I have just done up my bathroom only to find that the modern mixer taps
cause an extremely low flow rate.
The base of my hot water tank is actually about 12" lower than the taps...
and it is a tall tank with a small header tank built in above.
There is insufficient height in my loft to relocate any header tank, and I
don't really want to have to install a combi boiler just to drive mixer
taps! I was wondering about using some sort of pressure activated pump.
If I installed a pump on the hot water outlet from the tank, this would give
all the taps in the house a huge performance increase. I assume it is
possible to get a pump that is automatically activated by sensing water
Does anyone have any comments? suggestions? indeed, is this possible at all?
System is a conventional and vented... OH and can someone answer why it is
that here in the UK these junky (sh*ty) systems are common as opposed to
much better systems on the continent/USA ??? why do we hold on to bleedin
convention in this country even when its inferior??? grr </rant>
