Water Pressure Issues

Can’t get a decent shower in the morning?  Turn on one tap and all the rest stop?   Water pressure can be a real issue in London.

  • Many apartments are in home conversions with a shared mains
  • There is not enough space for a water tank
  • The Water Authority can reduce street pressure if pipes are weak
  • Loft extensions reduce water pressure again
  • Old gravity fed tank systems often do not have the pressure for today’s demands

MetroServe have extensive experience in solving these issues as it is a common issue for so many of our customers.

The good news is there are new methods of dealing with this depending on the nature of your situation.  For example

  • Mains water boost pumps are now possible (they were illegal until recently)
  • Accumulators that store mains pressure water for hot and cold use
  • Unvented cylinders (e.g. megaflow) incorporating pumped solutions
  • Larger combination boiler with built in reservoir
  • Or a combination of the above can provide a solution
