Some taps need more pressure than others to flow at the same rate. A pressurised water heater system will provide enough water pressure for any of our taps. However, an unpressurised system may not. You will need to calculate the pressure before choosing a tap that has a minimum requirement – otherwise it might not work properly. To do this, measure how far the water tank is above the tap in metres and divide by 10. This gives the water pressure in bars. Remember that any bends or junctions in the pipework will reduce the pressure.
If you are not sure how to calculate your hot water pressure, ask your plumber. Water pressure can be increased by adding a separate water pump.
