  Product Fiche


The Gainsborough e50 8.5kW electric shower is one of our most economical showers available. A stylish gloss white and chrome finish ensure that this 8.5kW electric shower will look at home in any bathroom setting.

The 8.5kW engine is our most popular engine size and for a good reason; they’re affordable to buy and economical to run. The 8.5kW e50 shower is simple to use too; a power on LED indicator illuminates when the unit has power. The manual rotary heat control has four heat settings to choose from – low, medium, high and full cold, ideal for cooling down after exercise - and the easy glide temperature control ensures you get the water flow you want.

The shower head has four spray patterns to choose from, and cleaning the head is a doddle – simply rub the soft nozzles to remove any limescale build up. The height of the shower head can also be adjusted to suit the user’s comfort.

For peace of mind; low pressure and over heat indicator lights will activate and the shower will switch off should there be any water supply or power issues.

Please note: The e50 8.5kW electric shower has left side cable and pipe entry points so it is not suitable as a replacement product for many other Gainsborough showers. Please check if purchasing this as a replacement shower.

Also available to buy in B&Q stores, the Gainsborough e50 electric shower comes with a 1 year guarantee.
