Once we'd got the settings right and shower head at right height we were very pleased.
Delighted with this shower,lovely smart and stylish,good water flow lots of little extra features.
Reasons for purchase:
1) Mira Sport was a Which? 'best buy' in 2007 (when showers were last tested by them);
2) My Dad bought a Mira Sport Max last year and recommended it when our shower, which worked for 9 years, finally died.
We bought this latest model (9KW) with Airboost and I used it for the first time yesterday and tried all 4 settings - rain, rain plus, burst and storm, the latter being the setting I'll probably use the most, though it doesn't make good use of the lovely large showerhead.
I turned on the optional Airboost, but it was noisy (like a low pitched electric toothbrush) and made the showerhead vibrate slightly, so turned it off. Called the Customer careline to check if this was okay and the helpful lady checked (Airboost is very new) and was able to inform me that it was normal.
The Airboost technology may advance & improve in the future, but at the moment it's too new - for me at least - and I can't see myself using it much.
Despite the cons I've mentioned, I'm not disappointed in any way with this shower - as with anything new it takes time to get used to.
I bought this item to replace an obscenely expensive 'shiny' shower (over £500!) that my wife insisted on when we had our bathroom done a few years back and which proved to be one of my biggest wastes of money for both purchase cost and fixing defects (out of warranty of course).
The 'shiny' shower finally gave up the ghost completely a while back, but it took a while for my wife to get totally fed up with the kids traipsing in every morning to use our en-suite shower. Reached tipping point recently so time for a new shower...
Having done a load of research and having discovered to my horror that the 10.8kW 'shiny' shower the better half chose back then should have had specialist cabling (anything over 9.0kW needs >6mm core!) and none was ever fitted (nor were we advised in our naivete that it was needed), I came upon the Mira Sport Max 9.0kW with 'Airboost' technology.
The reviews were good in the on-line forums and a number of sites indicated it is the No. 1 selling shower in the UK. I can understand if that is true due to the key word above being 'Airboost'. The shower has a special fitting inside the hose that can pump air under pressure to the head and the water comes out with MUCH more power when the 'Airboost' is enabled, even though no more water is being pumped than with 'Airboost' disabled.
The guy that fitted it said 'Wow!' when he switched it on and said he would definitely be recommending it to his 'undecided' customers.
Very pleased with this purchase, with plumbworld handling of my order and delivery speed. This was the cheapest I could find on the Web at time of purchase and that was the 'standard' price, i.e. no promotional discounts.
Would definitely use plumbworld again.
Could not believe the power this shower actually has.Fabulous,fabulous, fabulous!! fab looking very sleek, modern looking shower.
I bought the Mira Sport Max to replace an old Mira Sport that had given 14 years of service before dying. It is very stylish with 4 spray patterns and the AirBoost function makes for an envigorating showering experience. All the family are happy, and the swift delivery from Plumbworld means I will recommend.
This was puchased as a replacement for a previous mira sport this lasted for 10 years this product was a straight swap cable and pipework fitted like adream all changed over in 40 mins max. works like a dream and used daily
Good looks a very good price I have checked prices with other
Company's and was surprised how much I saved!
This was bought to replace an older version of the mira sport that had given up (probably due to scaling, we live in a very high level hard water area, electric showers tend to last about 7 years, not only in our house, our neighbours also). This fitted perfectly to the existing pipe and electric fittings, in exactly the same place as the previous model so it was a dream to do a straight swap. We like the more modern design and the new shower head. Not so sure the air feature was worth paying extra for, it does increase the sensation of water pressure in the winter, but only a little and it's pretty noisy. All in all though, we are very satisfied and almost a year on its working perfectly with no apparent loss of flow yet (as happens as it scales up). Only one almost adult child left at home now, so hopefully this one will pay a little longer. ????
The best price out there for this shower by far. Customer service was great and product arrived on time as requested.
Shower was recommended and ticks all the boxes for us as a reliable, basic model.
Although I would have liked the 10.5 Kw unit it would have entailed installing a new 10mm cable, which was just impractical at the time. However this shower with the air boost technology is just as good a a standard 10.5 Kw shower. Fantastic, so pleased I went for the Max version and not just the standard one.
