It's not a pumped shower is it?  They ideally want their own supply so there isn't a risk of them sucking in air when you open a tap

Thanks for that, was not looking forward to draining tank and fitting another supply.
Will take your advise, cheers.

Should be ok to take it from the existing, provided they are both the same pressure/source

Cold supply from tank
Jan 3rd, 2018, 3:46pm
 
We are planning to put a mixer/shower tap on our bath, for guests to use as shower from time to time. We already have a separate cold supply off tank to a separate shower.
My question is, is it ok to tee into the separate shower supply for the cold feed to bath mixer tap, or do I need to take another supply from tank purly for the bath mixer?
