Pressure Pump for new Shower to Replace old Electric one

Postby Claugiam » Tue Oct 17, 2017 8:49 pm

Hi. So here's the situation..

About to re-do my old bathroom and would really, really like to remove the old electric shower and replace it with a 'proper' shower, with good pressure and the taps attached to the wall.

Now - in my flat (built 25 years ago) there's an airing cupboard which stores a large tank, and above it a smaller, rectangular black water box. No gas in the flat, just electrics. No central heating, either.

I am told that the only way for me to have good water pressure in the shower is to install a pressure pump, but I am also told that this would be very inconvenient for me and the neighbours, due to noise and vibrations.

Could anyone advise if there is any alternative to pressure pumps, which doesn't cost thousands of £££ like a combi boiler would (which I don't think I could install anyway as there's no gas in the flat?).

Thanks all a million.
