Top 5 Best Electric Shower Reviews In The UK
As we mentioned above, we invested a copious amount of hours testing these electric showers. Across the way, these five stood out as the best the market offered. So check out our reviews to see which electric showers nail the features you care most about!
1.Mira Azora Thermostatic Electric Shower
When it comes to providing a stellar shower experience, Mira’s electric showers rank among the best. And, thankfully, the Mira Azora Thermostatic electric shower is no exception to the rule.
Right out of the box, you’ll find a sleek and modern shower. In fact, the frosted glass and sage-green base fit nicely in any up to date bathroom, which is definitely a good thing. The only real downside here is how the settings display. Instead of printing the heat and pressure settings atop the glass, Mira printed them on the base—in other words, behind the frosted glass. So viewing and selecting your settings can be a bit tricky as they do appear blurry while showering. But it’s not too hefty of a price to pay for an electric shower that looks this sharp!
As far as the actual shower experience goes, everything works quite well. For starters, the thermostatic temperature stability ensures water temperatures remain constant—this means your warm showers stay warm. And quite frankly, this shower does a fantastic job of keeping constant water temperatures—much better than other electric showers you’ll find on the market. Also, don’t worry about the power here. At 9.8 kW, you’ll get a good shower.
Another nice touch is the sensi-flo technology. Here, the shower prevents scalding anytime the showerhead or hose become blocked. Add to this the phased shutdown process (where hot water flushes out of the system when switched off), and you’re looking at an exceptionally safe shower. And there’s also the Clearscale technology, which prevents limescale buildup by 50%. Thus, this shower will last you for plenty of years to come. In like manner, cleaning this shower could not be easier. Simply rub clean the nozzle, and that’s it. So you won’t need to worry about any exhaustive maintenance here.
For settings, you have three different flows to choose from. You’ll also get separate temperature controls to achieve the perfect shower. Overall, nothing is hard to use here. And with a max temperature of 48° C, you’ll surely find a shower setting that works for you here. To help even more, the showerhead offers 4 different sprays — eco, start, soothe, and force. So, again, you’ll have no problems achieving the perfect shower!
Lastly, Mira keeps you protected with a nice two-year manufacturer’s guarantee.
- Easy to use.
- Stylish and sleek.
- Exceptional at keeping temperatures constant—regardless of outside temperatures.
- Hard to view and alter settings as a result of frosted glass.
There’s no denying this Mira electric shower is one of the best (and prettiest) you’ll find on the market. It’s hard to find gripes when everything simply works so well. So if you’re looking for a comfortable shower and don’t mind dropping a few extra pounds for it, the Mira Azora Thermostatic electric shower is an option to consider.
2.Triton Collection 2 Electric Shower
Want a shower that offers plenty of options? Then look no further than the Triton Collection 2!
As we mentioned, variety is this Triton electric shower’s strong point. Even when selecting your shower, you get your choice of five varied colours—as a whole, they all look trendy and modern. So there’s no denying that all these colours will make a great addition to your bathroom. Add to this the easy to clean chrome plated head, and you’re looking at one of the prettiest shower systems out there.
Looks aside, you’ll get plenty of options from the five showerhead spray patterns. This is quite the impressive number for an electric shower—especially when considering many don’t even offer the option. So if you’re looking to customise your showers, then the Triton Collection 2 is just the electric shower for that.
When it comes to other shower options, you’ll find the typical three power settings here (high, economy, and cold). And selecting them is pretty easy and straightforward. Do note that this shower will reach a max temperature of 42°C. As far as the power itself goes, you have your choice between 8.5 kW and 9.5 kW — not the strongest options out there, but definitely enough to get the job done and then some! Especially when considering the comfy 5.1 l/min flow rate. There’s also a nice phased shutdown feature that prevents limescale from building. So your showerhead will pour water for some moments after shutting off. But really, this process removes the gunk that damages your shower.
When installing this shower, everything feels as easy as possible. The swivel-fit for left and right side water connections makes installing this shower effortless. For protection, Triton offers 2-year parts and labour guarantee.
- 5 Shower Head Spray Patterns.
- Easy to clean.
- Comfortable to use.
- Small silver font is hard to read.
The Triton Collection 2 electric shower excels at providing a shower catered to you. If customisation is something you want for your showers, the five spray showerhead and three flow settings will get the job done. Just keep in mind that the font for temperature and flow settings can be difficult to read.
3.Bristan Bliss 3 Electric Shower
Are you looking for some (by that, we mean a lot) of power in your shower? Then be sure to check out the Bristan Bliss 3. As a whole, this happens to work as the best 10.5 kW shower on the market. But even if you don’t want that much power, you can also purchase this electric shower in 8.5 kW and 9.5 kW. Either way, you’ll receive a nice 5.0 l/min flow rate, which is enough for a relaxing shower.
Along with offering quite a bit of power, this electric shower is downright sleek and modern. Everything from the soft touch controls to digital LED temperature displays present a clean and polished design. And you get your choice between a black or white colour — both of which compliment any bathroom perfectly.
Installation is also pretty easy with multiple water and cable entry points. Add to this the included swivel outlet, and you’ll find that this electric shower works great with just about any shower system.
Now, as far as the actual shower goes, you won’t be disappointed by any means. For starters, you get the typical three flow settings (cold, warm, and hot), which allow for some customisation. And that’s not all! This shower also offers three spray modes (spray, jet spray, combination) for you to play with. And it’s pretty easy to work as well—just twist and click the shower head until it reaches the setting of your choice. Plus, you get a digital LED display for your water temperature which eliminates much of the guesswork with a typical shower. In fact, you can say goodbye to those days of rapidly jumping out of a scalding hot shower from accidentally raising the temperature too high. There’s even a warm-up mode to ensure you never jump into your relaxing showers too early. And adjusting the temperature is as easy as turning the separate rotary dial.
Naturally, warm water isn’t great when it causes scalding. But, that’s not a problem here. Instead, Bristan offers a nice phased shutdown feature. This is where the shower flushes out all hot water after each use. So it’s a nice safety feature.
Unfortunately, not all is great with temperature here, as the water temps do tend to fluctuate while showering. So your hot showers will have a habit of dropping to lukewarm when you don’t want them to do so. But to compensate, you will find a temperature control device in this shower that prevents water from ever raising too high—so no more scalding.
No surprise here—this is a great shower. And to help you sustain it, Bristan included an anti-limescale feature. And as an added bonus, you can rub the shower head clean in seconds to further reduce limescale. By doing so, you’re prolonging the life of this shower by quite a few years.
Of course, things don’t always go according to plan. Thankfully, Bristan understands this and offers a 2-year manufacturer’s warning.
- Easy to fit.
- Reaches temperatures quickly.
- LED temperature display removes the guesswork.
- Looks sleek and modern.
- Temperatures fluctuate while showering.
Who could deny the Bristan Bliss 3 electric shower is stellar? It’s hard enough to find a shower that looks this sleek. Add to this, and a digital LED display and some fun temperature settings, and you’re looking at the best 10.5 kW electric shower. The temperatures might struggle to remain constant, but if you can get past that, you’ll find everything to love about this electric shower.
4.Mira Sport Max Electric Shower
When it comes to electric showers, the Mira brand easily ranks near the top. And if you’ve ever wondered why, check out the Mira Sport Max. Nearly everything here exudes what you’d want when looking for the best electric shower in the UK.
Visually, this electric shower boasts a clean and cool design. It might not look like the flashiest electric shower out there. But there’s also no denying this device will fit any modern bathroom well.
Thankfully, the package doesn’t end with a decent design. For the actual shower, Mira offers it’s standard pressure stabilized temperature control technology. Compared to other electric showers on the market, we found this to work the best at keeping water temperatures constant. So no worrying about your warm shower suddenly feeling like you stepped into a Yukon tundra—warm water temperatures stay warm!
As far as customisation goes, you get the typical three flow settings you’d expect (high, eco, low). Do you need just a bit more flow? Then you’ll want to take a look at the airboost option. This feature will increase the water flow by 30%. You’re not actually getting any more water here, but the water will pour faster and with more force. Sadly, this feature is pretty noisy. But, thankfully, it does add some comfort to your showers. You’ll also get an Opti-flow feature which optimises your water flow throughout the year.
Obviously, you get control over the water temperature as well—up to 52°C to be exact. And with a flow of 6.66L/min, you’re looking at quite the comfortable shower. Another nice customisable feature is the showerhead with four spray settings. The only downside here is that we had a hard time finding the right setting. We found the settings were either super wide or too narrow—there’s no real in-between here. But the overall shower experience still remained comfortable, so it’s a minor issue. Plus, this shower is available in 9.0 and 10.8 kW models. So, whichever choice you select, you’re getting some impressive power by electric shower standards.
Of course, you’ll want to keep this shower for the long term, right? Thankfully, Mira understands and offers its sensi-flo technology. And no, this isn’t just some silly marketing term. Instead, this is a feature that will prevent scalding if the showerhead/hose becomes blocked, or you lose water pressure. You’ll also get Mira’s reliable Clearscale technology. While not the most exciting of shower features, this will cut your limescale by up to 50%, which keeps the shower running as long as possible.
To keep you protected, Mira provides a 2-year warranty.
- Great anti-limescale features.
- Strong flow.
- Sturdy and well-built.
- Spray settings could improve.
- Airboost is noisy.
If budget’s not a problem for you, then the Mira Sport Max electric shower will cover all you’ll ever need. As far as showers go, the flow features and stable temperature will offer you an amazing shower. The spray settings could improve, but that’s a minor gripe when looking at all this electric shower has to offer.
5.Triton Seville Electric Shower
Whoever said a cheap electric shower can’t get the job done? In fact, don’t let this shower’s price fool you. Sure, it might be a budget price, but you’ll find the Triton Seville performs on par with the best!
Starting off with looks, things could definitely be better. As a whole, this electric shower looks plasticky and cheap. But, considering the price, can we really expect more here? And, on the bright side, everything the dial controls are straight forward and easy to use. Plus, installation is easy and hassle-free as well. Overall the many cable and water entry points will allow this electric shower to fit in just about any bathroom. So, it might not be pretty, but everything here is easy to figure out.
We know the design could be better. But, as we all know, looks aren’t everything. And thankfully, the Triton Seville delivers when it comes to delivering a relaxing shower. For achieving that perfect shower, you can choose from 10 different temperature settings — 5 warm and five cold. It’s enough to find the right comfort zone for just about anyone.
Then you’ll find the flow settings, where you get the three basics (cold, eco, and high). This is actually pretty surprising when considering the low price of this electric shower. Even more surprising is how this budget electric shower can come with power up to 10.5 kW. So it can heat and send large amounts of water at once if you need. But even at that, the shower does come in decent 7.5 kW, 8.5 kW, and 9.5 kW models as well if you prefer.
Now, are you looking for some bells and whistles? Well, you’ll find the showerhead holder is adjustable—and, that’s about it. Sadly, you find too many stellar features here that set this electric shower apart from others on the market. For example, you’re only getting one spray feature here. It sounds a bit boring, but remember, this is a budget electric shower. So could we really ask for much more here? And in fairness, this Triton electric shower does a fantastic job of delivering with the basic features.
For protection, you do get a 2-year full part and labour guarantee.
- Cheap—great value for the money.
- Simple and easy to use.
- Not the sleekest electric shower out there.
- No flashy or special features.
Here’s the good news. As a whole, the Triton Seville is easily the best budget electric shower you’ll find on the market. All the basic features work remarkably. In fact, this shower can compete with top of the line models in that regard. So if you’re looking for just an electric shower, this is the model for you! But if you care about some extra bells and whistles, you might want to look elsewhere (and prepare to spend more).
