Is is possible to take a 'tee' from the cold water feed that supplies the hot water tank? The pipe to the the tank is 22mm plastic. Can I use a reducing tee to supply the cold side of a shower pump?

No, it`s gotta be from the cold storage tank .and lower than the one to the that if tank runs dry hot goes first and don`t scald it in pushfit plastic :idea:
Thanks again Nige!

Can I tee off a cold supply (cistern fed) that goes to another shower? I'm eventually going to be getting rid of the older shower anyway.

Can I tee off the hot supply coming from the top of the H/W tank?

Is a Surrey flange easy to fit? I'm a DIY-er not a plumber (obviously!)

Yes ,it screws into the top of the hot water cylinder.......heat up the old fittings if they won`t unscrew.instructions on the packaging. ;)
