Supplying both trade and domestic customers, one of the biggest questions our team gets asked is: ‘What’s the difference between a power shower and an electric shower?’ This post will answer that question.

Power showers explained

Typically, a power shower combines water from both your hot and cold water supplies. Power showers also contain an internal pump, which makes them ideal for use in homes and properties with low water pressure. They are usually installed on gravity fed systems, with a hot water cylinder. They can be either thermostatically controlled, or manually controlled and provide a fantastic, and powerful showering experience.

Electric showers explained

Electric showers draw cold water from your homes water supply, before heating the water internally to provide your desired temperature. As the electric shower is completely separate from your hot water supply, they can be used in any home regardless of the plumbing system (gravity fed, combi boiler etc) electric showers are particularly popular in family homes, where the hot water can easily be used up in a short space of time. They are also popular in homes which may have an unreliable hot water supply, as hot water is guaranteed in an instant.
