Customer reply replied 7 months ago
No. Don’t know how to say that but Instead of having the tank and waiting for the hot water to be ready then having the water getting hot straight on demand from the boiler straight to the tap and shower
Plumber: Andrew Smith, Construction Worker replied 7 months ago
Only from a combination boiler or a pressurised cylinder

I got one already. I just want to know how to get continuously hot water without a tank. I can send you pics if that can help
Plumber: Andrew Smith, Construction Worker replied 7 months ago
Ok.
Just wondered why you had a tank fed shower unless your cold water pressure is quite low?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
No i have hot & cold water pressure high
Plumber: Andrew Smith, Construction Worker replied 7 months ago
Ok, if you link the tank in to the tank out then you will already have a cold feed to the shower position.
If you can then run a 15mm hit feed there as well then you can fit any thermostatic bar mixer shower starting from about £45

With this tank 2/3 people can have shower then after that. O hot water until it fill up for like 1 hour. How can i get someone to make hot water from boiler straight to the shower continuously without filling the tank and have only 2 people every full tank.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Using the shower
Plumber: Andrew Smith, Construction Worker replied 7 months ago

The make and model of your boiler, this will decide how fast it can heat the water up instantaneously
