A winning combination
Westminster City Council has a long-standing partnership with EffectAble – specialists in adapting homes to make them accessible to the elderly and less able. At the multi-storey Verney House, where a conventional gravity-fed drainage system just wouldn't work for a wet-room design, there was only once choice: a unique wireless shower and pump combination, developed by Mira Showers and Whale.
The Mira Advance Flex Extra shower and Whale Instant Match Wireless pump combination was the perfect solution, offering the efficient drainage needed. As the shower and pump are connected wirelessly, there was no need to fit connecting cables or flow sensors in the walls – so the installation avoided structural changes to the apartment. Instead, the pump is simply located within 5m of the shower, in the most convenient and discreet part of the bathroom. It's not only an incredibly neat solution; it also makes installation fast and simple. In fact, it took just three weeks to refit the entire apartment from start to finish – including fitting an adapted kitchen.
