Shower in a loft conversion

I have read loads of the other posts re this but the ones that best fit are now at least two years old & regulations/products do change.
We did our loft conversion in the early eighties. Bungalow to chalet. One bathroom only in new first floor.
At that time the only option was mains fed electric shower as although the cold tank is as high in the eaves as pos there is still not enough head.
Hard water area, end of a line of twenties built properties, low pressure from mains.

The shower has always been a bit off, weak, inclined to trip fail safe & freeze you if pressure drops or it overheats due to low flow, affected by any other tap in the house etc. It is now due for changing again, this is the second one, now over 15 years old.

Is there some sort of tank fed shower that can be pumped with this set up? There is a HW cylinder at 8" above floor level on the first floor opposite the bathroom.

Many thanks

A power shower that uses hot/cold supply from your cws/cylinder.
Ie triton as2000xt.

Or pumped electric shower supply from cws.
Ie mira elite st.

Thats just 2 examples.
Fit a tank fed electric shower with integrated pump, this will need a cold tanked connection only. As above Mira or triton do them for about 150 quid. Make sure tank is adequate size.
