Shower Pump Query
Does anyone know of any shower pump that can be fitted to the mains water? Thanks in advance Danny:)

I have no idea what you're asking. Can you phrase it in a different way?

My existing shower pump is plumbed direct to the mains cold water resulting in it blowing a seal because of the presure. It should be fed via the header tank in the attic (gravity fed), so instead of re-plumbing the whole lot, is there a pump that can take the presure of the mains water!!! Hope thats a little better:thumbup:

If you have water main pressure that is too high you should be able to get a pressure reduction device. I've never installed one so can't help with details but I know that they are needed in some areas.

I'm confused as to why you need a pump on the shower if you have high (or normal) water pressure? And why the hot water would be gravity fed rather than fed by the water pressure?

This sounds like it might not be a U.S. location and I'm not familiar with what systems are used outside the U.S. but would be interested to hear about it.

Would it not be less expensive just to install a coldwater tank and run your shower pumps from that?
