Electric showers
Now you know what water system you have, this section shows you the benefits of each type of shower.
So you can begin to pinpoint exactly what you’re looking for.
Electric showers work like a kettle, taking water from your cold water supply and
warming it by passing it safely over heating elements contained in the shower unit.
If you’re replacing a shower and you don’t want to re-tile, it’s worth checking the position of the hot and
cold water pipes, and the shape and size of the replacement shower. That way you’ll be sure that the

Introduction Contemporary Mixer Showers
For a sleek, clean and modern look in your bathroom, choose a mixer from our contemporary range. You’ll enjoy
a great performance and consistent flow, and add a touch of modern designer style.
Mixers take water from your hot and cold supplies then mix it to create your perfect temperature. They’re ideal
if you have lots of hot water on tap. If you have a high pressure system, a mixer shower should give you a more
powerful flow than an electric one. On the other hand, if you have a low pressure system, you can boost the flow
by adding a Mira shower pump (see below).
To find out what water system you have, turn to page 8. Most Mira mixers work on all the common UK water
systems, but it’s important to check before installation.
Which temperature control?
Mixer showers have 3 different types of temperature control:
Manual – Your shower will not compensate for changes in the incoming supply temperature or pressure and
the shower temperature may change.
Pressure Balancing – if you have a pressure balancing mixer, it will compensate for any change in water
pressure and give you a constant showering temperature, provided the supply temperature remains constant.
Thermostatic – a thermostat constantly monitors the incoming water temperature and makes adjustments
to keep the temperature constant. Thermostatic controls give you great temperature control and are ideal for
people who are at risk such as the very young or elderly.
Pressed for space?

Low pressure water system?
A Mira Enduro Shower Pump is compatible with most showers, and helps to boost
