Have a flat and the bath taps have a shower attachment. Problem being the pressure is not strong enough to enable it to work properly (next to nothing in hot water). The system (please excuse my ignorance) has a water tank directly above a hot water tank which is at the same height approx as the shower head when in use. A plumber reckons pipes need re-routing and shower pump and new shower, cost is £900! Basically I can't afford anythink like that. Can anyone suggest a much cheaper alternative please.
It is a small flat with pipes to kitchen and bathroom. The pipes to bath taps run through kitchen, the pipes (hot and cold) run parallel direct to bathroom sink and bath. What I do not understand is why say a Salamander pump could not be located in the kitchen to boost pressure in Bathroom and cost would be nothing like £900. Pipes would not need re-routing as the pipes are easily located and together. Am I missing something fundamental?
does the airing cupboard adjoin the bathroom wall, if so it would be much easier,a separate cold feed from the cold water tank is needed and a hot feed from the cylinder going into the pump then to the bath/shower taps,the cost will depend on what part of the country you live,
without seeing the job and the airing cupboard is next door to the bathroom I would say where I live the cost should be about £400 to £500
Yes the wall is adjoining the bathroom. Thank you for taking the time to reply to my questions it is much appreciated and I have a clearer picture as to what is needed. I live in Deleted, £400 to £500 I would be prepared to pay! But not the £900 he wants. Time for more quotes!
