More about this water system
Mains pressure water is stored in a large, strengthened hot water tank (cylinder) – usually found in your airing cupboard. The hot water is heated either by an immersion heater fitted to the cylinder, or by a separate central heating boiler. You won’t have a cold water tank (cistern) in your loft. Because the water feeding your shower comes straight from your mains supply, you enjoy a forceful water flow.
‘Thermal store’ is a similar type of water system that also produces hot water at mains pressure.
For optimum water flow, choose a digital shower or mixer shower. Alternatively, if you prefer a gentler flow rate, or you’re looking for a lower cost option for a second/en-suite shower room, opt for an electric shower instead.
