What is a mixer shower?

A mixer shower uses both cold and hot water. Mixer showers are a popular choice amongst users who enjoy a variety of temperatures as it gives you fine control over your cold to hot water ratio allowing you to reach your desired temperature effortlessly.

How does a mixer shower work?

A mixer showers operates with a supply of both cold and hot water. Mixer showers mix (hence the name) existing hot and cold water within a valve before dispensing it to the shower head where it is then released at a powerful, yet comfortable flow rate much stronger than most electric showers, dependant on the pressure of your water system. Thinking of purchasing a mixer shower? Read below for an overview on what you can expect when purchasing a mixer shower.

Advantages and disadvantages of mixer showers

Advantages
Flexibility when installing

- Mixer showers can be surface mounted, which means that all of the shower apparatus including the pipes are installed onto your wall, or flush. The workings of the shower are behind the wall and only the shower control system is visible. This creates a more aesthetically pleasing look and feel to your bathroom, adding a sleek and modern style.


Can be used with different water pressures

- Mixer showers can be used with either high pressure or low-pressure water systems. Although, you will need equal pressure for both hot and cold water to use a mixer shower. However, if this is not feasible, you can install a pressure balanced mixer valve to solve this problem.


Simple installation

– Mixer showers are simpler and more straightforward to install, hence why they are one of the most popular shower choices across many households.


Disadvantages
May affect other water outlets

– As mixer showers are connected into an already existing water system, the temperature and water flow of your shower may change when someone flushes a toilet, turns on a kitchen tap or is using a washing machine.


Is not suitable for a house with many occupants

– As the pressure and temperature of a mixer shower can fluctuate when someone uses another water outlet e.g. running hot water from a tap, mixer showers are more suited to one to two occupant households.
