    Agreed, nothing beats a nice hot shower with great pressure . I love the ones at my local gym which have great pressure and much better than my home one.

    The "Fire Hydrant"" shower head i purchased from eBay has now arrived so over the next week or 2 i will endeavour to replace the old head and see if it performs any miracle. I'm still waiting for another part to arrive for a damaged shower waste top for the same property.

    The "Fire Hydrant"" shower head definitely worked and has fixed the problem, the overall volume of spray seems much better ; i took before and after pics of the water flow and you can see their is a big difference. Tenant is happy too i rang him a few weeks later to check the verdict.

    Here is the original old one:

    You are right. I used to live in areas with low water pressure. What upset me the most is that the shower that should have been pleasant has become bad. Later, I had to deal with this problem with Google and then purchased a high pressure shower head according to other people's suggestions, the problem has been solved.

    Methven do a venturi shower mixer. My plumber says only one for low pressure, also make sure basin mixers have large flexi hoses as it makes a huge difference
