All ranges come complete with a riser rail shower kit and a hose and handset.

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).

Crosswater’s Majestic bathroom taps are a twist on the modern and traditional almost a morph betweenÂ the two creating an elegant and unusual styled tap that just seems to work, its smooth clean lines give it a minimalist feel but shaped on traditional styles almost art deco.
Within the range there are choices for the basin were you have a standard Majestic mono bloc basin mixer or a mini version of the same taps for cloakrooms, there is also a tall mono bloc basin mixer that really accentuates the slender body of the tap. Crosswater also covers the Majestic basin solution with a three hole basin mixer set.

Buying bathroom taps is one of the most important decision you will make when renovating your house, there are so here is a quick guide to assist you in making your choices.
1, Make sure that you buy branded bathroom taps from a reputable retailer through your local showroom or online shop, lots of people are being teased by very cheap prices into buying poor quality import brass ware through shops and the Internet, What I have noticed is that retailers are calling taps by a brand name but when you search for the manufacturer there are no details of them online. So make sure that the manufacturer has a base in the UK.
The reason retailers are now doing this is that it protects them against you finding the same product cheaper elsewhere.
2, It is critical that you select the brand you buy and check that it is suitible for your water system, you need to look for the minimum pressure that a tap or shower will work on e.g 0.2 bar which means you will need 2 meters of distance between the bottom of your cold water storage tank and where the water flows from the taps or shower.
So for each 1 meter in distance you will need 0.1 bar.
*Note If you do not have a cold water storage tank this does not apply unless the stated pressure is above 2.0 bar then call a plumber and get you pressure tested to make sure you have enough.
3, A cheap tap or shower is not good value for money as you will be paying out for a replacement and a plumbers bill which is a lot more costly than paying just a bit more for a recognized brand.
