Electric showers are quite popular because of the convenience it provides when it comes to installation and use. Electric showers only need a constant supply of cold water. The unit would heat up the water as it passes through and so you don’t need to store water. They also don’t need to use a pump and the water flow depends on the level of the wattage. To find out about how electric showers work, go ahead and read this article. This article would be focusing on two popular electric shower brands which consumers often find hard to pick one.
Mira Showers or Triton, which is better?
Triton Electric Shower:
Starting with the Triton, it is super popular because of the heating element it uses to heat up the water it supplies. Instead of using a boiler like some other electric shower brands, which add a heap of additional costs, the Triton simply uses a built in heating element.
Another thing to consider is the installation. One thing about a lot of electric shower brands is that they are not very flexible when it comes to installation and where to place it. The Triton electric showers feature five entry points that can be used for cables and water feeds. This makes it really straightforward for your plumber to install it into the installation area, and when installation is easy, it would be cheap too.
Triton is also very easy to use too. To control the shower, all you have to do is move the number control dial that is in front of the panel so you can increase the temperature or decrease it. Some Triton models feature a three flow rate setting to control the water output and an ECO mode. The shower hose is very flexible and the head allows you to pick which flow setting you want.
Mira Electric Showers:
In the case of Mira Showers, it isn’t as popular as the Triton because it is more expensive, but this electric shower is still more powerful and has a more modern look than the Triton. For installation, the system covers any cracks made in the wall for the shower.
It is also a little more expensive to install than the Triton, although you don’t have to spend money on tiling the wall again. You would also have to have a 15 mm inlet connector and your electrical supply must be as high as 45 amp. This electrical shower isn’t digital like the Triton, but the controls are also very easy to operate. The unit has push buttons for low flow rate, high flow rate and an ECO mode. It also has a dial that you use to control the temperature of the water.
The showerhead in Mira Showers is larger than a lot of electric shower brands and it has four flow settings. It also has the Opti-Flo technology that protects you from extremely cold or hot water. Another plus for this electric shower is the fact that it is super durable. It protects itself from dirt and limescale and so it lasts for a very long time.
Looking at these two electric shower brands, the Triton is perfect if you are looking for something cheap and reliable, but the Mira is ideal if you need something more powerful and you’re willing to pay extra.
I would recommend the Triton, because it offers almost the same features as the Mira, but at a cheaper price. Now, if you’ve decided to buy an electric shower, you better choose the right unit for your bathroom.

Nonetheless, if you were stuck between Triton and Mira Showers, I hope I’ve helped you in some way to make your decision.
