I am constantly told by Persimmon Homes that I am the only one with a problem with the water pressure. The strange thing is that everyone else who complains about this is also told they are the only one! They do not want to fight a group, they would rather trample an individuals aspirations to own a quality home.
Persimmon Homes sent an "expert" from the company who installed all of the heating and water system in these houses to look at the problem. The company is Avonside Heating and Plumbing. He informed me that they were the biggest installer of heating in the UK and only work on new build properties. So consequently one of their biggest customers is Persimmon Homes. His report said there was no problem, but it confirmed my incoming pressure is 2bar - in my experience you should have 4-6bar. He never checked the shower problem and only confirmed the water pressure because I had a pressure guage set up already. He sat in my living room drinking coffee and complaining about Persimmon Homes being "too big for there boots" and that they think they are "untouchable".
It is worth pointing out that the manufacturers of my hot water system clearly state that "the hot water flow rate of the boilermate A-class is directly related to the adequacy of the cold water supply to the dwelling. This must be capable for providing for those services, which could be required to be supplied simultaneously......."
After this website was made Persimmon Homes have sent other experts to check this problem. It is now 18 months since I moved in and it is still the same.
Persimmon should be ashamed of the ordeals they put customers through, and now they have stopped building on all new sites due to a fall in profits of a quarter!
