shower systems, including mains fed 'combi' units but electric showers or
multi jet panels. I have a gravity fed shower that is boosted by a pump.
If I connect this device will the restiction eventually damage the pump due
to the device creating back pressure?
Most shower heads will restrict water flow somewhat, so I don't think it
should damage the pump. The flow from my shower with this unit fitted still
seems pretty strong, but I am not using a pump, just mains pressure.
Have you done the test with the measured packaging bag to check your flow?
If it is the same as the one supplied to me, it does not make it clear if
the shower head has to be placed in the bag and measured along with the
water, as that is what the diagram seems to suggest. When I fitted mine, it
leaked from the joints, so I replaced the washers, then I got bored and read
the instructions and it mentioned that they are fibre washers, and will
expand to seal any slight leaks, so I refitted the originals and they were
