I was wondering if anyone can advise me as to whether I can fit an electric pump to the mains water pipe with a combination boiler? In the summer in particular we have very low mains water pressure, to the point where our comination shower does not work, so thought I could fit a pump that I could start up when the pressure was too low?
[quote="htg engineer"]It is against water regulations to pump mains cold water.
Basically if there's any break in the pipework under ground expecially next to sewers etc you could be pulling waste/contaminated water into your drinking supply.
Thanks for this information, I wondered whether there was a restriction on this! Well sounds like we will have to put up with the occation morning when we cannot shower unless we go back to a conventional boiler and header tank.
