You won't get it. It's been reduced and bought by someone else now...........

are these power showers (need hot and cold supply) with an internal pump. or electric showers? mains fed only?

Nice find

people dont understand. being a plumber for 12 years, a power shower is powered from mains electricity, but has hot and cold supplies (low pressure,and has an internal pump) to the unit. an ELECTRIC shower is supplied by mains pressure water. i doubt for that price that these are power showers.... more like a 7.5/8.5/9.5KW electric shower more like....

What is the make and Product Code please
Just been to my local and they know nothing of tyhis.

Many thanks in advance

I understand......

You buy an electric shower and add a pump = power shower.

But yes, I see what you mean.

I don't think you do. You never combine an "electric" (heating element to produce hot water from cold mains-pressure water) shower with a pump. It's pointless, against water regulations and probably dangerous. Pumps are used on existing hot water supplies gravity fed from cold water cisterns, i.e. not directly from the mains.

I didn't say direct from mains...........

So yes thanks, I do know what I'm talking about.

Electric showers are designed to run on the mains only. They are not designed to be pumped. Simple as that.

Eh?
I pump in MY shower.....oO

If I bought a proper power shower, how much would it cost for someone to take out my exisiting electric shower and fit the power shower?

Who would I need to hire to do this? a plumber or electrician or what?

Will my existing electrics and plumbing be able to handle a power shower?

The shower I have just now is so weak, it's like a watering can be poured on my bed. I'd really like a nice powerful shower.

I know the terminology is convoluted but what is meant by an "electric" shower is one that contains an electric element to heat water from cold, as I explained earlier. They cannot be used with pumps, and it is pointless to do so anyway because they only have a limited flow rate as they cannot produce instantaneous hot water at the sort of rate that would benefit from the use of a pump.

Your pumped shower will be connected to a hot water cylinder, using stored hot water. It will not contain a heating element to produce hot water from cold water instantaneously. As I said, it's confusing, but you do not have an "electric" shower - you have a "pumped" or "power" shower.

A power shower in this case is a single contained unit that heats and pumps at higher pressures than the normal electric shower.

Could well be just one guy as long as he's certified in both trades. Your best bet is to ring around and ask for quotes from Plumbers.

Is it? Can you please point me to examples of such things, because I've never heard of them. The limiting factor in the performance of an "electric" (electrically-heated) shower is the power of the heating element, which is in turn limited by the capacity of the average domestic electricity supply. Therefore, you just won't get the sort of performance you'd get from a pumped shower operating from a stored supply of hot water, or a combination boiler (if your mains water supply is up to it).

1st check if your stopcock is fully open.
Then turn it back a half turn in the hope that stops it sticking open. < My idea, not gen.
If that makes no diference a higher rated shower might suffice. 9.5 or 10.5 kW
Your shower or pipes could also be clogged up but i know nothing about that.
Good luck.

Most likely limited by the heating element as I keep saying, especially if it's poorer in winter when the incoming water is colder so you have to reduce the flow rate to maintain the temperature.

Bear in mind that fitting a higher power electric shower is likely to result in you needing to replace the wiring and the MCB in the consumer unit, so it's probably not a "drop-in" replacement.

Thank you for that clarification.
I'd forgotten about that.

Ive got an aqualisa Power shower. Blows these cheapy things out the water. Pay more and get something more substantial me thinks. (_;)

will take a look

I have an electric shower and a pump that does not pump from the mains, funny that it all works fine !!!

I went to Leamington and Minworth and staff there knew nothing of this either.

pibpob its so hard sometimes trying to explain the differences between showers! lol im glad someone else knows what im talking about....

It might work fine, but that doesn't mean it isn't dangerous or illegal.

just for you



brilliant! lol

SO..... please confirm that an electric shower i.e. Triton Topaz T100si which is fed direct from the cold water supply can not be used with a water pump. That will mess my plan up, thought I was going to buy a 10.5 electric shower and £150 pump to guarantee we don't get low pressure.

Call me a novice but it took me less than 2 mins on the net to see that the 'professionals' are wrong. Talking nonsense and need to educate self. Maybe I am wrong but with the TWO mins I read I can tell pippob comment at 14:56 would appear to be nonsense.
Edited by: "bargainhunter666" 12th Feb 2011

Anyone know if there are any in Ipswich?

Triton pumped t80si is NOT the shower here but is a good example of an electric power shower.
