, I have an Ariston Contract STI 150 indirect non vented

Customer Question

Hi,
I have an Ariston Contract STI 150 indirect non vented tank in my loft, used in conjunction with a gas central heating boiler. My question being is this suitable to run a Grohe Grohtherm 3000 Cosmopolitan + Rainshower Pack 118323 with 310 Rainshower head shower ?
From the point of view of suitable pressure, and will the 150 litres capacity be suffiecient to have more than a couple of showers before the hot water is used up ?
Regards, Steve

OK, but does the same go for the flow rate, as shome of these shower heads, rated at 3 bar giving a flow rate of 14.5 - 16.5 litres / min. And as this shower set up is rather expensive, I didn't want to make the mistake of choosing a product that requires either, a larger tank, or an additional pump to boost the flow rate.

Expert:  Michael replied 2 years ago.
Hi Stephen, yes that flow rate is very high.
I would choose a flow in the shower head that will reduce that amount of water. They should have them available as well, it goes inside the shower head;-)

Thanks for that, are these known by a special term or name, so i get the right thing ?

Cheers Smile

So I won't have any problems whatsoever, in the compatability of the proposed shower purchase and my existing water / heating set up ?

I take this opportunity of thanking you for your reply's and advise.

Expert:  Michael replied 2 years ago.
Hi Steve, you should be fine and es the special term would be a shower head water saver if they make one for that model;-)
