Hi, could anyone give me an approximate figure for supplying and fitting an electric shower please? Hope you don't mind me asking, I don't think I have ever been in this section of the forum before.

Thank you in advance. Esther x

    Could be anything. Power shower (pumping preheated water) or electric shower (heating cold water)? Model? New electric cabling needed? etc etc...

    Oh, sorry, if I say a mid range that isn't a power shower would that help?

    We already have an electric shower but it has died. The plumber is very busy and we have to wait for him to come out. Not a problem but I just wanted an idea so that I can plan my budget. Esther

    A replacement shower shouldn't cost very much to install as all the pipework and cabling is already in place. Not much more than £50 depending on your local demand for plumbing/electrical services....oh and plus the cost of whatever model you want to buy which you can find the pricing on any web site selling shower units.

    Thank you. That's a big help. We had a new bathroom (not this one) a few years ago and the cost of fitting was so high in relation to the cost of a suite that I thought it may be hundreds to fit. Esther

    £ 50 ????? Really don’t see that from a qualified person even a cowboy ? defiantly not from a plumber qualified to do electrics and neither for and electrician qualified for plumbing there are more often both trades involved plumber disconnecting/reconnecting pipe work electrician doing wiring if either does both I’d be expecting at least £150 straight swap like for like and if the pipe work needs changing or cable needs upgrading fuse needs replacing etc £200 -£500 …
