What water system do you have?
The type of water system you have in your home will affect the type of shower you can install.
Low Pressure Gravity System
A cold water tank with a hot water cylinder below it (usually found in an airing cupboard). The water in the cylinder is heated by a boiler or immersion heater and fed to the taps via a pipe.
Mains Pressure Combination
A combination, or combi, boiler heats water directly from the cold mains supply. If you have a combi boiler you won't have a tank in the loft or a cylinder.
Mains Pressure Unvented
A hot water cylinder which is directly fed from the mains supply, without the need of a cold water tank. The water is heated by a boiler or immersion heater.
Cold Mains Supply
An electric shower fitted to the cold mains supply. The water is heated automatically when it's switched on which means you don't use up any hot water stored in a cylinder.
Check out some of the other things you should consider before making your choice.
The amount of water that a power shower can generate. The higher the water flow, the more powerful the shower.
This ensures a constant water temperature, which prevents spikes that can lead to scalding. Manual temperature control showers do not have this.
The showerhead has rubber nozzles that help to prevent build-up of limescale, which can cause blockages.
The temperature and flow settings remain the same each time the shower is used.
A simple way to give your shower an upgrade. Some shower heads feature different spray modes and are limescale resistant.
Our range of shower screens offer great protection against water spray.
