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.


The Gainsborough 8.5 SE electric shower is economical to run and easy to install and maintain. It has a stylish design with a contemporary white finish, whilst applying a no-fuss mentality. With just a single start/stop push button and a dial used for flow and temperature controls, this shower executes simplicity and modern design.

The Gainsborough showers also contains ‘Spray Control’ technology, which maintains an even spray pattern and automatically adjusts to the mains water supply temperature, thus maximising water flow, as well as  unique 'active' silicone nozzles on the showerhead which adapt according to the flow rate. These features combined allow for the optimum shower experience.

    My previous Gainsborough shower failed and I wanted the same model to replace it so that it fitted without having to alter the wiring or plumbing. I found the plumb world web site and to my surprise the price of the unit was cheaper than the manufacturers , I phoned and ordered the shower at 8 o' click on a Friday morning and it was delivered as promised the following day . The service could not be faulted this is what you should be able to expect as standard which is obviously the case where plumb world is concerned. Well done and thank you.

    Purchased to replace a very dated Gainsborough Shower. Chose this as assumed it would be simple to change which it was, infact couldn’t be more easy. Job done in less than an hour. Shower working very well good pressure although incoming water pressure could be better. Overall very happy and would thoroughly recommend.

    I've had a couple of these now and they are very easy to install. Does the trick nicely. If you have lower pressure, you may want to go for a higher rated shower as these limit the flow through the heater tank to heat up the water temp more but I guess all electric showers do this.

    Excellent service once again from plumbworld 2/3 days from order to delivery, The price was also very very good could not purchase at this price from anywhere else, a great product easy to install easy to use, will certainly use Plumbworld if needed again and again.

    Wanted this shower to replace one by the same manufacturer that we had had for a number of years, we are completely satisfied with it any other make would have meant replacing pipe work which we weren’t prepared to do as our bathroom is completely tiled.

    I’d been looking on various sites for a replacement engine for my shower when I went and found the whole thing on plumb world’s site cheaper than the engine on its own what a great result I will look in future there first for any plumbing needs

    I have bought this shower to keep in stock. For years I have bought this same shower and it has always reliable. The one I have fitted at the moment is about seven years old. So I bought the new one ready to fit in when the old one fails.

  • Vincent Maguire
    5/ 5

    This was a direct replacement for my previous shower , so no fitting problems.it actually has a more effective thermostat so uses less power and has a good flow. Had to get the 8.5 due to cable size from the consumer unit.
