WYB: Electric Showers Under £150

There’s nothing better than pressing a single button and having almost instant, temperature controlled water at your service. Have you ever had the ‘pleasure’ of trying to mix both hot and cold water taps to get the perfect temperature first thing in the morning or last thing at night? It can have you feeling like an 80’s Disc Jockey mixing records. It’ll therefore come as no surprise that electric showers are one of the most popular products in a modern bathroom.

In this week’s ‘What’s Your Budget’ feature we shower you with 5 fantastic electric showers under £150. What’s your budget for an electric shower? Can you buy an electric shower for less than £150? WYB finds out!

What is an electric shower?

An electric shower is usually fixed to the wall and connects to both the mains electricity and plumbing. It is commonly found as a plastic box, containing the inner workings including a heating element, and a separate slider rail kit which holds the the shower head and is typically adjustable. The two items are connected via the shower hose which carries water from the box to the shower head.

Thermostatic controls (temperature controls) are found on the shower box, which allow you to choose your desired water temperature, along with a power button and other features which may vary between models. The shower head may also have functions too including massaging features and a variety of sprays.

Choosing an electric shower under £150

When you’re choosing an electric shower on a budget it’s important to look at the features which are most important to you. You may find that an all singing all dancing model might just creep over budget, but are you really going to use all those features?

Design can also affect price with some of the brushed steel designs like this Triton Aspirante costing considerably more than their white counterparts in general.

The final thing to mention is brand. Just like with anything really, brand names can have a big impact on cost so it’s worth considering a brand which offers the best value.
