Hi, my name is***** have been in the plumbing & heating trade for approximately 15 years. I will be helping you today. Hi with a combi boiler you are not allowed a pump so that rules that out.
You could have an electric shower but the only benefit to this is if your boiler breaks down you still have hot water.
If the water pressure coming from the hot tap is ok for you I would suggest a mixer shower is your best option.
there are again hundreds to choose from but its only style and quality you are choosing.
