Electric showers are ideal for families and households where there is a limited supply of hot water. Electric showers are always ready to use, any time of the day or night and, at Mira Showers, we have a wide range of electric showers to suit your needs, including the UK’s most powerful electric showers, stylish, glass-fronted options, easy replacement showers and affordable upgrade options. We’ve put together some useful information to help you choose the right electric shower for you.

Longer-lasting

All Mira electric showers feature Mira Clearscale™ technology. Given time, limescale can build-up in your shower, in the same way as your kettle. This clever technology reduces limescale by up to 50% for a better performing, longer-lasting shower. So, whichever Mira Electric shower you choose, you can rest assured that it will out-perform the competition.

If you are looking for style and performance at a great price then our Mira Enthuse ticks both boxes. Available in an 8.5kW, 9.5kW and 10.8kW this shower is perfect if you’re replacing an existing shower or installing a new bathroom. Plus the separate power and temperature controls allow you to fine-tune your perfect showering experience.

The Mira Enthuse features stylish chrome detail on the dials and a chrome showerhead, giving it a contemporary look that will perfectly complement your bathroom fittings.

Alternatively, another great option is Mira Vie. Recently updated with new contemporary aesthetics, the Mira Vie is an affordable and long-lasting shower with an Eco setting designed to save water. It features separate power and temperature dials with chrome detailing and a separate on/off button.

When replacing a shower without redecorating, one of the most important factors is to ensure minimal disruption to the connections and tiles - as well as ensuring it will fit in the same space! The Mira Jump Multi-Fit was designed with space and flexible installation in mind, as it allows for left or right-hand cable and pipe connections. It is a suitable replacement for existing Mira electric showers as well as other shower brands, even down to the adjustable slide bar which fits over holes left by a previous shower fittings kit.

The Mira Jump Multi-Fit comes in four-kilowatt ratings – 7.5kW, 8.5kW, 9.5kW and 10.8kW – making it extremely versatile when it comes to replacing your existing shower. If you are considering going for a higher kilowatt rating, be sure to consult a Part P electrician before purchasing your new shower, as you may need your electrical supply cable upgraded.

If you have a higher bathroom budget, why not go for the Mira Sport Multi-Fit™ With improved fittings, the Mira Sport range is incredibly reliable and better still, this Multi-Fit option is as easy to fit and easy to use as ever. Installation for water and electrics can be left hand or right hand and the fittings kit is adjustable too. It also includes a large 110mm adjustable showerhead and soap dish. The Mira Sport Multi-Fit™ features a pressure stabilised temperature control helping to compensate for pressure changes and keep showering temperature within safe limits as well as phased shutdown which flushes hot water from the tank to make it safe for the next user.

The word “performance” within showering is often linked to high pressure. The Mira Elite QT is unique in that it offers great performance, even at low pressure. Designed specifically to be fed from a cold gravity storage tank, the Mira Elite QT’s integrated pump ensures a strong and more consistent flow as well as being 75% quieter than any other shower of its kind.
