Thermostatic Shower System Buying Guide
Nowadays more and more people choose to use a thermostatic shower system rather than pressure balance shower system. The best thermostatic shower systems utilize the advanced technology to create a soothing environment that helps reduce stress and promote relaxation.
If you are looking to upgrade or renovate your bathroom design, a thermostatic shower system deserves your consideration.
But with so many options available, it can be challenging to know which system is right for you. In this guide, we'll explore what's a thermostatic shower, how does it work and how to choose and fit a thermostatic shower.
What is thermostatic shower system
A thermostatic shower system is a type of shower fixture that automatically balances hot and cold water supplies to maintain a consistent temperature throughout the duration of your shower. Unlike traditional showers, thermostatic showers provide precise temperature control, preventing sudden fluctuations in temperature caused by flushing toilets, running taps, or other household activities. Additionally, a thermostatic shower protects against accidental scalding and ensures a safe and comfortable bathing environment. A thermostatic shower is a valuable investment for those seeking a high-quality shower experience and peace of mind knowing that their water temperature is consistently safe and comfortable.
How a thermostatic shower system works?
The thermostatic shower can intelligently adjust and automatically balance the water pressure of cold water and hot water through the thermostatic adjustment valve core of the faucet to maintain a constant temperature of the outlet water. During normal use, manual adjustment is completely unnecessary. Thermostatic showers sense the actual temperature of the incoming water to maintain a steady temperature. These showers allow you to select the temperature and volume independent of each other.
A thermostatic valve actually controls the temperature of the water itself. It maintains a constant temperature like a pressure-balance valve does. There are two handles for setting up, one for the water volume and one for the temperature.
The pros and cons of a thermostatic shower system:
- A thermostatic shower valve offers precise control of temperature and water flow, creating an enjoyable showering experience while saving on water. Combining independent control of temperature and flow, you can enjoy your showers with greater ease.
- Anti-scald and anti-cold shock: The thermostatic water mixing valve has anti-scald and anti-cold shock functions. During the bathing process, when the cold water is suddenly interrupted, the thermostatic water mixing valve can automatically turn off the hot water in a few seconds to prevent scalds.When hot water is suddenly interrupted, the thermostatic mixing valve can automatically shut off the cold water within a few seconds to prevent cold shock. With its precise temperature control, a thermostatic shower system can guarantee that the water never gets too hot or too cold, this means you can enjoy total comfort without worrying about scalding yourself.
- High temperature resistance: The internal components of the thermostatic water mixing valve are made of high temperature resistant materials whichcan work normally at high temperatures of 100 degrees Celsius.
- Built-in filter: The thermostatic mixing valve comes with a filter to prevent debris from entering the valve body and affecting the normal operation of the thermostatic mixing valve.
- Multiple head using together: You can use it with multiple heads in one shower, which you cannot do with a pressure-balance valve. When using more than one shower head, they all maintain water at the same temperature, but individual users can control their own volume.
- Cost more: The price is higher than that of ordinary shower heads, because the process of constant temperature shower heads is more complicated, and the price will also be higher than that of ordinary shower heads.
- Water pressure problem: If the water pressure in your home is too low or the difference between hot and cold water is too large, the water will automatically turn on protection and stop the water flow.
- Water quality requirements: If the water quality is too hard, it will affect the performance of the thermal element after a period of use. The thermal element is the key component to maintain a constant water temperature, and it will also affect the water temperature.
Factors to consider when choosing a thermostatic shower system:
Temperature Control: A thermostatic shower system is designed to maintain a constant temperature, even when other taps in the house are turned on or off. This feature ensures that your shower remains comfortable throughout its duration.
Water Pressure: The pressure of the water supply in your area can affect the performance of a thermostatic shower system. Make sure to check the minimum and maximum pressure requirements for any system you're considering to ensure it will work well with your plumbing setup.
Style and Finish: A thermostatic shower system should complement the style of your bathroom. Choose a design that matches the decor and color scheme, whether contemporary or traditional. Bostingner Shower system offers different finishes such as chrome, brushed nickel gold or black to bring you multiple choices.
Installation Requirements: Some thermostatic shower systems require professional installation, while others can be installed by DIY enthusiasts. Check the installation instructions carefully to determine what level of expertise is required. Additionally, make sure that any necessary components such as rough-in valves are included in the package.

- Drain the Plumbing System: Drain the plumbing system to remove any excess water from the pipes before installing the new thermostatic shower.
- Remove the Old Shower: Unscrew the old shower unit from the wall and disconnect any pipes and wires.
- Install the New Shower Unit: Connect the new thermostatic shower unit to the pipes and wires according to the manufacturer's instructions. Make sure to follow any specific recommendations regarding placement and orientation.
