Pres­sure

Matamata Chronicle - - Heating -

Low-pres­sure cylin­ders are com­mon in New Zealand and work well in most sit­u­a­tions.

High-pres­sure cylin­ders are more ex­pen­sive, give faster flow and al­low you to use a wider range of taps.

But this in­creases the wa­ter and en­ergy used. High pres­sure sys­tems can be made more efficient by us­ing wa­ter efficient show­ers and taps.

These have lower wa­ter flow than stan­dard taps and fit­tings but are de­signed to de­liver the wa­ter ef­fec­tively and com­fort­ably. High flow show­ers do not al­ways equate to bet­ter show­ers.

There are some low-pres­sure cylin­ders which give you high-pres­sure de­liv­ery. These are called in­di­rect mains pres­sure cylin­ders. They are of­ten op­er­ated at high tem­per­a­tures, so stand­ing losses can be high.
