hello every one now this is my first post so try to be nice
the problem i have is poor hot water pressure to the bath and the basin in the bathroom now the hot water comes from the hot water cylender fed by a cold water header tank the tanks are on the same floor as the bathroom.
the header tank is only about five foot above floor height with the hot water tank under it.Now this house is a three storey town house bathroom on the top floor, the hot water pressure in the kitchen is fine the kichen being on the second floor and the pressure to the ground floor toilet basin is fine to i cant move the header tank up into the loft as its to small can anyone tell me if i can pump just the hot water hope this makes sence
please excuse the spelling

thanks obe1

Changing from tank- to mains-fed hot water is not a cheap or simple prospect, so I wouldn't recommend going down that road.

To answer your question about pumping, yes you can do that. The best position for the pump is likely to be at the base of the cylinder. You can simply cut into your hot output from the cylinder and route the pipework to the pump.

Talk to Stuart Turner tech dept about which pump will suit your requirements. They're helpful and straighforward with their advice. If you to double check what they tell you then post back here for advice.
