Expert advice on increasing water pressure in showers available to customers

We strongly believe that an informed customer is a happy customer, one of the UK's leading bathroom and kitchen plumbing retailers, is adding yet more expert advice to its online information bank, all with a view to giving customers the vital information they need to consider when purchasing and installing a product.

The new informative article is titled, "How to improve water pressure in your shower", and is a thorough guide of the considerations and actions to be taken to do just that.

Showers have become a vital part of the daily routine for millions of people around the country, and many will know how unsatisfactory it is to stand under a weak shower spray. The explanation for this is the spray head being too close to the water level in the cold water storage tank.

Traditionally, British water systems are connected to a cold water storage tank which is kept in the loft. These are known as gravity fed systems. They are low pressure, and rely on the height of the tank to provide water flow pressure for the house. Due to height restrictions imposed on where the tank can go, low pressure is often a resulting factor.

There are three basic ways to increase the pressure so that you can enjoy a powerful shower:

1. Installing a pressurised unvented cylinder, which involves removing the cold water storage tank which feeds the hot water cylinder and replacing it with a pressurised cylinder that takes its feed directly from the mains.

2. Fitting an independent electric shower with a cold water accumulator. This involves the fitting of an entirely independent instantaneous electric shower heater fed with cold water from the rising main.

3. Fitting a Booster Pump or Power Shower; ideal you wish to keep your gravity fed system and want a bath shower mixer or shower valve. This method is generally more expensive than fitting an electric shower and accumulator but when taking water from a gravity fed system is the only way to increase the pressure.
