SWMBO has just given me my project for next spring - revamp the
bathroom, she has already selected the suite she wants.
Now me and the kids have showers (over the bath at the mo) but she
prefers a bath so I want a fitted shower cubicle
The only place I can fit a separate shower is in the corner where the
airing cupboard is with the hot water tank.
I have nowhere else I can put the tank so I was thinking of a combi
boiler system for the rads and hot water.
I am sure lots of you have experience of these but I have a few questions.
At present I have a 20 year old Wickes boiler 45k btu(works fine apart
from replacing the pilot stat every few years) on a Y plan system, this
is hung on the wall in the kitchen, would a combi be a fairly straight
The present shower over the bath is a pumped system, can the pump be
dispensed with when using a combi (understand combi's use mains
pressure, mine is ok but with hard water)
The loft tank only feeds the hot water cylinder and the power shower,
all cold taps, appliances and WC's are mains fed
Combi(condensing) boilers used to have a bad reputation for failing, has
this improved on recent models?
