A wide variety of different shower systems

Often, when purchasing a bathroom suite or full shower enclosure, numerous essential accessories will be included as part of the package; the shower tray and waste are notable examples, but the actual shower system itself will feature only very rarely. This is partly due to the wide variety of different shower systems on the market – it is best to specifically choose your own system so you can select a design that matches your personal preferences and requirements.

There are several factors to consider before committing to your choice, such as your existing home water supply system. Combi boiler systems, for instance, will heat the water as and when it is needed, taking a supply from the mains and feeding it directly through to the faucet or shower head. Certain shower systems require a set minimum level of pressure to be operational, so if your property has low pressure, you may need to consider the addition of a water pump to enhance your home’s pressure capabilities. Otherwise, you’ll have to opt for a shower system that works at the existing low pressure level, likely ruling out any possibility of a power shower or other energy efficient system proving viable.
