A shower control valve is a unit that controls the temperature and flow rate of water to your shower.
The water flow you wish to achieve will play an important role in the shower control. The electric shower, the mixer manual shower, the thermostatic shower, the shower panel, the digital shower all offer alternative approaches to showering.
There are many considerations you will need to make alongside choosing your shower control:
What showering experience you wish to achieve i.e. shower cubicle, wet room, steam shower etc. Do you need a shower that requires a shower pump?
Mixer manual showers offer an inexpensive solution to conveniently mix cold and hot water to create the best possible shower temperature
As the name suggests a mixer manual shower is quite literally a means of mixing hot water from your hot water supply and cold water from the mains to create the ideal temperature.
Typically mixer manual showers are relatively inexpensive in comparison to thermostatic models, but fluctuations in temperature can be expected

We’ve all been in a shower when the toilet has flushed downstairs or the washing machine has come on and taken a sharp intake of breath as the temperature plummets!
To maintain a constant temperature without having to fiddle with the hot and cold water inlets, thermostatic shower valves are the only option. The temperature can be pre-set and the valve will ensure that the temperature is maintained to within + or – a degree. What’s more for a family bathroom a thermostatic shower is the only sensible option. You can rest assured that a child cannot scald itself when the water is being pre-mixed to a prescribed temperature.

Shower Panels, are multi-outlet showers – providing a luxurious combination of body jets and shower heads, in one complete unit.
Most shower panels are thermostatic and are pre-plumbed which makes them very easy to fit and they can be used in shower enclosures or over a bath.
They draw hot and cold water from your household supplies and are ideal for homes that have a readily available supply of stored hot water. They can also be used with some types of combination boiler (but it is always advisable to check with your boiler manufacturer first).
Most Shower Panels give best performance when combined with a separate shower pump of 1.5 bar.
Electric Showers are an economical solution if your home does not store a lot of warm water.
Most electric showers draw water direct from a cold mains supply and only heat the water as it is used. This makes them very economical, giving instantaneous showering, even in the summer when you may not have stored hot water.
Electric showers can be installed into homes where there is not a stored hot water supply and such flexibility means that they can be fitted into most domestic situations.
This stylish range of electric showers offer a selection of power ratings, starting with a basic, low cost unit, to a high performance model. If you prefer a more powerful shower, simply choose a higher kilowatt rating for a greater flow rate.
