Types of Showers
When it comes to choosing the right shower for your bathroom, the choice can become overwhelming. There are many types of showers which we will discuss in this guide.
- Mixer Showers – easy to fit and simple to use
- Electric Showers – quick and easy to fit, own heating element means only cold water is needed
- Power Showers – draw from both hot and cold water supply, sometimes confused for electric showers but are much smaller in size
- Digital Showers – using digital technology allows the user to set a specific temperature, and some models even can be turned on and off with a control
- Smart Showers – referred to as the most advanced shower, it integrates into any home, even using Alexa to turn the shower on and off
- Thermostatic Showers – keep your water at a constant temperature which is most suitable for families and those in danger of scalding themselves.
There are also other shower accessories that you may want to consider, such as shower enclosures, shower trays, and shower pumps.
There are many things to think about before deciding to buy a shower, both water pressure and also sizing and measurements of your bathroom. Water pressure dictates the speed of your shower and can make a huge difference in which shower you decide to buy, so it is important to check this detail before shopping for a shower.
Water systems also differ from home to home. There are three common types:
- Gravity Fed – one of the most common water systems in UK homes, it involves a cold water tank usually located in the loft and also a water cylinder located in the airing cupboard.
- Combi boiler – A boiler generally with no tank or water cylinder, it is designed to heat water as and when it is needed. This is the type of water system that uses the highest water pressure.
- Unvented – An immersion heater or boiler is used to heat the water in the water system providing high volumes of hot water.
When you know which water system you have in your home, it will make choosing your shower or shower accessories much easier.
What is the cost?
Depending on the work you want to have done and the size of your shower or bathroom will dictate the pricing.
