Cold water shower pressure

Postby Showerpower » Sat Jan 19, 2008 2:29 pm


I have a newly fitted shower system in a loft conversion with stand alone hot water and cold water tanks with a Monsoon Negative 3.0 bar Twin pump and a Triton Thames Bar Mixer with Diverter shower. I like to have cold showers but when I go to just cold the pressure is very low. A hot shower is fantastic. I have been told that this is because it is only using 1.5 bars. It seems less than half the pressure to me. Can anyone give advice or help on making the shower more powerful on just cold
