Mira, Redring and Triton showers compared: which is best?

With some of the cheapest Best Buys costing less than £100, you don't need to splash out to have a good shower. But how do the biggest brands compare?

We've tested 17 new showers from Mira, Redring, Triton and more. We've made four Best Buys, meaning some that cost less than £100 outshone showers four times more expensive.

Our tests include how well showers keep a steady temperature of 40°C, both under normnal conditions and when someone else is running water in the home, such as washing-up or flushing the toilet.

Read on to see how showers from Mira, Redring and Triton compare on price, controls and features.

Redring showers tend to be cheap, with back-to-basics designs and not much in the way of extras.

This could make it ideal for first time home buyers or those looking to save, with the Redring Pure (pictured below) costing just £54.

Or you could opt for the more expensive Redring Bright shower. It's identical to the Pure (the same controls and design), but has more features.

With the shower head that comes supplied with it has three different spray patterns to choose from. Plus, it has a soap dish.

Buy the Redring Pure 9.5kW from Showerstoyou for £54 or buy the Redring Bright 9.5kW for £84.

We've found cheap Best Buy showers in the past, with many able to better deal with changes in water pressure than showers four times the price.

What's the most efficient electric shower?

Generally the more powerful a shower is the more energy and water it uses.

All showers will heat water up to a set temperature in the same way, so biggest differences mostly come from how powerful the shower is - if less water is going through the shower, it will use less energy.

That's why we check the eco mode for how much it saves compared to when the shower is on full power.

The eco modes that are easiest to use, and that save the most energy and water, will help you reduce your use.

An eco shower head can help make lower water pressure feel more powerful, helping you to use less. Read our guide to whether you should get an eco shower head.

Which? electric shower reviews

We test showers from the biggest brands every year to find the Best Buys that won't have you waiting for it to heat up, or have it jumping in temperature everytime someone runs a tap at the same time.

The worst can jump in temperature by as much as 6°C when someone else runs the water, giving you quite a shock, while the best stay steady.

We also test:

  • How powerful the shower is in both full power and eco mode
  • How much the temperature changes
  • How long it takes for the shower to get back to the original temperature
  • How much electricity it uses
  • How easy it is to use and install
  • How quiet the shower is
