    TURN CAPS LOCK OFF.

    Measure the water pressure with a gauge, £10
    Check the requirement Flow for the showering thing. You will only get about 10 litres/minute from your combi.

    The shower will only work if all the other taps are shut, probably, so unless the pressure'/flow resistance is awful it won't make much difference where you get it from.
