If you’re installing a completely new unit, you’ll need a certified plumber or electrician to do electric shower fitting. But if you’re replacing your old unit with one that’s exactly the same, you may be able to do it yourself. To be on the safe side, request a Tasker to do electric shower installation for you. This keeps you and your family safe, especially when it comes to a device that combines water and electricity.
Either a certified plumber or electrician can do this for you, though Airtasker also has electric shower installation specialists who can help. They’ll install the device, upgrade or check the wiring, and make sure that your power shower is working properly.

You'll need a water supply with a strong enough water pressure. You'll also need a pump that's located near the water tank, plumbing, hot water storage, an electrical supply, and water cut off. Lastly, your power shower will need a mixer valve and thermostatic control to help manage the temperature of the water.
To learn more about what you’ll need for a power shower installation, consult with an electric shower installation specialist near you.
First and foremost, switch off the electricity from the mains before trying to repair your electric shower. Next, troubleshoot the device. Is the water tepid? You may have a burned out switch or failing heating element. Unreliable temperature? You'll need to check the mains valve or cut-off tap. Water leaking from the bottom of the unit? You'll need to use a pressure relief device, or better yet request a leaking shower repairman.
Airtasker’s electric shower installation specialists can typically install brand-new electric and power showers as well as replace old units. These experts are legally required (at least, in countries like the UK) to be certified plumbers or electricians because of the nature of the appliance. That’s why Airtasker requires that you ask the Tasker for proof of their credentials before you hire them, and when they arrive at your door. This extra precaution keeps you and your home safe.
While the specifics may vary depending on the Tasker you’re working with, here’s what you can expect from a typical electric or power shower fitting job:
When you get a Tasker to do power shower installation, you won’t need to prepare your own toolkit or drive to the hardware to get tools like a drill, pipe cutter, masonry bit, and so on. Your Tasker arrives with all the equipment they’ll need. And if necessary, they’ll be the ones to run down to the story before or during the course of the job.
To save on time, we recommend telling your Tasker what model of the electric shower or power shower you have. This helps them prep their toolkit for your appointment.
Electric shower installation starts with you pointing out the unit and where you want it installed. You’ll want to specify your desired height for the shower, especially if you have kids in the family or if anyone is particularly tall or petite.
Then, the electric shower installation specialist assesses if the water supply to that area is enough for the device (usually a mains cold water supply with a 15 mm diameter pipe). They’ll mark holes in the wall, drill them, then bore a hole for a copper branch pipe. This pipe will connect the showerhead to the main water valve. Then, the Tasker cuts the pipe and inserts it into the hole, attaches a stopcock and T-joint, and attaches the shower onto the wall.
The next part is the electric component: the Tasker bores a hole in the ceiling and runs a circuit cable through it. They’ll fix and connect the wires - a process which includes stripping cables and using wire sleeving. Finally, the Tasker connects the wires and links them to the terminal. They’ll check if the shower is running smoothly, have you test it yourself, and voila! Your electric shower is now ready for use.
