Setting the right budget

How much should you expect to pay?

We know it's difficult to estimate how much a project will cost, that's why we've surveyed our tradesmen to give you an idea of how much you should expect to pay for specific jobs. Tradesmen all across the country have contributed to the cost guides, so the costs you see are an approximate national average.

If your electric shower is not delivering the hot water that you need for your morning shower then you will need to call out an electrician, or a plumber who works with electrics. These are certainly not items that you want to attempt DIY repairs on, although they can be fairly simple for a qualified professional to deal with.

The heating element that warms up your shower water is the part of these sealed units that most often goes wrong. This could be down to wear and tear, a faulty part or a problem with the wiring. In most cases these can be replaced and engineers who work with showers will carry common parts with them or be able to access spares quickly.

Repairing your electric shower

If the flow of water is not as strong as you are used to, then this could be a problem with the pump, which may need repairing or replacing. These items can be impacted by wear and tear over the years and your electrician should be able to swap it for a newer model.

Faults can also develop with the control panel and switches that control heat and water flow on your electric shower. There can also be problems with pipework, which connects the pump and heater to the water supply. For this reason it is always best to call out an electrician who specialises in dealing with showers, or a plumber who also works with electric showers.
