Hot water pressure pump installed.

Postby pbeer » Mon Apr 07, 2008 9:51 am

My house is split-level with the living area, kitchen and master bedroom/bathroom upstairs. The remaining bedrooms and bathroom are downstairs including the hot water tank.
I’ve got a shower pump installed in my upstairs bathroom that takes some coaxing to obtain the pressure. My rational behind this is the fact that by hot water tank is downstairs. I’ve also got very poor hot water pressure in the upstairs kitchen.
I was wondering if I installed another pump in the hot water line that feeds the whole house would solve the problem. But I also have concerns if I do this and I use the shower upstairs which also as a pump if this would create over pressurisation? Appreciate your thoughts.
