Best Low Pressure Electric Shower for 2020

Last updated: June 7, 2020

Low pressure in water piping troubles a lot of people. Most of us had the opportunity to "enjoy" a shower with a low water pressure, where the water barely sprayed out of the showerhead. On top of that, ordinary electric showers often refuse to run with insufficient water pressure! Luckily for us, electric shower manufacturers came up with a solution and created pumped electric showers (or low-pressure electric showers). What does it mean?

A pumped electric shower uses  ... yeah, you guessed it right, a pump to raise the water pressure so you can have a comfortable shower. Awesome for all of those with water pressure problems.

Do I need a "pumped" low-pressure electric shower?

The decision process for this question is extremely straightforward. Here are the two questions you need to answer first:

  • Is your shower water stream uncomfortably weak?
  • Does an ordinary electric shower refuse to run in your bathroom due to low water pressure?

If you answered any of these two questions yes, then definitely consider a pumped electric shower. If you don't suffer from any of those problems, you will be better off with an ordinary electric shower.

For example, if your water supply is just a water tank on the roof, the pumped shower has an internal mechanism to pump and increase the flow of water through it, which results in a stronger water stream from the showerhead.

These are the best low-pressure electric showers for 2020:

Mira Elite St Pumped 9.8kW

Low pressure electric shower

High-quality electric shower with an integral pump to increase the water pressure.

  1. The only downside I have with our electric shower is that when the winter is here the water from the mains, feeding the shower, is colder. We have the small problem of reduced water pressure through the Electric Shower, as it has to heat colder water. Will the purchase of a 10kW shower increase the water flow??

  2. If the water pressure is not the problem, then it should. But the difference between let's say 9.5 kW and 10.5kW is only 10 percent, so it might be hard to notice.

  3. I need an electric shower for summer's low water pressure during near-droughts.
    The shower wiring is 30A, perfectly adequate for 7kW or even 7·5kW showers.
    Why oh why are most modern showers getting higher & higher kW when people's house wiring is rarely more than 40A, which will still only take a max 9·6A shower but many showers are 10A?!
    It reminds me of vacuums, all trying to outdo each other with wattage, up from 600W a few years ago to 2kW now!
    What about energy efficiency?
    I just want a 7kW low-pressure electric shower (or thermostatic electric shower) but no-one makes one. (Reason I keep saying "electric shower" instead of just "shower" is so as not to be confused with "power shower" which turns out to be just a glorified shower mixer, requiring a [bath's] hot water tank.)
