At what height above outlet would a storage tank be needed to give a decent shower?

    For every 32 feet of elevation the ground water pressure rises 15 psig. Most people believe you need a minimum of 30 psig so to do this, the tower needs to be 64 feet above the highest water tap.

    Basically (gleaned from that web site):

    - any height where the tank-tap is above outlet will allow water to flow

    - but for a shower, minimum ~22 m (~70 ft) from height of tank-tap to level of shower "floor"

    - ideally ~30 m (~100 ft) from tank-tap to floor, will provide pressure roughly identical to typical house water pressure

      Yeah, I know. You might want to consider a different sort of "shower", or baths, when the regular water "goes out".
