Use electric off peak to heat the water. Probably better to have the cylinder upright if space allows. Take individual 12.5mm feeds off both 18mm h&c supplies to each shower. No need for a 3 phase supply. You will probably need to install fans to each shower for ventilation to prevent condensation problems.... Read More
