Fitting Electric Showers
It is compulsory under Part P of the building regulations to use a registered Part P-certified plumber or electrician to replace your shower. Showers are located under specified locations called Special Locations and are therefore notifiable if they are altered or replaced. Electric showers combine water and electricity, so it is important that they are installed correctly and safely. Even If you’re replacing an existing electric shower unit like-for-like, you are still required to use a registered Part P-certified plumber or electrician
What is a special location?
A room containing a bath or shower is considered as a special location. The space inside and surrounding a bath or shower is given specific zones 0-2. Specific types of equipment and voltages can be used within these zones so it is very important to use a qualified electrician who can identify where equipment can be installed.
