Mixer shower mains pressure.

Postby john25 » Sun Nov 02, 2008 5:10 pm

I am thinking of fitting a thermostatic mixer shower and have a combi boiler. The ones I have looked at say that if the mains pressure exceeds 5 bar then I would need to fit a drop tight pressure reducing valve to the mains feed. Is there any easy way to check my mains water pressure?
