    Mira SE Electric Shower Water Connection

    I've installed a Mira SE shower. My query. The instructions indicate a vertical rising or a falling pipe connection. I connected in a horizontal direction. As the shower connector swivels I can't see a reason to have it only in a rising or falling type connection position, except in the...

    Bathroom Extractor Next to Shower Head

    Doing an Eicr and the 230v timed class 1 bathroom extractor is less than 200mm next to the shower head. I see this as a C2 and would insist on it being changed to at least a 12v fan or even better a new location. Welcome any thoughts

    Email from customer about shower pump

    This could be interesting. Any thoughts/predictions: I have a pump operated shower – in the past year the pump has been replaced 3 times as it stopped working – but the plumber is at a loss to the problem and said it must be something to do with the electrics? This makes sense, because if I go...

I was under the impression and stand to be corrected that an 8.5kw would be fine for that cable as long as...
