Morning All,
Just wondering if anyone has the solution to my shower enigma!
I'm running on a combi boiler (28 lt Worcester CDI) downstairs in the kitchen, however the bathroom is upstairs and im concerned about getting the right pressure to it. I also want the shower to be thermostatic regulated.
I understand that there are now specific showers set up for these circumstances...Could anyone be so kind to give me a headsup??

Cheers

As the combi is run from mains pressure any mixer shower should be suitable you can get mixers with or without temp regulators, I myself have a combi in the kitchen and bathroom directly above this until recently had a mixer with a regulator in, it worked great. Now after re-doing the bathroom I have one without a regulator which means apart form have to do the usual in the shower I have to carefuly piss about so it doesn't go freezing on me!

This will teach me to go for style over function!
