Where to take water supply to electric shower above bath

Postby mech_man » Wed Feb 08, 2023 12:32 pm


I am planning to install an electric shower in a flat above an existing bath and there is also a basin next to it. I am not sure what the best and quickest option to route the supply pipe to the shower so I would be grateful if anyone could guide me in the right direction, please. I've attached a photo of the bathroom as well.

Simply Build It

Hi mech_man,
If you are fitting an instantaneous electric shower you will need a cold mains feed and a fairly heavy electric cable. Both could be buried in the wall above the bath taps, you can then make good and tile over.
