What Shower to buy for Low Pressure Gravity Fed System

Postby hadleybox » Thu Oct 25, 2018 2:05 pm

Hi all, first time poster so apologies if the jargon / formatting is a bit rough.

Long story short we have a three-storey house with a low pressure, gravity fed system. We are currently doing out our en-suite on the middle floor and need to replace the previous Aqualisa Aquastream power shower.

Now what I can't figure out is whether we need to buy one of the £400 true 'power showers' or if a £150-200 'Thermostatic power shower' would do the job?

The models I am currently looking at are below: ... ower/66237 ... ower/4904j

I should mention that I'm not remotely fussed if I get pressure-washed in the shower I just need something that provides what I deem to be a standard comfortable shower experience! The people who owned the house before liked the finer things so if I could save a chunk and get the less-expensive option that would be a huge help.

Any and all advice welcome. Looking to hopefully buy a unit tomorrow :) Thanks in advance. Hadley
