    Default plumbing advice

    i have floored my loft to play my guitar. now thats winter is here i will be spending more time in the loft....


    the problem is...the huge cold water tank, its drowning out my tunes...

    so i wish to replace it.

    doesn't look too difficult....one inlet. two outlets and a overflow....

    my question is ...

    what's the smallest size that you are allowed to have ????

    do we have any plumbers on the site..............

    depends how big your hot water cylinder is and what the tank is feeding. generally most cylinders are 114 litres so the tank in the loft needs to be at least that or you will run out of water!!. you could fit a combi and get it away alltogether. i assume you are running a power shower or have mixer taps on your bath?

    i understand now...

    yes, its feeding a hot water cylinder downstairs and I will be putting in a power shower soon. so it will have to stay. I will box it in and sound proof it.

    thanks

    on the subject of power showers I don't have a 1 meter drop to the power shower unit so do i need a negative head as well...

    many thanks...
