We offer industry help and advice on the perfect shower to install, which will best suit your existing water supply system. We can also install shower screens and enclosures at competitive prices.
With a variety of showers to take into consideration, it can be a difficult decision to make, without getting professional help and advice first.
There are three main types of shower: electric, mixer and power. They all have their pros and cons, but the type of shower that will work best for you depends to some extent on your existing water supply system. Most homes have a ‘low pressure’ or gravity-fed system, with either a combination boiler or hot and cold water storage tanks. However, ‘high pressure’ systems, where hot water is stored under high pressure, are today becoming more common.
We can also install shower enclosures and shower screens at competitive prices.
These are independent on the water supply system and can be used in any home. The shower heats the water itself so there’s no need to switch on your main hot water supply, and the running costs are low. Electric showers tend to have a reduced flow rate, making them vulnerable to limescale, particularly in hard water areas.
This type of shower mixes hot water from your combi boiler or immersion heater with cold water from the mains and they usually have a better flow rate than electric showers. There are different versions for high and low pressure systems. Thermostatic controls are available to prevent you getting scalded if someone turns on a tap elsewhere in the house.
With an integrated pump that gives a huge improvement in flow, power showers use more water and are more expensive than electric or mixer showers. This type of shower is highly recommended for low pressure systems but are also available for high pressure systems.
