Showers And Plumbing

Taking a shower has a number of advan¬tages over bathing it is quicker and uses less water. But, depending on the existing plumbing system, some types of shower can be impossible to install without rad¬ical alterations. So check what is and is not possible before buying.

Some showers have simple hot and cold valves, like those on an ordinary mixer tap; others use one valve to control the amount of water (the flow), and another to control the temperature. The flow and temperature may also be con¬trolled by a single tap: or in some cases, only the temperature may be variable. The controls may be thermostatic, which keeps the temperature of the spray more stable. Thermostatic controls are easier and safer to use than non-thermoslatic.

Whatever which type of shower, the valve part can be connected to the outlet (the rose) by a rigid pipe or flexible hose. A rigid pipe may look neater but a flexible hose allows the rose to be positioned at different heights to suit different members of the family and to be used for hair washing if it is over the bath.

All types of shower can be mounted over the bath. Some can be mounted over separate shower trays: these are probably easier to use, but can require much more installation work.

Push-on hose
Ends push over existing bath taps. Cheap and no installation required, but water authorities frown on their use.

Bath/shower mixer
Easy to install re¬places existing bath taps; relatively inex¬pensive. Can be used only when hot and cold water come from a storage cistern or with certain multipoint gas water heaters.  

Shower mixer - non-thermostatic
Usually mounted over a separate shower tray may need a lot of plumbing and waste installation. Some types have hot and cold valves; others may have temperature and flow controls.

Shower mixer - thermostatic
Usually mounted over a separate shower tray may need a lot of plumbing and waste installation. Usually has temperature and flow controls.

Electric shower heater
Can be mounted over a bath or a separate shower tray. Takes its water from the mains cold water supply. Water is heated instan¬taneously as it passes through the heater - the spray may not be as forceful as with a conventional shower. Special electric wiring needed, but an electric shower can be used where a conventional type is impracticable.

Power shower
Both supplies to the mixer valve are pumped to give a choice of sprays. Needs separate cubicle and care¬ful plumbing. Uses more water.
