We have low pressure from the main, 1.5-2 Bar at 25-50 litres/min. By the time it runs through old pipe into house this flow drops to 5 litres/min at kitchen tap(suspect old pipe from main to house?!)
At the moment we have one shower than runs with a noisy booster pump
We want to add a further shower & change our very old boiler
So, the options I think we have are:
Either, try & increase water pressure. Perhaps change old water pipe so that we are getting good flow rate (25 litres/min+) into house at 1.5-2 Bar then change boiler & perhaps use megaflow and do away with need for booster pumps. Is this a viable solution with this water pressure(i.e. using megaflow)? Is there another way?
Or, option 2 would be to install larger booster pump that could handle 2 showers, but we are trying to avoid this noisy solution if at all possible with the water pressure we have
