I have an indirect system fitted but have a low pressure problem

Resolved Question:

I have an indirect system fitted but have a low pressure problem on the hot water supply to the taps, more so upstairs than down, I understand that a small pump can be fitted to cure this problem, would the pump be fitted before or after the vent pipe to the cold tank also could you recommend a suitable (and quiet) pump?

A single impellar pump fitted to the hot water draw off down at low level would probably be best
