Water Pressure for Showers
Water pressure is measured in Bars, and it is a way of measuring the strength of the water flow as it travels through pipes. Water pressure is an important factor to look into prior to buying any shower as some showers will only work correctly if a certain level of water pressure is supplied. Water pressure can be measured by using a pressure gauge, however enlisting the help and advice of a specialist is a good idea as this will help when it comes to buying the right shower for your bathroom or en-suite.
The Water System in your Home
You will need to know which type of water system you have in your home. This will usually be one of the following a combination boiler gravity fed system, or an unvented hot water system.
If you have a combination boiler: these are boilers which normally allow for a higher water pressure. They do not require a separate hot water cylinder so are space saving boilers.
If you have a gravity fed system: comprising of a cold-water tank and a water cylinder, these systems are a good choice when supplying water in larger homes. They can also be upgraded with pumps to increase the pressure.
If you have an un-vented hot water system: this system allows a greater volume of hot water to be stored. These units feature a water cylinder which is heated by either a boiler or immersion heater.

Concealed showers give a more simplified visual look that sits well within both a modern and traditional designed bathroom. The concealed showers feature just an exposed arm and shower head at the top, as well as the shower valve panel/plate which regulates both the water temperature and the water flow. The plumbing pipework is all kept hidden from view as it is positioned behind the walls.
For an energy saving option, electric showers will help to keep costs down. Customers who are still looking for a more luxurious experience are also catered for thanks to the growing popularity of shower towers. Towers feature components such as body jets, and generally offer one of the most relaxing ways to have a shower.
There are lots of variations of shower heads from monsoon and drench type heads, square, round and pencil shapes, many come in both modern and traditional styles to suit any all designs of bathrooms. If you are looking to have a shower with 2 heads i.e. a drench head with a pencil style second head which is situated lower down the wall you just need to ensure that the correct type of shower valve is purchased with multiple outlets.
Thermostatic Mixer Shower
Thermostatic showers are ideal for a main bathroom where all the family use the shower. The key element with a thermostatic shower is safety as the shower regulates the temperature of the water coming out of it, which means you’ll never get scalded or suddenly find that the water has turned freezing cold.
