When installing a shower into a newly renovated bathroom, or simply replacing a more tired model, homeowners will always want the most convenient and easy to use system. Usually that stems to whether you install either an electric or digital shower. What does this mean for you, as the installer? Is there much difference installing an electric shower to the digital variety and what should you keep in mind when advising your customer?
Differences in installation
There is only one dominating difference between electric and digital showers when it comes to installing - the water source.
Electric showers simply need a cold water source to be installed, this allows greater flexibility in positioning. Electric showers work by running cold water over a separate and sealed heating element. This does allow electric showers to be placed in pretty much any room that has a cold water connection.
In comparison, digital showers draw water from separate hot and cold water connections, leading to a digital mixing processor before being pumped to the shower head, enabling the perfect showering experience. In this instance installing a digital shower requires an easy connection to both hot and cold water, as well as direct access to the digital mixing processor for future maintenance.
