    Our mixer shower suffers from poor pressure.

    At times it's fine and at times it's barely dripping. You can sometimes solve the pressure issue by hanging the shower head down near the shower tray for a couple of minutes.

    Sometimes the pressure issues occur when it's colder than usual. Cold water tank in the loft, with a hot cylinder in the airing cupboard on the landing.

    Any advice would be most welcome.

    Don't believe so, think it's pressure fed.

    Not always, however, pressure has never been perfect. No works going on.

    sounds like you could do with a pump fitting, depending on site circumstances

    or maybe switch to an unvented system if your looking long term
