    I've a boxed in Mira 723 currently fed by an immersion header cold water tank and I want to know whether I can change this to take feeds at mains or near mains pressure.

    I got this from the net http://homepage.ntlworld.com/patrick.beane/mira723maintenance.pdf but I'm no expert.

    The makers http://www.mirashowers-store.co.uk/categories/parts-and-accessories/spare-parts.aspx seem to have a high and low pressure model but would that be what I am talking about ?

    Don't really want to and can't justify spending another £2/300 on this old shower to be honest. If it cannot take it, then the job will have to wait for another time.

    LP cartridge can work on higher pressures as long as the cartridge is in good working order, has been serviced and pressures are fairly evenly balanced.

    Not sure about age or service history but I was considering a pressure equalising valve like this http://www.plumbingsuppliesandfittings.co.uk/Water_pressure_equalising_valve--product--80.html if there was any discernible pressure difference between the hot and cold water supply (which I think there might be).

    There aren't any non return valves currently in this pipework and this would solve that issue as well.
