What are the different types of showers?
Which water system do I 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). Water in the cylinder is heated by a boiler or immersion heater and fed to the taps via a pipe.
Mixer, power, electric and digital showers all work well with this system.
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.
Mixer, electric and digital showers work with this system.
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.
Mixer and digital showers work with this system.
Cold mains supply
An electric shower fitted to the cold mains supply. The water is heated automatically when switched on so you won't use up any hot water stored in a cylinder.
Only electric showers work with this system.
