    Square shower head to rose type.

    You can only increase the pressure if you uprate the pump. The only thing a different head will do is change the spray pattern and flow rate. Pete

    Combi boilers and pump overrun

    Base flooring advice for bathroom UFH and tiles

    I would advise using a decoupling membrane (Ditra) under the tiles as you will have movement and this allows for such.It also tanks the room which is handy in a shower room. Pete
