Installing a shower

Cost: Difficulty:


Depending on the type of shower that you wish to install, the shower head must either be fitted in order to prevent it coming into contact with the water in the bath below or the base tray, or it must have a check valve.


First and foremost you must decide on the type of shower that you wish to install.

To investigate the suitability of different types, it may be worth referring to our Choosing a shower page.

It is advisable before starting, to mark the positions of the shower head and control, and to plan the pipework involved (more information on pipework can be found in the Planning a shower section).

Also the drainage system to remove the waste water will need to be planned. Both positions of the cable route and the shower switch will also need to be considered if an instantaneous or electric shower is being installed.
