Hi i currently use a woodburner with a back boiler to supply hot water and heating, my question is this:-

can any one please confirm that if i have a cylinder/tank to store the hot water then the pressure to the taps is govened by the hight of the store cold water in the tank in the loft and not the position of the cylinder/tank

the reason i ask this is because i would like to fit a larger woodburner in the basement and take the hotwater storage out of the bathroom and put it in the room above the basement so i can feed the inderect coil from the boiler below it and leave the tank in the loft and repipe to the new location of the cylinder/tank
