If you’ve had enough of low pressure in your shower, the Mira Go might just be the answer for you. Electric showers mix water from your hot and cold water supplies to create the ideal temperature, while using an integral pump to improve your water flow, meaning an end to weak, unsatisfying showers.

If you’ve purchased a Mira Go and need to know how to install it, watch the video below and follow our step-by-step guide to get it up and running quickly. You should be a fully qualified electrician to install an electric shower. If you aren’t a professional but are still confident in your ability to install it yourself, you should contact your local authority to arrange a qualified inspector to sign off your work.
