Any plumbers on here who can recommend an electric shower?

Our gainsborough 10.5 se has just packed in after 2 years - to be fair its performed well and used about 4 times a day.

We have 50ma cable / fuse and 15mm cold water feed.
Cheers

What size cable is it mate? Mira are pretty good for electric showers and you want the highest KW you can get. I believe on a 6mm cable you're only supposed to run upto a 7.5 kw shower.

Hi - thanks for reply- cable is huge to a 50a trip fuse - ran the 10.5 no probs. Found a local company who will replace with an mx shower £220 fitted & 2 yr guarantee. I hadn't heard of them, but he rates them - never had any comeback and they are very flexible in terms of pipe and cable entry points.
