How It Compares To The Competition

Mira Electric Showers Comparison - Bristan Joy
Thermostatic Stable Gauge

Precise temperature control

Standard showers can have hot temperature spikes when others in the house turn on taps or flush the toilet.

Thermostatic control means that this shower will hold its temperature steady at all times. It dynamically adjusts the hot and cold water offsetting the everyday changes in water pressure experienced in most family homes.

Bristan Joy Digital Display 2

Large digital display

To make sure you can always see what setting you're using Bristan have fitted the Joy electric shower with a really large digital display. You'll never have to worry about getting the wrong temperature again! 


Automatic shutdown

For a safer showering experience for all the family, this shower benefits from an innovative shutdown feature. This feature allows you to set a maximum temperature setting and an automatic shutdown will occur should the water temperature rise, saving you and your family from accidental scalding.

Bristan Joy warm up mode

Warm up mode

With a Joy shower you don’t need to worry about getting blasted by cold water because your shower isn’t up to temperature. It has a warm up mode which tells you when your shower is up to your ideal temperature. The on/off button indicates when your shower is ready by changing colour, saving you from a nasty shock.

Bristan Joy 15mm push-fit connection

15mm push fit connection

You can’t beat the ease of a push fit connection when it comes to plumbing and that’s exactly what the Bristan Joy electric shower has. Quicker installation is great for the installer and great for the homeowner. It’s a win win situation.



Multiple water & electrical entry points for flexible installation

Only a cold water supply required

Electric showers are by far the most convenient to install. They connect to a cold water supply only and not to your boiler, warming the water using an element inside the shower. So if you're worried about your brother, sister, partner or anybody else using all the hot water in the house then this electric shower is certainly for you. Because no matter how much you us it, it won't run out or let you down when it comes to heat.

Gainsborough Rub Clean Shower Head Nozzles

Rub Clean Shower Head Nozzles

These brilliant shower heads feature a rub clean spray plate to minimise the build-up of limescale. Limescale is a bathroom pest and can easily block things like shower heads, however with rub clean nozzles you can simply wipe this mess away to continue using your shower at full potential.

Aqualisa Optic Q Adjustable Rail

Adjustable shower rail

Installation of the riser rail is really easy with the adjustable mounts. You can retrofit your old shower riser rail holes meaning that messing with your tiles can be kept to a minimum.


8.5kW Shower

Not everyone loves a high pressure shower and that’s where an 8.5kW shower comes into it’s own. Providing less pressure than a 10.5kW or 9.5kW shower it uses less energy and therefore makes it cheaper to run!

The Bristan Joy ThermoSafe Electric Shower 8.5kW White is the ultimate in on-demand hot water showers. It is the ideal shower replacement unit to bring your bathroom up to date as its universal footprint will cover previous installations, and with the multiple cable and water entry options, swivelling connections, and adjustable top and bottom brackets, retrofitting is quick and easy.

This electric shower has separate temperature and flow dials which remain set as the on/off function is controlled by a separate push button switch. The current water temperature level is shown on a digital display from 1 to 12.  In warm-up mode, a flashing light indicates that the water is warming up to the desired temperature, so wait till the light stops flashing to avoid those cold start-ups. The thermostatic control maintains the temperature of the water constant and compensates for any changes in pressure. This shower also features a safety cut out, a phased shutdown, and a low-pressure indicator, as well as a performance indicator which reminds you when it’s time to clean the external filter and the showerhead. The water is drawn directly from the cold mains supply, so this electric shower is ideal for places where no stored hot water is available. The plastic casing is hard-wearing and easy to keep clean, as is the extra-large colour-coordinated shower head which has a rub-clean feature which prevents limescale accumulation to enhance performance and to extend working life.

Today Bristan showers are globally renowned for a commitment to design quality, modern style, long life, durability, ease of installation and use, and this Bristan shower includes a two-year warranty from the manufacturer.

    This Bristan Joy shower was a replacement for a very old Gainsborough shower. Gainsborough do not manufacturer showers with similar pipe and electrical layouts their old showers used, as was confirmed by their not very helpful customer service help line. However this Bristan shower had many configurations and consequently fitted perfectly into the existing pipe and wire connections. Not only that it is an excellent shower to use. I'm very pleased with this purchase and Plumbworld's price was really competitive.

    We bought the Bristan Joy as a replacement for a Mira shower when its thermostat went after a couple of years. The price here was very good and the speed of service was very impressive. Early dates yet but it definitely seems to be an upgrade. It's easy to use and looks good. I like the limescale filters and the cool-down function when turning off. Long may it last....well, longer than the Mira anyway.

    Fast and efficient delivery system. Arrived 2 days before the stated date and was very well packaged. Excellent shower which was a like for like replacement. Always go to plumb world as a first choice as the customer services are superb. The first shower was faulty and it was changed over and the other one collected with no fuss or bother. Thank you.

    5/ 5

    This product was easy to install onto an existing shower site. It has the added advantage of being thermosafe so no more sudden cold or hot temperature changes when someone turns a tap on. Plumbworld ordering and delivery is fast and easy.

    Had to replace another unit just like it. Plumbworld had the same unit as the other sites I looked at but at a significantly lower price point. Went in easy. no problems.
