Water Supply Help Needed for En-Suite in Loft Conversion

Postby den1987 » Fri Sep 29, 2017 9:39 pm

I have recently had an en-suite installed in the loft/second floor of a Victorian terrace by a bathroom fitter who has gone awol.

Now the en-suite is seemed to be working fine at first, but we’ve now come to realise that when the main bathroom taps (1st floor) are switched on the water flow to the en-suite (2nd floor) becomes interrupted. During this time, no water comes out of the sink or shower in the ensuite at all.

I have been in touch with another plumber who has suggested a water pump as he believes there may be an issue with water pressure. However, he isn’t confident it will work as he has only ever fitted one before. I’d be happy to pay the £360 if I was sure it was going to work but would like to know if anyone has any experience with this?

Things I should mention about the set up:

- The boiler is a combi boiler in the kitchen on the ground floor. Ideal Independent C24
- In order to get the water in to the loft en-suite the pipes have been connected underneath the first floor bathroom sink. – I have attached a pic.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
