New Electric Shower Range!

We’re very excited to announce the launch of our newest electric shower range – the gse range!

The gse range is our first range of graphite coloured showers – we had increasing demand from our customers to introduce a graphite range alongside our gloss white and satin chrome ranges, so here it is!

Gainsborough gse range

The gse range is available in 3 power ratings: 8.5kW, 9.5kW and 10.5kW so there will be a shower to suit most households. The showers offer easy-to-use controls making them suitable for the whole family to operate.

Electric showers have become increasingly popular in the UK in recent years due to their wide range of benefits. We have previously written a post on the benefits of electric showers.

All of our gse showers are supplied with fully chromed accessories (height adjustable shower rail, shower head and shower hose) to give them a contemporary finish. The 8.5kW and 9.5kW models are supplied with a single spray shower head, while the 10.5kW model is upgraded to a three spray shower head.

Safety Features

All three models in the gse range have a selection of safety features, including:

  • over temperature protection, which protects the user from selecting dangerously high temperatures
  • phased shut down, which switches the shower off gradually, flushing residual hot water from the system – protecting the next user and also reducing limescale build-up around the heating element to prolong the life of the shower.

Replacement Showers

Many of our customers with older Gainsborough electric showers will find that the gse range is a suitable replacement. We’ve listed all relevant shower models and any necessary information on our replacement showers page.

Prices start from £122 for the 8.5 gse electric shower, and all 3 models include free delivery.

Tip of the Day: Don’t Shower With Your Medal!

This summer our eyes are all glued to our TVs as we watch our favourite sporting heroes compete for the chance to become Olympic heroes.

And of course, once that elusive medal has been won – do you really blame the athletes for not wanting to take them off, even in the shower?

One such athlete, 23 year old Brazilian Felipe Kitadai, who won bronze in the -60kg Judo category, was so excited about his victory that he didn’t want to take his medal off at all. In fact, he took a shower with the medal on and dropped it (we’re thinking – slippery hands?) and he later realised that it was broken when he was about to get into bed, you’ve guessed it, with the medal in tow. He saw there was some damage at the top when the ribbon loops through a hoop.

Officials have now agreed to replace the medal after a few hasty phone calls and apologies. Our advice to other winning athletes? Maybe take your prize off before you step into the shower…

We’ve Got A Shiny NEW Electric Shower Range!

We’ve just launched a brand new range of electric showers for 2012, and we’re very excited about it – we can’t wait to tell you all about our GSX Range! The range comprises 3 brand new showers, (so there’s a choice to suit all budgets) and they’re exclusively available to order from us online. Plus,  for a limited time only, we’re offering these showers from £79.99 – so make sure you snap one up before the offer runs out!*

The GSX range offers 3 choices – the GSX, GSX Plus and GSX Deluxe. Standard on each of the showers are the following features:

  • Four temperature settings (including a full COLD setting – perfect for hot summer days or after exercise);
  • A low-pressure warning indicator (helpful, should there be any water supply issues);
  • Complete with an adjustable height, 3 spray pattern handset (providing comfort for the whole family).

The GSX Shower

Upgrade to the GSX Plus or Deluxe, and you’ll be rewarded with some rather sophisticated features, (if we do say so ourselves!) which we’ll explain later on in the post.

So, Why Go Electric?

Electric showers are great for all types of installations – new or replacement showers. Installations are usually straightforward when replacing an old shower, but if you are upgrading or downgrading the power rating or installing a brand new shower, make sure your shower is installed by a Part P registered electrician.

Electric showers do not rely on your home’s stored hot water supply, meaning they can be an energy and cost efficient option. They heat water on demand, meaning that they’re ideal for a second or en-suite bathroom and will not deplete your hot water reserve.

And there’s also peace of mind with our GSX range – they’re all safe and easy to use for the whole family. With either simple push buttons (GSX Plus and Deluxe) or rotary controls (GSX), it’s easy to choose one of the 4 heat settings available. Enhanced controls on the GSX Plus (LED illumination) and the GSX Deluxe (LCD display) provide visual feedback for more assured showering.  

Handsets

We think the new GSX handsets are also pretty cool – each model has a three spray, multi-mode handset supplied, allowing you to choose a spray pattern to suit your mood. Whether you want a refreshing shower to wake you up first thing in the morning, or something a little more relaxing before bedtime, there’ll be a spray pattern to suit. Depending on which model you go for, you’ll have either a white or chrome handset to complement your shower.

The GSX range has been designed and styled to complement any type of bathroom – whether contemporary or traditional. Each of the showers is finished in stylish, bright white with chrome and white detailing, depending on the model. Plus, all GSX showers come with a 2 year parts and labour guarantee as well as FREE next working day delivery!

Gainsborough GSX Plus Electric Shower – The Ideal Family Shower

The GSX Plus will automatically switch to a lower heat setting if an excessively high heat setting is selected. Meanwhile, unpleasant, hot water ‘hangovers’ are eliminated, thanks to the GSX Plus’ phased shutdown: hot water left over at the end of a shower is flushed from the element as soon as the shower is turned off – ensuring the next user doesn’t receive a burst of hot water and also helping to reduce limescale build-up.
