Product Overview

SCALA2 is a fully integrated water booster pump providing perfect water pressure in all taps at all times. SCALA2 has an intelligent pump control that automatically adjusts performance to both inlet pressure and water consumption in the home. Thanks to a water-cooled motor, SCALA2 even offers one of the lowest noise levels of any booster on the market. If the pressure drops below the desired level, SCALA2 boosts its operation immediately to compensate for the loss of pressure.
  • SCALA2 is the perfect choice for residential buildings with up to 3 floors and 8 taps
  • Perfect water pressure: intelligent pump control adjusts operation automatically
  • Low noise: as quiet as a modern dishwasher (47 dB(A) in typical use)
  • Easy selection: 1 variant for all domestic boosting needs
  • Easy installation: compact, all-in-one solution, plug-and-pump
  • Easy to operate: user-friendly control panel
  • Reliable operation: dry-running protection, anti-cycling
  • Long lifetime: quality-tested to perfection, maintenance-free
  • For higher quality and longer lasting booster pump see Model #CMBE 1-44 (Internet #303832809)
  • If purchased to replace an older SCALA2, you MUST use the nuts and threads of the new unit, and new unit will appear to be leaking internally if new nuts and threads are not used

The pump received had obviously been a returned item with markings removed from the box, thread sealant on the connections, impressions from securing bolts, and previous shipping labels removed. Returned it the same day to our local Home Depot. They took it back with no problems and apologies.

Response from chrisMar 8, 2018
I am sorry for your inconvenience and very much appreciate you letting us know. Grundfos had a recall on this product and has specifically asked us to send them back all Scalla's that are returned unless we are certain they are in an unopened state. In fact because of the recall they have taken them back no questions asked. As such I am very surprised by this. If you have the time and could give me a call I would be very interested in your order number so i could research that specific unit. With your order number I can pull the serial number. That will me to investigate the process here and to make sure that we are not being shipped reconditioned product. Thanks Chris 978 651 3301

    Excellent pump for multi story house! I am using this pump to swap out a Sima booster pump that is non adjustable (I will keep the Sima as a backup). The Scala2 is very quiet when it turns on because of the variable speed feature. I have it adjusted to 51 psi pressure which is 10 more than the Sima ever reached. My incoming pressure is10 psi from a neighborhood water tower. The constant pressure is not totally constant for me because I have a 20 gallon bladder tank installed which gives me a 2 gallon cushion before it turns on. This should make the pump last longer, and the pressure varies from 55psi down to 46psi which is ideal for my family. Slight moisture from the seals. Grunfos says will stop after it wears in (only had it for 3 weeks). Highly recommended.

        Don’t buy
        I’m on my second one of these in 12mths. First one started leaking out the bottom after 6mths of use. It was replaced under warranty and now in about the same timeframe the new one is also leaking out the bottom. Seems like a ongoing issue.

          They start leaking around the 2 year mark
          My second of these pumps in 3.5 years just started leaking - each time quite a mess as it can take a few days to notice. Grundfos draws a hard line on their warranty at 2 years, which I suppose isn't surprising as it seems to correspond closely to the apparent life of this pump. It was being used in a residence, so relatively light use. These pumps just don't seem to be well made.

            This pump is smart. I will ramp up or down depending on the inlet water pressure. It has done excellent so far. It is hooked up to city water system with low pressure. I just hope the pump is durable, and lasts a long time.

                3 week review. Municipal water supply pressure boosting.Our well went bad (water level dropping and muddying up every time it rained) and we were able to work out getting county water to our house by coming across neighbors property. Had put in 1,000 ft of 1 1/2" pipe to get the water to the house and go up 80ft in elevation. Having 55 psi at the meter the pressure was only 12 psi after traveling the distance and making the climb up the hill. The SCALA 2 has been doing a great job for the last three weeks and keeps our household pressure at 45 psi. The most we have had flowing at one time was a 9 gpm tub, 1.8 gpm shower and a 1.2 gpm faucet with no sign of pressure drop. So up to this point we are happy. The install went really easy. Had to adapt down to 3/4" on the inlet & outlet and went with a 3/4" flex line to insure there was little vibration transfer. The noise level is very low.

                    Mine started failing to keep pressure up, then started leaking, a little over a year after it was installed. I would recommend trying something else

                      Poor quality. Had two - both failed around 2 years
                      Read other reviews online the product is poorly made. The bearings go and it starts leaking water - that happened with the first one that I pirchased and then with the replacement (under warranty). Luckily the unit was in the basement so no water damage.

                          they dropped the ball
                          My plumber installed it about 18 months ago. At first it was great. Now it is super loud and doesn't shut off correctly just cycles on and off finally it will shut off. My plumber used Mesher supply Co in Redmond Oregon. No one told me the pump had been recalled. They have been no help now my plumber has bailed out. I have a new plumber installing A Dura Mac tomorrow. Grundfos says it is out of warranty because it is over 30 months since it was manufactured (installed 18 months ago). Mesher supply has been no help. I will never buy another Grundfos product and Grundfos use to be top notch.

                            Grundfos did send me a new pump
                            I wrote a bad review after my pump failed at 3 years. Leaking water underneath and very noisy. I spent a month trying to find someone who cared at Grundfos. Maybe it is the C19 or whatever. Anyway, they did send a new pump with a manufacture date code of the 36th week of 2020. It has been running fine for 2 weeks. The warranty is 2 years and Home depot did all they could to help. I would suggest that if you have a pump built pre-2019 you watch it carefully before the 2 year warranty is up. This is a great pump for my offgrid house and I depend on it for fires we have in California. I also have 2 other fire pumps on-line here. The pump when working correctly is very quiet and is like my 3/4 HP fire pumps as far as pressure and volume. I pump from a tank about 30 feet above the pump. I also have a 200 gallon equivalent pressure tank that reduces pump cycles by about 25% or so. It is not needed but it does help a bit. Please read my other review under display name Dave. I will raise the rating in 3 years : ) GOOD LUCK !

                                Pressure works only on LOW
                                I Used to love this unit. I’ve had it for over a year with no issues but now I can only have it set to the lowest Pressure setting or else the pump will just keep pumping forever. Now when I set it to anything but the lowest setting it keeps trying to pump. I know it’s not due to a leak because I have a pipe shutoff valve right after the pump outlet and when its closed it still thinks it needs to put more pressure. Once it change it to the lowest setting it finally realizes the pressure has been meet and it stops pumping. But now I have to deal with staying in the lowest pressure setting. It used to not be like this. Not ideal at all since water barely drips through the faucets and showers.

                                  Installed and working well. I’m boosting well pressure on a building that is up hill from the pump and not getting adequate pressure all the time. I have the booster set so the low is about 50 psi and the high is about 70psi (from fluctuations in the pressure feeding it). It’s a huge improvement from before. I hard plumbed it with copper lines as noise isn’t an issue for me although I still think it’s pretty quiet.
