I've never changed a shower unit but reasonably ok with electrics. Have installed new sockets etc myself and can take radiators off and put back on if needed plumbing wise. But not qualified in either trades.

But I need to replace my shower as I think it's nearing the end of its life as water temp can't be controlled and is literally scalding most of the time so thinking if buying this to replace?

Anyone advise of the difficulty of switching over as this would be a first.

to a competent person this would be ok. but would strongly advise getting a qualified sparky to check.
hardest thing to look out for is the side it plumbs into and keeping it same as your old one makes it alot easier.

water and electric are you crazy? pay a spark to do it!

If your electric wire from the fuse box to your shower is not the same or better than the average which is usually 8.5 kW, this unit being 10.7kw would burn your wiring out and could be very dangerous. I'd get an electrician to at least check your wiring and advise you or better still fit it for you.

It depends on your original installation,for this shower you will need a 50Amp MCB with a 63A RCD. Also your cable must be 10mm T&E.

And if any of that was unclear, pay a spark.

That is a good price but do check reviews. The air boost function gets very mixed reviews.

Recent Mira showers are designed with multiple entry points for water and movable cable blocks to make replacement of an old shower as easy as possible.

Sounds like a unreliable/noisy gimmick. I would imagine they have just fitted a tiny compressor inline with waterflow to give it a little boost (I've got an attachment for my hose pipe that does this and its supposed to make it like a pressure washer but.......).

I looked into showers quite a bit when renovating the bathroom. We went for the bristan glee eventually, you can buy it for 100-130 depending on the power or finish required (comes in white or black).

We were happy enough with it that we recommended it to a friend. Also has a digital temp display which is useful..

So the airboost is hopeless? We have moved house from a gravity system that was very powerful to an electric shower which is basically a piddle. I've been looking at the airboost in the hope it was the answer to my issues?

It might be worth you having a read of this ofwat.gov.uk/con…re/ and the pdf on standards within it regarding water pressure.

I went for a Mira Jump (2014 edition) 10.8kw version for a recent ensuite we have installed. It is a good looking unit and the shower is terrific. After extensive research, it proved the best all round in terms of price, performance and looks and I'm really pleased with it. The power of it is quite impressive compared to any other electric shower I've ever had or used (remember you need some fairly hefty wiring to support a 10kw unit, we were doing an extension so it was straight forward to add at the time).

The multi-spray pattern head is the same model you get on the Mira Sport and the design is very similar (the old Mira Jump was fugly compared but can be had for cheaper).

I paid around £135 for it from Aqva.co.uk, here is the link

All of the reviews I read said it was particularly noisy and didn't seem to add anything to the shower experience.

That looks like a nice model. Temp display a nice touch but not really necessary.

Hi could anyone tell me if the Mira sport Air Boost 10.8 will fit in the same place as my old Mira Sport Max 10.8. Thanks in advance.
