How to Choose the Correct Shower
When you are deciding what style of shower you require, you need to determine the type of water heating system you have installed in your home.
- Gravity-Fed Hot Water Systems
The usual configuration consists of a cold water storage tank in the loft and a hot water cylinder in the airing cupboard. This is the water supply traditionally installed in UK homes
- High Pressure Systems
Instantaneous gas water heater or combi boiler: Combination boilers are increasingley used in the UK, and a wall-mounted or floor-standing boiler heats the water as it is used.
- Unvented Systems
Hot water is stored in a large cylinder under pressure. This systerm has no requirement for a cold water storage tank
