DIY – How To Install an Electric Shower

October 27, 2011 § Leave a comment

Nearly all homes these days have electric showers.  It’s by far more economical and uses less water than having a bath.

If your old shower is not delivering the invigorating jet any more then it might be time to upgrade to a new, and even more efficient model.  An electric shower is not overly difficult to install, although you should be aware that you are dealing with electricity and so caution should be exercised when attempting to fit one.  If you are not completely confident then call in a qualified electrician.  However, if this is a job you feel you can tackle then save money by fitting it yourself.

In this guide we provide practical steps on fitting a new shower in your bathroom.


How to Install an Electric Shower


A little tip here… if your shower is not producing the powerful jets of water you once experienced it may be that the shower head needs cleaning.  Try this…

1. Removed the shower head

2. Take a plastic bag and fill about a 1/4 of the  bag with White Vinegar

3. Place the shower head in the bag of vinegar and leave for 2 or 3 hours

Generally a shower that does not produce a good stream of water is caused by the Limescale build up and the above will remove the limescale.  The full guide to the above can be seen at:
