I am just about to move, but as always her who must be obeyed! want a new bathroom amd kitchen fitted. I don't pretend to a be a knowledge when it comes to plumbing. (electrics and plastering/dry-lining more my thing)
To the question;
My new house has combi (worchester ge) looks like it's knocking on in years. But seems to work fine.
Regarding the water presure, how would I find out if it was compatible with lovely new bath with shower attachment taps and lovely new shower? Not choose shower yet! well not really choose anything at all! like I said her who must be, has picked everything (like they do)
Joking apart (but it's true)
whirlpool bath with bath filler taps and a shower attachment on. Plus hopefull thermostatic shower.
Advise will be thankfully taken, before I spend money on something daft!
I have a similar question. I've bought a Mira Combiflow pressure balancing shower and the manual says that the maintained pressure needs to be between 1 bar and 5 bar and that the static pressure must be no more than 10 bar. I expect to be able to measure static pressure easily enough using a standard pressure gauge, but where can I get a gauge to measure maintained pressure?
many bathroom fittings also come with required flow rate info, just get a bucket, turn on the cold tap and let it run into the bucket for a minute and see how much you get (usually somewhere between 8 and 12 litres, 8 litres low pressure, 12 litres is good)
