Do you want to upgrade your current shower? Do you want to look at repairing your current shower? Don’t worry AM Elements are here for your every shower need.

Different types of showers:

Electric Showers:

Electric showers are one of the most versatile types of shower. Electric showers are ideal if you want instant hot water and the potential for energy savings (dependent on usage of course!).

  • Electric showers require a good water pressure- either from your mains supply or a shower pump.
  • They do NOT require hot water from your boiler or tank.
  • Compact and easy to install.

An electric shower is, as you might expect, heated by an electrical heating element. Instead of taking hot water from your boiler or hot water tank, they can instantly heat up water themselves from a cold supply, with an in-built heating device. They work by mixing this hot water with cold water to reach your preferred temperature.

Mixer Showers:

A Mixer Shower differs from an electric shower by needing an existing source of hot water. To output at your perfect temperature, a mixer shower does just what its name suggests – it mixes your hot and cold water together before sending it out of your shower head.

  • Requires both a hot and cold water supply
  • Stronger water flow than electric showers
  • Concealed styles are available
Power Showers:

Power showers are usually the preferred option for houses with gravity-fed water systems or where water pressure is particularly low. As they work in a similar way to a mixer shower, you also need to make sure you have a large enough hot water tank to suit your requirements – if not, you do run the risk of your shower running cold after multiple uses. 

If you have a combi boiler, your water system will run at mains pressure, meaning it should already be pumped; an electric shower or mixer shower are your best options.

  • Like a mixer shower, they require both a hot and cold water supply
  • Offers the best in terms of water pressure
  • They tend to use more water than other types of shower
Digital & Smart Showers:

Digital showers control the temperature and flow electronically whereas a smart shower can also be controlled via a smart app or via Alexa or Google.

There are different types of digital showers to suit almost any water system. If you have a low pressure or gravity-fed system, pumped options are available. There are also high pressure versions which have been designed specifically for use with mains-pressured water systems or combi boilers.

Shower Towers:

A truly luxurious shower! Featuring overhead drenchers, perfected to provide the optimum water flow. You’re guaranteed to get a truly indulgent rainfall showering experience; similar to that of a spa experience!

Some shower towers even come complete with a shower handset, providing true flexibility.
