The results of our power shower survey reveal which shower brands are most likely to impress. Find out which power shower brand you should buy.

We’ve asked hundreds of Which? members about their power showers and used these results to help you choose between big power shower brands Aqualisa, Mira and Triton.

Aqualisa is the most popular brand - 29% of power shower users we surveyed bought one. It's closely followed by Mira (27%). But popularity doesn't always mean a product is great.

We uncovered a big difference between how reliable the power shower brands are. Nearly four in ten owners of one particular brand experienced a fault.

We also ask shower owners to rate important elements of using a shower, such as build quality, stability of water temperature, and how strong the flow of water is. Buying the right shower is key if you want to look forward to lovely, hot showers with a good, steady pressure.

How Which? rates power shower brands

In May 2016 we surveyed 1,732 Which? members about their experiences with the shower they bought in the last five years.

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

Electric shower reviews

If you're considering an electric shower instead of a power shower, we've independently tested a wide range in our lab, and found big difference between models. 

One shower plummeted to an icy 11°C, while another rose to a scaling 55°C when water was turned on elsewhere. Make sure you buy an electric shower that keeps a stable temperature by visiting our electric shower reviews
