    Fitting a 2nd power shower onto gravity system without fitting a pump

    should I cut in a 2nd feed direct from the cwsc and at the same height in the tank?
    Regards to the hot supply, as bath is being replaced by the shower, can this be used? Or would I need to run a separate feed, & should this be teed into the hot for shower 1?

    Both tanks to be increased in size

    Any advice would be much appreciated

    Will it make a noticeable difference between running the hot up to the shower, or coming up out of the cylinder, short run across attic then down with the cold feed?

    Approx 30cm, but I'm thinking of building it up higher

    If you can the more the better

    And with the hot run it down don't go into the loft if you can

    The hwc is going to be moved lower by about 2foot, do the pump & 3way need to be lower in height than the top coil feed, or just lower than the vent?
