Type of Showers for Your Bathroom
When it comes to selecting the right shower for your bathroom, you may be overwhelmed by the many types of showers available in the market.
In this article, we will walk you through the different types of showers for your bathroom to help you make an informed choice.
Electric showers are fitted with a heating mechanism that heats up cold water from your home’s water supply and sprays hot water on demand. These showers require an electrical connection and a cold-water supply. Some of the advantages of electric showers include easy installation, space-saving, and potential energy savings. These showers are ideal for homes where water usage is high.
As the name suggests, mixer showers mix hot and cold water within the unit and then deliver it through the showerhead at the temperature you have set. These showers come with a shower valve that mixes hot and cold water before sending it to the showerhead. There are two types of mixer showers:
- Manual mixer showers: These showers are fitted with a valve that enables users to manually control water temperature by adjusting the valve. One of the downsides of a manual mixer show is that it doesn’t shut off automatically if there’s a sudden increase in the water temperature, so it can easily cause scalding.
- Thermostatic mixer showers: These showers are equipped with a thermostatic valve that maintains a specific temperature for the duration of the shower.
Unlike electric showers, mixer showers require both a cold and a hot water supply. Mixer showers are ideal for homes with a large supply of hot water.
Digital showers are operated by the use of a remote device or a control panel located at any part of the house. These showers offer advanced bathroom technology, including a digital thermostat, touchscreen displays, color-coded displays, warm-up modes, and shower timers. Unlike conventional showers, digital showers allow you to control things like pressure, temperature, and volume remotely using a separate control panel. Digital showers can be a stunning addition to a modern bathroom. Besides, they are perfect for homes with young children as they offer advanced features to safeguard against scalding and thermal shock.
Power showers are designed to mix hot and cold water and then deliver it to the shower outlet at a gusty speed to make your showering experience more enjoyable. These showers incorporate a device that increases water pressure, making them an ideal choice for homes which typically have low pressure.
