Electric showers here start from £66.00 for the Galaxy G7000 and go up to the Bristan thermostatic electric shower 10.4 Kw for £391.00 a big price difference so what do you get for your money? Well the answer is simple.
1, Flow – the more the Kilo wattage the faster the flow.
2, Temperature stabilization – electric showers are quite temperamental and with better quality showers you get better performance control.
3, Looks – you will always pay a premium for a better looking shower.
4, Controls – some electric showers will have knobs to turn and control the shower flow and some will have more expensive buttons which will be electronically controlled.
It is important to note with all electric showers the faster the flow the cooler the water they are essentially an instantaneous water heater so paying more money for a unit of a lower wattage will not be a better quality water flow (Shower).

Recessed shower valves are harder to install but look certainly neater in design and are better in performance. Why I hear you ask?
The Crosswater Totti thermostatic shower valve (left) is a nice example of a crosshead shower valve with a ten year guarantee and will function well right down to 0.2bar pressure. available from tapstore for £252.00.
I also like there Bristan Artisan shower at only £99.00 it is a bargain it comes with a 5 year guarantee and is thermostatic as well the handles and front plate are not as good a quality as with the crosswater valve but for less than half the price who would worry.
Both available from Tapstore.com
The concept is simple the Bristan Prism Twinline ceiling fed shower is the easy retro fit shower valve option its neat and tidy and can easily be installed after the tiling is complete or where you have not had a shower previously fitted.
The hot and cold water supplies can be connected above the ceiling in the loft space and the shower is simply mounted on top of the tiling, This Bristan Prism Twinline thermostatic shower is suitable for use with both high and low pressure water systems with a minimum pressure of 0.1 bar.
With its accurate temperature control, and a separate flow control the performance is outstanding, the cold water flow travels around the outside with the hot water running through the center of the pole making sure that safety to the touch giving a family friendly product.
