Electric showers buying guide from Mira Showers

Posted by Adam Chard in Buying guides | 6 years ago 5 min read

If you’re looking for a replacement electric shower, or one for a new bathroom project, it can often be tricky to find the right electric shower for you.

That’s why we’ve teamed up with the UK’s No. 1 shower brand, Mira Showers, to help answer some common questions about electric showers and help to guide you through your options.

First, let’s look at how an electric shower works. Using the same principles as the kettle in your kitchen, water is passed over a built-in heating element so that it reaches the desired temperature. Electric showers work from a cold water supply, meaning that even if your boiler breaks down, your shower remains unaffected.

What makes Mira electric showers different?

The team at Mira Showers are committed to making products with benefits for you. Much like a kettle, given time, limescale can build-up with an electric shower, affecting your shower performance or even breaking down. That’s why every Mira electric shower comes with Mira Clearscale™ technology. This clever technology reduces the build-up of limescale by up to 50%, meaning that your Mira electric shower will last twice as long.

Are electric showers powerful?

All Mira electric showers are proven to deliver genuine showering performance. However, if you desire a powerful shower, then the UK’s most powerful electric shower—the Mira Sport Max with Airboost™—could be the shower for you. The Mira Sport Max comes complete with the innovative Mira Airboost™ technology, which increases the water flow by up to 30% at the touch of a button. Better still, this clever technology doesn’t require additional water; instead it injects air into the water droplets, expanding them, for a more powerful showering experience.

I'm replacing an existing electric shower. How do I choose a suitable replacement?

Replacing an electric shower can feel daunting, especially when it comes to replacing tiling and ensuring that the plumbing and cabling of your new electric shower will be compatible with your existing shower.

For a hassle-free replacement option, look no further than the range of retrofit electric showers from Mira, such as the Mira Sport Multi-Fit™ electric shower. This clever shower has multiple cable and water entry points, meaning that you can quickly and easily replace your existing electric shower, and reduce the need to retile your bathroom. Plus, the Mira Sport Multi-Fit™ slide bar has flexible fittings, so you can adjust your slide bar to cover existing screw holes. In a similar way, the Mira Jump Multi-Fit is a great replacement option, with 36 different installation combinations.

Is there such a thing as a stylish electric shower?

In choosing an electric shower, Mira Showers believe that you shouldn’t have to compromise on style. If you are looking to complete your contemporary bathroom with a sophisticated electric shower, then the Mira Azora could be just for you.

The stylish frosted glass fascia is perfectly complemented by premium chrome features, and its performance is as good as its looks. However, if you’re looking for different style options to suit a particular bathroom look, then browse the different Mira Galena fascia options. Choose from Silver Glass, Slate Effect and Light Stone to discover the Mira electric shower for you.
