What is a digital shower & how do they work?

Unlike a traditional shower, a digital shower boasts a digital thermostat within the shower unit. The temperature and flow of the shower is then controlled remotely, by a separate control unit which can either be located in your shower, or elsewhere in the bathroom. The control units communicate with the shower either via a cable, or wireless technology. One of the main advantages of digital showers is that they offer incredibly easy installation, as well as unparalleled control over your shower temperature.
The water inside the shower is controlled by a thermostat, which mixes both hot and cold water – meaning you won’t suffer from changes in temperature when other appliances are used in your home.
Most digital showers allow you to pre programme your perfect showering temperature at just the touch of a button. Other features include touchscreen displays and colour coded displays which show water temperature. One of the most noticeable advantages of a digital shower, especially a wireless unit – is that you don’t have to get in the shower to turn the shower on. This means that you can wait until the water temperature is just right before getting in.

Where can they be used?

Digital Showers are compatible with any heating system – so as long as you have a boiler or immersion heater in your home, you can enjoy the benefits of a digital shower. Digital Showers work the same way as a traditional mixer, but can be installed with the mixing unit hidden in loft spaces or wall cavities. Shower heads can either come from the ceiling or the wall, depending on shower model and your personal preferences.

How much do digital showers cost?

Typically, Digital Showers can cost anything from £400 upwards. At the Shower Doctor however, our purchasing teams have worked hard to provide digital showers kits from just above £200.
