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.
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.
Visually & Audio Enhanced
Simple day-to-day activities such as showering shouldn’t be seen as daunting and the Mira Advance does it best to make sure it’s not. It features high contract graphics , raised markings and light-touch buttons, all to make things easier for those short on sight or lacking in dexterity. For those hard of hearing it benefits from clear, audible beeps so you know when the shower is on or off plus clicks on both the shower handset and central dial.
4 Different maximum temperature settings
With the Mira Advance it’s now even easier to set a maximum temperature. You have a choice of 4 different maximum temperature settings that can be changed at the flick of a switch during installation thanks to the really clever PCB unit.
What is limescale?
Sometimes it can be hard to tell if your shower is suffering from a build-up of limescale as most of the damage is done internally. In some cases you will get a chalky residue appearing on your shower head which will be a good indicator that it’s also inside the shower unit.
People living in hard water areas are definitely more susceptible to limescale so it’s critical to buy a shower that can effectively deal with it otherwise you may have to replace your appliances before you think.
How does Mira Clearscale™ help?
Mira have designed their showers with longer heating elements and larger gaps between the coils ensuring that the heating tank produces a consistent temperature and eliminating hot spots which is where the limescale builds up.
Delayed shutdown also assists by flushing out any leftover hot water.
Mira shower heads
The nozzles on Mira shower heads also help deal with limescale due their rub-clean nature. A soft cloth can be used to simply wipe away any build ups keeping your shower head looking clean and functioning perfectly.
10mm cable size
The right size cable depends on the kW rating of your shower. The higher the rating the greater the flow of heated water will be, so you need to be sure to choose the correct cable size for your shower. This particular shower recommends using a 10mm cable.

Bought to replace a previous Mira shower that we have had for 20+ years. This shower fitted exactly into the space without the need to re-drill any holes or replace any tiles. The rail & shower head were updated to a high standard. We are really pleased with the quality & performance of this product & trust that it will last as long as its predecessor
Replaced aging Advance Mk1 made in 2004 for a direct/sourced replacement. Installation matched original fixings and operation controls easier than old model consequently satisfies fully 'Form, Fit and Function' in every way. Many thanks for rapid response and delivery from order, good company to deal with.
Bought to replace a very old Mira Advance shower. Connected straight up to the original pipework (unit is plumbed outside of the shower cabinet so pipes are rigid in the wall) just half a hole out on the mounting locations. Easily fixed and unit works fine. Hope it last's as long the previous shower.
Could not fault the service I got from Plumbworld ordered on the Sunday at 1.00 pm and received next day a 11.30 am. Fitted straight out of the box and working by the afternoon. Very good price paid for this shower Thankyou for your very prompt service. Satisfied customer.
This shower is of great quality and comes with easy to follow instructions. Electrician had no issues on installation. Very user friendly and well built. Plumbworld has swift and efficient delivery i have brought other items .
We ordered the shower and it was delivered within a couple of days on a day that suited us. It is yet to be plumbed in by our plumber friend but look forward to it being so in the New Year. Would use Plumbworld again definitely.
Bought this to upgrade my old Mira unit and glad I chose another, which was reasonably easy to fit straight in place of the old one. Nice big shower head which can be adjusted to your needs. Fast delivery, very satisfied
Our previous Mira shower packed up after about 9 year's heavy duty service, and this one was our chosen replacement. Several improvements over the previous model, and, as I would expect for the price, another quality unit.
I am very happy with my shower, it does every thing a shower should do, and looks as good as it works, what is there not to like about such a great piece of usefull equipment. THANK YOU PLUMBWORLD AND MIRA.
Quality shower unit , bought to replace 10 year old Mira advance unit which had started to drip , fitted into original mounting holes without any further drilling of tiles , looks and performs great
This is the third Mira electric shower that I have had and from early signs it is going to be just as good as the other two. They are reliable and allow you to get the water temperature right
Bought this as a replacement for one that was 17 years old. Not quite as attractive as the last one, but works as well. Fingers crossed for another 17 ‘working effectively’ years.
This is a great shower, a straightforward replacement for an existing Mira shower. Easy to fit by professional, works well. Ordering and delivery was easy and prompt.
