Aqualisa Showers

Aqualisa is one of the UK’s most successful shower manufacturers. From the introduction of their revolutionary bi-metallic thermostatic shower valve in 1977 to the launch of the first Digital shower in 2001, they have always been renowned for quality, innovation and service. In 2004, Aqualisa launched Axis Digital and in 2006, Aqualisa unveiled the very first, entirely wireless and battery-less remote control. Today, the Aqualisa story continues with further innovation, product development and enhancement. Showerselector offer a range of electric, mixer and digital showers from the Aqualisa range. Which are all designed and manufactured in the UK.

Aqualisa Showers Subcategories

  • Bath Shower Mixers

    Choose a bath shower mixer for dual purpose of filling your bath and showering. 4 Thermostatic temperature control ensures safety. Deck mounted over tap holes, or can be wall mounted.

  • Digital Showers

    Controlled by a digital processor that speeds installation, eliminates damage to walls and mixes hot and cold water with thermostatic precision. Quartz and Axis Digital delivers a total showering solution. The most advanced type of shower. Turn on your digital shower by remote control. Digital showers can be used both off the mains water supply via a combination boiler or an unvented heating system (see Heatingselector.co.uk for further information) or via a conventional gravity fed system using stored hot water and a cold water tank, please refer to the schematic drawings under the showerselector process to understand how these systems look, and to help you identify your own system. Pumped digital showers essentially take your stored hot and cold water and mix it then pump the mixed supply of water to the shower, via a digital interface in the shower area. Non-pumped digital showers work via a combination boilers or unvented heating system, effectively using the mains pressure which is generally much higher than can be achieved via a gravity fed system, hence no need for an integral pump in the mixing unit. Digital showers are widely recognised as the future of showering in the UK, Showerselector features one of the leading Uk brands Aqualisa Digital showers, one of the leading exponents of digital showering in the UK.

  • Electric Showers

    Electric showers provide an endless, economical flow of water that’s heated as its required. No demand on stored hot water, as the supply is taken from mains fed system. Electric showers are connected via the rising cold main into the property, please refer to the schematic drawing under the showerselector process on this site to help understand the principle of how an electric shower works. The performance of an electric shower is dependent upon various criteria, the kW rating of the shower used (ie the power of the unit) the flow of water/pressure coming into the unit, and the incoming cold water temperature. Electric shower kW power ratings vary from 7.5kW up to 10.8kW, generally speaking the higher the kW rating the greater the pressure and flow of the shower. The most common kW rating used in the UK, is 8.5 to 9.0 Kw, as a rule of thumb the following would apply: 7.5kW – Adequate shower in summer months but poor performance in winter when the ambient temperature of the cold water is very cold, and therefore more kW of power is needed to heat up the incoming water as it passes over the elements in the hot water tank of the shower. 8.5 -9.0kW – Good shower in summer, and adequate shower in winter, making this the most common electric shower power rating used in the UK. 10.0 – 10.8kW – Excellent shower in the summer and good shower in the winter months, due largely to their high power rating, 10kW plus power ratings provide the best in electric showering. Aqualisa electric showers, are one of the leading UK brands and are listed on the showerselector website at very competitive prices.

  • Mach Shower Pumps

    A shower pump improves the hot and cold water supply to manual and thermostatic mixer valves, giving a more powerful water flow of your shower, ideal for also, for accessories such as body jets or power shower heads. Gives a power shower performance. Showerselector recommends twin impeller shower pumps, twin impeller meaning the pump has two sides to it and two sets of impellers, one side to pump the cold water and the other the hot water from stored supplies in the home. Shower pumps range from 1.5 bar up to 4.0 bar plus, typically, a 1.5 bar twin impeller shower pump will give a strong individual shower performance. If another outlet is required such as a bath tap, then a 2.0 bar or 3.0 bar pump will be required. If a shower has multiple outlets such as bodyjets, then 3.0 bar + pumps will be required.

  • Power Showers

    Power Showers combine combining a thermostatic mixer valve and pump in one stylish and compact unit, Aqualisa offers you a high performance shower for installation in a shower enclosure or over a bath from a gravity storage system. 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 as one of the top UK brands. 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 Aqualisa Opto, 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 Aqualisa Mach showerpump, 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.

  • Mixer Showers

    Mixer showers are mechanical products, usually made from brass and polished chrome. Mixer showers take a supply of hot water on one side of the valve and cold on the other - they effectively mix the water, usually through thermostats to provide the person with a controlled temperature of water. Mixer showers generally provide a better flow rate and level of performance than electric showers. Mixer showers can be used both off the mains water supply via a combination boiler or an unvented heating system (see Heatingselector.co.uk for further information) or via a conventional gravity fed system using stored hot water and a cold water tank, please refer to the schematic drawings under the showerselector process to understand how these systems look, and to help you identify your own system. Mixer showers essentially take your stored hot and cold water and mix it via the mixing valve. We recommend thermostatic mixing valves, these valves have an integral thermostat, the thermostat ensures a safe showering temperature for users, especially important for the very young or indeed the very old, showerselector recommends the use of thermostatic shower valves as standard. The choices of mixing valves are numerous largely around styling or price point, clearly the more expensive the better the design and engineering of the product.
