Shower Pump - Cylinder size

Postby smevers » Thu Aug 14, 2008 7:40 am

I want to install a shower pump and have a 42 x 16 cylinder. I am just wondering if it going to be big enough. I will just be running 1 shower. (plus usual bath & basins kitchen sink.)

you need to establish the maximum flow rate of your pump/shower. then decide how long you want your showers to last! that will dictate the size of your cylinder.
