    Electric showers offer a convenient and powerful alternative to traditional mixer showers, especially in situations with limited hot water access. Let’s delve into.

    How Electric Showers Work:

    An electric shower contains a heating element that warms cold water as it passes through.

    Unlike mixer showers reliant on a supply of pre-heated water, an electric shower provides hot water on demand.

    Most electric showers come with adjustable controls, allowing you to personalize your new shower with temperature.

    Their compact size makes them ideal for smaller bathrooms, and they don’t require replacing or heating a separate hot water cylinder.

    Selecting the Perfect Electric Shower: Power Up Your Daily Routine

    An electric shower offers a convenient and instant hot water solution, but with various models available, choosing the right one is essential. It is always recommended to call either a plumber, or an electrician to find and fit an electric shower, but you still can educate yourself before calling.

    Here are key factors to consider when selecting the perfect electric shower for your needs and bathroom space:

    1 Power Rating (kW):

    • This determines how quickly and how hot the shower can deliver water.
    • Consider your desired water temperature and flow rate.
    • Higher kW ratings (typically 8kW to 10.5kW) provide a powerful shower experience but might require an upgrade to your electrical wiring.
    2 Shower Head Size:
    • Larger showerheads offer a more luxurious showering experience, but they require a higher kW rating to maintain good water force.
    • Choose a size that complements your bathroom space and ensures sufficient water flow for your desired pressure.
    3 Water Pressure:
    • If your home already has low water pressure, an electric shower might not be the best option.
    • Consult a plumber to assess your issues, and recommend an electric shower model compatible with your system.
    4 Safety Features:
    • Look for features like automatic shut-off in case of overheating or water flow issues.
    • Earth leakage protection (ELCB) is crucial to prevent electrical accidents.
    5 User Controls:
    • Consider your preferences for temperature control knobs, digital displays, or additional features like a massage function.
    • Choose controls that are easy to use and adjust, especially for those with limited dexterity.
    6 Design & Finish:
    • It comes in various styles and finishes to complement your bathroom décor.
    • Opt for a shower that seamlessly integrates with your existing bathroom fixtures.
    7 Budget:
    • The range in price depends on power rating, features, and brand.
    • Determine your budget and prioritize features that are most important to you.

    Benefits of Electric Showers

    They offer several advantages that make them a popular choice of shower replacement for many homeowners:

    Electric shower installation process

    We always recommend calling a plumber, or electrician, so please do not DIY, especially if you wish to get a guarantee. Manufacturers normally require proof of the installation, and they will spot if the installation wasn’t done by a professional. The installation process involves connecting the current shower unit to a cold water supply and an electrical outlet. This typically requires mounting the shower unit, connecting the water inlet and outlet pipes, and wiring the electrical connections according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Once installed, the shower is ready for use, providing instant warm water on demand.

    Finding the right installer

    When searching for a tradesman to install your electric shower, prioritize licensed professionals with experience in plumbing services for such installations. Seek recommendations, review their credentials, and ensure transparent pricing before proceeding. Choose an electrician/plumber who communicates clearly and exhibits professionalism throughout the whole service process.

    Maintaining Your Electric Shower

     

    Maintaining your electric shower is essential to ensure optimal performance and longevity. Here are some essential tips to keep your electric shower in top condition:

    1. Regular Cleaning: Clean the showerhead and nozzle regularly to prevent the buildup of limescale and mineral deposits, which can affect water flow and force.
    2. Check for Leaks: Inspect the shower unit and connections for any signs of leaks or water damage. Addressing leaks promptly can prevent further damage and costly repairs.
    3. Descaling: If you live in an area with hard water, consider descaling your electric shower periodically to remove mineral buildup. Use a descaling solution or vinegar to dissolve limescale deposits and maintain efficient operation.
    4. Test Temperature and Flow: Periodically test the water temperature and flow to ensure they are consistent and within safe limits. Adjust the thermostat settings if necessary to maintain a comfortable shower experience.
    5. Inspect Electrical Connections: Check the electrical connections and wiring of your electric shower for any signs of wear or damage.
    6. Ventilation: Proper ventilation is important to prevent moisture buildup, which can lead to mould and mildew growth.
