Have a shared water supply (live in a maisonette) with combi boiler but shower (thermostatic mixer) hot water pressure extremely low, how can we remedy it? Replace it with an electric one?

  1. check if the shower head is clogged with limestone
  2. check if the mixer is clogged (usually only hot supply gets clogged)
  3. check that the combi isn't clogged: get a bucket, get a watch, weight it empty, go to another tap (served by the same boiler), open hot water at maximum heat and maximum flow, fill the bucket for exactly 60 seconds. If the bucket gained less than 6 kilos, the combi heat exchanger got clogged and you have to call the assistance. You'll have to pay about £150 to clean it up.
  4. In winter hot water flow is usually reduced due to reduced mains temperature. (But usually it shouldn't be too noticeable)
