Power showers take water from both the hot and cold water supplies. They mix the hot and cold to reach the desired temperature. They produce a more impressive spray force than mixer or electric showers, because an internal pump boosts the water flow. They are ideal for homes with a plentiful supply of hot water. There are two types of power shower, both of which utilised stored hot and cold water. The stored hot and cold water are effectively mixed together and then passed through a pump which then significantly improves the performance of the shower through increased pressure and flow to deliver the ‘power shower’. The most cost effective power shower is the ‘integral’ power shower, where the power shower unit houses both the pump and the mixer shower encased typically in a white plastic unit, not dissimilar to look at as an electric shower. They can be noisy if not fitted in the right location, for instance, because of the integral motor and pump they should not be installed onto a cavity wall. Showerselector recommends the Aqualisa and Mira ranges, check out the range, there is a full range which suits all budgetary and aesthetic needs. Again, showerselector recommends thermostatic units. The other power shower configuration available is the arrangement of a shower mixing valve such as the Mira Excel, which mixes water via a conventional gravity fed system with stored hot and cold water which is fed through a shower pump, such as the Salamander range or Stuart Turner range, and then once pumped the hot and cold water then supplies the mixing valve with heavy pressure and flow. Ideal for those who like strong performance in their shower with a well designed shower mixing valve in the shower area.
