If you’ve already got hot and cold up there I’d use that, for an electric shower you’d have to run a 10mm(I think) cable directly from your consumer unit to the shower, causing big disruption to you home not to mention the cost.Posted 5 years ago
Money might be better spent on a more powerfull combi( you don’t say how old it is).jonbaMember
Might have a play later and see what happens with the pressure when I turn various things on. I’ll check the boiler too. It isn’t that old…
Cold pressure is very good but it will drop when one shower is on anyway. Thermostat taps will stop people getting scalded.
Not too worried about the electrics side as we are doing other work and planning to decorate the hall anyway.Posted 5 years agojonbaMember
Looking at having an extra bathroom put in. It will be on the 2nd floor/attic. We currently have a sink up there and the water pressure looks good enough both hot and cold in my unqualified opinion. We have a combi boiler. I’m concerned that if someone is using the shower downstairs then it might not be so good.
Would you recommend running it off the combi hot supply or just putting in an electric shower off the cold supply. We’ll have a sink so there will be hot water going up anyway.
Is there a “norm” for this type of thing? Anyone got experience?Posted 5 years ago
