    There are so many problems on here with pressure/flow through taps that I thought I'd seek your advice before buying.

    The bathroom basin mixer I want to buy stipulates "low pressure - min 0.2 bar". I understand that 0.1 bar is 3 feet of head from the bottom of the cold storage tank in the loft, and therefore I need 6 feet.

    My basin tap has 4" less than this - ie only 5ft 8" of head. Do you think the tap will work ok? (The hot and cold supply in the bathroom are BOTH via the header tank so the pressure will I think be balanced.)

    Very grateful for any help.

    should be ok

    IMO you wont notice the difference 4 inchs would make (though the lovely mrss CM may disagree :):):);) )
