Choosing The Best Shower

Posted on January 26, 2016 at 7:04 pm

There are three main types of shower which can be installed in your home, each of which has its own practicalities and benefits. When making your decision, you’ll need to take into account a number of factors, such as boiler type and water pressure, as well as personal preference. Each type of shower and the pros and cons which come with it are outlined below:

Electric Showers

Electric showers are a sensible, power-saving product. They heat water from your cold water supply as and when required, saving on unnecessary water heating and power usage. The main downside is that their flow tends to be weaker than that which you might get from other shower types. Electric showers may also change temperature considerably if water is being used elsewhere in the house, though some come with a built-in thermostat to help control this.

Mixer Showers

‘Mixer’ refers to the fact that this type of shower uses water from the hot and cold supplies, which means that hot water will already need to be available. The flow rate tends to be better than that of an electric shower. Sometimes these showers are designed specifically for high or low pressure water systems, though you’ll need to double check when making your purchase.

Power Showers

Power showers combine hot and cold water in the same way as a mixer shower. The advantage is that they also use a pump to ensure that the water flow is strong, which makes them a good choice for low pressure water systems. The disadvantage is that water usage is higher, and they can cost a lot to purchase and install.

Cleaning Your Showerhead With Vinegar

Posted on October 29, 2014 at 3:20 pm

Does your showerhead look like it’s clogged with limescale? Well, it’s time to clean it up in an eco-friendly manner of course!

Fill a saucepan up with distilled white vinegar up to a point where the showerhead’s submerged. Unscrew the showerhead and place it in the saucepan. Then place the saucepan on the stove and allow the showerhead to simmer till the build-up removes itself. Do not put it on high heat, as the showerhead may melt and also make sure it’s floating and not sitting on the base of the pan!

When you realise the dirt has removed, rinse it in water and screw it back to your shower. Then let the water run for a few minutes to make sure it’s fully-cleaned.

Frameless shower enclosures for your bathroom

Posted on November 18, 2013 at 6:45 pm

Frameless products and furniture are becoming rather important in today’s world. We don’t just want bulky, boring industrial items; we want them to appear delicate, designer and elegant. That’s exactly what a frameless style can bring to a bathroom.

Of course, as mentioned it’s not just bathrooms, TVs are now sold with a frameless style and the same design is incorporated into shower enclosures. The benefit of a frameless shower enclosure is definitely its class. At first glass it will appear to be made completely of glass, which definitely helps to give it an expensive look.

And obviously there is some frame there, otherwise it wouldn’t stay up. Frames enclosures are still strong, but they only have a very small tray, while many come with smoked ghlass options for added lavishness.
