Both the Bristan pumps Varispeed and the Duraspeed pumps can still be bought new as the older model shape still contrary to what has been said by many suppliers recently who are trying to sell the Stuart Turner versions.
The issue when using the new replacement models is that the pipework will need to be altered to suit which invariably will cost more in time and plumbing costs.
The old Bristan Pumps come branded as Tapstore Pumps but are exactly the same as the older models just with a different non return valve fitted, which is most cases can simply be removed with a pair of long nosed pliers.
Basically you pull out the valve from the outlet of the pump, twist apart the plastic casing and discard of the rubber sheet that is it.
Some of the very old Bristan, New Team and Showerfore models came with different connection hoses for compression fittings you can even still get these versions although slightly more expensive.

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.http://www.tapstore.com/bristan-glee-8-5-kw-electric-shower-white.html
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).

Bristan Chill Showers.
There are four opinions for the shower, the first option pictured to the left is a thermostatic shower valve that can be mounted either on the surface or recessed into the wall, it comes complete with a riser rail kit and a really neat stylish single function shower handset.
In the recessed only options which are also thermostatic you have the choice of a dual function with a flow control and a temperature control handle ideal for either a shower kit or a fixed position shower head, then there is a shower valve with diverter so two items can be controlled and my favorite the three way valve (pictured right) which is the same as the diverter option with the added bonus of a stop cock on/off control fitted below the thermostat that can be used simultaneously with either of the top outlets or individually on its own.
