What is a Mixer Shower?

At the Shower Doctor, we pride ourselves in stocking and supplying a fantastic range of showers and shower parts online - all of which represent excellent value for money, quality and performance. Understanding the shower market inside out, our teams are able to recommend the perfect shower for your requirements, whilst saving you some money in the process.

Being so immersed in the world of showering however, it’s important that we remember not all homeowners and buyers of showers know exactly what they are buying, and which shower is right for their exact requirements.

One of the most popular types of shower we supply, are mixer showers. These showers blend hot & cold water within the shower unit itself - so by the time it leaves the shower head, the water is at your desired temperature. Working with your hot and cold water supplies directly, these showers are able to produce a higher water pressure vs an electric shower, one to bear in mind when selecting your next shower.

The most popular type of mixer shower that we supply, is undoubtedly a thermostatic mixer shower. Thermostatic mixer showers are perfect for all households, but especially those with young and older residents. Safety and comfort are the key priorities of the design of a mixer shower, as the system is continuously monitoring and measuring the temperature of the water within the shower, making adjustments to ensure that the chosen, safe temperature comes out of the shower head. This system ensures that if another member of the household turns on a cold tap downstairs or in another room, the person in the shower is not scalded by hot water.
