There are 4 different types
1) Electric shower 2) Power showers 3) Mixer showers 4) digital showers which are either gravity or pumped
Electric showers are economical to run and save water. You only heat the water as and when you need it.
You won’t require a water tank with an electric shower as the water is heated within the unit. You save on the disruption and cost of installing or connecting to an existing water tank.
Electric showers are ideal for families or households where there is a large demand for hot water at one time, such as the morning rush.
With an electric shower, hot water is always available, day or night.
Electric showers come in various different power sizes. These sizes are measured in Kilowatts (KW) The bigger the KW rating the bigger the supply cable and circuit breaker needed.
Power showers work in the same way as mixer showers in that they combine water from the cold and hot supplies. The difference is that power showers have a built-
Power showers are designed to work with gravity-
Mixer showers combine the hot and cold water supplies, meaning you need a combi boiler or immersion heater to provide ready-
You can buy digital showers, the latest innovation in shower design and technology, in pumped or un pumped and electric or mixer models.
The water in a digital shower comes from a small processor box, which mixes hot and cold water to the desired temperature thermostatically (meaning no nasty temperature spikes when someone switches the cold tap on in the kitchen).The processor box can be hidden out of sight rather than being stored in the shower enclosure itself, with the water flowing to the shower head via the riser rail, the wall or the ceiling. This also means you don’t have to drill through existing tiles.
If you buy a digital shower with wireless or Bluetooth technology, you can install the control unit up to 10 metres away, which means you can switch it on and get the water hot before stepping in, or place it at a height that’s convenient to you. Digital shower control units also allow you to pre-
