The Mira Event XS Power Manual White-Chrome has a very aesthetically pleasing modern design and looks good. More importantly, it is powerful and effective and provides an excellent shower experience. I was not sure if it would be any better than the old Mira that it replaced, but I was pleasantly surprised and delighted to discover that it is in fact more powerful. I hoped that the new one would fit where the old one did. So I did some checking before buying this one. The piping was exactly the same, but I had to drill new holes, which was a little tricky given my poor (read pathetic!) DIY skills. I also found it difficult to establish a firm connection, to avoid it leaking, but after several attempts, and a bit of jiggling to get the unit lined up with the drill holes I managed it. This is more due to my inexperience than anything to do with the product. A good plumber would have had fewer problems than I had in fitting it. Overall, I am very pleased with my new shower and at my brilliant DIY skills in fitting it! Also, I should mention that Plumbworld’s price was the cheapest I could find on the Internet, which was a huge plus. If you are replacing an old Mira or any other power shower, or are looking for one for the first time, then I thoroughly recommend buying this one from Plumbworld.
Great shower Mira Vigour
Bought this shower to replace my old Mira shower which broke down after 10 yrs of great service. I ordered it on the thurs and it arrived on the sat, but when my plumber was fitting it, it wouldn't work the the gear for the dial that turns the water on wouldn't click like it was ment to, so i had to register my shower on the Mira website for my guarantee, and phoned Mira the next day they had one of thier men come out the following day he put a new part in the shower and hey presto it was in great working order. It is a great shower very powerfull just as good as my old Mira shower but for a fraction of the price. I would highley recommend the Mira Vigour power shower it fits the same pipe work as my old Mira and it is the same size as my old shower. Over all very satisfied with my new purchased, thanks very much Plumbworld you are the cheapest Mira supplier on the internet with a great aftercare service. Well done keep up the great work.
Fantastic product that has revolutionised shower time!
We recently moved into an old house that has very low water pressure and a very basic shower. The experience was not great - at best a warm dribble! We had a few plumbers take a look and all of them suggested the Aqualisa as the best product on the market for our problem. It was a bit more pricey than other power showers, but the advice was unanimous, so we went for it. I could not be happier, and would actually rate the shower experience as being among the best Ive ever had - powerful, hot and consistent. Its also really easy to turn the pressure up and down, which is great as my youngest child doesnt like it too strong, whilst my husband likes a shower to feel like a stampede of elephants. We are one very happy family with this shower, which despite being a bit more pricey, is worth every penny to start the day with such a fantastic shower!
Bought this shower as a replacement for a customer's Wickes Aquatronic own label thermostatic power shower. A couple of on-line forums suggested the Wickes shower was an own-branded version of the previous Mira Vigour model and that they all shared the same hot and cold water inlet positions, so a swap wouldn't require any pipework modifications, which would help to keep down costs for the customer. I phoned Mira to check on this, but it turned out that Wickes also used another supplier for the shower but kept the same model name. Sod's Law decreed that my customer's shower was the 'other' type, so when the Mira Vigour arrived I still had to modify the pipework. However, that still turned out to be worthwhile. Reasonable power and good thermostatic control give this shower and excellent water flow across the temperature range. The height adjustment button on the riser rail is hard to grip for those with mobility limitations and there is limited forward rotational movement of the shower head when it sits in the riser bracket. The case is a little bit 'plasticky', with a slightly less than solid feel to the backplate and cover. Overall I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it - reasonable price, decent performance, straightforward fitting, but beware if you think it's a swap-out for the old Wickes Aquatronic - check the exact model you have before buying if you're purchasing because you think there's no pipework to revise.
Bought this to replace a Mira Event that weve had since 1998 after it gave up the ghost. plumworld was significantly cheaper than anywhere else and the delivery was very prompt. I had hoped the new shower would fit exactly as the old one, but we had to re-drill the mounting holes. Apart from that, the plumbing and electrics were very simple and a direct replacement. Because the new unit is a slightly different shape, it did leave one of the old holes showing, but no great drama. The shower itself is fine, though it doesnt feel quite as powerful as the old one - but not sure if thats down to the different shower head that comes with the new one? Overall, very pleased with the new shower and an easy direct replacement for the old one. Hope it lasts as long as well!?
