    I'm going to install one of following thermostatic shower in my gravity fed system:

    I've got 96 litres cylinder but have no idea what's the size of the loft tank. Builder said you'll need 1.8 bar pump, is that a right suggestion?

    If yes could someone suggest both hot/cold water pump within £150? We don't have high usage i.e. just me, wife and a 2 year old.

    Also do you think after this setup we'll be able to take 15-20 mins shower?

    Thanks,
    Faraz

    £150 for a shower booster pump?

    Good luck on that one.

    try toolstation, don't know why your builder suggested 1.8 bar-1.5 is enough. use twin impeller pump with cold coming from the hot water header tank. should give you plenty.
