• ELECTRIC SHOWER SOLUTION

All Electric Showers are fitted with a pressure sensor and if the pressure of the incoming mains cold water supply falls below 0.8 Bar, the electric shower will switch off heating elements and you will be left with a cold shower or boiling hot water. Adding a Shower Power Booster will increase the pressure and flow rates to stop this from happening. If your incoming cold water supply is exceptionally low then you may need to add a second pump to double boost

Although a Shower Power Booster will keep your electric shower active, it is important to note that all electric showers are limited by the KW rate to the amount of water it can heat, we would therefore advise that you measure the flow rate from your electric shower as you may already be getting the maximum flow rate from your electric shower:

  • 7.5 KW Electric Shower will give you 3.5 litres a minute
  • 9.8 KW Electric Shower will give you 4.7 litres a minute
  • 12.5 KW Electric Shower will give you 6.0 litres a minute
