Aqualisa Quartz Electric Shower 9.5kW Chrome

Electric shower

Easy to use website, order dispatched and arrived on time. High quality goods for reasonable price

Carolyn Haydon

Mira Sport Max Electric Shower 10.8kW White & Chrome

FAB SHOWER

THIS IS MY 3RD MIRA SHOWER OVER THE YEARS. I WON'T BUY ANY OTHER BRAND AS THEY HAVE ALL LASTED OVER 13 YEARS. THIS MIRA SPORT MAX 10.8KW IS THE BEST I HAVE EVER HAD. IT HAS A LOT OF POWER AND THE BOOST OPTION IS LOVELY, SO RELAXING ON TIRED NECK AND SHOULDERS. SOME REVIEWS HAVE SAID THE BOOST OPTION IS TOO NOISY. I HAVE GOOD HEARING, AND I DON'T FIND IT TOO NOISY, IN FACT I CAN STILL HEAR THE BATHROOM RADIO WHILE USING THE BOOST. ANYWAY IT DOESN'T NEED TO BE ON FOR MANY MINUTES.THIS ELECTRIC SHOWER IN MY OPINION IS REALLY THE BEST OUT THERE AND PLUMBWORLD HAD THE BEST PRICE.

Mira Azora 9.8kW Electric Shower

Great Service

Product received just a few days after order and tracking online was a great feature. I was also able to change the delivery date very easily. Value for money was second to none - researched all sources for this product - the shower was well over £100 cheaper than some outlets. Hasn't been fitted yet but from what I can see would definitely recommend.

Triton T80si Pumped Electric Shower 8.5kW

Triton T80si Pumped Electric Shower 8.5kw

I found this shower very easy to install, I chose it as the entry points for the water feed and electric were the same as the old one. the water feed is a simple push fit connection. note that this is not a power shower but one that has a pump that assists the water flow from the cold water tank. it should not be connected directly to mains water pressure.

I recently had this shower fitted was a bit unsure of the look of the flat head but after trying it out its really good, I also checked out the reviews before purchasing it and the feedback was good as in the past Ive always bought a Mira shower. Im very happy with the performance of it.

Things to watch out for!

Ensure adequate cabling for your electric shower

As electric showers can range from 7.5kW all the way to 10.8kW, they all have differing demands on the power supply. In general, all showers that have a power rating greater than 9kW will require cabling to be upgraded from the regular 6mm to 10mm. However, if the shower you buy is 9kW or below, the standard 6mm cables connecting your shower to your electric supply will be suitable. It is advised that a professional electrician is consulted prior to the installation of the shower to ensure all criteria and safety checks are met.

 

Compatible and installation on any system

The joys of needing just a cold water feed makes the electric shower the single most compatible type of shower on the market. Due to its self reliance, installation can take place in virtually any type of home; both new builds and even older properties that don’t have a suitable plumbing system for other types of shower. As the technology in-built into the showers continues to advance, the popularity of the electric shower has also continued to grow and now makes up close to 50% of all new shower sales in the UK alone.

 

Money saving

As mentioned previously, electric showers don’t require a hot water feed since the cold water is heated inside the unit itself. This has the added benefit of not needing to pre-heat the water before use; meaning that you can shower at any time of the day without worrying if you have enough hot water stored up. As well as this, you also save money since your shower will only heat the amount of water it needs to operate; thus making it very economical in comparison to heating an entire tank full of water for a 5-minute shower. Plus they're generally quite cheap to buy when compared with mixers or power showers

 

Say goodbye to cold showers

One of the problems with having a big family is the queue for a shower in the morning. With a regular mixer shower, the person who goes in last will likely have very little hot water left, resulting in a pretty disappointing shower experience. However, as an electric shower heats on demand, this will never be a problem even in the biggest families.

 

Boiler breakdown? No problem

Thanks to the electric shower’s self reliance, even if your boiler is malfunctioning or breaks down entirely, you’ll still be able to shower and get ready for the day ahead without any worries. Since the shower only requires a mains cold water connection and an electricity supply, the boiler is taken out of the equation entirely. The last thing you want is to be stuck without a hot shower on a freezing cold winter morning after your boiler packs up!

Because the electric shower heats up water from cold when it is needed the maximum flow from the shower is limited by how powerful the heating element is. This is measured by the “power rating” in KW. The cheapest electric showers have power ratings as low as 7kw, while the most expensive ones will have power ratings as high as 10.8kw. The higher the kilowatt rating of the shower the stronger the water flow and the more powerful the shower that you can expect.

 

However, even the most powerful electric showers will not match the flow rate of a mixer shower or power shower, so if you like a shower that “takes the skin off your back” then even a 10.8kw shower will probably be disappointing.

If you want to upgrade an existing electric unit to a more powerful one with a rating above 9kw then it is important to get your electrician to check the electric cabling size in your home. Most home circuits are wired with 6mm cable, which is fine for most showers up to 9kw, but for higher power electric showers you may need to upgrade to 10mm cable. This video explains more about the electrical system requirements.

Another thing to consider with electric showers is that the strength of the shower can be considerably less in the winter months! The reason is that the incoming water supply is much colder and the shower has to work much harder to heat up the water to a suitable temperature. As a result the shower can’t sustain such a high flow rate. This video from Mira explains how seasonal changes impact shower performance:

Pros:

  • You don’t pay to heat water that you don’t need or use
  • Can be installed in virtually any home
  • Will still give you a shower if your boiler breaks!
  • Cheaper to buy than other types

 

Cons:

  • Generally a weaker flow than other types of shower
  • Limescale build-up can be a problem
  • More powerful models may require re-wiring from the distribution board to the shower
