Is it time to upgrade to a new electric shower? If so, the process at first may seem a bit overwhelming. It doesn’t have to be. It’s only a matter of identifying the type of water system you have and choosing the right shower for you. The process is rather simple and straightforward. You should never hesitate to ask a professional during any part of the process. While installation is simple, knowing which electric shower to buy may not be. You may have to consult someone from your local hardware store to help you through that part of the buying process.
The reasons for an electric shower vary
You may be the type who’s trying to go green. Cutting down on your carbon footprint is always a good thing. There’s also the side effect of paying less money to heat water. That too is always a good thing. You can kill two birds with one stone by adding an electric shower to your bathroom. You will be doing good for the environment and saving a little cash in the process as well. Those are two things that can have a significant impact on you and those whom you care about the most.
Pump or no pump?
The choice of using a pump or not depends on the amount of water pressure you have. If you have plenty of water pressure, then a pump is not required. If, however, you have low water pressure, then you’re going to have to buy a shower system with a pump. If you don’t, then you’re going to have very little pressure. As you can imagine taking a meaningful shower is next to impossible without enough force to wash.
What goes best with your decor?
Are you only replacing the shower or are you redoing the entire bathroom? Replacing a shower in an existing bathroom is easier. You already know what the bathroom looks like and you can choose a shower that fits the current design. It’s a little more tricky if you’re planning an entire bathroom remodelling job. A little guesswork will be needed to chose what you feel is the right shower. The safe bets are chrome and simple designs. Chrome looks good almost anywhere, and the same thing could be said about ordinary white.
It’s all about the showerhead
Your family probably won’t care all that much about what type of shower you buy. They will only care about the showerhead. It’s the part of the shower that they’ll use every day of the week. Almost all showerheads are interchangeable with every electric shower. If you’re in doubt, then ask where you’re buying yours from. They should be able to tell you if they work. Better yet, they can check on the premise to make sure everything works before you buy it. This would be the best way to ensure that both the shower and the showerhead work together flawlessly.
A word to those who want digital showers
Nothing feels better than being able to dial in the exact temperature of the water. You won’t be able to do that with an electric shower. However, you can use the dials to make sure that the water is to your liking. You won’t be able to set the exact temperature the way you can with a digital shower.
