We've just hooked up our indoor shower to our gravity fed water system. Although there is plenty of flow with our approx. 20' of head the standard 1/2" shower riser is not allowing enough pressure to get a decent flow from the shower head (tub faucet is fine). Any experience with booster systems like the UK "power shower" pumps that are available in the US or any other solutions that have worked for anyone?
Thanks in advance! judy
One could easily make a "rain" head from sheet copper designed for desired volume, and use a valve with chain above so that water is not wasted.
Conclusion- Pressure and Volume are tradeoffs- with a gravity system you forsake pressure and thereby necessitate more volume, which then should be regulated by duration.
