Two shower heads in one shower
« on: May 09, 2010, 08:56:11 PM »
Hi we are looking to install a larger shower with 2 shower heads, the bathroom company's we have had round have mentioned we would need to upgrade our water pressure tank
We currently have a tank labelled -180l low pressure tank with working height of 7.6metres. our water pressure cause's us no problems at the moment
What are our options/costs on achieving the 2 heads?
Would changing to gas be a better option?

Thanks

Problem is, because you've got low pressure, if you open both shower heads, chances are, it'll reduce the quality of your shower. To get an idea, put your current shower on, after which, open up a few other taps in the house. You'll have pressure and temperature fluctuations in the shower.

This will never work adequately with a low pressure cylinder. You will need to upgrade to a mains pressure cylinder and also probably increase the capacity of it too.
