Mixer Showers

Mixer Showers are taking the showering industry by storm with unique designs and ingenious, user-friendly features. They work but taking water from your hot and cold feeds and combining the inside the mixing valve to the optimum temperature. Mixer showers are usually available in one of three choices, Exposed Valve or Variable (EV), Built-In Rigid (BIR) and Built-In Valve or Variable (BIV). Exposed valve mixer showers are mounted inside the showering area with pipes that connect through the wall, built-in rigid mixer showers are installed inside the wall with just the shower control and the rigid shower head visible, and lastly the built-in valve mixer shower has the valve installed in the wall but with an adjustable riser rail fitted in the shower area. You’ll often see BIR and BIV mixer showers described as “concealed” like below.

Mira Element Exposed Valve Thermostatic Mixer Shower - 1.1910.001

Brilliant shower

We bought this shower 7 years ago. The temperature gauge is not as accurate as it was but we are so happy with the shower its self and its reliability and build we are going to buy another one for our bathroom re-vamp. My husband still thinks it's a 'power' shower because the 'massage' setting is so good.

Triton Tees Bar Thermostatic Mixer Shower Chrome

Great Quality, Service & Price

I love this shower it's really substantial without the hefty price you'd normally get. Triton are a quality, known brand so I was confident buying it and I just love the big shower head. It looks really good, was relatively easy to install and I'd buy another one in the blink of an eye!

Architeckt Thermostatic Mixer Shower – Round Bar Valve with Square Drench & Adjustable Heads

Architeckt Thermostatic Mixer Shower

Good product, easy to assemble and fix. Quality seems good (only time will tell on that!), functioned well with no leaking with riser rubber seals.

Great Shower

Quality build, bought as much for the shower head as the nice design overall. Everything works like a charm.

A Mixer Shower For The Whole Family

A mixer shower is the perfect type of shower for those who want an invigorating, memorable experience as opposed to a quick wash. Whereas electric showers require an electrical connection, a mixer shower doesn’t and simply runs off a cold and hot water feed which are mixed together in the valve before being pushed through the showerhead. Mixer showers offer a much higher flow rate when compared to electric showers and better yet, they can be coupled with a separate shower pump to increase the flow further. Plumbworld’s comprehensive range of mixer showers from Mira, Triton and other world renowned manufacturers will ensure you get the highest quality shower currently available.

Stylish & Stunning Showers

Because the mixer shower doesn’t require an inbuilt pump or heating element, the designs of the valves can be much more focused on aesthetics. More often than not valves are quite minimalist and don’t protrude into the showering area too much; they can also be built into the shower wall for extra aesthetics whilst retaining all their normal functionality. 

The types of valves can vary widely; standard valves with single and double controls are available, bar valves are also fairly common and you can opt between exposed and built-in valves. All of these can be found in a variety of styles, shapes and designs, allowing you much greater control over the look of your bathroom to maximise aesthetics. The wide choice of valves from Plumbworld will ensure that you can find the perfect shower for your bathroom that complements the rest of your fittings.

Thermostatic Safety

The benefits of a thermostatic valve are mostly for safety. If the cold water feed for some reason fails, there will be a feature that kicks in to turn off the shower, ensuring that you and your family won’t risk the danger of getting scalded by hot water. The constant temperature check also ensures that those small changes such as toilet flushes and taps running elsewhere in the house will not make a difference to your showering experience. It should also be noted that a thermostatic mixer valve can also increase efficiency by saving water and energy thanks to its intelligent adjustments.

thermostatic

Mixer showers have the option of thermostatic and manual models; most people will opt for the thermostatic option since it provides a safer, more efficient and overall better showering experience. A thermostatic mixer has the ability to maintain a specific temperature for the duration of the shower by mixing the hot and cold according to your temperature preference. If there are any fluctuations in pressure or water temperature, the valve reacts immediately and modifies the mix of hot and cold water to keep temperature constant. You won’t even know that it’s working because you won’t feel the temperature change at all.

No Electrics Required

The good thing about mixer showers is that they don’t require any electrical connections to function since they have no electrical element to heat the water within the unit. Therefore you don’t need to worry whether you have the correct cabling for the shower you want to install; and this will also save you a lot of money on any electrical work that would’ve had to be done. If for some reason you have a power-cut, you will still be able to shower and get ready for the day since the mixer shower doesn’t rely on electricity to function. As well as this, your electricity bill will also be considerably lower; especially for large families or people who like an extra long shower in the mornings.

Mixer Showers Explained Further...

Mixer showers combine the hot and cold water supplies from your domestic hot water system. This means that you need a combi boiler, hot water storage tank, unvented system or immersion heater to supply the hot water to the shower.

Mixer showers generally produce a stronger flow than electric showers and are the perfect choice if you have a Combi Boiler or an Unvented (Pressurized) Hot Water System.

One thing to watch out for with mixer showers is that the temperature of the shower may be affected by changes in the water pressure. If you live alone this probably won’t be a problem, but if others are turning on taps or flushing toilets while you are in the shower then you will experience temperature “spikes”! This is only the case for the cheaper manual mixer showers. Thermostatic mixer showers have built in protection to stop this.

 

Mixer Showers

 

While some mixer showers will work with any pressure of water system, others are designed specifically for either a high-pressure or a low-pressure system - make sure you check before you buy that the shower you like will work on the system you have at home. If your home has low water pressure, you could also consider buying a shower pump to increase the flow.

Pros of mixer showers:

  • High flow rate gives powerful showering experience
  • Thermostatic mixer showers give you added safety and stop you being scalded
  • Manual mixer showers are the cheapest showering solution

Cons of mixer showers:

  • Need to ensure that you get the correct type for your water system
  • Require hot and cold water supply so if replacing an electric shower will need more plumbing work
