Shower Mixers To Avoid –

After guiding you through the best in class, it’s key to also highlight the other side of the spectrum: Shower Mixers To Avoid.

Our assessment has revealed certain models with shortcomings, such as poor durability, unreliable water pressure, and complicated installation. We highlight these below to help you make a more informed choice and avoid potential disappointments.

Hapilife Chrome Thermostatic Bar Shower Mixer Valve

Hapilife Chrome Thermostatic Bar Shower Mixer Valve


The Hapilife Chrome Thermostatic Bar Shower Mixer Valve is one such product that, while promising in features, presents a few challenges worth considering.

With an adjustable temperature range of 20-50°C and a design that prevents dripping, the Hapilife valve combines practicality with a sleek, modern aesthetic. Its solid brass construction and polished chrome finish promise longevity and style in your bathroom.

However, several reviewers have reported some concerns:

Key Drawbacks: 
  • Temperature Fluctuations: Especially noticeable in combination boiler systems, some users have experienced inconsistent water temperatures, which often require a valve cartridge replacement.
  • Dripping Issues: There have been instances of water dripping from the shower head when turned off, potentially needing new seals or a cartridge change.
  • Reduced Water Flow Rate: A few reviewers have noted a decrease in water flow, though this can usually be rectified with regular maintenance.

Despite its appealing design and construction, these operational issues with the Hapilife mixer valve are significant. For a more reliable option, we recommend the Bristan H0920 FRENZY Contemporary Cool Touch Bar Mixer.

This model is renowned for its dependable performance and Cool Touch technology, ensuring a safe and consistent shower experience with minimal upkeep.

Ibergrif – Concealed Shower Mixer Tap with Body Valve

Ibergrif - Concealed Shower Mixer Tap with Body Valve


The Ibergrif Concealed Shower Mixer Tap with Body Valve, despite its appealing features, has notable drawbacks that might influence your buying decision.

This model boasts water-saving ceramic cartridge technology and a high shiny chrome coating, promising both efficiency and a scratch-resistant, long-lasting finish. Made of stainless steel, it offers durability and a sleek, modern look.

However, there are key issues that have surfaced:



Key Drawbacks: 
  • Leaks: A significant number of users have encountered leaking problems. Whether due to installation challenges or product quality, this issue can lead to water wastage and potential damage in your bathroom space.
  • Water Pressure: There are reports from customers about difficulties handling high water pressure. This can adversely affect the performance of the shower mixer, potentially leading to an inconsistent shower experience.
  • Temperature Adjustment: Some users have also faced challenges in adjusting the water temperature. This can be a major inconvenience, impacting the overall user experience and comfort during use.

Despite its modern design and eco-friendly features, the Ibergrif model’s issues with leaks, pressure handling, and temperature control are concerning.

These factors indicate that it might not be as dependable as options like the Hansgrohe Ecostat 1001 CL Thermostatic Mixer Shower, which is renowned for consistent performance and quality.

What to Look For In A Mixer Shower

If you are in the market for a new mixer shower, it’s not only important to look at the price but also to delve a little deeper into a few other considerations to ensure you get the best value and experience.

Here’s a few pointers….

Essential Considerations

  • Water Pressure Considerations: If you have low water pressure and no pump in-line you will typically need to stick with a regular mixer type as most thermostatically controlled shower mixers require a minimum of 1.5 Bar pressure
  • Material and Build Quality: Consider durable materials like brass or stainless steel, which provide longevity and resistance to wear, reducing the need for frequent replacements.
  • Brand Reputation and Warranty: Look for reputable brands offering substantial warranties, like a 5-year guarantee, for quality assurance and peace of mind.
  • Compatibility with Existing Plumbing: Make sure the mixer shower fits with your existing setup without having the added expense of moving too much pipework around.
  • Safety Features: Choose mixers with safety features like anti-scald devices, which are particularly important for households with children. A thermostatic mixer typically has a safety release button Vs a regular mixer, like the GROHE BauEdge featured above.

Design Preferences

  • Concealed vs. Exposed Mixer: Decide based on your bathroom’s design, like opting for a concealed mixer for a minimalist look or an exposed mixer for easier access and maintenance.
  • Aesthetic Appeal: Choose a design that enhances your bathroom’s style, such as contemporary mixers for modern bathrooms.

Advanced Options

  • Eco-Friendly Options: Consider eco-friendly features like low-flow technology to help conserve water and potentially reduce utility bills.
  • Ease of Cleaning and Maintenance: Look for mixers that are easy to maintain, such as those with anti-limescale technology, to save time and effort.
  • Advanced Features: Explore mixers with modern features like digital temperature displays for enhanced convenience and a luxurious shower experience.

Price Considerations

  • Budget vs. Value: Find a balance between your budget and the mixer’s features to get the best value, ranging from basic models around £50 to high-end options over £300.
  • Long-Term Savings: Investing in a quality mixer can lead to long-term savings on repairs and utilities, in particular replacement thermostatic cartridges don’t come cheap, and budget mixers can sometimes be a false economy. Not to mention the pain of having to change every couple of years or so.

FAQ’s

Conclusion

To summarise our top three picks for the best shower mixer valve are Hansgrohe Ecostat, Hansgrohe SelectShower, and Bristan FRENZY.

These are all thermostatic shower mixer valves that we would fit in our bathrooms and are from reputable brands with good after-sales support, which offers some added peace of mind.

Best Power Showers[In Order]

1. Editors Pick: Aqualisa Aquastream Power Shower

Powerful, reliable, durable, are three words that can be used to describe the exquisite power shower from Aqualisa. It really boosts the water pressure in your shower, giving you the opportunity to really enjoy it instead of suffering through barely a trickle of water.

Features
  • Size: 16 x 18 x 32cm 
  • Style: Thermostatic Control
  • Flow Rate: 10L, 18L
  • Spray Patterns: 4
  • Finish: Chrome 

Thanks to the thermostatic control, you will find that it maintains a constant temperature at all times and through all conditions.

To do this, it dynamically adjusts the combination of hot and cold water to offset those usual changes (no more shrieks as the temp changes). 

It comes with four different spray patterns, allowing you to tailor your shower according to your needs. This even includes an eco-mode, which helps you save water by using less water. You can switch between modes using a handy pull ring on the head. 

Looking to adjust the flow? That’s no problem. You can choose between two flow rates, one of which is 10L per minute and the other being 18L per minute. Alongside the fully adjustable head height, you can have the perfect shower in no time at all. 

An important thing to note is that this shower can only be used on a gravity-fed system and cannot be used on a high-pressure one. So, before you buy make sure you have the right system in your home for this power shower to get the job done.

Installation is nice and easy, and it won’t take long to get things going. Just make sure to set aside a couple of hours to familiarise yourself with the system and the instructions. Furthermore, it’s just an exceptional looking model that will certainly add some spice to your bathroom setup. 

  • Maintains a constant temperature no matter the condition to keep you a priority 
  • Boosts that pressure high so that you get the shower you deserve

2. Runner Up: Mira XS Event Power Shower

Powerful, reliable, durable, are three words that can be used to describe the exquisite power shower from Aqualisa.

It really boosts the water pressure in your shower, giving you the opportunity to really enjoy it instead of suffering through barely a trickle of water. 

Features
  • Size: 11.5 x 21 x 31cm 
  • Style: Thermostatic Control
  • Flow Rate: 14L
  • Spray Patterns: 4
  • Finish: Polished

Looking for a good time? That’s something this shower can practically guarantee every time you step inside. The way this model increases water pressure ensures powerful jets of water are hitting your body at all times, leaving you feeling clean and relaxed. 

The thermostatic control means that it remains at a consistent temperature, so if you’re tired of that one person who turns the tap on while you’re showering (we see you, don’t try to hide) you can rest easy knowing that your shower won’t be ruined again. 

The pump installed in this model is both reliable and powerful, taking water from the hot and cold water supplies in your home before combining them in the pump so that you can avoid low pressure and keep a steady flow rate, which is pretty nice at 14L per minute. 

The fact that there are four fantastic spray patterns for you to choose from means that you can benefit from a soothing shower that is perfectly customised to suit your needs at the time. As for the controls? Well, they’re easy to read and access for minimal effort and maximum chill. 

The showerhead on this power shower is also easy to clean, with silicone spray nozzles that simply need to be wiped down after use to prevent the potential build-up of limescale and other mineral debris in the showerhead (that hard water life, eh?). 

  • Understated design that just screams modernity for a subtle look
  • Thermostatic controls to keep the temperature steady for your comfort
  • Four different spray patterns so that you can enjoy the shower of your dreams
  • Provides a steady flow rate that ensures you can shower just the way you deserve

3. Budget Pick: Mira Vigour Power Shower

Classically designed, this power shower is sure to liven up your morning. Connecting to gravity-fed systems, it hooks up your hot and cold water before combining them to really pump out the power and fix those low-pressure problems you’ve been having.

  • Size: 25.4 x 53.4 x 78.4cm 
  • Style: Thermostatic Control
  • Flow Rate (Per Min): 14L
  • Spray Patterns: 5
  • Finish: Polished

The flow rate is steady at a very nice 14L per minute, keeping things consistent so that you don’t have to worry about losing pressure. What’s more, you have five spray settings to choose from - never say we don’t leave you spoilt for choice. 

What we really appreciate is the thermostatic control. This means that you won’t experience a fluctuation in temperature, even if the pressure drops a little or someone decides to switch a tap on. It keeps things steady and consistent (we all need at least one constant in life, right?). 

The controls do not get easier than this, and you will find that they are all located on one simple dial on the main body of the shower. No more where that thing-a-ma-jig when you’re trying to chill, you can just kick back. Oh, and there’s a soap tray, we always like one of those.

If you’re part of the #JustHardWaterThings group, you’ll understand the need for a showerhead that is easy to clean and maintain. Limescale-be-gone with this model, and you just wipe down the silicone nozzles after use to prevent those nasty little minerals from congregating.

  • Affordable price with a stylish design that doesn’t scream cheap
  • Thermostatic control because you’re the king (or queen) of the shower
  • Five spray patterns because you’re worth it, and your body deserves it
  • Steady flow rate to ensure that you’re always having the time of your life
  • Easy to clean and easy to install because life’s too short for hassle

Affordable doesn’t have to mean cheap, and this model from Mira certainly proves that point. However, if you’re still not feeling completely satisfied with our top three, we’re sure the rest of our excellent choices will be more suited to you. Make sure you check them out below.

Carefully designed for high-pressure showers, you will find this model has a minimum bar requirement of one and a maximum of six for a great flow rate (and not the kind of bar that will quench your thirst, we were disappointed too).

This model of showerhead has been designed for homes with high-pressure, allowing you to take advantage of a steady flow rate (take that, fluctuating temperatures). The minimum requirement is one bar of pressure with a maximum of six, a nice variety of options.

This shower has not one, not two, not three, but FOUR spray settings for you to choose from. These are Rain, Normal, Shampoo, and Massage. The latter of these really works out those tight knots from a long, tense, day, so why not take the time to get to know it better?

Limescale got you down? Yeah, we’ve been there. The innovative Quick Clean system introduced with this showerhead means you simply need to wipe down the silicone nozzles after use to help maintain its cleanliness and prevent mineral build up. #HardWaterProblems, right?

Q: Do you need to hold the switch down to use this hoover or can you just switch it on/off? 

A: No you can just simply switch it on and off

What to Look For?

When attempting to invest in a water saving showerhead, you’ll need to examine a few factors. Below, you’ll discover some of the most pertinent ones to take into account.

Electric Shower?

If you have an electric shower you shouldn't install a water saving shower head, these generally have an integrated flow regulator, and adding further reduction in flow could cause water to build up in the heater tank and overheat.

Flow Rate

The unit’s flow rate is truly the most important. This figure will tell you precisely how much water the showerhead will utilise. Opting for a lower rating in this category can help you save an increased amount of money.

Typically, the flow rate on a standard shower running from the home combi-boiler uses 15 litres of water per minute. Most of the shower heads we feature here have a flow rate of 6-9 Litres.

Switching from a regular shower head to a eco model will reduce your water and heating usage by around 50%

Quality

It goes without saying.make sure you check customer reviews for any showerheads you are considering, and in general try ad stick to big name brands that have stood the test of time.

Warranty

Finally, you should know that some showerheads come with an extensive warranty. Truthfully, a lengthier warranty is always better. It’ll help to ensure that the showerhead lasts for an extensive period of time and will also deliver added peace of mind.

Now, it is time to check out some of the best products on the market. Reviews for the best water saving showerheads will be provided below.

Through our extensive testing we were super impressed with the performance and quality of the Hansgrohe Raindance Select S 50, though we appreciate the price certainly isn't on the lower end, so if budget is a key consideration look at models Hansgrohe Croma 100 Vario.

Don't forget our simple hack of adding an inline flow rate filter for under £10 - a solution that will reduce bill by 50%-60%.

But if the editor pick isn’t for you, fear not, we’ve got you covered with a “shower of alternate options” …. (See what I did there)

Best Electric Showers ( In order)

1. Mira Sport Electric Shower

Our Pick for Best Electric Shower



This Mira Sport budget electric shower has plenty of pep, and it provides you with a hot refreshing shower that feels more like a luxury purchase than a budget one.

We love the three power settings option, allowing you to choose how powerful the water is hitting and how much water you are using (we reviewed the 9.8kw electric shower mdel, but you can also choose a range of watts)

This is great for slashing the price of your water bill, alongside keeping the freedom to choose the kind of power you want. 

Got that one irritating family member who likes to use the kitchen sink, just as you jump in the shower? Well, we have the solution. This model automatically adjusts the desired temperature to prevent the water from jumping from icy cold to burning hot water- YOU'RE WELCOME. 

When you finish using the electric shower, it uses ClearScale phased shutdown to push cold water through the electric shower - avoiding blasts of excess heat that risk burning you. Furthermore, it also helps to flush out limescale and prevent it from building up. 

The instructions for the Mica Sport electric shower model are limited and a little hard to follow. But hey you don't need to be a rocket scientist to fit a electric shower right?

It comes with some handy little extras, such as a soap dish (we all know how soap can be slippery little suckers). There is also a little handle for the shower head to rest, for when you just want to stand and have a dont-bother-me-soak! (Did I just make up a new word?)

The Mira Sport electric shower boasts a modern design. The combination of style and power is a definite winner here. 

The Good Stuff

  • 4 spray options to give you plenty of variety when searching for the best pressure.
  • Steady temperature that helps you stay relaxed throughout your shower.
  •  Sick of the tap being turned on and ruining your shower? Watch this model adjust the temperature automatically.
  • Limescale got you down? This powerful electric shower self-cleans for easy maintenance.
  • An affordable option that provides you with plenty of power without the hefty price tag
  • Great temperature protection system

Specs:

  • Wattage: 9.5Kw (Other sizes available)
  • Size: 21.5 x 9 x 35.8 cm
  • Extra Features: 4 spray patterns shower head, phased shutdown, soap dish
  • Installation Area: Wall

This is one of our favourite electric shower model and certainly knows how to offer power, safety and reliability.

But if you want something with a little less price tag, the Triton Martinique up next ticks that box and more....

2. Triton Martinique Luxury Electric Shower

Our Pick for Luxury Best Electric Shower



Variety is the name of the game with this powerful electric shower from Triton. It has five different spray patterns, allowing you to tailor your cleansing experience perfectly. You’ll be perfectly relaxed before that meeting at the office. 

The three different power settings offer you more freedom when showering, giving you the choice between powerful jets and a gentle eco mode that helps you save water. 

All of the controls are close together and clearly labelled for your peace of mind and to boost that simple functionality (don’t be shy, we all want simple tech in our lives). You can also choose from a good range of wattages, not just the 9.5 Kw reviewed here

Limescale is the common enemy of the home, but this electric shower certainly has you covered. A rush of cold water at the end of each use doesn’t just protect you from scalding water, it also cleanses the system to help prevent limescale buildup - genius. 

No one wants limescale - you let that clog up your electric shower and other home appliances and you may find yourself paying a hefty repair bill or potentially even needing to replace the unit. 

We can’t all be Tommy Walsh, which is why you might be pleased to hear that the installation for this budget electric shower is simple as anything. So much so that you could do it blindfolded… but please don’t, we don’t want the email horror stories. 

You might like to know that our analysis also showed this Triton electric shower model is able to maintain a steady flow rate, so you shouldn’t see drops in water pressure or temperature fluctuations.

Accessories? The Triton keeps this minimal and practical, two things we like. You will find it has a classic arm for holding the shower head as well as a soap dish for, well, your soap and any other shower products that might squeeze on (we all know the soap dish doesn’t get used for soap). 

Despite being a budget model, this Triton shower has a luxurious and modern design that will complement your bathroom decor. It’s compact and neatly organised so that you have clear access to the controls. It’s just a good looking little box of joy.

Good Stuff:

  • Keeps that flow rate steady to stop those morning cries of HOT! COLD!
  • Easy controls that let you sit back and enjoy the time spent soaking
  • Five spray patterns that scream luxury without the hefty price tag
  • Limescale? Not with this self-cleansing shower keeping your system protected
  • Gorgeous design that shouts modernity while remaining sleek and understated

Specs:


  • Wattage: 10.5 (Other sizes available)
  • Size: 58 x 24.5 x 17 cm
  • Extra Features: 5 spray patterns shower head
  • Installation Area: Wall

3. Mira Sport Max with Airboost Electric Shower

Our Pick for Best Electric Shower for Hard Water Areas


Mira Sport Max 10.8Kw with Airboost

Powerful, hot water, consistent, these are all great ways to describe what the Mira Sport Max electric shower can do for you. It’s an electric shower that provides you with everything you need to create the perfect shower - and it comes in a range of wattages. (Go big or go home I say)

The Mira Sport electric shower utilises Airboost technology (it adds airflow to your shower to push the water out quicker, very CLEVER). It boosts performance by an exceptional 30%, all without using a single drop more of water. Saving you money, whilst saving the planet. Win, Win. 

Although a little on the oo-that’s-expensive-side, you can see why when you catch a glance of the premium chrome detailing to complement your ultra-modern bathroom. 

If 10.8Kw is a little electric-hungry for you, go with the 9KW model saving you around £20 upfront, as well as keeping your bill down a little in the long run. (Just think about, the higher the KW, the higher the power YAY, the higher the price NAY). 

The ClearScale phased shutdown is a safety feature that's worth a mention, clearing the system of hot water so that you don’t get any burning surprises during your shower.

Our tests showed that it’s able to maintain a strong and steady flow rate, which means no desired temperature fluctuations or drops in pressure while you are showering.

The system also cleans itself out after use, reducing the risk of limescale, perfect for hard water areas encountered in the UK. 

If you let your electric shower shower head build up limescale, you risk reducing the pressure of the shower and the amount of water the head allows through. All in all, giving you a pretty poor shower experience. 

The contemporary look will boost the aesthetics of any bathroom. Everything merges together smoothly, including the chrome controls which are very simple to use. 

With three different power settings, you can easily find the perfect flow that hits the spot for you.

Worried about installation? The Mira Sport Max electric shower is super simple to install and only takes a few minutes to set up. It’s so EASY, even a child could do it. Just, we wouldn’t recommend letting them try. 

The Good Stuff:

  • Maintains a steady temperature to stop those screams when the water goes cold.
  • Sleek and modern design to fit in with your ultra-trendy bathroom
  • Smooth controls that let you adjust the temperature and spray pattern to really make your shower your own
  • Airboost technology creates a pleasurable flow without wasted energy
  • A whole range of wattages so that you have the right power for your shower

Specs:


  • Wattage: 10.8 (Other sizes available)
  • Control Type: non-thermostatic
  • Size: 7.5 x 21.5 x 35.8 cm
  • Extra Features: 4 spray pattern shower head, phased shutdown
  • Installation Area: Wall

The Mira Sport Max electric shower with Airboost is the ruling monarch of the electric shower world, but it’s also one of the more expensive models (seriously worth every penny). 

But hey, if you don’t require the vavavoom, the previous Triton Martinique electric shower model might be better for you.
