Q. What is a shower kit?
A. A shower kit is exactly as it sounds, it will feature a valve and the correct amount of outlets for that valve. Ideal if you want a pre-made set with all of the shower items together, rather than picking individual items.
Q. What types of shower kit are there?
A. There are four different types of shower kit, concealed, digital, electric and exposed. A concealed shower kit will feature a concealed valve and outlets suitable for use with that valve. A digital shower kit will feature a digital shower valve and associated outlets. The electric shower kits will come with the controlling unit and usually a riser rail and head. Finally, the exposed shower kits feature an exposed shower valve, and associated outlets.
Q. Why should I choose a shower kit?
A. A shower kit is a great choice if you just want to order all of your shower kit items together, or if you want everything to be the same brand and range. The sets will generally include everything you will need other than fittings, fixings or pipework, and are perfect for saving time picking out individual items. There is also a huge range of sets available on our website, so the chances of finding finding your ideal set are very good.
Q. Are shower kits suitable for use in cloakroom bathrooms?
A. Generally speaking to be classed as a cloakroom bathroom you would have limited space, and are unlikely to have room for a shower enclosure or bath, meaning that you would have no use for a shower kit.
Q. What things should I consider before purchasing a shower kit?
A. You need to consider how many outlets and what outlets you are hoping for, and how much pressure you have available. This is particularly important when looking at kits that have a thermostatic shower valve, as these will require more pressure than an electric, or manual shower valve, for example. On concealed shower kits where you have options for larger shower heads, spouts and massage jets, you will also need to bear your system pressure in mind. Each advert will list the minimum pressure required.
