If it's not already installed, i.e. if "i have 20meters of 6 mm" means that you have it in a coil and are considering using that, and not that you have an existing circuit of 20m of 6mm˛, then don't f*** about - install 10mm˛ from the outset as that will support a more powerful shower in the future.
