Hello all,

Fitting an electric shower, h&c from vented cylinder & cwsc, however, the cwsc for the cylinder is 90 litres but there is another cwsc which is huge but it’s about 50cm higher than the one feeding the cylinder I intend to take the hot feed from, question is will this small difference in height effect the operation of said shower, personally I think it’ll still work but wondered if anyone else had experienced this?

Cheers

The distances are within the criteria of the MI, to use gravity you can pee faster!

You could use pump on cold and install electric shower or add pump to hot as well and use thermostat shower.

Height won't be an issue but... taking the cold feed from the smaller tank may be., a power shower will deliver 12/16 litres a minute so can empty a small header header tank if the recovery rate isn't good (more water coming out than going in)

Hi chaps,
Thanks for all inputs! But it has always been a bit problematic to find a solution to this, anyhow, my concern was the height difference between the two cwsc, t’is a bit awkward as it’s a HMO and has been “doctored” over the years, as using hot water heated by another tenant from the huge cwsc would not be fair to heat another tenants shower, anyhow, as Razor has commented my concern was the slight pressure difference but I think I’ll give my plan a whirl (with confidence from comments on here) & if goes pear shaped…. It’ll be a nightmare but I’ll have to sort it! I’ll be in touch so other folk can be aware
cheers for all comments :} 
