Central Heating

Postby nathog » Mon Feb 11, 2008 10:19 am

Hi :? :? :? :?

We have central heating in our house which is how our hot water is run from and we are looking into getting an electrical shower but we seem to have a problem as our pipes are covered in by our tiles in the bathroom & our hot tank is upstairs.

Is there anyway that we can get an electrical shower in without having to take any tiles out & without having all wires showing??

I'm real sorry to bother you its just we are a little confused.

Any answer that can help us would be appreciated.

Simply Build It

It depends on where you want the shower, what's on the other side of the wall where the shower will be ? is it possible to drill through the wall for the pipe and cable - then they wont be on show in the bathroom ?

Is there a cavity in the wall where the shower will be fitted ? you'd probably get a cable down, but the pipe would be on show. Chrome pipe doesn't look bad on show in a bathroom.

Hope this helps
