    Hey there
    Need to get a new boiler.
    I live in a 3 bed flat shower top floor, bathroom lower floor.
    And we've got an old Glowworm Xtramax storage combi, says that the flow rate is 11 l/min.
    The shower up top is a little weak as is, so I just want to make sure any new boiler will do the trick.
    If I get a simple combi like a 32cdi with flow rate of 11 l / min or greater .... am I sorted ?

    Would hate to find that the shower fails after installation of the boiler !!!
    Thanks for any help.

    Downstairs shower is powerful.
    Upstairs shower is weak and was installed with two shower heads side by side, previous owner was Dr Nookie !!!
    Anyway, running both showers simultaneousy or a shower and kitchen tap, the reduced flow can be felt but only a little. That's the current.

    Check dynamic flow rates and pressure before doing anything else
