Power Showers – A Look at Installation Prices

If your home suffers from low water pressure, your showers are most likely unsatisfying, to say the least.

The cheapest and quickest remedy is to install a power shower.

These showers combine both hot and cold water with a pump that increases the pressure.

The result is a more invigorating shower.

But how much does it cost to install a power shower, how much are installers charging?

This page is all about power shower prices and we last updated it on the .

The prices shown are an average of all the figures we were given, you can use this data to get an idea of the going rate to fit a power shower.

If you’re looking for a custom quote, then you’ll need to submit a few details on this form.

Difference Between a Power Shower and an Electric Shower

They both sound like they do the same thing but they are in fact, both very different.

A power shower is fed by both hot and cold water, this water is usually stored tanks, a built-in pump then increases the water pressure. This type of shower unit doesn’t heat the water.

An electric shower is usually fed by cold water, which is then heated in the unit. There are two different types of electric shower; a pumped version which is designed for homes with low water pressure and unpumped versions which are ideal for homes with sufficient water pressure.

What is the Difference Between Manual and Automatic?

Manual controls are the most popular; you adjust the dial as required. Problems arise when someone else in the home uses a tap, the amount of hot or cold water entering the shower unit will drop and your shower may suddenly become hot or cold.

Automatic controls are more expensive but are easier to use, you just set the desired temperature and they automatically adjust the hot and cold water flow accordingly.

We Think You Should Seek Expert Advice Because…

The best type of power shower for your home will depend on how your water is delivered to the bathroom.

Some homes experience low water pressure while others experience fluctuations when others switch taps on.

A professional installer will be able to access your home’s plumbing and take a pressure measurement before recommending a suitable product.

    This was an easy reading article that covers a long list of WHAT IF’s when it comes down to the installation and pricing of plumbing shower jobs. There are alot of what IF’s surrounding the topic and if you’re not a professional, often gauging and setting aside a “realistic” and “adequete” budget to cover the cost of the work you require can be hard to measure. This guide does well by outlining the strategic design and cost factors that you should consider before purchasing any shower unit. Once you have done so then decide on what to buy.

    Quite the competitive prices. Owning or repairing a water pump sure is pricey. What are your thoughts about stuart turner water pumps as I’m currently thinking of buying one to use in my home. I am located around Ealing and a few good tips would really help alot.
