The right shower can transform your bathroom into a true oasis. Whether you’re seeking something energy and water efficient, such as an eco shower, or something more technologically advanced, like a digital shower, it’s important to select a model that suits both your home and your needs. Read on to find out more about what’s available.

 

Digital Shower

 

New and innovative, a digital shower provides water of a specific temperature at the touch of a button. It is controlled by a panel, which communicates with a power unit often stored in an airing cupboard.

 

Features and Benefits

  • The control panel can be located up to 10 metres away
  • State of the art technology
  • Wireless and remote range models are available

 

Eco Showers

 

Water efficient, an eco shower has a factory fitted flow regulator.

 

Features and Benefits

  • Conserve water and lowers water bills
  • Mixer and electric models are available
  • Offer up to a 50% reduction in water usage

 

Electric Shower

 

A shower that draws from the cold water supply, heating it on demand and providing hot water instantly. Flow performance is dependent upon wattage.

 

Features and Benefits

  • Over 99% energy efficient
  • A myriad of styles and finishes are available
  • Easy installation

 

Mixer Showers

 

A shower that draws from both hot and cold water sources, typically delivering high flow rates. Mixer showers suit homes with large capacity hot water cylinders or combi boilers.

 

Features and Benefits

  • Both hot and cold water are mixed within the unit
  • A range of models are available, including those with adjustable and fixed heads

 

Power Shower

 

Commonly considered “in between” a regular mixer and electric shower, a power shower draws from both hot and cold water supplies, mixing it within the unit to the desired temperature. Flow rate is boosted by an integrated pump.

 

Features and Benefits

  • Works with a low pressure system
