Tritan , Mira, Gainsborough, Redring, just to name a few of the makes available . 8.5, 9.5, 10.5 Kw power ratings . What is suitable for you. 1st job check your fuse board, do you have a spare way and does it have RCD protection ?. This is the most important question, wether its a new installation or replacement of an existing unit. If you dont have RCD protection then the first job is either a new fuse board or a seperate shower consumer unit.
Any work in the bathroom by law has to be certified and building control informed , This is a typical Stand alone shower consumer unit Typical Cost of shower consumer unit installed with incoming tail splitter box earthing etc, including certification £ 250
Illustraion picture only the actual consumer unit could be B&G Hager or as shown Wylex Replacement Main Metal Case Fuseboard with RCD protection and earth bonding incoming tails brought up to standard including certification allow for a cost of..............£ 490
Existing shower replacement, we find most existing shower wiring is 6mm twin and earth, this is okay for a 8.5 Killowatt replacement but you can,t replace it with a more powerful unit as the wiring can't supply the required power.
If you want to increase the specification of the shower then the supply wiring will have to be changed to a 10mm twin and earth cable from the consumer unit through the shower pull switch to the shower itself. Depending on the lengh of cable required and the cost of copper at the time of install allow approx £ 180 - 250 for cable installation.
Then there is the shower, depending on the make and model can cost from £ 100 to £ 400
