Need help in deciding how to increase water flow in showers
I have a standard bolier - hot water cylinder water system with a pump fitted to one shower in an en-suite. I want to increase the water flow / pressure in my other shower in th main bathroom, which is gravity based (shower is on the same floor as hot water cylinder)
I've been thinking about getting a pump for the other shower but recently the pump in our ensuite shower is not switching off when turning the shower off, and is making a lot more noise then before.
My dilemma is whether I should just get the pump replaced and stick with adding a new pump for the main bathroom, or invest in a new unvented cylinder (megaflo) ?
Only you can decide but to help, have you thought of having a new shower pump and connecting both showers to the same pump.

I would buy a new pump and connect both showers to it which should work fine
