Which Electric Shower?
Having trouble deciding which electric shower is right for your home? Let MBD Bathrooms help you make the best choice with our handy ‘Which Electric Shower?’ guide:
Which Electric Shower? – Types of electric shower.
There are numerous different varieties of shower on the market, each suited to different hot water supplies and each giving a different rate of water flow. These include mixer shower valves, electric showers and power showers.
Electric showers and electric power showers both have benefits and potential drawbacks. When deciding which electric shower to go for, consider which variety would suit your water system, and whether you prefer a strong, invigorating shower or a gentler, more relaxing showering experience.

Which Electric Shower? - Limescale
Electric showers and power showers have something of a reputation for limescale build-up in areas that have hard or mineral-rich water. Thanks to innovative features available on selected Galaxy Showers, however, mineral build-up no longer poses a significant problem for today’s electric showers.
If you do live in a hard water area, and are unsure as to which electric shower to buy, consider the Aqua 3000si or 4000si models in our range, which include features such as Scalemaster Protection and Phased Shutdown; these features combined can significantly reduce limescale build-up and increase longevity.
The Aqua 3000si and 4000si models are both Guaranteed for two years against limescale build up and manufacturing faults.
Which Electric Shower? – Finding a Suitable Installer
To save yourself the hassle of dealing with an installer/electrician who isn’t qualified for the job, consider contacting a professional who is a member of a self-certification scheme such as the British Standards Institution.
An important factor to consider when dealing with an electric shower installer is whether or not they will provide a BS7671 certificate when the work is complete; this certificate proves that electrical work has been carried out safely and is essential if you want to sell your house.
