Kids Back at School? Time To Clean Up!

Well, the summer holidays are now well and truly over – the kids are back at school and already getting ready for harvest festival and thinking about Halloween at the end of the month. So, now that the summer craziness has subsided, don’t let the Back to School Blues get to you – it’s the ideal time to have a good tidy up and complete some of the tasks you weren’t able to do over the summer.

back to school

The bathroom lends itself perfectly to an autumn renovation. After a busy summer of kids running in and out, jumping in the shower to wash off sand and dirt, it’s not difficult for a family bathroom to suffer and be in need of a little TLC. And now the kids are back at school, there are fewer distractions around to allow you to really crack on and get some work done. And what better place to start than with the bathroom shower?

Cold Weather Problems

Autumn is a sensible time to buy new showers. Many older showers tend to struggle in the winter so it makes sense to upgrade before the cold weather kicks in. This is because the incoming water becomes much colder, and as a result, electric shower flow rates will typically decrease as the shower struggles to heat the water to the usual desired temperatures.  If you think your shower is coming to the end of its life, it may be simpler to upgrade now.

Electric Showers – great for all budgets

So, if it’s an electric shower you’re after, you can find some fantastic bargains at the moment that will really make an impact on your bathroom design. Our new range of GSX electric showers currently start from only £79.99 – not likely to blow anyone’s budget. But this is a limited time introductory offer so you’ll need to act fast!

The GSX range prides itself on sophisticated gloss white finishes and chrome detailing making them ideal for any style of bathroom – either contemporary or more traditional.

Reward a Summer of Sport with a soothing shower

This summer has been a truly epic Summer of Sport – from Euro 2012, Wimbledon and the Tour de France, to the London Olympics and now the Paralympics – we’ve been spoilt with the choice of sport to watch this year. And it seems that our British sporting heroes, such as Sir Chris Hoy, Bradley Wiggins and Jessica Ennis, have been inspiring more and more of us to get out and about and involved in sport.

And whether you’ve been discovering new cycle routes, heading down to your local stables or joining your local sailing club, there’s one thing that most of us love after an hour or two’s sporting effort – a nice, refreshing shower! We’re celebrating our super summer of sport with our new GSX range – which are currently available at special introductory prices, starting at just £79.99, until 23rd September.

Our new GSX range is perfect for sporty types. Electric showers are instantaneous, heating water on demand at any time of the day – ideal for when you need a quick, refreshing shower. What’s more, each GSX model has 4 heat settings, including a full cold setting which is perfect for the ultimate cool down after doing exercise.

And with easy to use controls – either simple rotary or push buttons depending on the model you choose – there will be no awkward controls to contend with – which must be welcome after spending a couple of hours in the pool or on the bike. Upgrade to the GSX Plus or Deluxe and you’ll also benefit from additional safety features (see our website for full details), although all of the models in the range have low pressure warning indicators.

Each model has a shower head with a choice of 3 spray patterns – meaning you’ll be able to choose the perfect spray for you, depending on how tired you are from your workout!

What Are The Best Showers For Large Families?

Summer is (apparently) approaching fast, and this time of year typically brings summer holidays from school, and lots of playing outside for the kids. Summer is the time of year when children love to get outside and play, which usually ends up with them getting as muddy as possible.

So, the little monsters are more likely to make trips to the bathroom to wash and shower off. It’s therefore important to think about what type of shower would be best to cope with the extra demand that the summertime brings.

Households with large families may find that an electric shower is the best option to ensure hot water is available at any time of the day. Electric showers provide instant hot water, which means there is no waiting for the hot water tank to fill up if someone else has had a shower before you. Electric showers feed off the mains cold water and are completely independent from your household’s hot water system. They have an internal heating element, which heats the cold water as it passes through, to deliver you a nice, warm shower.

Electric showers can also be an economical choice for families, as they only heat the water required so there is no wasted hot water sitting unused in a cylinder.

So whether it’s a muddy football match, or a wet fishing trip, the summer will no doubt bring with it lots of showers (and hopefully not from the weather!)
