If you’re looking to massively boost your home’s water pressure, then you’ve come
to the right place. Our Torrent kit will give you fantastic water pressure (flow)
throughout your home. It should be ensured that your hot water cylinder is a fast-recovery
type (heats up again quickly), so your heating system needs to be adequate. This
then is ideally suited to where the boiler is adequate for your needs, but your water
pressure (flow) is low. Mains water pressure in some areas is particularly poor,
and won’t cope with more than two people using a tap at the same time. The use of
24-hour heating of the hot water is essential. This means that your hot water is
always ready, and doesn’t have to compete with central heating - in the morning,
for example. A start point is a 160-litre cylinder, but for larger families, we recommend
1. Supply and install of a new hot water cylinder sized to your needs.
2. Supply and install of a boost-pump system.
In some circumstances, your current cold water tank (in your loft) can remain, though
we would advise you replace it.
We STRONGLY recommend the installation of a water softener or LimeStop limescale
Sorry, we only work in the RG postcode area.
What will it cost?
Obviously it all depends on your requirements. Our Torrent system starts from £1,995.
This will supply pump-boosted hot and cold water throughout your home...
162 litre hot water cylinder - £385.00
40-litre per-minute pump - £576.00
All materials - £234.00
Labour - two persons, two days - £800.00
Please note that the above is a guide only. We cannot know what your current layout
is and how it can be adapted to accommodate the installation, but £1,995 is a minimum.
This then is similar in price to a typical thermal store or heat bank cylinder, but
without the disadvantages of those two, such as reliance on mains pressure, regular
servicing, safety issues, and no store of water.

With regard to thermal store systems, the provided hot water flow depends entirely
on your mains pressure supply. We can assess your flow free of charge. 20 litres
per minute is recommended by us to be sufficient for a considerable hot water supply
without being unnecessarily wasteful. Systems are limited at 3 bar pressure. If you
require excellent pressure (flow) then opt for a Torrent system. If you currently
don’t have a mains-pressure cylinder installed, and your current pipes are fed by
a water tank in the loft-space, they would be subject to a 3-bar pressure when converted
to carry mains-pressure water. We cannot be held liable for their integrity. Full
limescale protection can be provided by a Scalgon LimeStop TS at £115 - please see
www.limestop.co.uk. This will give you GUARANTEED and unrivalled limescale protection
for two years. After that time it should be replaced - current price £105. Capacity
of mains-pressure thermal store hot water system in prices quoted is 160 litres.
You may require overflow protection (extra cost) if your current heater is not protected,
but this is your choice. Alternatively, purchase a water-leak detector for less than
£10 together with a drip tray. Replacement of wet gas heating system INCLUDES limescale
and sludge protection, but excludes cost of gas engineer to cut off your gas supply.
We back up our installation with a 3-year guarantee and 24-hour call-out protection.
An annual check is required to validate the manufacturer’s 10-year guarantee on AA
thermal store cylinders. A deposit of 50% is required five days before work commences
– balance on completion. Free, no obligation quotations provided. If you choose us,
