We've surveyed hundreds of electric shower owners to uncover the top and bottom rated electric shower brands.

We’ve asked more than 1,000 Which? members to tell us all about their electric showers, to enable us to calculate customer and reliability scores for big brands Aqualisa, Gainsborough, Mira and Triton.  

We also asked owners to rate key aspects about their shower, such as how easy it is to get the right water temperature and how stable the temperature is if someone uses mains water elsewhere in your home.

Some brands came out as winners, with high scores and star ratings. Others were less than impressive: the worst brand achieved a customer score of just 55%.

How Which? rates electric showers

In November and December 2013 we surveyed 5,349 Which? members about products in their home and found that almost half of them owned an electric shower.

The Which? customer scores are based on how satisfied Which? members were with their brand of shower, and whether or not they would recommend it to a friend.

In November 2014 we asked 2,296 Which? members to rate brands such as Wickes, Homebase and Plumb Center. They rated the brand's customer service, quality of products and finish and value for money, giving an overall customer score. There was a big difference between them - the best got 81% and the worst just 55%.
