Evenin` all.

Ok. Here`s the scenario:

We were renting (privately) the detached house we now own. We knew we were going to buy; those who`ve seen my bio. will have an idea why we had to wait......

Anyway. Didn`t want to do anything TOO major, until we bought it. I was given a Rayburn coal fire/back boiler, and a few rads. At the time, I couldn`t sweat copper joints, but was fine with all the rest of the job.

So....We installed a system (2nd hand copper piping, rads, valves, DHW tank etc.) Kept us going until we bought the property.

So. 1st job - C.H./DHW & bathroom renovation.:--

Mrs KME likes a shower every day. I prefer a bath usually. I`m going to need a fairly big bath, cos I`m 6`7".

That knocks a combi boiler off the list then. Good for showers; rubbish for baths.

If I go with a standard boiler & tank, I need a shower pump to provide a decent flow rate on the shower.

What would YOU do in this situation?

Part 2 of the story tomorrow..............:)B)

Part 2. (Thanks for waiting special:p)

By the time we decide to do this; me can solder pipes. Primarily because my "friend" the plumber came in, all pipes cut, prepped, fittings cleaned & ready. Literally ALL he had to do was solder the joints. 5 hrs.
