    Power shower run off combi? 5th Dec 17 at 2:10 PM
    Hi, Iím in a new build and I have 2 showers. Both run off a combi boiler. I have the below in the cupboard where the boiler is, Iím not sure if itís a power shower unit? But as far as I understand it one of these canít be ran off the boiler?

    thats a control unit for your shower, its NOT a "power shower".

    its a digital thermostatic shower valve, so it takes hot water from the boiler and mixes it with cold water from the mains to give you the temp you select on the shower control.

    It would appear to be a thermostatic shower valve - see link
