4 ltr per min - what ?? what the shower needs or what you boiler produces ??

Quick answers wanted but not enough info given.
4 ltr per min will not give a good shower.

Thermostatic showers are better than electric ones - Mira are the best shower manufacturer (in my opinion).

I've just paid £399 for my shower - triton are cheap, you get what you pay for.
