Hi all. Without going into long-winded explanations what I would like to know is- can I connect the hot supply from a standard vented cylinder
together with the cold mains supply into a shower mixer. I know that I can only control the volume and not the pressure by fitting a valve in the line I.am wondering if the higher pressure of the cold can be compensated within the showers mixing control. Thanks

Posts #9 & #10 should answer your query but the hot mixed flowrate will be quite poor as its dependent on the very low pressure from the gravity supplied HW cylinder.
