Hot water


Postby gymark2002 » Fri Apr 13, 2007 9:20 pm

Hello,

Is it possible to run a pipe off of the Hot water tank that goes up into the Loft along and then back down again?
The reason I ask is I am putting in a Mixer shower and I already have a Cold water supply coming from the ceiling on the outside of the wall so I want to match it by running the Hot pipe along side it.
If this is possible can I take run off of where the over comes up, will turning on the shower create a vaccum and suck the water along the pipe?
Thanks for your help.
