plumbing help?

562 Views 8 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Cyngbaeld
I want to take out the faucet/spout in the kitchen and use a cistern pump for the spout. I want to be able to use the pump as a pump when the power is off and otherwise use faucets for hot and cold and have hot and cold lines but have the water come thru the pump from the cistern.

Possible? Not possible? Why or why not and if yes then how?

If you run your water through the pump body after your mixing valve, it's going to take a long time for the water temp to change when you adjust the valve and I think you'd find it quite annoying. Like oh water is too cold, turn on some hot, in 5 seconds the temp starts to change, in 10 seconds it gets too hot, turn the hot back down agian, repeat this process. If you were going to only use cold water this wouldn't be an issue and I could see it working well.
