Evening chaps,

I have a customer who has an old Mira Event that has given up the ghost and wants it replacing. I haven't done many showers at all so have a few (very basic questions). They want like for like, I've told them this seems to be an old product and now appears to be the Mira Event XS. Can anyone confirm this? Also (and I'm so sorry for the stupidity) but I just assumed electric showers were always thermostatic, however, the Event XS seems to be manual or thermostatic. With just a cold feed surely I can't install the manual one as I assume this will have both a hot and cold inlet. Can anyone confirm? Lastly, has anyone installed a cheaper shower (coming in at about £250+vat) that is a good match. By the looks of it the inlet just goes straight through the wall into the unit into a rear facing elbow I guess. I've tended to walk away from stuff that I haven't done much of before but have that I'm never going to be any good if I don't start taking more leaps of faith. Oh and Merry Christmas!

The Mira Event is not an electric shower, it runs off gravity fed hot and cold and is a power shower [integral pump]. Manual or thermostatic, expensive but good units in my experience.

I agree. It is a power shower - simply a pump with a little motor attached to it & a thermostatic cartridge (if the thermostatic model).
The old unit will probably have a failed motor. This comes in an all in one pump/motor part which costs about £100 & is really simple to replace. But usually all is wrong with the motor is the brushes, which Showerdoc sell for £18 & are a few minute job to replace.
