Electric Shower - Which One?


zach

Recommended Posts

We will be needing a new electric shower in the near future and I was just wondering if anyone can give any pointers as to which to buy.

 

It will need a decent flow rate/KW etc. Not bothered about whistles and bells, just a decent quality shower. No option for power shower or the mixer type, just cold supply.

 

Also, any idea of install costs? All the pipe work and wiring is there.

 

Thanks.

Good point that I didn't know.

 

I know the shower cable was fitted when the electric hob wiring was installed. If you mean 10mm by how wide the cable is, it's easily that wide. Your comment does open up new questions though. It might be better if I get it checked properly.

I've had no problems with Mira showers. I had a Mira Sport Max 10.8KW .  Very good flow rate for an electric shower- but needs the thick cable.

I also have a Mira Sport Max 10.8Kw and fitted one for my mum and dad as well. Mine has run faultlessly for 13 years and mum and dad’s for 10 years.

 

Just about the best electric shower out there. I got mine for £120 from Screwfix in Rotherham but they are probably a bit more now. 👍

10mm cross sectional area of the live conductors. 10mm cable is about 17mm wide overall.
