Taking a shower today is more than about simply washing – thanks to a fantastic new range of water jets and high-powered shower sprays on the market today from such leading manufacturers as Mira, Triton and Hudson Reed.
In fact, there’s such a variety of new ways to wash standing up that, understandably, many of us are eager to try out some of the latest shower devices designed to bring us nothing but bathroom pleasure.
Before you rush out and flex your credit card though, it’s worth taking a look through all the possible options to find out which is most appropriate for your bathroom.
They’ve been around for some time but there’s still one of the most popular sellers in the world of bathroom showrooms. Electric showers work by connecting with the main system and heating the cold water to flow warm through the shower head. It’s easy to stall, inexpensive to purchase and can be placed just about anywhere in the bathroom, provided it can connect to the main water supply. An electric shower will always work – even if the rest of the heating in your home fails.
Power showers are initially more expensive than electric showers – but there’s a reason for that. The showering experience is fab. The increased cost of the power shower is all to do with the technology (cold and hot water is mixed together while an integrated pump ensures the water runs at speed). The good news is that because it only heats the water being used, the costs work out in the long run. Power showers are very good for bathrooms with a low water pressure supply.
The aptly-named Mixer showers combine both hot and cold water to produce the perfect temperature for your shower. They’re suitable for mains-fed water systems, those which operate with high pressure, low pressure, or with a tank. Because there’s no bulky electrics attached to a mixer shower it looks especially good in a modern minimalist style bathroom – especially when fitted with a concealed valve.
That freezing cold morning shower will always be a thing of the past when you install a digital shower in your home. That’s because the shower will tell you when the water’s perfect temperature-wise. And it won’t take long to heat up either. It’s all effortlessly controlled by you via a push button system. This is digital technology at its best.
For those who enjoy variety when it comes to their morning (or evening shower) the shower tower is perfect. The tower can hold various types of shower heads, body jets and controls – all on the one panel to make sure no shower experience is ever the same two days in a row.
Shower body jets
Shower body jets can be an incredibly relaxing sensation since they do the job of massaging the body as well as helping to wash it. Despite the impressive water pressure, our Techflow range at Bella Bathrooms is so quiet that decibel-wise you’d hardly know it was on. Being very low in energy consumption Techflow also boast impressive eco credentials.
