped.

    I’ve fitted a few, and all had elbows. Worked 100% and no callbacks. Stuart Turner pumps.
