    it is bigger and seems more robust than the old one. the cut out pressure is 15 psi/1bar does that mean the system operates at less pressure is that a good thing?

    It will only make a difference to the shower. If it was anaemic to start with, you might prefer a higher pressure.

    The normal taps won't notice. Although if you normally get bangs when you turn off the taps, this will improve.

    If you got the flow rate the pressure doesn`t matter that much, the shower should be the same
