I am currently installing a new power shower.
140 litre Hot Tank in Bedroom
223 litre Cold Tank in loft
Shower in opposite corner of house to hot tank
Salamander RSP45 1.3bar pump to be mounted in loft on concrete slab
Mixer Shower Triton Warwick
Hot feed to pump 22mm approx 4m run from No Stop Essex Flange
Cold feed to pump 22mm approx 2.5m run
Hot/Cold feed to shower 15mm approx 9m run from pump.
I have two concerns:
1. Will the pump be able to push water for 9m and still deliver a
reasonable shower? Standard shower head not multi-function.
2. Will the noise of the pump propagate throughout the house. Or even
into my neighbours house as its in the loft not too far from the party
When I started this project I had no idea of the cost. Its just
exceeded the £1000 mark and I've not finished yet. If your thinking
of installing a power shower then below are the approx costs for each
Stone Resin Shower Tray £65
Mixer Shower £160
Shower Screen £330
50 Gallon Tank with Bye Law Kit/Connectors/Isolators £150
Stand for 50 Gallon Tank £50
Pipe / Essex Flange £40
Not cheap and I may not get a decent shower from it. You may already
have a 50 gallon tank. Not included is plaster / title adhesive /
grout / Sealant /
Cement / Exterior ply /
Screws / Solder etc...
Thanks in advance for comments,
