What is Low to Mains Pressure System Upgrade?

If you’ve got an old low pressure hot water cylinder system and you’re ready to upgrade to mains pressure, Cylinder Direct can help select the best cylinder for your lifestyle and budget.

Upgrading to mains make sense if you want stronger hot water pressure in your home. You’ll immediately notice the difference, increasing your hot water pressure from around 75kpa to up to 500kpa of pressure.

Your showers will feel better – and you’ll probably be able to shorten shower times (great if you have teenagers in the house!).

If you’re renovating a bathroom or kitchen, it’s almost essential that you swap over from low pressure to mains. Modern tapware and mixers won’t work properly on a low pressure system, and it’s becoming harder to find specific lower pressure mixers (using mains pressure mixers on a lower pressure system actually makes the flow worse).

If you’re thinking of renovating, give us a call – we’re always happy to advise before you start any project.

We have a range of mains pressure cylinders, varying in size and features, from our trusted brands Rheem and Rinnai.
