Doing the bathroom shortly and because of our relatively shitty water
pressure, I'm going to fit a power shower. I'm considering "splashing
out" (excuse the pun) on a Maelstrom 80 power shower kit, which gives
2.3 bar pressure. They do cheaper versions which only give 1.3 bar. My
question is: is it worth the expense of getting the more powerful
version? I don't know what 2.3 bar vs 1.3 bar showers feel like. The
only power shower I have routinely used is at my parents' house: with
that one, if you are not careful, you could inadvertently give yourself
an enema! Aside from this risk, I do like the idea of a powerful shower
and I'm wondering whether 1.3bar will feel too "girle" : ). Any comments
from those with experience?
I trust you will be running it from a hot water tank rather than trying
to suck it through a combi. boiler.
Check the l/min and assess how long it will take so suck your water tank
dry. Then decide if you can have a full shower in the 3 minutes (or
whatever your tank will last) or whether the 7 minutes for the lower
power option is more suitable.
(figures base hypothetically on the rule of thin air)
Also note how many people will want to shower in quick succession.
because you'll be limited to luxe warm water for the folks that follow
I think mine was a 1.3 bar one and it was excellent (compared to
domestic water pressure)
