I have an electric shower with a reasonable amount of pressure, I have been looking at new shower heads as I currently have the one that came with the shower.

Has anyone had experience of changing theirs over for a big head, did you lose lots of pressure? which did you change for? which would you recommend?

you mean flow.

If you have an electric shower (in particular) it only has the power to heat a limited amount of water. For example it might be able to deliver 5 litres per minute of tolerably warm water.

If you try and put 10litres per minute through it, it will only be half as hot.

This is why electric showers are weedy and ineffectual.

Might stick to what I have then, there is so much I want to change in my bathroom, I seem to be doing little jobs when I should wait and do the whole thing at once.

Tap is fixed now smile thank you again John

I did absolutely no research but I changed my shower head and pole/rod/holder to one for 20 quid from Argos you could adjust it so the holes lined up with the old one it's not always falling down anymore and it does the job.

But you're right piglet John I wish my shower was much more powerful in the first place. sad
