The water pressure in our bungalow is inadequate for a shower and so I would like to fit a Stuart Turner Showermate eco Pump (1.5 bar). The maximum flow is rated at 32 litres per min.
As I live alone, there is no problem with water being drawn from elsewhere in the building when I am using the shower.

The two questions I have concern the cold water tank in the loft.
1. What size would be adequate for this system?
2. Can I mate two or more smallish tanks together as the loft access is only 460 x 460mm, too small I think for a coffin tank. How would I plumb together 3 15-25 litre cold water tanks?

Just how flexible are these round tanks, as I do have limited space above hatch also
it will fold down enough to get through your hatch, someone above pulling and you below pushing.

if you have a problem getting it through, give the tank a wee warm up with a hair drier ;)
