You have a hot water cylinder with a cold water tank above.

These type of hot water cylinders on this page may be used with a gas boiler ...OR they may have no boiler at all and instead, use an electric element inside the cylinder to heat the water

If you have a hot water cylinder with a water tank above it  similar to the image then you may need a pump to make any bar or bath tap shower work. See the diagram at the bottom and determine by the layout if you need a shower pump fitted. 

 IF you are still not sure then give us a call we can usually tell you by phone or WhatsApp - 07914 008149


If you have a hot water cylinder with a built in tank on the top then we may be able to fit an inline pump depending on the size of that water tank sitting on top of the cylinder. But bear in mind that the small tank on top of the cylinder will give one decent shower before the hot water gets used up and needs re-heating. 

We usually find these type of cylinders in single storey dwellings such as flats or self contained bedsits. We can supply and fit either a bath tap filler shower +pump ......OR a bar shower + pump -  both shown above for only £499 must already have a functioning  hot water cylinder in place. This option works out considerably cheaper than installing an electric shower with wiring, switches, mcb's and certificates ! Whats more higher temperatures, better flow rate.


See this inline pump we tested ! It's a bit crude but demonstrates perfectly a minimum 6 litres per minute you can expect

from an hot water cylinder. Note the best you can expect from an electric shower is 3- 4 litres per minute max !


Already have a bath tap filler & shower - But the pressure drops to a dribble when you lift up the shower head ?

We can fit an inline pump under your bath to BOOST the pressure and give you a much improved flow rate from that shower head. Pump may include a ceiling pull cord switch to operate the pump.

If you have a large white cylinder then it is probably an un-vented pressurised hot water cylinder. NO pump is required with this type. You have a choice between a bath filler tap+ shower ...Or a bar shower or a mixer shower.


A conventional pump will only work under certain conditions however in most circumstances an inline pump will provide a shower.
