When considering installing an electric shower always make sure that you speak with an expert electrician or bathroom fitter first, as the types of shower are varied and the costs likewise. The shower unit itself will make up a significant part of the cost of installation, but the labour of your electrician will also be a major part of the cost. You will also need to consider whether you have costs such as shower pan, shower door or extra tiling to add as well.

If this is a simple installation over a bath then the cost can be kept to a minimum. Installing an electric shower is something of a specialist job, as even the simplest of installations will include an element of plumbing work. So make sure that your electrician is someone who is experienced with this kind of work so that you are guaranteed a safe, clean and timely installation.

Whether you have your shower hooked up to a water tank or your mains water supply will also influence the price. Installing a shower of this kind will take around half a day but could take far more if you are having fittings and doors installed at the same time.
