The difference between an Electrical Shower and a power shower?

What is the difference between an Electrical Shower and a power shower?

This is a question I often get asked…

1) An electric shower heats cold mains water as it passes by a heating element, similar to a kettle. They are connected to a mains water supply and an electrical supply. Electric showers are perfect for home without a gas supply or homes with stored/tanked water supply. You can also use these in home with a combi boiler as no hot supply is required.

2) A power shower is a pumped shower which will boost the water pressure if the water pressure is not high enough for a good flow from the shower head. It connects to CISTERN FED hot and cold supplies and can be thermostatically controlled. It delivers the mixed water at a good pressure to a shower head. Power shower require a hot and cold water feed and should not be fitted to a combi boiler system.

I hope this helps people.

Everything evolves, even your shower

Everything evolves with time be it science, art or technology. The best use of technology is when it is used for the betterment of mankind and increase in improvement of life and living.

Most of the modern technologies that we use today have reduced the human effort and made life simpler and easier. The most basic necessities of life are now administered by the latest technologies. There was a time when people used to go and take bath in rivers, then the time shifted when people started using buckets in their bathrooms and now is the time when people love to take bath under the cabinet showers.

People change with time and so do their requirements and necessities. The immense changes and advancements in bathroom fittings are one such example. Manufactures, such as Mira Showers, realise that bathrooms these days have become a place where people reflect on their long day ahead or like to refresh after a tiring one. Mira showers is one such company which is revolutionizing the way people think about their bathrooms. For instance, there are a wide range of showers kits and digital showers in which water temperature changes with the help of a thermostat. A dial is provided to regulate the temperature and there is a safety lock mode so as to keep it safe when not in use. These showers are not only great to use but also beautify the bathroom aesthetically.

Mira electric shower is the next variety in range of showers. It has a temperature regulator to regulate the water temperature. It is also provided with on and off button to start the shower. The shower is provided with a bar which can be easily adjusted to the wall. The power shower is the next category in the range. The power shower is provided with more or less the same functions as in digital and the electric shower. The mixer shower is the easiest to use, even a child can operate it easily. It is provided with a bar to adjust to the wall and occupies a lot lesser space in your bathroom.

These showers are made up of lustrous steel that make them shine. Shower heads and other showers accessories are also available at Mira showers.

Mira Showers are very affordable and are available from your local bathrooms showroom or online. Just remember to ask your plumber about which shower is best for you.

How to make a wetroom

This video shows how to make and install a wetroom. In this video it show how a level floor wetroom is created using a level access wetroom kit by Abacus Direct.

In previous posts I have talked about what a wetroom is and why tanking a wetroom is essential.

I have posted a tutorial video before showing the tanking process using Roman Shield by Roman Showers but I also found this video by Abacus Direct which shows a similar method to the Roman Shield tanking but uses waterproof boards instead of making plaster boards and wooden floors waterproof with chemicals.

What I like about this video is that it shows the method of fitting a preformed wetroom floor tray and waste.
